Asylum, Part Two
"Asylum, Part One" was the first issue of the Spike: Asylum comic book mini-series.
Ruby Monahan went missing and her family recruited Spike to track her down. Ruby, a half-demon, checked into the Mosaic Wellness Center, a rehab facility designed to cure the demonic. In an unfortunate turn of events, Spike faced both the Mosaic center, which hoped to cure his vampiric nature, and its clientele, who wanted him dead.
- Spike's hallucinations including "Smile Time" demon puppets Polo and Ratio Hornblower and his mention of Vahla ha'nesh indicate that it is set after "Shells" but before Angel: After the Fall and Angel: After the Fall: First Night since Asylum features the meeting between Betta George and Spike. Since the events of After the Fall and First Night take place right after "Not Fade Away," Asylum should also take place at least before "Power Play."
