Slayer, Interrupted, Part Two is the fifty-seventh issue of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic comic book series. It was written by Scott Lobdell and Fabian Nicieza and illustrated by Cliff Richards.
Synopsis[edit | edit source]
Considering that she burned down the school gym and ran off to Vegas, and the strange entries in her diary, Buffy Summers's parents see no other choice than to have her committed. At the mental institution, Buffy sort of likes not having to slay vampires and demons night after night. But there's something sinister going on here, and the doctors may not be what they appear to be.
Continuity[edit | edit source]
- This story includes the false memories around Dawn Summers, before she was created in "Buffy vs. Dracula."
- Buffy, Dawn, and Joyce Summers are yet to move to Sunnydale, making this story previous to the series' debut episode "Welcome to the Hellmouth."
- Buffy is in an asylum due to her parents not believing she's the Slayer, as she would eventually mention in "Normal Again."
- Buffy recalls spending a week in Las Vegas with Pike slaying vampires ("Viva Las Buffy!").
- Whistler mentions his intentions to forge Buffy into a Slayer capable of closing the Hellmouth once and for all, as she would do in "Chosen."
