Angel's playing with a globe up in his room while he chats with Cordelia. His room, by the way, is mostly cleaned up now, but one wall still needs to be repainted. I appreciate that. Anyhow, Angel's chattering that Connor feels further away than ever, even though he's back now. He says, "There was just so much I thought we'd be able to do together before he, y'know...." "Grew up?" Cordy asks. "Hated me," Angel finishes. Aw. No, that's a sincere "aw." And the beauty of it is, it's not clear whether he means that all teenagers hate their parents, or if he just expected that Connor would eventually hate him. Nice line. Cordy tries to comfort Angel by pointing out that Connor doesn't know Angel well enough to hate him, and upon realizing that's not the most inspiring thought, she backpedals, "But he will." Know Angel, not hate him. I assume. She adds that Connor will come back, "because he has to. Because he's family." Considering how close Cordy is to her family, that's not very convincing.
With that, we cut to Wesley's apartment, where Wesley is burning his fingers on his TV dinner. Bwa ha ha! He pours himself some wine to go with his entree, and I almost wish this scene went on longer, because I'm enjoying Wesley's ongoing humiliation so much. He hears his laptop beep, and goes over to discover that he's got mail. Actually, it looks like someone hacked into his computer and left a message on his notepad, but play along. The message reads, "782 W. Palm Terrace 8:30 PM. Come alone." Wesley stares at the computer, wondering if he should bother setting the VCR to tape Buffy. Because this episode takes place on a Tuesday. Look, I spent a few minutes working that out, so pretend you care.
Oh, damn, we're back to the Geiger counter nonsense. Fred wanders around going clackety clackety while everyone follows after her because they are starved for entertainment. The same could be said for us right now, I admit. Cary wonders, "Should we be wearing lead? 'Cause I actually have something." Fred follows the readings around the room, toward the door, where she gets stronger readings as she finally notices that Connor is standing in front of her. Fred babbles a little and finally shuts up before she scares Connor away. Everyone stares for a minute, and Angel tries for a casual "hey." Connor explains he just dropped by, and Angel turns and introduces everyone, then hints for them to clear out, which they do. Cute two-shot of Connor and Angel folding their arms uncomfortably while they try to think of something to say. Eventually Angel asks, "You hungry?" Connor very quietly asks what there is to eat, and Angel ponders that for a second before suggesting they go out to eat.
