"A Dark Place, Part Four" was the fourth issue of the Spike: A Dark Place comic book series.
While on their way to Morgan's destination, an unknwown Hellmouth, the bugs were making contigency plans because they feared Spike was falling under the spell of the Succubus. At the same time Spike wandered into the solarium where Morgan also was, she questioned him about Buffy, having put the pieces together herself. Just as she was about to offer him comfort for the sorrow he was feeling the bugs announced over the intercom that they were descending. In the cockpit Sebastian and Frisky were further discussing the Morgan situation when Spike and Morgan entered so they quickly changed the topic to the location they had reached; Easter Island. Morgan explained that the Easter Island Statues had been erected by natives to warn people away from the island which housed a Hellmouth.
Meanwhile Frisky told Sebastian that if would not act, Frisky would, upon which Sebastian had Frisky arrested. At the same time Morgan was indeed coming on to Spike, revealing that she wanted to leave because she had no purpose, but that she could stay for him instead. Spike rejected her though, but in doing so he realised why Buffy had turned him down. When Morgan continued to come onto him, Spike caved in and they kissed. But only briefly, because Spike pulled away and once again rejected her because it was not real. Morgan slapped him for this then she said she wanted to leave.
Spike then realised that she had had a shard of the Seed all along. Morgan turned into her true Succubus self and a fight broke out. The bugs intervened quickly by taking off so as to get far away from the Hellmouth and capturing Morgan in an electrified net. Also Sebastian released Frisky. Morgan broke out of the net however and jumped through the necrotempered window. Spike had his ship turned around to pursue her. Morgan landed near some statues and threw up to retrieve the shard of the Seed she had swallowed.
