In the basement, Angelus continues singing Wesley's praises: "And that accent -- ooh, chicks just love a good accent. Makes them all buttery in their nether regions. Isn't that right, Fred?" "Nether regions"? I know they pushed things way past the limit last week, but once you've established that he's crude, you can't go back.
Upstairs, Gunn looks at Fred. Angelus threatens to use his Irish brogue on Fred while he "rape[s] [her] to death." He's gotten a lot more sadistic over the years. He never threatened Buffy with his deadly accent. Gunn finally switches off the sound on the monitor. Fred nervously repeats that Angelus is just trying to scare them because "he knows he's never getting out." Fred hasn't gotten the memo about tempting fate, I see.
Downstairs, Lilah steps out of the shadows. So Angelus was trying to get them to turn the sound off so he could talk to Lilah? I'll just assume so, because otherwise it makes Lilah way too lucky. And it fits in with all the other hidden motives in this episode. Anyway, Angelus grins at Lilah. She looks into the cage and holds up a crowbar.
Credits. This week's Boreanaz quote comes courtesy of elishavah: "Rabbit? Whoa, a rabbit! Jumping in the grass. Woohoo. All right! Okay!" Please, nobody tell me what the context was, because I like making up my own explanation.
Angelus and Lilah get straight to the snarking. Angelus points out that, even though he's in a cage, she's the one looking unkempt. People are never just plain "kempt," have you noticed? Or "heveled," for that matter. He chides her, "All these years, wanting to meet me. You couldn't run a comb through your hair, maybe slap on a little lipstick? Evil doesn't have to mean sloppy." Lilah asks Angelus to stop Satan, but he's still not into the idea. He asks why she's so upset. Lilah madly cackles, "The Beast took everything! Killed them all" Whoa. I was just kidding about turning her into Gollum, I swear, but I like seeing her get unhinged. She explains that, in addition to his rampage through the office building, Satan has been wiping out all of Wolfram & Hart's employees. Oh. Poor Wolfram & Hart. I'm kind of sad for Greenwalt. Angelus watches Lilah comes a little closer to the red line marking his reach, while she rants, "Why is he picking on us? We're the bad guys!" Angelus comforts her, "You've got a devoted boyfriend who loves and cares for -- oh, wait. You don't." He giggles. Lilah repeats that she wants Angelus to kill Satan, and holds up the crowbar. While she doesn't have any particular reason to think Angelus will keep his part of the bargain, I assume her plan is to hand him the crowbar and skedaddle, so that she's gone by the time he gets out. So she's not totally dumb, at least. And still very pretty. The more they mess her up, the prettier she gets. It's like a superpower.
