As the MoG run away from the soldiers, Cary wails, "I really hate today!"
Wesley is puzzling over how to make the orb work. Angel asks, "So this high priest holds the true name?"
Soldiers hurry through the tunnels.
Wesley guesses that the priest will be "bigger and meaner than [their] big, mean friend over there." Angel suddenly looks up and says, "Something's going down." Something with the man? After another minute -- during which I assume he's sniffing the air -- or possibly listening to the distant noise, he sighs, "Connor."
Connor leads the soldiers down a tunnel and suddenly stops to sneer, "Angel."
Jasmine stands in her room and says, "Angel."
Fred runs along and gasps, "Angel!" It's like a theme. But without the significance. Cary moans, "Oh, God, are we dead yet?" Angel suddenly calls to them and leads them into the Yuckmeister's lair. Wesley's puzzling over the orb, "No words..." As the MoG run in, Angel closes the steel door.
The soldiers arrive outside and start pounding against the door.
The MoG lean against the door to hold it. Except Wesley, who's too busy pacing and talking about how useless words are. Anyone who's heard him talk already knows that. He grumbles, "No word magic. Powerless. Much more power in...blood magic?" He puts his hand on a small wound on his head, and then touches the orb. And is instantly zapped into another dimension, where he dies because he can't breathe. Okay, that doesn't happen, but it would have served him right. When you think you've figured it out, you give the thing to Angel and let him try it, for heaven's sake! The orb glows more brightly and starts crackling with energy. He calls for Angel as the orb emits crackling light that forms a portal. Angel tells the others to go while he holds the door. Wesley explains that the atmosphere will kill the rest of them. Of course, there's no guarantee that it won't kill Angel, too. I mean, what if the atmosphere is all fiery? Wesley runs up to the door and quotes Angel: "Someone who knows the truth has to live through this." Fred chimes in, "Hearts get in the way, right?" Angel moves away and lets Wesley take his place. Wesley's brain starts working for a second as he suddenly remembers to give Angel the orb in case he needs it to get back or something. Angel looks at the MoG, and Wesley is totally not helping them hold the door at all. Everybody else is groaning and struggling, and he's just casually leaning against it with one arm. The music swells. Angel looks at the portal, strolls into it, and vanishes. Wesley says they can't hold the door, and while I know there's a lot going on, I keep waiting for someone to look up and see the horrible mass of mangled bodies on the other side of the room. Gunn declares, "Time for the big fight scene!" He starts to count to three.
