Buffy, Willow, and Spike are still in the “Safe Zone” (i.e. internment camp) out in the Grand Canyon. They know the gov’t is up to something nefarious, but they need to escape to figure out what. When all of the magical creatures are given the option to become “normal” most take it just to get out of the terrible living situation. But there are those who can’t live without their magic (and those who choose not to), so Buffy and Willow give up their magic to get outside. After that, it’s all about Hannibal Smithing. You know, loving when a plan comes together. Because they do have a plan, right? Right?
The thing about Buffy and her Scoobies is, they usually have a workable plan. So you have to kinda go on faith (not that Faith) that what they come up with will work. I wasn’t so sure about this one. I was kept in the dark the entire time as to what the plan might be so I worried it was going to go all FUBAR. Luckily, it mostly didn’t. Ok, that’s also typical of their plans. In any case, well done! Also, I love the artwork. Gorgeous!
