"Freaky Giles Day" is the nineteenth issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season Ten comic book series. Joss Whedon was the Executive Producer.


With a little help from Willow, Giles is given a second chance at adulthood, and the demon scourge smells weakness. Meanwhile, Buffy and Dawn are reunited with their neglectful father, Hank Summers.


  • Hank Summers appears himself for the first time since "When She Was Bad". He was last seen in "Normal Again" as part of Buffy's hallucinations.
  • When informed of her father's wedding, Buffy asks how ugly will the bridesmaids dresses be, referencing the events of "Hell's Bells".
  • Hank states he does not want Buffy in his wedding for "safety reasons" and she agrees by recollecting the deaths of Tara, Anya, Jenny and Giles.
  • Dawn recollects Hank's absence after Joyce's death ("The Body") and when she was turned into a giant (sometime before 'The Long Way Home').
  • Giles attacks a demon with a guitar saying "some skills you never lose:" he's had slayed vampires with a guitar in his youth, as seem in Death and Consequences, Part Four.
