Oi, s' Spike. I don't mean to make a fuss, know the Callahans been giving you the wrong end of hell lately...but did the niblet spend the night with you?

No, and she hasn't been answering her phone.

You too? Bugger. This is extremely not good.

And since you're not threatening to fucking shoot, stab, or otherwise kill me--help me look for her.

Do yourself a favor, mate: ignore the Callahans. Odds are, you fought with Cain and he went hurt or missing, Little Red would be just as ready to tear your bloody face off.

Done some pokin' 'round already. There's every chance Nahuel's got Hank, either in his thrall or dead. He also, however, has a sister been in this town for quite some time. If we're goin' to find your girl, she'd be our best place to start.

Just--just point the way, tell me where to go, what to do. I'll do anything.

Well you can start by keepin' thoughts like that in your head. Long as you're willing to do anything, she's got a chance.

Bugger, this isn't what I do...heard a rumor that the big man's in town. Rupert Giles, the Watcher of Watchers. Fey magick may also be helpful...think she's friendly with a couple in town, yeah? Hit up her mates, see what they say.

You'll also want to talk to Harper and her Watcher, dunno if she's ready for a fight yet, but now's the time to test her, I say.

Cheers. Poke 'round, get back to me.

And if you've any undue urges to shag anyone? Run the other way screaming. Not joking, this is bloody serious business.

This may be hard to believe but sex has been the last thing on my mind.

...bloody impossible to believe. You realize you're the only bloke in the city, then?

That's noteworthy, I'd say. I'll mention that to Merle and his boy.

You feelin' any different at all? More violent, more angry...anything?

...Not anymore than normal, considering the circumstances of my girlfriend cheating on me with someone I considered a friend.

Boy, you just might be proof that there's a way to beat this thing.

Joseph, nobody's right in the head in this city. Not even Merle, not even me. You just might be the only one in the entire Detroit area not bein' influenced by the incubus.

...Why? Why would I be exempt?

Old man's been speculating that love can guard against the effects this thing has on people. Those of us in relationships, we're not quite so bad off, apparently, as the rest of the world.

Only thing I can think of is that you 'n Hank...you've not had much else but each other. Unlike you, however, the niblet had this monkey on her back she wasn't even aware of, peekin' at girls and in total denial all the while. Workin' off Merle's theory, had she addressed this sooner, or been straight as an arrow, I doubt she'd have been touched by the thing.

After all, I hear she didn't go off the rails 'till you two stopped shagging.

So in other words you think it's all my fault, too.

I think a demon wormed its way into your girl's skull, compelled her to do some bad things, and alienated the only person that could have saved her because of it...all according to said demon's evil plans.

Oh, absolutely, all your fault, that.

Don't be a stupid git, of course not. You did precisely what Nahuel wanted you to do: you got hurt. You may not be in his power, but you're still as big a pawn as the rest of us.

Excuse me for being a little testy when I'm getting blamed for everything left and right.

Everyone is a bit testy. And a bit terrified. And a bit metaphysically insane.

Joe, none of this is bloody normal. They're all lashing out because they're scared. Violence, rage, those are byproducts of the incubus as well. Bein' a demon myself, I think I stand slightly more immune, but even me, lad. Take nothing to heart, not even from me, not until we've got this under control.

And watch that bloody roommate of yours. Hank says he's a bit of a heartbreaker, yeah? If you can stop him from shagging anyone, do it. Unless he's got a sweetie you don't know about.
