Angel is grouching his way through the lobby. The elevator dings, and we hear Connor, off-screen, call, "Hey Dad!" Angel freezes for a moment, and then turns to see Connor by the elevator, all clean-cut and preppy. Creepy! Angel stares, and inhales quickly like maybe the sight of his son makes him sneeze.
Credits. Johanna screams, "Aaaa, creepy kid!" I figure she means Connor, but it turns out that there was an ad for Godsend. After she's recovered from that, Johanna says that Wesley and Angel are both being jerks. I agree, and say that I expected Angel to be more sympathetic. Especially considering how often he's had to mourn his own girlfriends. Or maybe the problem is that he's used to it. Some of them died several times, after all; it probably gets to seem routine.
When we return, Angel stifles his urge to sneeze and instead gasps, "What are you..." He looks sort of stuck in between terrified and delighted. Hee. And aw. Connor repeats, "Dad?" and of course he's talking to his dad, Mr. Reilly, who is waving him over from across the lobby. Connor tells his folks, "You know they have dried scorpions in the vending machines downstairs?" Heh. Wesley calls Angel, and introduces him to the Reillys, explaining that they want to discuss something about their son. Angel interrupts: "No." Wesley blinks as Angel says that there's been a mistake: "We can't help you." Angel walks away quickly while the Reillys look uncomfortable.
Angel's office. Wesley tells Angel about the hit-and-run while Angel stares through the windows at the Reillys, out in the lobby. Angel insists that they don't have time for "small stuff like this." Wesley argues, "This is what we do. Or what we're supposed to do," and adds that the Reillys seem like good people. Angel sits at his desk and grumbles, "All the more reason to get them out of here. We know what this place does to good people."
A fresh heart lands on the pile in suburb-hell. Gunn lies on the table as the big demon marches away and wipes the blood off his knife. Zoom in on Gunn's bloody chest, which is ripped open and ew ew ew! Then CGI magically slurps the wound closed, the blood vanishes, and there's a brief shining moment of semi-shirtless Gunn before he suddenly sits up with a scream. Gunn gets off the table and looks around, muttering, "I was lookin' for something...." The demon hold out a small lightbulb. Heh. Gunn takes the bulb and calls, "It's okay, found it!" as he heads upstairs.
