After the events of Dead Things, Buffy finds herself losing time. And having strange dreams of a dorm room where a young woman died. A death being investigated by a very familiar looking man named William Pratt, who acts as if he had long ago been abused in a relationship with Buffy. And out in the waking world, Spike has gone missing, unseen by anyone since Buffy left him beaten and bloody in an alley.
Unsure of what to do about her crumbling relationship or how to keep her sister safe, Buffy uses a crystal made by Willow to trigger a slayer dream. A slayer dream that warns her to be wary of wolves who hide their fur under the skin.
