Justine tells the bartender she's done, but he disagrees, vamping out as he grabs her arm. The guy next to her also vamps out and says, "She thinks she's a slayer!" The bartender adds, "She's about to learn different [sic]," and yanks her up onto the bar. Justine kicks a third vamp away, and Angel hurries over and stakes him. Connor watches, and you just know that he's dying to say, "Cool!" Angel stakes another vamp while Justine fights off the bartender, and then we go into the general kicking and punching. Wesley and Lilah are still watching upstairs as the crowd moves away from the melee. Justine screams, and Connor makes a big leap that I think is supposed to be over the people in his way. Angel looks up and enthuses, "Nice!" Heh. I usually hate it when he says that, but this time it was funny. Connor hops over to the bar and starts to rescue Justine. Angel is so distracted by watching Connor that he gets clubbed by a vamp before returning to the matter at hand. As Connor stakes the bartender, Lilah wonders, "Who's the boy wonder? He moves just like --" "His father," Wesley finishes. I guess that isn't really too unreasonable an assumption, given all of the other bizarre things Wesley's seen happen. Connor stands facing Justine for a moment, and they stare at each other before Angel yanks him away and tells Justine to go. She runs away as another wave of vamps attacks Angel and Connor. Upstairs, Lilah turns to mock Wesley some more, but he's gone. Angel and Connor demonstrate some nice teamwork, and then Connor runs off after an escaping vampire.
Connor steps out of a back door into an alley, his stake at the ready. After a moment of suspense, he suddenly twists around to attack someone behind him. Who turns out to be Angel, and luckily he grabs Connor's hand before the stake reaches its target. Y'know, Angel, I don't think it's a good idea to sneak up behind Connor. Angel suddenly punches Connor's forearm, which spins Connor back so that he unintentionally stakes the vampire who was suddenly standing behind him. That was hard to describe, but I think you get the idea. It was neat. Angel explains, "They don't need to breathe or make any sound. You gotta be careful." Johanna wonders if he really means that vampires don't ever have to make noise. She asks, "Do they have to consciously intend every noise they make? Like, 'footstep, footstep, footstep'?" I think maybe Angel was just exaggerating to make a point, because otherwise my head will start to hurt. Angel compliments Connor's fighting skills, and notes, "Normally I'd take you to a baseball game or a museum or something...It's just good to know [that] you can handle yourself in a fight." Then Angel playfully punches at Connor, and Connor jumps back and then smiles. He smiled! I don't think we'll be seeing him do that again for a while, so enjoy it. Connor goes on grinning, and punches back at Angel, and then they start horsing around, feinting at each other and laughing. Aw. I'm not so big on kids, but I'm a total sucker for dads. While they go on playing, we see Holtz step out onto a fire escape and stare at them.
