"What Happens in Vegas, Slays in Vegas"
"You Haven't Changed a Bit"
A flame from the past is haunting Spike's present, and wreaking havoc in Las Vegas, which is already pretty overrun with demons and vampires and your garden variety sins and sinners. But nothing is never that simple when Drusilla is involved, and a new player is about to make things very... difficult for Spike and company.

Brian Lynch's Spike series is considered canon due to Joss Whedon's involvement and the fact that it ties into the "Twilight" and "Last Gleaming" story arcs of Season Eight. Brian Lynch stated on a fan forum:
- ”Yes, it's canon, yes, it matters, and yes, it's the best SPIKE story I've told.”
IDW writer and editor Mariah Huehner reiterated this:
- "Brian's [Spike] series will be "canon" and lead up to his bug ship story in Season 8. And that's not all. So, fans needn't worry. They're going to get 8 amazing issues of Spike that'll show him as the hero he is."
