Post-break. Clad in a leather jacket, leather pants, and a black t-shirt, Wesley says, "I'll wager you never thought you'd see me again." Angel smirks, and says, "To tell you the truth, I hadn't given it much thought one way or the other." So he's been spared the ongoing dread that the rest of us have been suffering under. Wesley, still holding the crossbow, starts telling Angel not to make any sudden moves, so of course Angel has to swat the crossbow against the wall. Damn you, Wesley, for Angel seem marginally cool by comparison. Angel notes that Wesley has adopted a different look, and asks if the Watchers' Council is trying a new image. Wesley says that he doesn't work for the Council any more, and implies that he decided to strike out on his own to battle evil. "They fired you," summarizes Angel. Wesley denies this, and insists that since Buffy had turned her back on the Council, there was no one to Watch, "And that's why I became a Rogue Demon Hunter." Angel manages not to laugh. Wesley says he's on the trail of a "particularly nasty bugger" at the moment, and tells Angel to stay out of his way. Angel insists that Wesley has the wrong demon. Wesley says he's followed a trail of mutilated corpses: "Each of the victims possessed some unique power: telepathy, poison tongues, healing hands...Whatever the physical source of their power it was ripped, gouged, torn from their corpses." They conclude that the murderer is taking these powers for some nasty purpose. Angel describes Barney to find out if that's who Wesley is after, but Wesley describes the killer as "quite enormous, and powerful. More of a yellow-green. And it seems lately to be secreting some sort of viscous fluid." "Like that?" asks Angel, noting some goo that has been dripping onto Wesley's shoulder. Wesley and Angel look up just as the new demon drops down onto them from the ceiling. He's not actually that enormous, but he seems to be reasonably powerful. Wesley is hurled across the room, and Angel is kicked to the floor. Wesley shoots the demon with his crossbow, causing it to jump out through the window and run away.
In Angel's vamp-cave, Cordy tries to sketch a picture of her mysterious blob. Barney suggests that drawing can be therapeutic, and explains that he sensed Cordy's pain. Cordy says, "My kind thinks that some things are private. So maybe you shouldn't be nosing around other people's feelings without asking them." Why didn't anyone ever say that to Counselor Troi? Barney apologizes, then Cordy apologizes, and then they talk about Doyle. Cordy describes Doyle by saying, "He drank too much. And his taste in clothing was like a Greek tragedy. And he could be really sweet sometimes." She goes on to mention that Doyle was half-demon, and speculates that this explains why "he sometimes smelled weird." Cordy tells Barney that he reminds her of Doyle, which Barney decides to take as a compliment for some unknown reason. Wesley and Angel, the leather twins, arrive. Barney panics upon seeing Wesley, and leaves the room, saying, "That's the guy that was after me!" Angel points Wesley toward his home library and goes to reassure Barney.
