(Part 3)

Cover B

Doffler and Sevrin reach the Core of the Deeper Well, the tomb of Earth’s greatest evils; but as the Siphon begins to drain the powerful energy held there, Sevrin sneaks off on her own agenda. Buffy and Willow leave the Council to their own devices and head off into the Core in pursuit of their two enemies; then Willow’s chest begins to glow red – indicating that there is enough magic in the Core to save the world. Seeing Dawn literally fading away before his eyes, Spike phones Xander and gives him the chance to say goodbye to his girlfriend. Using the red light to lead their way, Willow and Buffy soon come across an open sarcophagus marked with an ancient symbol: the tomb of Maloker, the demon who sired the first vampires – and Sevrin has just resurrected it…
