Angel wanders through the police station until Kate spots him. "I have the info on your license plate," she tells him. If she's expecting a "thank you," she's out of luck. Angel stares ahead mutely. Kate asks if he's okay, "Not that the brooding, man-of-mystery thing isn't working for you. It is. A lot." Ugh. I've decided to believe that Kate is, quite understandably, suspicious about Angel, and where all of his money comes from, and so on, and as a result she continues hitting on him in this embarrassing way as an excuse to ask him personal questions and find out what he's up to. I'm not claiming there's any evidence for this, it's just my little way of retaining a shred of respect for her. Anyway, Angel asks if he can talk to Kate in private. She leads him to a conference room, where crime-scene photos hang on the bulletin board. He asks how the investigation is going, and Kate complains, "Some of your more inconsiderate serial killers fail to leave us any clues." Yeah, like ritual markings on the victims. That's not a clue or anything.
Kate pulls a necklace out from under her shirt and starts toying with it like a thirteen-year-old, while Angel pays a little visit to Flashback-land. The Penn family lies dead around their dinner table, crosses scratched into their cheeks. Then there's a major blipvert, with quick flashes of dead people from the past and present. Finally Angel says, "He's reliving it." We see that Kate has a cross hanging from her necklace. She asks what he means, and Angel says, "It' s complicated." Then he asks, "Do you trust me?" Kate says, "You know I do." She does? He does? When did that happen? Angel pulls out a pencil sketch of Penn, pins it to the bulletin board and says, "Trust me when I tell you this is the man you're looking for." Kate demands that Angel explain, but Angel just repeats, "Do you trust me?" Kate asks if he's protecting a source. Angel doesn't answer. Eventually Kate realizes that she has to answer Angel's questions, but he doesn't have to answer hers, because Angel is just a big, brooding five-year-old. Kate finally repeats, "Yes, I trust you." Angel says, "His next victim will be a white male, adolescent. He'll take him off the streets in a low-rent neighborhood, probably near a bar or a liquor store, and he'll kill him just like he did these others, unless you use every resource this department has to make sure he's not successful this time." Angel walks out to his car, where Wesley sits. Wesley asks, "So you told her everything?" "Just enough to get her killed" is Angel's response. He hands Wesley a police radio and explains the clever plan: "Once I hook this up, if she finds something, we'll know about it." Wesley asks where Angel got the radio. "Police car" is the obvious response.
