Downstairs, Cary moves enough to let us know that he's not dead.
Wesley helps Gunn walk to...somewhere.
Down on the street, Angel rolls over. "A little help?" he fails to say. He reaches up and yanks the stake out of his neck, then gasps in pain for a while.
A sheet of plastic is torn down from a window so we can look at the volcanic burst of flame that's roaring up into the sky. It suddenly fades out, and there are explosions up in the clouds as it starts, yes, raining fire. "What's happening?" Connor asks, as he and Cordy watch. Well, it's raining fire. Pretty self-explanatory, if you ask me. There were also a lot of comments in the forums about how all the buildings should be catching on fire. It's terribly hard to judge scale, but I don't have trouble believing that this is more like a shower of sparks falling than huge blistering fireballs. Think of it as a light spinkle of fire. Connor suspects that Satan is behind this phenomenon, but Cordy says, "We don't know that." Yeah, Connor, don't go pinning every little thing that goes wrong on Satan! This could be a coincidence. Connor blames himself for not stopping Satan. Cordy says it's not his fault, and Connor asks, "What if it is?" He points out that Satan rose at the site of his birth, and sniffs, "I was never supposed to happen. The child of two vampires. What if --?" Cordy's sure that it has nothing to do with Connor. She whispers, "It's not you, baby, it's not you," over and over, and strokes his hair, and then they kiss. I was hoping she'd finish that with, "It's not you, it's me," but nope. When they stop, Connor asks why she kissed him. Cordy answers, "Because I don't think it matters anymore." How flattering. Forget the college fund, Angel. All that money should be spent on extensive therapy for your kid. Cordy talks about how Connor's been so deprived, saying, "[You've never had] anything that's real. And if this is the end, I want you to have something that is." Real, honest, pity-sex. How...sweet? She puts his hand on her hip and kisses him again as a tear drips down Connor's cheek. This is so tremendously odd.
