She and Spike (known as William) establish a friendship, but after a year, Willow’s in trouble, and Buffy has to return to the Cleveland hellmouth. Buffy POV.

Buffy and Spike were settled into their life together and had their routine down with their seven-month-old son.

What could possibly go wrong this time?
