A blipvert lands on the Wolfram & Hart building. Lilah hurries into Lindsey's office and says that instead of killing Angel, Faith has moved into his apartment. Lindsey has an annoying habit of looking directly ahead into the empty air even though he's talking to Lee, who is standing two feet to his right. He asks, "Who else knows about this?" Lee says, "No one outside of this room." Well, and presumably Angel and Faith, right? Lindsey summarizes their position, which is basically, screwed, and asks, "How are we gonna fix it?" Cut to Lee, sitting there quietly with his massive contusions and neck brace, who hisses, "I say we kill her," through his wired jaw.
Faith has flashbacks to killing the Mayor's aide, and hears the voice of her conscience, which sounds a lot like Buffy whining, "You killed a man!" She reacts by stuffing her things back into her bag just as Angel enters. The captioning has Faith say, "Leave me alone," but I guess she was just thinking that very intently. Angel tells her she's in no condition to leave, and if she goes now, she'll be running for the rest of her life, which won't be very long. Faith tries to walk away, saying, "It doesn't matter." Angel spins her around and says it matters to him. She asks why he's being nice, and tries to walk past him out the door. When Angel doesn't move, she says, "[Are] you gonna step aside, or do we throw down? I mean, am I your prisoner here?" Angel says she isn't a prisoner, and Faith says, "So I'm free?" Angel says, "I don't know about that," and then pushes the door open and adds, "but the door's open." His other superhero identity is Captain Obvious. As Faith passes him and walks out into the hall, Angel starts getting all metaphorical: "Where are you gonna go? Back out into that darkness. I once told you [that] you didn't have to go out into that darkness, remember?" Which darkness was that? Oh, that darkness. Faith stops and tries to decide if she's wearing too much makeup (answer: yes) as Angel tries wacking her over the head with an extended metaphor. He says, "You thought you could just touch it. That you'd be okay. Five by five, right, Faith? But it swallowed you whole. So tell me, how'd you like it?" Faith suddenly whirls and punches him. Then she looks confused, and says, "Help me." Angel, his self-satisfaction validated, agrees to do so.
Wesley is angrily throwing darts at a pub. While sitting at a table, which is not proper form, but he keeps missing the bulls-eye, so that's okay. As he goes to collect the darts, another one whizzes by into the bulls-eye. He spins to see one of our old friends from the Watcher's Council "Team Hellblazer" squad, who tried to abduct Fuffy? Baith? (TM Ace? Sep?). The two other Hellblazers step into view as we go to commercial. After the ads, the Watcher's Hellblazers have taken a booth and are raising a few pints with an uncomfortable looking Wesley. The leader lights a cigarette, eyes the "no smoking" sign, and then dismisses it. Because, you know, he's evil and all. Wesley claims that California seemed like a nice enough place to re-evaluate his life after the Watcher's Council asked him to resign. Hellblazer #2 asks, "Wouldn't cough up the dosh for the airfare home, would they?" See, they're British. Wesley concedes that this is the case. Hellblazer #3 complains about how the Council has "all those alchemists on the board of directors, and they still make us fly coach." Heh. Hellblazer #1 says that the Council is frugal, but not stupid, and "willing to admit when they've made a mistake." He tells Wesley that the Council will reinstate him as a Watcher -- over what? Don't you need a Slayer to be a Watcher? Hellblazer #1 adds that no one blames Wesley for what happened in Sunnydale. Wesley's surprised to hear that: "I rather got the impression [that] they did when they sacked me." Maybe they just fired you for being a git, Wesley. Hellblazer #1 says that it was a mistake that can be corrected, just as Hellblazer #2 hands Wesley a dossier. Wesley opens it and pulls out a photograph of Faith. Hellblazer #1 says that they know Faith is with Angel, demonstrating Lilah's infallibility. Wesley closes up the dossier and refuses to help. Hellblazer #3 makes a crack about Wesley being loyal to a vampire. Hellblazer #1 says that a rogue Slayer is much more dangerous than a vampire. I wish these guys had names. Wesley asks why they want his help when they already know where Faith is, since, after all, "you three are the best, the Council's elite --" As the Hellblazers look everywhere but at Wesley, he figures it out. Looking rather pleased by the idea, he asks, "She cleaned your clocks, didn't she?" Hellblazer #1 says that Faith "has power, and the willingness to use that power for evil. She must be stopped." He thinks he's John Constantine, but he ain't.
