Cordy marches down the hall, with Gunn and Fred still trailing behind her. Fred tries to tempt her with a sandwich, and I bet she just wants to try out the taser again. Gunn chimes in, "We have cookies!" Hee. Cordy says that she wants to talk to Angel, "sans sidekicks." Gunn calls after her, "I am not a sidekick." Two running gags in one episode! Whee!
Angel knocks on Cary's door. Cary tells him to go away. Angel says, "If it's that bad, I need to know!" Cary opens the door and says, "It's that bad. G'night!" Angel wants details, and Cary whines that whatever he saw made him puke and he'd rather not think about it anymore. Cary finally asks, "Do the words 'Slouching Toward Bethlehem' ring a bell?" Ding ding ding! Gosh, Cary's gotten two titles in a row. He continues, "Or how about, 'despair, torment, terror.' And I'm not referring to little missy's choice of song, either, although that horrifying in its own right." He's such an unappeasable Host. Cary says he just saw details and flashes, but he didn't like it much. "Evil's coming, Angel, and it's planning on staying."
Blipvert to Wesley and Lilah, full of passionate intensity. And suddenly I think I know what Cary saw horrible flashes of. No wonder he felt sick. Lilah tells Wesley that Wolfram & Hart know about the two of them, and so does Angel. Wesley says, "I could care less what he thinks." By which he means that he couldn't care less. I hate that so much. Lilah points out that Wesley said the same thing about Angel's submersion, and it turns out he did care a little after all. So maybe he did really mean that he could care less before, but I doubt it. Wesley ends the discussion by saying, "So Angel knows about our relationship. Big deal." Lilah gloats, "A dollar! You owe me a dollar!" She also straddles Wesley, aaiiee, and we see that she's wearing a red negligée. Wesley curses, and we learn that his mistake was using the word "relationship." Lilah teases, "You lost the bet! You said it first!" Wesley pulls his wallet off the nightstand and holds out a dollar for Lilah. She tells him to sign it, "as proof." They start kissing as we cut away. I can't tell if it's more disturbing when they're cutsey or when they're kinky. They're just different kinds of disturbing, I suppose.
Cordy's wandering around the Hyperion, still looking for Angel. She hears a noise, assumes that Gunn and Fred are following her, and turns to yell at them. But it turns out that it's Cary's drooly client from earlier. He tells Cordy, "You smell good," and then his mouth splits open into four tooth-encrusted flaps. Hey, that isn't bad. I mean, it is bad, but the special effect isn't.
