Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten #27

With a super-powered D'Hoffryn unmasked as the true big bad of the season, Season Ten's final arc continues with infighting among Buffy and the Scoobies as there never seems to be enough blame in this issue for the choices each characters has made.

Despite "Hush" and the introduction of Tara, Season Four is the weakest of Buffy the Vampire Slayer's seven seasons on television. Giving the characters enough space to grow, and grow apart, eventually led to harsh words and incriminations amongst the group (although that time it needed a push by Spike to get things started).

In much the same matter events unfold here with the Scooby Gang at each other's throats. And, I'd suspect, things will be solved in near identical fashion as the group will come together for a big group hug and final battle before the last minute.

We also get the reappearance of Lilah who lets us know Wolfram & Hart have a keen interest in Dawn and Xander's wacky adventure home (possibly setting a big return for the evil law firm in Season Eleven?). Worth a look.
