Angelus strides along a chaotic street scene. Cars are on fire, corpses lay in the road, a vampire pulls a fireman out of a truck and kills him. Cool! I mean, in a nice, relatively inexpensive, apocalypse-establishing way. Angelus gripes, "Like shooting fish in a barrel. Where's the fun in that?" He spots a little girl running past and grabs her, then sees that she's already in vamp-face. Oooo. "What happened to pedestrians? Human pedestrians?" He drops the girl and asks, "Is there no fast food left in Los Angeles?" Even when there's nobody listening to him, he just can't shut up. I can see why they're worried about him: Angelus could talk the whole world to death.
At the Hyperion, Cordy is having a crisis of faith. "The Beast, and then Angelus, and now there's something worse." She adds, "It just makes me question --" "What's it all for, huh?" Angelus asks from the second-floor balcony. See, he just wants someone to talk to. I wonder if that's how he drove Drusilla insane. He makes a "Grr!" face that I find amusing, and then leaps down into the lobby. Lilah starts firing the gun at him, which causes slow-motion to kick in. She's also holding an axe, so she's not completely dumb. Angelus does a flat somersault on his way down, which seems inefficient. As he lands, Lilah gives her gun an exasperated look and throws it to the floor. Well, what did you expect, Lilah? Cordy fires a crossbow at Angelus, but he catches the bolt and throws it back at her. It lands in her belly, and Angelus repeats, "This time you stay down!" He turns to Lilah and offers her a ten-second head start, since she was going to set him free. Lilah races off as Angelus starts the countdown. Cordy loads another bolt into the crossbow, and fires. It lands in the wall near Angelus, who turns and says, "Don't be jealous, kitten. She's just the warm-up. I'll save the good stuff for you." He ducks around the corner and continues counting down. Hey, he's not really giving her a head start if he's already following her! My goodness, he truly is evil.
