Two vampires from the bar lead Angelus under an overpass. Angelus asks where Satan was going, and the dark-haired vamp -- whose name turns out to be Paco -- duhs that he can't remember. Angelus threatens an amusingly craven Paco, snarling, "I don't have time to --" Then he suddenly releases Paco and walks forward. So Angelus is in a big hurry to find Satan, but we still have no idea why. Which would be fine if there turned out to be a reason, but that's not going to happen, so I'm getting in some complaining in advance. As Angelus walks away, Paco calls, "Hey man, you want we should come with?" Angelus leaves, and Paco starts yelling at his buddy, shouting, "Man, you made him nervous!" Heh. I like Paco.
Gunn and Fred carry an assortment of jars into the lobby. Cary's on the phone with the Furies and taking notes about the anti-violence spell. There's some business about ingredients where it turns out that the MoG are using supplies from the kitchen for the spell, and after cloves are substituted for bloodroot everything's fine. This scene. Is. Too. Long. Connor feels the same way, judging by the way he paces around and snaps, "Hurry up and do it!" Oh wait, he's just still whining about the use of magic. Great, now he's making the scene take longer. That's the last time I take your side, Connor. Connor wants to go Angelus-hunting. Fred says, "Wesley says we shouldn't go after him." Fred has changed clothes and hairstyles again. Connor complains that Wesley isn't his boss, and complains about how long Wesley is taking to chop off Lilah's head. Gunn says that they all need to stay together until they've decided what to do. Connor reminds them, "Angel told me, something goes wrong, I kill him." Cary shoots back, "Now you listen to [Angel]?" This argument goes round in circles some more, and while Connor is being annoying I have to say that he's pretty much right. If they're going to go hunt Angelus anyway, the spell is pointless, and they should go hunt Angelus, because it's their fault he's out there. And he's right about how well magic's been working for them lately, too. Connor finally declares, "[Angelus] has to be destroyed. And I'm the Destroyer." He heads for the door without bothering to take any weapons, which is where he loses me again. Cordy stands up and tells him to get back in here, young man. When he doesn't stop, she moans, "You can't..." and collapses. Gunn and Fred rush to help her up, and Connor finally turns back. He insists on taking her upstairs by himself, and I wait eagerly for a freaky shot like the one at the end of "What's My Line?" where Juliet Landau is pushing James Marsters along on a cart or something because she can't really carry him. As it turns out, Connor just supports Cordelia's shoulder and leads her to the stairs, which isn't helping her all that much. As they exit, Gunn tells Cary, "First chance that boy gets, he's gonna kill Angelus." And that's a bad thing because why? What were you trying to do with the axe-hurling before, Gunn? Cary says "We can't keep that boy in check," and Gunn replies, "Angel aside, who could?"
