When we return, Angel grabs Lilah's neck, and shoves her against a wall. Lilah gasps, "Watch the head. It comes off kinda easy [sic]." Angel figures Wolfram & Hart set this up, and orders Lilah to stop it. Boreanaz does a very good job through this episode, too. He looks scared even as he's threatening Lilah, which is nice. Lilah insists that they had nothing to do with it. "But you know who did!" Angel growls. Lilah admits that she does: "I'm looking at him. You're the one who raised him. Or didn't." Ouch. Angel lets go of Lilah and backs away, stunned. Lilah adds, "I can't imagine how the kid turned out postal." Hee. Angel, infuriated, jumps back into Lilah's face and says she doesn't know Connor at all. Lilah is staring tensely into space, not looking at Angel even though he's inches from her, and it looks odd but I really like it. Lilah's not usually terrified by anything, and she's already dead, so what he can he do? But I think her inability to meet his eyes says a lot. Angel heads for the door again, and Lilah tells him that if he walks out, the deal is off. Angel turns back to her and snaps, "People like you, this place -- that's what's wrong with the world, Lilah! I will never be a part of this!" Then he looks at Connor on the screen and adds, "Not the way you're hoping." He advances toward her again, and says he's going to tell her what their deal is. Lilah swallows nervously. Angel looks a little stubbly -- I wonder if this was shot at the last minute, because there's just a hint of facial hair there. Anyway, good scene, and good job by Romanov and Boreanaz.
