I keep trying to decide what's more horrifying: Robin Williams trying to be menacing, or those new Oreos that are half-filled with peanut butter. Blech to both.
When we return, Tyke -- with a newly bandaged ear -- asks where Sunny is. Angel wonders, "Would that be the dead girl in the bathroom?" which is such a matter-of-fact response that it amuses me. A flunky goes to check the bathroom while Angel explains that he's Connor's father. Connor doesn't cotton to that, but Angel shushes him and asks Tyke if they can "work this out" peacefully. He insists, "There's no need for violence." He's lost his mind, you know. Tyke punches Angel and explains, "Did you say no need for violence? You may want to speak up, you see: I don't hear so good any more!" Hee hee! The flunky returns and confirms that Sunny is dead, and Angel goes on trying to find a peaceful solution, because he's crazy. Completely crazy. Tyke asks, "You can give me a new ear?" Angel basically gives up and says, "Maybe you can wear a hat." Tyke demands his jacket back, and Angel tells Connor to give it up, but Connor's not going along with that. Another flunky enters and announces that the cops are outside.
Mistress Meerna asks whether the pentagram was part of a dark attempt to close the portal. Gunn says, "No, that was a dark attempt to open one." No, it wasn't. It was an attempt to solidify Sahjhan! And it worked! Mistress Meerna tells Fred that she wants to know how the portal opened, and adds some menacing words about Quor-toth. She says that it's not really a portal, but "a tear in reality -- big cosmic no-no." Mistress Meerna says that "something punched its way through," and then scares everyone by vanishing again and abruptly appearing behind them. Cary brings her a bowl of stuff as she puts on safety goggles. Cary asks if everyone should take cover, but Mistress Meerna assures them, "It's pretty routine. Just sometimes I get a little schmutz in my eye." I like her, but I don't ever want to see her again. Remember Skip, people. And learn that it's better to miss someone than to have her overstay her welcome. A lesson that also applies to babies. I wish they'd traded baby Connor in for the teenage version a lot sooner. Mistress Meerna waves her hand over the bowl, says some Latin, and the air sizzles with purpleness. After a moment, she turns, takes off her goggles, and says, "It's closed." Cordy asks if anything else came through the rift before it was closed, and Mistress Meerna chirps, "Not sure. And not sticking around to find out. Bye." Exit, stage blipvert.
