First, some serial killers have claimed to have multiple personality disorder, but it's pretty rare, and I can't imagine what basis Kate has for even mentioning it, except to slander people who actually suffer from this problem. Second, "painful break-up" is way down on the list for inspiring homicidal behavior. Often, serial killers have ongoing relationships even while they pursue their little hobbies. Third, I'd really like to know what leads Kate to believe this is an experienced killer when they only have three bodies, and why she doesn't mention whatever it is to the other cops. She doesn't even mention where the victims were found, or whether they were moved after their deaths. Plus, has she provided any useful information here? A white male. No age, no description of his habits, in what area of town to look for him, no mention of those "clue" things that I hear detectives are into. Finally, for the three victims to be so different is very unusual, and is yet another reason to nix the "bad break-up" idea, since then the killer would probably focus on people who resembled his ex. Okay, I know that all of these things were mentioned to make us think that maybe Angel is the killer, but come on, we know he isn't, so don't bother.
Cordy is closing up the office for the night. I'm looking forward to the episode on which she has to prepare her tax forms. She opens the door to find Wesley standing there, holding a stake. Wesley enters, closes the door, and asks where Angel is. "Not here" is Cordy's pithy response. Wesley reminds Cordy of his mix-up with the morning paper earlier, and says, "That's when I saw this," pulling out a clipping. Cordy stares at it in horror and says, "Oh my God. You cut up Doctor Folger's newspaper? You're gonna get us kicked out of this building!" If no one's complained about the demons crashing in through windows, why would they care about a stolen newspaper? Also, note yet another coffee reference in the good doctor's name. Wesley encourages Cordy actually to read the clipping, and Cordy painstakingly sounds out the words. "Third body found in alley. So?" Wesley says, "Note the modus operandi. The mutilation of the corpse with the religious icon?" Wesley explains that as Watcher, he did research on Angel in Sunnydale. "In the late 1700s, it was Angelus's custom to sign his victims by carving a Christian cross into their left cheek. He liked to let people know he'd been there." A Christian cross. Not that other, different-looking kind. Cordy speaks for us all when she tells Wesley, "You get to leave now." She continues, "You're not going to come in here and accuse Angel like this. I don't care how many files you have on all the horrible things that he did back in the powdered-wig days! He is good now, and he is my friend, and nothing you or anyone else can say will make me turn on a friend." An uncharacteristic display of loyalty there, or maybe she's just angling for a raise since Angel has suddenly entered behind Wesley. Angel comments, "He's right." I guess she was after a raise, because Cordy tells Wesley, "You stake him, and I'll cut his head off." Wesley aims a cross at Angel and orders, "Come no closer!" "I'm not going to hurt you," Angel insists. "Why should we believe a thing you say?" Wesley asks. Angel laughs, twists Wesley's arm around, grabs him by the neck, and says, "Because that's how fast I could take you if I wanted to." There's a brief glimpse of the old Angelus we knew and loved! Or, at least, knew and didn't despise quite as much.
