Meanwhile, Angel is doing Tai Chi when the phone rings. It's Rachel, still wearing her strange blue choker. Apparently Lenny (the abusive ex-boyfriend) got out on a technicality. Perhaps it was because he was assaulted by a vigilante, instead of actually being arrested; that's often a pesky loophole. Angel enters his garage to take his big black convertible to the rescue -- is that how he's meant to be getting around? In a car with tinted windows? But then how does he get from the car to inside all the buildings? Joss, please explain! Well, we won't find out this time, because that's when Spike knocks Angel upside the head with a two-by-four. After explaining that he'd like his ring back, Spike says, "You're Angel, vamp detective now? Ooo, I'm so scared. What's next? Vampire cowboy? Vampire fireman? Oh, vampire ballerina." Hee hee hee! Angel says, "I do like to work with my legs," and does his little Buck-Rogers-esque kicking thing. I'm sorry, but that was a lame (so to speak) comeback. More punching and kicking and stuff. As Spike recovers from being thrown into a wall, Cordy and Doyle run in. Because their Spidey-sense was tingling, I guess. Spike looks up and says, "Cordelia? You look smashing! You lose weight?" Cordy is flattered, of course, but then remembers he's a bad guy. Spike leaves with a parting threat. Angel suggests that Cordy and Doyle hide out at Doyle's, since Spike will try to track Cordy down. Their plan is to track Spike down before he finds them.
Doyle is making calls, trying to learn where Spike might be hiding out. Cordy makes fun of Doyle's messy apartment, which "smells like bongwater." One of Doyle's contacts apparently thinks Doyle owes him $100. Because, y'know, Doyle's Irish, and so he probably gambles as well as drinking and all the rest of it. Where's Sinn Fein when you need it? Doyle asks if Spike is "as bad as all that." Cordy confirms that he is.
We blipvert over to the ever-chokered Rachel, as Angel tries to convince her to go to a shelter. Rachel is concerned that she will weaken and try to get back together with Lenny, because that's what she always does. Angel says, "You're at a crossroads, I know. It's either, go for the easy fix and wait for the consequences, or take the hard road, and go with faith." Rachel thinks he's working for a church, and the audience wonders if he's thinking about a certain naughty slayer. "In yourself, that kind of faith," he clarifies. Oh.
