(SPOILER) CBR Interview with Karl Moline about Buffy Season 9 #5. A little more info on the next issue and talk about the creation of Fray.

Long lost Slayer? Intriguing.
Nikki Mavis Wood
Mavis? I didn't know it - is it from that book you recced, "Blackout"?
I am not so sure. I am thinking First Slayer. Nikki is too obvious, given that we know Wood is going to be in the series. :-)
Yes, Nikki's middle name is mentioned in Blackout and technically it is not canon. I think Nikki's manifestation was promised by quite a few hints in a few different interviews, so it is likely her. Then again,. this is supposed to be a teaser, so I don't mind if it is somebody else.
The First Slayer is a good guess - especially given that she "comes back to say nothing at all". But I think that Nikki is the prime candidate.

@Dorotea - yes, I, too, think that Buffy will see Nikki in a slayer dream in #5 and then will go visit Wood to find out more about Nikki in the next issue.

But this issue has the fairy on the cover, so the Buffy decoy from the Chain?
@Anca - and the fairy is flying next to Buffy's ear! An ear-canal pregnancy? Could it cause Buffy's nightmares?
think of an ectopic pregnancy being a serious health problem... and compare that triviality to having one in the ear canal... I would pick being turned into a zompire instead...
Well, Joss is quite a specialist in ectopic pregnancies - it's the guy who wrote Alien Resurrection, after all :) And, according to the fairy in Chain "it's not fatal" - so I'd prefer this instead of zompire option.
Screaming, pooping life.
Long lost slayer eh? Are they going to retcon a new Slayer in from Buffy's second death?!
