Once Lilah's gone, Wesley gets up and mercifully puts some jeans on before he walks across the room to unlock a closet door. Wesley's made some home improvements by installing iron bars in the closet. And behind them, he's installed a gagged and bound Justine. Holy crap. "It's time," Wesley says. "Let's go for a boat ride." Poor Lilah. You just know she'd be into this. And I'm not talking about the prospect of doing some sailing.
After spending the commercial break wondering what kind of crazy Gorean pirate games Wesley is into, we discover that, actually, he was being literal about the boat ride. Which is a shame, since I'd already thought up some jokes about "keelhauling" and "walking the plank." Arrrr. Justine and Wesley are in the tugboat that Justine picked up when she was collecting odd vehicles. Justine snarks that maybe they'll find an old tire or a shopping cart. I'm distracted because I'm trying to figure out why Wesley keeps Justine chained up in his apartment, but out on the sea she's not even handcuffed. Or at least there aren't any visible restraints on her. Hm. I could make some guesses, but let's not go there. Really, I just want a line or two somewhere that establishes that Justine escaped from Wesley before, and he just caught her again, so she knows there's no point in trying. Wesley ignores her and marks up some charts. She asks why he's bothering to look for Angel, but admits, "Anything's better than sitting around in my cage all day with nothing to do but to fill [sic] my bucket." When that fails to get a rise (oh dear) out of Wesley, she mocks him for "banging the enemy and keeping a slave-girl in his closet." Wesley mutters, "You were always a slave, Justine. You just couldn't see the chains." He expositions a bit about Justine's sister and Holtz and all that. Most of the exposition in this episode is reasonably smooth, considering how much there is to explain. But I'm not going to repeat it, because...well, I'm pretty sure you know what happened. Wesley does explain that it was "easy to figure out which door to kick in when Angel went missing." Not easy enough for Gunn and Fred, of course. Though, actually, I suppose Connor would have warned Justine if they were looking for her. Plus, unless they were really quick, they'd have to know to kick in Wesley's closet door. So, okay. While Wesley blathers on, Justine begins stealthily picking up a wrench that's been prominently placed on a table. She's not quite stealthy enough, though; there's a slight noise, and as she moves to swing at Wesley, he calmly says "I'll take away your bucket" without turning around. Justine ponders that for a second, then throws the wrench down onto the table and sulks.
