Fan favorite character Wesley Wyndam-Pryce makes his first appearance in this stand-alone issue that will change everything you know about the Watchers! After the devastating effects of Hellmouth, the Watcher's Council convenes to make sure it never happens again. But when recent Watcher initiate Wesley Wyndam-Pryce stumbles across a dark secret, he learns of a conspiracy decades in the making — one that binds Robin, Giles and the Slayer Before together, and shows just how far the Watchers will go to protect the earth.[1]

  • As suggested after Kendra entered the Hellmouth (Hellmouth, Part Five), it is revealed that a third Slayer has been called.
