Fred is in the office, bent over a desk in the hopes that Wesley will notice her low-rise pants. She turns suddenly to see Angelus at the door. Only he's pretending to be Angel. Like this wasn't confusing enough to recap. He awkwardly explains that he asked Cordy to let him out, and then says, "You know what, never mind," and turns to leave. Which is just a bit of business so that he can give the camera some Evil Looks without Fred's seeing, but it's entertaining. Fred insists that she's sorry for what he's gone through. Angelus smirks, and then spins back to Fred with a guilt-ridden expression. Fred says that they're all stressed, and Angelus chirps, "I could use a drink." Fred starts, and Angelus whines, "Now see, that's what I was afraid of. For the rest of your life, you'll only see this evil thing." He moves closer to Fred, and she insists that it's all in the past. Angelus smiles and thanks her, and then asks, "Could I get a hug?" Fred looks more confused, and then there's a crash out in the lobby. Fred turns her head toward the sound, and when she turns back, Angelus is gone.
Lilah and Wesley look down at the tray of coffee which she apparently dropped. Lilah explains that her "inner megalomaniac" rebels at serving coffee. Which doesn't make sense. Until they look up to see Angelus, who is standing next to the monitor. I think Lilah saw Cordy on the monitor and dropped the tray, then lied because, after all, she wanted Angelus set loose. Excellent. As Connor and Gunn enter, Angelus explains that Cordy talked him out of staying in the cage, adding, "Now I've got my own mission." He spots a leather jacket and grabs it, perhaps hoping he can find pants to match later. Connor asks what the mission is, but Angelus says it's too dangerous for anyone to join him. He hurries to the door, looks around shiftily, and deadpans, "I have to go save the world." Snerk. He exits quickly, and the rest of the MoG, and Lilah, look bemused. Fred enters and stands next to the monitor as she asks if anyone's seen Cordelia.
Cut to the boys gathering weapons. Gunn says that Connor will track Angelus while he, Fred, and Wesley follow in the truck. And Lilah and Cordy can cook dinner, or something. For the most part, the characters have been pretty intelligent in this episode, so it's hard to understand why they'd be silly enough to split up. The fact that they're taking the truck helps, since they wouldn't all fit inside it. Wesley's SUV, on the other hand, should hold them all. Oh well. Cordy holds an ice pack on her head and wonders why the spell didn't work. Lilah describes it as "dud ex machina." Wesley says, "Our only advantage is [that] Angelus may think we'll want to capture him. I think we're all agreed, that isn't an option anymore." By way of agreement, Lilah loads her pistol, and while I get the bullets-still-hurt thing, it's not her smartest moment. Fred isn't sure that she can kill Angelus, which is funny, because I'm completely sure she can't. Connor leads the others out in hot pursuit.
