In 2002, the Trio chased two vampires by all-terrain vehicles, but they crashed into each other while they escaped to the cemetery's gate. Although, just outside it, Buffy Summers was patrolling and fought the vampires, allowing Warren Mears to take the disk one of them dropped.
As the Trio escaped unnoticed by the Slayer, Spike appeared and hold one of the vampires, offering his help in exchange of her telling their friends about them. Buffy denied, staked the vampires by herself, and left.
