Yay! I've been waiting two years for Sahjhan to reappear! Well, I haven't been, because I didn't think he ever would, so it's more like I've been whining about that occasionally for two years. But the point is: yay! Just had to get that out.
Vail decides against asking for help again, and climbs out of his chair by himself. He notes that Angel's tangled with Sahjhan before. Angel says, "I trapped him in a bottle." Way to steal the credit from Justine, dude. Granted, it's not important enough to exposition about. Vail opens a cabinet and reveals a completely different jar from the original one, but again, not really that important. Angel says that Sahjhan is trapped, so why not leave him in there? Vail says, "Urns tend to break. Long-lost enemies tend to return. I need finality to my affairs." Then Vail gestures, and a little glowy box materializes in his hand. Vail explains that the box is an Orlon Window: "It allows warlocks such as myself to see the past as it once was. You have to be careful with it, though. If it were to break around someone whose mind had been altered, then all his old memories would come rushing back." Angel starts to move toward Vail, but Vail warns him off. "I gave Connor his happy life. Are you certain you can kill me before I can take it away from him?" As he says this, the box vanishes, and Vail moves back toward his chair. Angel finally agrees to kill Sahjhan. Vail brushes that aside and says that, according to prophecy, the only person who can kill Sahjhan is Connor. Vail sums it up: "I turned your son into a healthy boy. And now I need you to turn him back into a killer." Dun dun dunnn!
Commercials. Must be all that stuff about syrup, but suddenly I have a terrible craving for waffles.
Angel's office. Connor asks why he has to be the one to kill Sahjhan. Angel says, "Because you're special," which is his default response when he doesn't know what the real answer is. It's probably just as well Angel didn't raise Connor; the kid would have been woefully ignorant. "Why is the sky blue?" "Uh...because you're special!" Wesley huffily asks why they're doing what Vail wants, and Angel vaguely says, "Vail's made some convincing threats." Wesley isn't satisfied by that, but Connor assumes that Vail is threatening his family. Wesley says that they can't trust Vail, adding, "Angel, he did a massive spell the day we took over Wolfram & Hart!" Angel looks uncomfortable and doesn't respond. Maybe Angel should have gotten Connor to teach him how to be a better liar. I mean, if he'd jumped up all surprised here and said, "Really? Wow, we should investigate that!," it might have thrown Wesley off completely. Of course, then Connor would have gotten killed later. So I guess it's all for the best that Angel's pretty dumb. Connor interrupts to ask if Sahjhan is strong, and Wesley says that Sahjhan nearly killed Angel the last time they met. Angel concedes the point, but reassures Connor: "This is different! Like I said, you're special." Then he makes a note to himself that maybe he shouldn't have asked Wesley to sit in on this chat. Connor looks startled at Angel's insistence, and says, "We don't have a choice, do we?" Wesley says that they do, if they figure out what Vail did. Angel says that there's no time. Connor confirms that if he kills Sahjhan, Vail won't bother Connor's family anymore. Angel nods, and then Connor gets up and asks, "What are we waiting for?" Angel and Connor head out while Wesley stares after them, looking like a mother who just lost an argument about what kind of fast food to pick up for dinner.
