Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Kendra The Vampire Slayer — and the all-new Scooby gang — must defend Sunnydale from the aftershocks of the Hellmouth and a new threat that feels very familiar! But can they fill the void left behind by Buffy?
Continuity[edit | edit source]
- Buffy reflects on having lost her best friend, having last seen her in Hellmouth, Part Five.
- Buffy discuss with Robin about the time she was away in the Hellmouth (Hellmouth, Part One–Part Five), which lasted much less than the time on Sunnydale (issues #9 to #12).
- Robin mentions knowing Buffy could "slay" a track, as he praised her running abilities in Welcome Back to the Hellmouth, Part Two.
- Giles talks with Kendra about the Watchers Council not allowing to be with her family like Buffy is, as seen in issue #13.
- Giles talks with Jenny about the Hellmouth having "tested" her, as he had acted short-tempered with her under Hellmother's control in issue #8.
- Jenny argues about Giles' role dealing with Slayers, as she had previously commented with him in issue #6.
- Buffy and Robin kiss for the first time. They had a date in Welcome Back to the Hellmouth, Part Four, but Buffy was too nervous to allow Robin to make a move at the time (issue #5).
- Willow returns to Sunnydale after leaving town in You Don't Have to Go Home.
