Cut to Lindsey saying, "They don't have a clue what's happening, do they?" Like confusing the MoG is a big accomplishment. The camera spins counter-clockwise until we see that he's lying in bed, talking to Eve, who's perched on top of him and drooling on his neck. Lindsey asks if she's sure the MoG aren't checking on Angel. Eve says that they're busy with her block o' runes. She starts to reach for someting on the nightstand, but Lindsey pulls her back and she simpers, "Fine. Let's talk more." She asks how Spicule's coming along, and Lindsey says, "He hasn't sewn a big red 'S' on his chest yet, but he's getting there." He adds, "We keep building him up, and we tear Angel down. Pretty soon the Senior Partners are gonna start thinking they're backing the wrong horse." Hm. Interesting. I do enjoy the fact that I could accept it if it turns out that Lindsey is good, evil, or indifferent and just out to give Angel a bad time. Eve pauses in her teenage-seductress flailings to smirk, "Unless they find out we're fixing the race." Lindsey sits up suddenly and says he's dead if that happens. Eve reassures him, and they trade exposition about the fact that the markings covering Lindsey are "the only thing keeping [him] off Wolfram & Hart's radar." Eve asks if Lindsey's going to give her what she wants, and I guess it's supposed to be a single entendre, but it's hard even to interpret anything she says sexually because she's so very bland. Lindsey throws Eve onto her back and says, "Good girls always get what they want." He starts sucking on her neck, in a non-vamp way, and Eve turns and reaches out toward a mysterious box on the nightstand. "This is gonna be fun," she sighs.
Wesley and Gunn return to Wolfram & Hart, and Fred hurries to greet them. She's wearing a dress with a red top and a deep brown skirt, with black trim. It's actually a nice cut and suits her, but the colors make her look like a Vegas cocktail waitress. It's definitely an improvement, though. I don't know why I'm so focused on her clothes. Except that what she's wearing is usually more interesting than what she's saying. Fred asks what Spicule had to say, and Gunn answers, "Oh, you know. Stuff." Wesley sniffs that they aren't good enough for Spicule, and Gunn adds, "Thinks we sold out." Fred says that they're trying to change the system from within. Gunn notes, "When you say it out loud, it sounds really naïve." Fred asks if they should tell Angel, but Gunn doesn't think Angel will be happy about the news. This leads Fred to wonder if anyone's heard from Angel.
