Doyle finishes taping up Angel's place as Cordy tells him that Melissa has fallen asleep with the aid of the whiskey he added to her tea. Cordy notes that dating is difficult. Doyle offers, "Not every relationship leads to disaster." This discussion continues off-screen while the camera reveals little fingers poking through the duct tape. A slightly amusing bit of dialogue was apparently snipped, but is still in the captioning, as Cordy asks Doyle, "You ever had one that didn't?" He answers, "Not me, personally, but I read...." We resume their chit-chat with Cordy worrying about Angel, while Doyle continues to go wild with the duct tape. They hear a mysterious scraping and move to investigate. Doyle grabs some weapons from the walls and doesn't see the eyeball floating above them. They track the noise down to Angel's handy trapdoor to the sewers, which is rattling as a hand tries to push it open. The other hand, meanwhile, opens the front door for Ronald who enters and pops his eye back in. Ronald knows where Angel lives how, exactly? As the hand in the sewer opens the latch, Doyle demonstrates exactly how dumb he is by opening the trapdoor and peering down inside. Ronald grabs Cordy and knocks her unconscious while his free hand (heh) pulls Doyle down into the sewers.
Ronald turns to Melissa, who has been awakened by all the turmoil, and reattaches his hand. Ronald accuses Melissa of leading him on, "until you could find yourself a vacuous L.A. pretty-boy." At the mere idea of dating Angel, Melissa panics and tries to run away, but Ronald grabs her and pulls out a scalpel. Melissa changes tacks, and tells Ronald that he knows she'd have to be crazy to get involved with him, and that he's a "vile, repulsive freak, and I am done being afraid of you." Ronald's throat morphs a little here, for some unknown reason. Melissa concludes by telling Ronald, "Angel was right, you're weak." Ronald's snappy retort is "I'm weak? Then how is it I killed him?" Which is of course when Angel enters with the answer, "Inefficiently." For all the work that went into that setup, I kind of expected a better payoff. Well, at least we're heading for the big showdown.
I don't know the words to describe this next bit adequately. Okay, deep breaths. I can do this. Ronald starts to run away, with Angel right behind him. Then Ronald turns and...all right, here goes: Ronald's jaw jumps out of his mouth and bites Angel's arm. It's not even really his jaw, it's like one of those little chattering teeth sets, only a little bloodier. And it's not his whole lower jaw, but it's more than just his teeth. All I can say is, it is darn amusing to watch when it hurtles through the air and bites Angel. So, Angel smashes his arm against a wall, shattering Ronald's jaw-or-whatever-the-hell-it-is. Next Ronald tries stabbing Angel with the scalpel, and tosses one of his hands around Angel's throat for good measure. Angel ends up stabbing the hand to the floor with the scalpel. While Ronald tells Melissa how happy they could have been together, one of his ears sorta falls off, which has got to be embarrassing for him. Angel calls Ronald's name, and when Ronald turns Angel throws a mighty punch which causes a styrofoam head to fall to the floor nearby. I'm not sure what happened to Ronald's own head, maybe it got knocked off as well. Angel gives Melissa a nice hug to pay her back for enduring the kind of climactic fight scene you don't normally find outside of anime.
