As Lilah reads, her very own annoying pest appears in the form of Gavin. He asks if she got the email, and Lilah notes that Gavin shouldn't even know about it. Gavin replies, "There must have been a glitch in the server." He sits on the edge of the desk as he notes that the thaumogenesis is a result of the spell Lilah helped Angel perform. Lilah snarks, "Do you have a point, or are you just waxing my desk with your ass for fun?" Gavin says that whatever's going on must be dangerous. Lilah perks up at the thought that Angel might get killed, then realizes that, technically, Wolfram & Hart wants to keep Angel alive. Gavin notes that Linwood's on vacation and heads for the door with a perky "bye!" A stunned Lilah asks, "I'm supposed to go in there and save Angel?" Y'know, I could swear that, at some point last season, I mentioned in a recap that Johanna and I had discussed how funny it would be if Lilah and Lindsey had to run around protecting Angel because Wolfram & Hart wants him to stay alive. But now I can't find any mention of it. Maybe it was in the forums. I guess you'll just have to believe me when I say: hey! I had this same idea! And it's a good idea, too. So it's sort of a shame they just use it for filler, but I'll take what I can get.
Cordy and Groo stroll down a hall. Cordy moans that Angel must be guilt-ridden that his spell led to a man's death. Heh. Good to know her mind-reading skills are back to their customary levels. Groo mutters that Angel is Cordy's priority, and when she asks what he means, he mentions her conversation with Fred: "You said earlier that Angel's feelings were your only concern. He was all that matters." Cordy stops short and assures Groo that Angel is her work priority, but Groo is her "other stuff priority." It would be more convincing if she had a better name for that. She also calls him "Grooey," but I'm just going to let that go. Groo stares at her and lifts his axe, and Cordy gets nervous, but of course Groo is just taking aim at the crawdad on the wall behind her head. He misses it, and it jumps into a mail chute and vanishes. As they start to chase after it, they run into Angel and Cary. "We saw it!" everyone shouts. And then they make "uh oh" faces.
