Summary: The end of 2002 wasn’t the best time for Spike. He was crazy in the basement, Dawn threatened to burn him in his sleep, he killed a bunch of people, and then he was kidnapped by the First and tortured by the Turok-Han in an underground cave over Christmas. When Buffy finally rescues him and brings him home to a house full of Scoobies and Potentials, people have some things to say to him.
