Needing some quiet time, Angel has decided to stare at some papers in his room. Maybe he's trying to figure out his taxes. He's also wearing a fawn-colored shirt. Well, is that fawn? There's a reason I mostly wear black myself, and that's because I can't keep track of crazy names for colors. It's not black, and it's not even dark blue. Are we sure that Willow gave him the right soul? After a moment, Angel says, "Come on in, Cordelia." Cordy enters and says, "That never stops creeping me out." After a beat, Angel replies, "Kinda creeped out myself." Heh. I think Cordy's growing her hair out, yay. Cordy changes the subject to ask if Angel's had any luck remembering clues. Angel says no, and frets, "I'm almost pining for the halcyon days of the Beast." Vocabulary word! He says, "Killing Manny, stealing my soul, murdering Lilah -- those were surgical strikes, not the smash-and-trash style of the Beast." Cordy asks who did all that, then, and Angel duhs, "His master." Cordy promptly says, "I'm his master." Wow, she can't keep a secret at all! Angel stares at her, and then Cordy goes on, more speculatively: "I'm his all-powerful master, and I'm gonna break into a guarded room, steal your soul from a safe -- not by ripping it open, but by using the combination -- then I'm gonna hunt and kill Lilah right under this very roof. Sure! Evil geniuses live for that playing-with-fire stuff." Angel insists that he's heard the Forced Evil speak, "and he's insane enough to pull those kinds of stunts!" Cordy wonders if Angel means the diabolical kind of insane. Angel chuckles and says no: "He spoke to me in this cheesy, self-important voice." He guesses that the Forced Evil is just making it up as he goes. He turns to look at Cordy, who's all frowny. Angel calmly assures her that they'll figure it out: "Anybody as daredevil-y as this guy will slip up sooner or later. And when he does, he's dead." Feel the corporate synergy? Then kneel before your entertainment overlords at 20th Century Fox! Angel looks at Cordy confidently, and she fakes a small smile.
Dispsomania may have affected Morimoto's guests. A woman says, "Meteor showers, earthquakes, that strange thing with the sun? I find it an exciting time to be in Los Angeles." A guy wearing an odd pendant nods his agreement. Morimoto adds, "I can't help but [sic] feel something wonderful is coming." Morimoto turns to Gunn, who isn't so sure about the wonderfulness. Gwen pulls Gunn aside and says that they're going to kill the girl after the party. She says that she'll cause a distraction while Gunn grabs Lisa. And then Gunn will sit outside with the girl until his limo turns up again. I guess I'll assume that they stashed a car somewhere nearby, because Gunn goes along with the plan and they split up.
