The solution -- Spike checks himself in as a patient. But there's another, slightly bigger problem -- the hundreds of super-powered, supernatural patients at Mosaic know Spike, and want him dead.

"Spike." But the gypsy clan has a dark and powerful supporter -- Count Dracula. Outraged over the slaughter of the gypsies, Dracula seeks revenge upon the three vampires... and thus begins a rivalry between Spike and Dracula that will cover decades.
