Cover By: Jo Chen

Where We Are: Giles had dropped in on Faith to offer her what she wants - an anonymous escape from the rigors of Slayerhood. She will get a passport and stipend if she'll just carry out one last mission on his behalf. Locate a 'rogue Slayer' who may cause the end of the world and eliminate her.

What Giles didn't plan on is that the Lady Genevieve, despite being of a completely different social class, has a lot in common emotionally with his Slayer agent. Faith isn't keen on killing Lady Gigi and when she finds out that the rogue is targeting Buffy she believes Giles sent her in just to protect his 'golden girl'. When push came to shove however, she sided with the Slayer she's never had an easy relationship with. Now Gigi is standing over her with an axe, Roden the powerful wizard-manipulator is nearby and there isn't any Buffy or Giles to help keep Faith alive.
