Spicule's apartment. How's he paying for it, again? Oh, maybe all those mysterious comments about Spicule officially joining the MoG meant that he's getting paid now. All righty. And apparently he redecorated, too. Anyway, all of the MoG (except Angel, obviously) have gathered there so that Drogyn can tell them his story. I guess Drogyn got patched up in the meantime, because he seems fine as he explains that a Sathari demon tried to assassinate him last night. Spicule helps Drogyn to make a long story short, and Drogyn says he tortured the demon "for hours" to find out who sent him: "It was Angel." Drogyn says that Angel was afraid he would find something in the Deeper Well: "Something that would uncover the truth about his involvement." Gunn asks what Drogyn means, and Drogyn says that Angel helped Illyria to escape the Well. Wesley says that he thought Illyria's escape was predestined, and I grumble to myself yet again about what "predestined" means. Drogyn's all, "I thought so, too, but maybe not." Swell. Cary asks why Angel would want to set Illyria free, but Drogyn thinks Illyria wasn't the point: "Before he died, the assassin said something about a sacrifice. Someone trusted and dear." Wesley asks Drogyn if he thinks Angel deliberately sacrificed Fred. Any second now, Drogyn is going to demand that they all get their hearing checked. Drogyn insists that he thought Angel was an ally, and so he's sad to report this. Gunn asks if maybe the assassin was lying, and Drogyn huffs, "No one lies when they're at the mercy of my wrath." Next, Gunn wonders if Drogyn is lying, but Spicule explains that Drogyn can't. Wesley adds, "This is Drogyn, the Battlebrand. Given eternal youth a thousand years ago. Demon-bane, truth-sayer." Off everyone's looks, Wesley explains, "Watcher's Council."
Wesley goes on to show Drogyn the sketch of the mysterious spikey circular symbol, but Drogyn doesn't recognize it. Wesley tells the others how the symbol appeared in his book. Cary still can't believe that Angel would be involved in any of this, but Wesley points out that Angel's been acting strangely. They wonder what caused the sudden change in his behavior, and Illyria explains, "They've only got two episodes to wrap this all up." Oh, sorry, no, she says, "He's preparing to make his move." Wesley proposes a daring plan: they should ask Angel what's up. Hey! That's practically smart. Especially on this show, where characters never talk to each other when they can leap to conclusions instead. They head out, but Wesley says that someone should stay behind and guard Drogyn. Spicule volunteers Illyria, since she doesn't care about all this stuff anyway. As everyone else leaves, Spicule shows Illyria the amenities and suggests that she might enjoy playing Crash Bandicoot. Shut up, Spicule.
