Meanwhile, Wesley's doing pretty much the same thing. But with more success, and less slow motion. Trashcan-lid-fu, chain-fu.
Satan-fu. Faith gets clobbered and kicked and taunted some more. She spits some blood into Satan's face, but he's made of sterner stuff than Notsferatu, so it doesn't bother him. She's spun around, slammed down, and kicked into slow-motion with bonus taunting. "Somebody should break this up," Angelus observes, as Faith clambers out of some rubble. Faith crawls across the floor slowly, too injured to escape. I kinda feel for her. Not so much because of the story, but because this recap is kicking my ass, and the less said about my day job, the better, and...well, I sympathize with feeling beaten down right now. Or am I oversharing? Satan asks, "This is all you are?" Oh great, now Satan's caught the taunting bug. Satan says, "My master's power is beyond all limits, beyond your petty...imagining." "Petty imagining"? What? Satan continues, "You're nothing. You could not even defeat me." "Ain't that the truth?" Angelus chirps, suddenly appearing next to Satan. Angelus gloats about how powerful Satan is, saying, "Pretty much the only thing that could do damage to that thick, stony hide is himself. Or maybe, I dunno -- maybe a piece of himself!" With that, he pulls out the stone-bone knife and plunges it into Satan's back. Angelus dives out of the way as Satan groans and struggles to reach around and pull out the knife. Faith shields her eyes as light tears through Satan's hide. Angelus gibbers, "I knew it!" as Satan wails and more light pours out of him.
Light streams out of the building and up toward the sun. A bloodied Wesley looks up as the blackness covering the sun is blasted away. Hooray, I suppose. Paco and his friend look at each other and are quickly coated in flames. Hee. Wesley heads for the warehouse.
Faith watches as a Satan-shaped pile of coal crumbles to the floor. She looks at the sunlit window. Angelus does, too, and sighs, "Aw, crap. Killing the Beast really does bring back the sun? I thought that was Angel's retarded fantasy." Well why the hell did you want to kill Satan, Angelus? Faith grabs some chains hanging from a pulley and hauls herself upright while Angelus goes on blathering about how he wanted Satan to "soften [Faith] up." Whatever. So he killed Satan so he could kill Faith himself. And he couldn't just dart in and grab Faith, because we've all seen how Satan is ever so speedy. Angelus advances toward Faith, and she swings the heavy chains toward him. Angelus easily side-steps the chains and goes on chattering obliviously as the chains swing past him and crash through the window. Okay, I liked that, because I didn't see it coming, and punishing Angelus for his overconfidence is amusing. Sunlight streams into the room, and Angelus darts into the shadows. He looks back at Faith, who has collapsed in the middle of a patch of light on the floor. Angelus says, "I guess we'll just have to take a raincheck on that whole 'eviscerating you' thing. Just you and me now, Faithy." He winks, and heads out. Because there's a whole ten feet of sunlight protecting Faith. And there's nothing in the warehouse he could use to block the sunlight long enough to grab her, in her weakened condition. Like, say, piles of boxes, and crates, and barrels, and oh, why bother.
