On the sub, Lawson checks his gun and tries to reassure the remaining crew. They've got two days of air, and they can't control the sub from where they are. One soldier adds, "That's assuming that they don't figure out how to get through that hatch." The vampires can't figure out how to open a hatch? Wow. These are some dumb vampires. As we shall see. There's also a captured Nazi aboard, and one of the Americans demands to know what the Germans were transporting. The Nazi starts speaking in German, and is interrupted by a distant scream. As the wails for help continue, Lawson makes for the hatch, but is stopped by another soldier named Spinelli. Lawson tries to go forward, Spinelli aims a gun at Lawson, and the boring standoff is interrupted by a clang as something hits the sub. I start hoping that they will go for yet another twist on the old no-reflections gag and have someone look out through the periscope, but alas, they're in the wrong part of the sub for that. The clangs continue over the ship, and Lawson decides that it's something moving toward the torpedo room. They all move through the sub. Clang, clang. Tense, tense. Not, not. We know it's Angel. We know Lawson's going to be vamped. We know way too much already, is my point, which makes all the attempts at suspense kind of lame. They listen as Angel climbs in through the torpedo tubes and then starts tapping SOS in Morse code. With guns drawn, the soldiers open the tube, and Angel pokes his giant head out at them.
Wesley walks down a hall at Wolfram & Hart and opens his office door. Inside, he finds Fred tied to his chair and gagged. "Fred, at last! But how did you know..." he fails to say. Apparently, the sight of his fantasy coming true makes Wesley's brain stop working completely, since he immediately walks into the room and gets clobbered by Lawson, who was hiding behind the door.
On the sub, Lawson aims his gun at Angel and demands to know how he got down there without a dive suit. Angel ignores Lawson and asks for Captain Franklin, only to be told that Franklin is dead. Lawson says that he's in charge. Angel issues order "Charlie Abel Oboe Victor," and says the magic verification word is "Nautilus." The soldiers lower their guns, and Angel grumps, "Somebody wanna get these things off me?" And the camera pans down so that for a second Johanna thinks Angel meant his pants, but then we see that there are manacles and chains looped around his feet.
Spinelli ("the angry one") and Hodge ("the nervous one") walk through the sub, discussing Angel. Hodge figures that Angel is "some kind of super-soldier, like Steve Rogers or Captain America." Spinelli snaps that Steve Rogers is Captain America. Comedy! Or something.
