Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Eleven begins with Buffy and the Scoobies all in a good place and relatively happy. As fans of the television series know, that’s usually when things go south quickly. Buffy and Spike are working with the police as supernatural crime consultants, Xander and Dawn‘s relationship is stronger than ever, Willow has moved on to teaching and sharing her knowledge about magic, and even Giles seems more at peace with his teenage reality. And that’s when a dragon shows up.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten comes to a close by concluding the “Own It” story arc and having the Scoobies come together once more to stop a big bad. In the battle against D’Hoffryn our heroes find an unexpected ally as the vengeance demon discovers he may have made the new Anya a little too well. Granting her boss’ wish, Anya is able not only to satiate her own need for vengeance but also give Buffy and her pals a fighting chance.

Stymied by the limitations of his role as a Vengeance Demon and the rules still in place on the Vampyr tome (which seem to come out of nowhere by the way) by Willow not allowing him to expand his power any further, D’Hoffryn and his minions (who include the no longer ghost duplicate version of Anya) attack Buffy and her friends.

While the most interesting, and humorous, parts of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten #28 are the interludes of Dawn and Xander dimension-hopping to find their way home, the latest issue also focuses on Buffy and Spike working through their relationship issues while finding a way to prevent the threat of the super-powered D’Hoffryn.

While Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten #26 offers a major turning point in the season in revealing the identity of this season’s big bad, it’s not the most enjoyable aspect of the comic. Trapped in a hell dimension with no way home (without unleashing untold horrors on their loved ones), Xander and Dawn make the best of their surroundings. Befriending the local monsters, Xander puts his contractor experience to work winning over the populace in unexpected (and humorous) ways.

The endless grind of fighting back monsters from other dimensions begins to wear on everyone, especially now that Willow is working with the military (a situation Buffy continues to have problems with). Relying more and more on the Magic Council to fight these battles, Buffy is convinced to adding to their power using the Vampyr tome (likely foreshadowing all new kinds of trouble for the Slayer and her friends down the line).

“Old Demons” comes to a close as despite Archaeus‘ temporary hold over Angel pitting Buffy‘s ex against her current undead boyfriend, and having a host of lesser demons to fight off the rest of the Scoobies, the gang finds a way to come through in the end. Despite the fact that the arc comes to a close here with Archaeus’ defeat neither the demon nor the “Restless Door” artifact are taken out of play leaving the opportunity for one or both to make an appearance later in the season.
