Angel is sketching a picture of the demon Cordy saw in her vision. Well, actually, he's just erasing little bits of the drawing that someone else made, but we're supposed to think he drew it. Angel says, "Wes, I'm thinking Northern Pakistan, Hindu Kush." The Hindu Kush is a region, and also a plant, and it'd be interesting to know to which of these they were referring. That's all I have to say about that. Oh, and I'm not calling him "Wes." You can't make me. But I will call him "Wuss." Happily. Wuss starts toward a stack of books, saying "I need Soleman's Compendium." A volume in the middle of the stack suddenly shoots out at him and whacks him in the shoulder. Yay, Phantom Dennis! Cordy tells Wuss not to shout, and that "Dennis is very sensitive. He's just trying to help!" Wuss tells Angel that they need an office. Cordy squeals as she recognizes one of the pictures in the book, and the latest orc variant is identified as a Prio Notu demon.
Angel reads the entry: "Ancient Ofga-beast, bred to maim and massacre." Angel updates the whiteboard and wonders how they can track down the baddie. Wuss has an idea: "I've been broadening our contact base, reaching out to the underlife. I may have someone who can help. A parasite demon named Merl." Cordy suggests that they visit Merl and "make with the chin music until he canaries." Off their puzzled looks, she explains, "I've been watching a little noir festival on Bravo." (Bravo, of course, carries Twin Peaks, recapped by the fabulous Djb. Shout out?) Wuss goes on to say that Merl hangs out in a "safe house" for demons, and that he's been meaning to take Angel and Cordy there. "But..." he hesitates, "it's a little outside the box."
