Virtual Season 8
It's a Whole New Slayground!

“I understand and forgive your curiosity, Katako. But you must trust me in this. Dawn holds the key to what will heal me.” Ethan reached up and tenderly cupped the young Slayer's cheek. “Your station is to protect while hers is to heal. You want that, don’t you? For me to return to my former self?”

“See? What…what’d I tell you, Rupert?” Percy grinned, grimacing. Giles caught Percy’s bloody hand in his and held it tightly. “Fools rush in.”
“Remember this?” Ethan held the etched bracelet out to her accusingly. “You abandoned it, didn’t you? Abandoned me,” he reprimanded her in a harsh tone. He forced the cuff around her bound wrist. “You’ll never abandon me again, Dawn.”

Buffy marched over to the fireplace and unhooked the scythe from its place above the mantel. She gave it an expert spin and headed to the front door.

“Way to work the welcoming party, B,” Faith said with a sly smile.
“Faith?” Buffy said, surprised.
Wood stepped up from behind her. “Did we come at a bad time?”
