Faith asks how she can possibly tell Wesley, "Gee, sorry I nearly tortured you to death." Angel suggests leaving off the "gee," and adds, "I think you have to ask yourself, are you?" Faith says there are some things you can't take back even if you are sorry. Angel agrees, and says he some experience with that. While Faith complains about how guilty she feels, and how much it hurts, Angel veers wildly from good cop to bad cop. He ends up by saying, "All that pain, all that suffering you caused, is coming back on you. Feel it. Deal with it. Then maybe you got a shot at being free." Late, Johanna asks me, "Remember how Angel got himself confused with Faith, and forgot that he was the one that killed and tortured thousands of people, and that she only accidentally killed a guy and started some fights." Before someone complains, I'd like to point out that the Professor was the only one of Faith's victims who could really be described as an innocent victim. Faith laughs that she's "the first Slayer in history to be sponsored by a vampire." Angel points out that he has experience with that role, and Faith is hit with another wave of good, clean guilt. She moans, "B -- how am I ever gonna make things right with her?" Angel says that this isn't about Buffy. While eating a slice of pizza at home, Buffy's keen Slayer powers suddenly kick in. "There's someone in the world who hasn't realized that everything that has ever happened is all about me!" she shouts, horrified. Immediately she prepares to correct this terrible error.
Meanwhile, Faith rewrites history: "All my life, there was only one person who tried to be my friend, went out of their way when I had no right or reason to expect her to, and then -- I screwed her." Adolescent males across the country begin demanding details. Faith goes on, "Not to mention her boyfriend. Only, him, literally." Angel, confused, as usual, says, "Faith, you and I never --" Faith explains, "No, not you. The new one." Angel stares. Hee hee hee! Faith realizes her error, and says, "Oh my god. Angel, I'm so sorry." Angel makes an impressive fake recovery, saying, "There! You can say it! That's good." As Faith turns away, Angel goes in search of a nice firm wall he can slam his skull against for a while. Hope his prominent brow doesn't leave any dents in the bricks.
Lee and Lilah and Lindsey tell an unseen person that they appreciate the help. While Lilah pours coffee, because she may be a high-powered demonic attorney, but she's still the girl, they show this someone that Faith is "tougher than she looks." Lindsey says, "The point is that we want her dead." Lilah adds that there won't be a written contract, and "this is strictly a handshake deal." After a moment Lindsey adds, "Not that it's necessary for you to have hands in order for us to do business with you." Lilah, chagrined, apologizes for being "speciesist." She's interrupted with a blue bumpy demon with big sharp teeth and black hair attacks its coffee. Literally. Guess it didn't take offense.
