Cordy presumably takes to her bed while everyone else gathers in the living room. Angel wants to know why this is happening. Gunn makes a totally out-of-character remark that makes him look stupid and insensitive and so, in protest, I refuse to recap it. Nyah. Wesley repeats Cordelia's question about why The Powers That Be would do this. Fred is suddenly given a purpose: to inspire particularly ludicrous ideas which are necessary to the plot. Swell. She says that maybe they should ask TPTB, because everything is really energy, including the visions, so all they have to do is "figure out the frequency and trace the calls." Bet it turns out that they're coming from inside the house. The best part is that, after Fred makes this bizarre suggestion, Wesley says, "Yes...of course!" Oh, come on. It looks as though they're still pretending that Wesley's in charge: he tells Gunn and Fred to go retrieve some books from the Hyperion, and instructs Angel to retrieve the key from the demon Cordy saw. Angel doesn't want to leave Cordy, but Wesley insists that he has an idea. Doesn't he mean "Fred had an idea"? Honestly, though, this might have been a little easier to take if Wesley had said, "Fred's deranged babbling gave me an idea that might actually work."
The Angelmobile drives down a blipvert to the demon's location. Well, that sure was easy to find. He marches in, sword in hand, and declares, "I want the key and I want it now." A nervous guy in glasses asks which key he's looking for, and of course it's a key shop. I have a sudden overwhelming urge to play "Faxanadu." Angel look around at all the keys and sighs, then pulls out a sketch of the key that Cordy made. Hey, Angel's shirt is still slashed from the fight with the Chinese couple! Continuity, woo. The storekeeper looks at the drawing and says that it'll just be a minute, and reaches over to press a silent alarm. The characters in this episode say "just a minute" an awful lot. The boil-faced demon from Cordy's vision drops down from the ceiling. Swordplay begins.
Cut to the Hyperion's courtyard as Gunn and Fred return to the hotel. Oh! Okay, Cordelia's place must be within walking distance, because Angel took the car. Excellent, that's one less thing for me to worry about. Until it's contradicted five episodes from now. Fred tells Gunn that she knows how disappointed he must be that he's not fighting demons with Angel instead of taking her home. Gunn charms my socks off as he agrees, "Why would I want to walk with a cute young woman on a beautiful night when I could be out hackin' and slaying an ugly boil-covered demon-monster, and gettin' myself killed?" Fred cluelessly apologizes again, and then there's a joke about how she's jumpy and Gunn isn't, at which point Gunn jumps upon finding a guy wearing a gas mask inside the hotel. The guy says, "Sure Kill Exterminators -- you can't come in. We're fumigating." Gunn thinks this is a bit odd, because if they can't have crossovers with UPN, how come they can do in-jokey references to a disintegrating Fox show? He sends Fred in for Wesley's books and tells the exterminator, "You've got thirty seconds to show me a work order before I start doing some exterminatin' my damn self." Not the smoothest line, but Gunn's the only character I respect, so let me enjoy the fact that he got more than two lines of dialogue in this episode.
