Left alone to fight the zompires after Buffy’s mysterious disappearance, Billy is unable to prevent Detective Dowling from being attacked and badly wounded. Luckily for them both, they are rescued by a VTF police squad armed with stakes, and Dowling is rushed to hospital. Elsewhere, Buffy finds herself facing Illyria and a council of magical elders, including former foe D’Hoffryn; these last few beings with power have banded together against a common foe, Severin, and they now want Buffy to join their number. Answering Billy’s call, Xander and a flu-ridden Dawn rush to the hospital to join his vigil over Dowling; but then Dawn’s condition worsens, and she collapses… Meanwhile, Buffy, Illyria and Eldre Koh team up to bring down Severin – only to learn that he has been expecting them…
