At the police station, Kate finishes some filing and turns around to see Angel lurking in the doorway. She asks what's up, and he says, "It's about that demon from this morning..." Kate pulls him into the room and closes the door, saying, "If you insist on talking about this stuff, could you please not say that word? It makes me, it makes me, just, I don't know, uncomfortable. Just say, 'Evil Thing,' okay?" Angel agrees, and explains, "It's just that the, uh, Evil Thing wasn't an evil thing." Kate is confused. Angel tries again: "Well, it was an Evil Thing, in terms of that word, it wasn't an evil Evil Thing." "There are not-evil Evil Things?" Kate asks, wondering if she's accidentally fallen into a Monty Python sketch. Angel looks hurt, and says that there are. Kate changes topics by asking how Angel got there during daylight hours, and Angel reminds her about the sewer systems. He asks her for a list of the passengers on the train, to try and figure out what could have caused the incident. Kate says, "There was nothing on the train; we searched it." Angel repeats that he wants to investigate the passengers, "I think we should start with that delivery guy, the man who pulled the emergency brake." Kate asks if the Kwaini is still dead, and Angel admits that it is. Kate says, "Good. You told me to forget about it; I'd like to." Angel keeps protesting, and Kate finally says, "There's nothing here. Your not-evil Evil Thing was just evil, okay? Now can't we just leave it at that?" Angel pouts us right into a blipvert.
Angel sits in his car, parked outside of the offices of Blue Circle Delivery Service as he chats with Wesley on his cell phone. Wesley says, "You can hardly blame her for being skittish on the topic." Angel replies, "I suppose so, I don't know. Ever since she ran me through with a two-by-four, things have been different." As he treks through the subway tunnels, Wesley jabbers about how people need "a period of adjustment" to accept the "dark forces all around us." Wesley starts to go on about how, "Women in particular --" when Cordy shouts, "Found it!" She kneels on the ground by the dead demon and waves her hacksaw triumphantly. Hee hee hee! Wesley nervously finishes his sentence with"--struggle with it," as Cordy prepares to carve up some Kwaini. Angel keeps talking, worried that Kate will be so busy "struggling with the big picture, she'll miss the details." Angel confirms that Wesley will run "the tests," and hangs up. Then he watches as the Blue Circle delivery guy shows up and starts talking on his own cell phone. The delivery guy gets into his van and, frankly, words cannot describe the excitement that fills me during the powerful "Van Backing Up" scene. He drives away, and Angel moves out in lukewarm pursuit. Cut to the van parked in front of an apartment building. I just wish we'd gotten to see the "Parallel Parking" scene, but apparently the WB censors felt it was too intense for this timeslot. Incidentally, I think this is the same building they use for the exteriors of Cordy's apartment, and the apartment that Apt Pupil-boy lived in. Wouldn't it be funny if they all lived in the same building? Inside, Angel hides behind a corner and watches as the delivery guy knocks on an apartment door. The door is answered by... Mr. Lockley! They converse inaudibly for a moment, then Mr. Lockley hands the guy a plain brown package and slams the door.
