Somnambulist

Kate peruses the bookshelves at a place called Ancient Eye. Angel walks the streets. Penn scratches his ear. I brew some cocoa while nothing but a montage happens for over a minute. Finally there's a knock on Kate's door as she pores over some books. She opens the door to find Angel, who asks if he can come in. Kate says, "Oh, that's right, you have to be invited in, don't you?" Angel blinks and notes, "You've been doing your homework." Kate says, "Want to quiz me? I'm just full of fun facts. For instance, I learned that your friend has been in L.A. before -- did you know that? Yeah, at least twice. Once in 1928, and again in 1963." Angel cuts to the chase and asks if Kate believes him. She admits that she does, and then calls him "Angelus." "I looked it up. It's all right there. The demon with the face of an angel. A particularly brutal bastard by all accounts. Oh, and no, you can't come in." Angel starts his patented apologetic speech, but Kate is having none of it. "All of this, what's happening now, is really because of you. You made him, didn't you?" Angel whines, "Let me help end it, please." "Please," Kate repeats. "Now there's a word I imagine you heard quite a lot in your time. 'Please.' 'No.' 'Don't.' Thanks for the offer, but I don't need your help. I know what to do. Drive a stake right through the son-of-a-bitch's heart. And when that happens, I suggest you don't be [sic] there. Because the next time we meet, I'll do the same to you." And then she slams the door. I knew I liked her for a reason.

Cordy, who has apparently chosen to dress up as Pocahontas with a lace-up top and turquoise necklaces, types away at the computer while Angel lurks behind her. She pulls up files about Penn's killings in the 1920s, when he was tracked to an apartment building, but fled the scene when the authorities arrived. Wesley, looking at some old newspapers, says that the same thing happened in 1963. Comparing photos, even Cordelia notices that Penn was living in the same building both times. "Good old predictable Penn," chuckles Angel. They are so lucky to have antagonists who are even more clueless than they are.

Wesley bursts into Penn's apartment and turns to invite Angel in. Angel explains, "That's only for humans. Breaking and entering another vampire's lair isn't a problem." They covered that before, but I guess they're happy to be able to explain anything that happens on this show, so I can't blame them for repeating it. Angel notes that Penn isn't home, and sorts through the papers on Penn's desk. He finds photos of school buses, and maps with bus routes marked. "He's finally changing his act," says Angel.
