Sam is trying to keep the door shut so that the vampires can't enter the room. Angel is sulking in a corner because Sam can't pay him. Angel reluctantly helps block the door as he admits that Sam's motives were noble, and adds, "It's not as if I haven't been accused of nobility myself once or twice." No fear of that happening after this episode. Angel wonders if they can work something out, and asks if Sam owns a car, or a house, or a credit card. Alas, Sam's pretty well tapped out. Again, I have mixed feelings, because I can appreciate how the money-grubbing jerkitude leaves what was admirable about Angel in smoldering ruins. On the other hand, totally removed from context, this scene entertains me. I like the hero who doesn't actually want to be heroic. I'd watch a show about someone like that. But that's not what this show's about.
Fred solves the puzzle! Turns out the blocks had to be piled into a pyramid. Boy, nobody could have figured that out but Fred. To be fair, maybe the demons aren't very bright, either. By their standards, putting blocks together might signify genius. Let's not be speciesist. The demons excitedly lead Fred away from the puzzle -- to her doom! I hope. Just as Fred starts wondering where Cary is, her question is answered. Cary is tied up and lying on the floor near the dying demon's chair. Fred is quickly placed in another chair and tied down. Fred worries, "I don't have to marry him, do I?" Interesting guess, but save that for another episode. Cary explains to Fred what's going on, but we already know, and knew from the first time we saw them, so let's move on to the part where Cordelia enters. Carrying the baby. I guess that's okay; she couldn't leave it at home, right? I don't know. Cordy asks Cary to explain that there's been a misunderstanding; she's returning the money, but the demons will have to release Fred and Cary. Cary talks to the demons, who don't seem pleased. Then Cary explains, "I told them what they had to do, and told them what would happen if they didn't do it!" It turns out that Cary's assumed that Gunn, Wesley, and Angel are nearby, ready to attack. Cordy kicks Cary in the shins and points out that he could have confirmed that with her first, since the demons wouldn't understand what they were saying. Okay, she doesn't, but I would have. Pack of morons, all of them.
