(SPOILER) Preview pages for Buffy #24. CBR has the preview up.

Hmmm, what's up with Illyria? Wonder how she will end up after all of this.
I think Fred may keeping her alive. Although at this point i think it would be pointless to bring her back.
I think it would be fascinating to have both Illyria and Fred sentient and "awake" and forced to share the same body. Though I hope Illyria gets at least some of her powers back.

There have been hints of Fred's presence ever since Illyria got de-powered. I think we may get a Big Reveal at the end of the season.
I would find it very interesting if they were to do some sort of big reveal regarding Illyria in the Buffy book. I would think something like that would resonate more over at "Angel" but I guess they are assuming that most readers are hardcore fans who are familiar with both casts.
Question, I've kinda stopped reading the past few issues but I'm curious, has Illyria and Willow had any dialogue together at all? Since she and Fred had a friendship, and Angel tried to contact her when she was dying, I always felt a Fred Illyria interaction would be interesting. If they haven't spoken has willow made any mention of her at all?
I want to know why Simone has a second body, and if that body is possessed by Maloker, how can Maloker be up and terrorizing Illyria and co.?
watcherinthewoods, Maloker wasn't resurrected in the same manner as Illyria. He was physically entombed in the Well and released without need of a host. Simone was sired in the conventional way, only by an Old One and not a vampire.

I still don't understand, though, why there are two Simones. Her original body should simply have been vamped by Maloker.
There is only one Simone.
There are two Simones. Buffy and Xander discovered her corpse, only to be attacked by VampSimone. Both "Simones" are shown in the same panel.
I just re-read the final page, and there is only one Simone. The very first panel shows nothing but her corpse. The second panel is a wider shot that shows Xander, Buffy, and Simone's body all at once. The third panel show Buffy bringing up the Scythe to either stake or decapitate the body. The fourth panel is a zoomed in view of Simone's hand coming up from the bottom of the panel and latching on to Buffy's wrist, stopping the Scythe's downward motion. The fifth and final panel shows a wide shot of Xander in the background while Vamp Simone lunges at Buffy. At no point does it ever show Simone's corpse and Vamp Simone at the same time.

They are one and the same.

As much as I'd like to see Fred alive I don't think this will be the case. But without powers it will be interesting to see Illyria with more human traits
You're right. There is only one Simone. I don't know why I thought there was two!
