Okay, first of all, THAT'S THE SCYTHE FROM FRAY.
Wheelchair fight, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
What the CRAP is up with the Dawn/Xander thing? Does it have something to do with the possible Joyce "Buffy won't choose you" warning?
Okay, now the stuff from Fray: In the third issue when Urkon is giving her a history lesson, we see some pictures of next week's battle. There's Buffy, holding the weapon as well a a stake, with a whole buttload of demons in front of her, some of the ubervamps and some other really big demons. Urkon says: "What we know is this -- there was a battle. A slayer, possibly with some mystical alles, faced an apocalyptic army of demons. And when it was done...they were gone. All demons, all magicks, banished from this earthly dimension." The picture on this line is of a portal closing with a hand sticking out, we are assuming Buffy's, but Urkon does not know if she lived. SO!!!! something REALLY BIG has to happen next week, wherein there is no need for the slayer line for the next few centuries.
