Cordelia and Wesley visit the generically named, "California Flower Mart." Something strange is going on with Cordy's hair; it looks particularly shaggy for some reason, but at least her clothing isn't too insane. Cordy is nervous about trying to find the Vigories without Angel, but Wesley says something about initiative and drive, which translates to brown-nosing, and then is briefly distracted by a flower called Nancy's Petticoat before they set off in search of a big pile of compost. They enter a storage area, and Cordelia hisses, "I'm sure we shouldn't have come here; it smells like flower poop." Flower poop? They duck behind some canisters when they hear Tay saying, "The portal will open soon, and only for a short while." He tells his troops to take the girl they caught to the "entry point" and send it home. He asks the zombified girl if she'd like to go home, and she stares blankly at him and says, "It is happy to go, as soon as you say." Apparently the ko also controls their ability to use first person pronouns. The girl is led away, and Tay declares, "This won't stop until we find Jhiera."
A short blipvert whisks us away to the Palm Ridge Spa. Which appears to have moved into the little hacienda that served as Russell's home in the series premiere. A lanky guy, who's got some kind of smarmy-yet-attractive James Spader look going for him, is raking a rock garden. Jhiera enters, and the guy greets her by saying, "Just when I needed the artistic eye of a goddess." Jhiera demands to know where the girls are. He responds, "And namaste to you, too. Apparently 'namaste' translates as 'you're welcome' although it is used as a greeting in, among other places, Nepal. They're right where you left them." As Jhiera strides off into the courtyard, the holistic boy asks, "Are you okay? You look spun." Jhiera and Holistic Bboy enter a small room which has three octagonal tubs in it, each of which contains a lot of ice and a half-naked girl. Jhiera asks Holistic Boy how they girls are, and he says, "They're chillin'!" All right: heh. Jhiera tells him that the Vigories recaptured one of the girls, and he says, "Man, that's lame!" I know he sounds like a stupid Bill & Ted clone, but he is pretty funny. Jhiera goes on to say that the Vigories are on her trail, and that they'll have to relocate. Holistic Boy says, "The girls aren't ready. They need serious isolation and temperature adjustment before they mellow out enough to deal with the world." When Jhiera insists that the girls have to be moved, he suggests, "My shaman has a place in the desert. He never could turn away scantily-clad women in distress -- from any dimension." Jhiera stares at him. He says, "I wish you'd let me work on your mirth chakra." I'm dying to know how these two hooked up. Jhiera asks if the shaman is trustworthy, and is told, "He's good people." Jhiera decides they'll move to the shaman's place in the morning, and scoops up a handful of ice to rub on herself.
