She

SWMBR pulls up at a museum and enters, putting on a dark hood and some sunglasses to disguise herself as a rock star. She tells a security guard that a man is following her, and points out Angel, identifying him by his black coat. As Angel follows her past the Impressionist paintings, he pulls off his jacket and buttons the top button of his shirt. I guess that's his version of a disguise. Guards begin to converge on Angel, so he suddenly stops by a painting and starts playing tour guide: "And this brings us to Manet's incomparable 'La Musique Aux Tuilières,' first exhibited in 1863." The guards are, naturally, taken in by this and cannot figure out where the mysterious stalker could be. Meanwhile, SWMBR makes her way to an art restoration room. Angel eyes the guards as he goes on lecturing, pointing out Baudelaire among the crowd of people in the painting. He says, "Baudelaire -- interesting fellow. In his poem 'Le Vampire,' he wrote, 'Thou who abruptly as a knife didst come into my heart.' He strongly believed that evil forces surrounded mankind, and some even speculated that the poem was about a real vampire." Angel chuckles with the crowd, then as the guards disperse, adds, "Oh, and Baudelaire was actually a little taller, and a lot drunker, than he's depicted here." The crowd applauds as Angel exits, I guess because he finally shut his pretentious mouth.

"Aha!" says Wesley, causing Cordelia to suddenly wake up from the nap she was taking at her desk. "That better be an 'aha' of triumph!" she complains. "I was dreaming there was a going-out-of-business sale at Neiman's!" Wesley says he's identified Tay as one of the Vigories of Oden Tal. He says that the Vigories "are said to be fierce warriors, and the women live enslaved to them." Cordelia asks if there's anything that would help them track down Tay. Wesley looks in his book and tells her, "It says that the man are herbivores. They eat a thick stew made from rotting plants and flowers. And they need to consume half their body-weight a day." Cordy asks, "So, we're looking for, like, the biggest compost heap in L.A.?"

SWMBR turns around to find Angel entering the art restoration room. She says, "You? How? A human would have been unconscious for hours." This somehow leads her to conclude that Angel is a vampire. Angel asks who Tay is, and what he wants, and who killed the security guy, and who put the tribbles in the quadrotriticale, and what was in the grain that killed them. All right, he doesn't ask those last two. I've been taking cold medication for three days, don't expect me to be coherent. SWMBR asks why Angel thinks she'll answer his questions. Angel says "Gotta risk it. Call me old-fashioned, but I can't allow tourists to go around torching locals." Yeah, only natives get to set fire to each other around here, missy! SWMBR tells him, rather insistently, to leave. "Why, what's going to happen?" Angel asks.
