Cut to the Reilly family in their SUV. The folks are wondering where else they can look for help with their trust. From the back seat, Connor ahems that he knows this is all about "the van thing," not their finances. Mrs. Reilly starts to apologize, and Connor cheerily says, "It's cool. I mean, my parents are liars and I can never trust them again, but it's cool." He reassures them that he's okay and that they shouldn't worry. As they pull into a motel parking lot, Connor concludes that it's weird, but nothing to be scared about. And, of course, that's when a demon rips the door off the SUV and yanks Connor out. More demons appear. They look kind of like red Hare Krishnas dressed up for a Renaissance festival. The demons pull Mrs. Reilly out of the car as well, and Mr. Reilly tries to rescue her. Seeing his mom in danger, Connor suddenly wallops one demon, knocking him across the parking lot. Connor looks at his hands, baffled, and I really wanted him to say, "Nice!" here, but he doesn't. The demon hops straight back and knocks Connor down. And then Angel leaps into battle from behind a car. There's fighting, and neck-snapping, and this shot that I think must have been reversed, where Angel picks up a demon, because it looks really gravity-defying and cool. I liked that fight a lot. Having dispatched the demons, Angel turns to Connor, who boggles, "You almost broke that guy in half! That was awesome!" Well, that was okay, but it was the flippy pick-up thing that was really impressive.
Commercials. I tell Johanna that if she wants to have revenge for all the mean things I say about Xander, she could say mean things about Connor. She replies, "But I don't want to say mean things about Connor. I want to adopt him."
When we return, Connor is still being a big Angel fanboy, and Angel is eating it up. Angel tries and fails to sound modest as he says, "I do stuff like that a lot. There was this one time in France --" Heh. They're interrupted as the Reillys call for Connor, and he rushes over to make sure that they're okay. Mr. Reilly has a nasty cut on his temple. Angel suggests that they take him to one of Wolfram & Hart's doctors, adding that he and Connor should chat.
Traffic-vert. Angel leads Connor out of the medical facility, and assures him that Mr. Reilly is "in good hands. Or claws, as the case may be." Dr. Zoidberg works there? Well, it's good that he found work. Connor asks what the Hare Krishnas were, and Angel says that they were demons. Connor stops suddenly and asks if he is a demon, too. Angel says no, Connor's a normal kid with "enhanced abilities." Connor asks, "And you're a vampire?" I guess that bit of exposition happened off-camera, which I'm okay with. Angel nods really smugly. Hee! Connor processes that, and summarizes the situation by saying, "I'm some kind of...superhero. Okay!" They pedeconference as Connor wonders how he'll explain things to his folks, and asks whether Angel has any family. Angel looks at Connor and quietly says, "No." Aw. Connor realizes that was a silly question, and asks, "What are you, like five hundred years old?" Angel stammers and asks if he looks five hundred years old. Connor's next question is, "Do you spend all your time making out with other vampires, like in Anne Rice novels?" Angel just says no, which could mean that he only spends some of his time doing that. I'm just saying. And then Angel adds, "I used to, but...." Connor asks whether Angel has a girlfriend, and when Angel says no, Connor figures he must be lonely. Angel says, "I keep busy." As they turn down another corridor, Connor continues his interrogation, asking if Angel and his co-workers "fight crime and save the world." Angel grimly says that's the idea. Connor asks if everyone at the firm is a superhero. Angel answers, "It's mostly paralegals and secretaries; pretty boring, really." Naturally, that's when Spicule is knocked through a set of nearby doors and out into the hall. Spicule screams, "You filthy harlot!" and rushes back into the room. After a beat, Angel asks if Connor would like to meet some of the staff, and leads him into the lab.
