"Wilderness, Part Two" was the second issue of the Willow & Tara: Wilderness comic book mini-series. It was part of the Willow meta-series, published under the title Willow & Tara.

Synopsis

Willow, Tara, and Dawn were attackeed in the forest by Jack the Greenjack who believed them to be intruding on his forest. Through his magic he was able to use nature against the two witches. Willow and Tara fled onto the Altar of the Green, because Jack could not use the wood of the tree there against them.

Meanwhile Dawn urged the wood sprites not to fall for Jack's tricks. Dawn interrupted the fight and the wood sprites came to her aid, but Jack was stronger than then and he used magic to enlarge himself to the size of a pine tree. He then disappeared, but Willow and Tara figured he had gone to attack others. So after congratulating Dawn for her bravery they started running.

A little later at the logging company, three loggers were talking about the situation and the death of the forest ranger, when suddenly Greenjack and his army of boggarts attacked the site. Willow and Tara arrived and tried to reason with him, but he would not listen and attacked them. At that moment Dawn and the wood sprites arrived and the wood sprites and boggarts began fighting each other, while Dawn helped the loggers to safety.

Meanwhile Willow and Tara used magic to fight of boggarts and to capture Greenjack in a block of ice. It escaped and attacked and injured Tara, which prompted Willow to attack full force and she seemingly killed it much to Tara's dismay. But it had survived and lashed out once again. This time both Willow and Tara attacked it with the Silva Victus Perustum spell which destroyed it completely. Willow used another spell to make the loggers forget what they had seen.

Although Willow and Tara could not stop the logging, they put a spell on the heart of the forest that would bar humans from entering it and from seeing the creatures that lived there. Only the king of the forest, Greenjack, could invite humans back in, but it would be a long while before he could re-manifest himself.

Continuity

The events took place after "Life Serial", but before "All the Way".
