They're interrupted when Wesley hustles Faith down the stairs and announces, "In about twenty minutes, the Council's operations team is coming in here to find you gone, and her drugged." After telling Angel there are three guys to deal with, Wesley gives Buffy a quick hello, and explains that he couldn't shake the Hellblazers, so he pretended to pay along with their plan. "Why aren't you?" Angel asks. Buffy cuts in to say, "I know these guys. They're killers." Well I guess then they can be in the club too, eh Buffy? Wesley says that the building is surrounded. By three people? Angel says he'll check the sewers and see if they can escape that way, and calls Faith. Whoops, she's gone. Angel declares, "She'd head for the roof." Because Faith can't get enough of falling from high places. Buffy runs after Faith, but Wesley stops Angel from tagging along, saying, "We need a plan. Buffy can protect Faith." Angel says, "I'm not sure that's her agenda," but hurries to the sewer trapdoor anyway. Wesley decides this is a good time to explain that he isn't helping for Faith's sake, but because he trusts Angel. "Well, more than three gun-toting maniacs, at any rate," he adds as they descend into the blipvert.
At police headquarters, Kate is asking someone, "Why should I listen to anything you have to say? I despise you. You and everything you represent." Anyone not know she's talking to the lawyers? Oh look, it's Lindsey. What a surprise. He tells Kate, "While it is true, we do differ on a great many issues, we do have one thing in common." Kate asks, "Our bodies are both eighty percent water?" Eighty? I thought it was in the high nineties? Maybe things are different in Los Angeles. "An enemy," Lindsey says, and offers Kate a photo of Angel. Kate plays dumb, but Lindsey goes on playing the devil's advocate (little joke there), "The law isn't clear on these matters. Take, for example, the creatures who murdered your father. They could never have been brought to any kind of traditional justice, even if they had survived. And personally, I feel you were totally justified in taking whatever kind of extra-legal measures that you found necessary." He goes on for a while about beings who are not governed by the rules of mankind, and finally indicates that Angel is one such being, "Which is why he gives aid and comfort to a known murderer." He finally spits out that Faith is with Angel, and giving a little Tom Selleck eyebrow-wiggle, exits.
Faith is on the roof, catching some of what passes for fresh air in Los Angeles, as Buffy tells her that she can't run. Faith asks, "You gonna throw me off the roof? Again?" Buffy asks if there's any reason why she shouldn't. Faith says she can't make it right. They argue, let's just leave it at that. Finally Faith says, "Angel said there was no way you were gonna give me a chance." Buffy snarls, "I tried so hard to help you, and you spat on me." First "bosom," now "spat." Buffy's been hanging around Giles too much. And when exactly was she trying to help Faith, exactly? Anyway, Buffy goes on, "Anything that you could take from me, you took. I've lost battles before, but nobody else ever made me a victim." Er, not even Angelus? Faith, finally fed up with all this, says, "And you can't stand that. You're all about control. You have no idea what it's like on the other side, when nothing's in control, nothing makes sense. There's just pain and hate, and nothing you do means anything, you can't even --" "Shut up!" Buffy says. That's telling her. Faith asks Buffy to tell her how to "make it better," which is when Hellblazer #1 appears and decides that his gun should be blazing right along with him. Buffy pulls Faith out of the line of fire.
