Blipvert. Cordy and Connor enter yet another hideout. Or a different part of the old one. It's not important. Cordy reassures Connor that it'll all work out, but he's still shocked that Angel wanted to kill her. He gets an idea: "Maybe it wasn't really Angel! Angelus could have tricked us again, and --" Wow, everybody's practically thinking in this episode. It's freaky. Cordy tells Connor to let go of the straws, and Connor goes back to brooding over what a jerk his dad is. Cordy sadly explains, "Lies. Meant to keep you in your place, where he can watch you, control you." Connor can't believe that the rest of the MoG were in on it: "I thought they were..." Gardeners? "Good." Oh. Cordy goes all deconstructionist as she tells Connor that good and evil are just words the MoG used to order him around. Cordy reminds him, "You're with me now; you don't have to live by their rules. You remember why?" Connor rather bitterly says, "Because we're special." Cordy ignores his tone and simply adds that their baby will be the mostest specialest baby ever. I'm starting to wonder if they're satirizing Baby Boomers with these two.
