The next morning, Sharon finishes dressing as she sits on the bloodstained bed. Kevin looks a little bit, well, dead.
That night, the gang searches through newspapers for "any mention of events in and around that bar." We learn that the name of the bar is D'Oblique (no comment), as Cordy tries to do a search of newsgroups. We also learn that Cordy can't type. The search turns up two articles. One describes a missing girl. The other is about the discovery of the "eviscerated" body of a young man. In both cases, they were last seen at D'Oblique. Angel asks Doyle and Cordy to go downstairs and use "the library." Where'd he get a library? Did he take some of Giles's books? Anyway, he says they should make a list of any eviscerating demons that prey on young singles. How many of those can there be? Meanwhile, Angel heads back to the blipvert -- I mean, bar.
Outside of D'Oblique, Angel literally runs into Kate. He apologizes for being rude the previous night. Then he says that she shouldn't go into the bar, because it isn't safe, but he can't explain why. Kate says, "I can go wherever I want, and you can go to hell." After she walks inside, Angel says, "Been there...done that." You'd think he'd be more bitter about spending untold ages in hell, but apparently he can make jokes about it. I think that's nice.
Kate sits at the bar. Angel sits a couple of stools away. They look at each other. Kate is sitting next to Sharon, who is putting the moves on another guy. He is whining about how it's hard to meet people at work, he doesn't know who to trust, he was a geek in high school and never got a date, etc. Has anyone not picked up on the theme yet? A guy who looks like a younger version of Mitch Leery comes up and asks the bartender where Kevin is, because Kevin missed work and isn't answering his phone. The bartender says Kevin left with some girl last night and he's probably "sleeping it off." Angel intuits that this is a clue and asks what girl Kevin left with.
Cordy and Doyle do research. Cordy talks about how gross demons are. Doyle tries to suggest that not all demons are so bad. Cordy says "I've known a lot of demons, and slime aside, not a lot going on there." The closed-captioning has her saying "I've known a lot of demons in slimicide," which is another example of the conspiracy to confuse deaf people in this world.
The bartender remembers Sharon's name. Mitch, Jr. describes Sharon as "dowdy" and says Kevin must be scraping the bottom of the barrel. Angel asks where Sharon is, and the bartender says he saw her before, she must have just left. Mitch, Jr. makes more unpleasant comments about Sharon. Angel tries to find out Sharon's last name, and Mitch, Jr. says it's Richler. Angel leaves, and Mitch, Jr. explains to the bartender that he knows Sharon's last name because he asked her out.
