Slayer, Interrupted, Part Three is the fifty-eighth issue of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Classic comic book series.

She assumed the girls who said they were brides to the demon Rakagore were just crazy – but when Rakagore actually shows up, the only thing more bizarre than his appearance is who he was hiding behind.
