Body Count

  1. Two vampires, dusted by Angel.
  2. Russ, dusted by Doyle.

Goofs--Doyle says he and Harriet got married when he was 20. Later, Harriet says that Doyle got his teaching credentials before they met. Unless Doyle is a genius, which we've got no reason to believe, there is no way he would have his teaching credentials at the age of 20. Getting teaching credentials is at minimum a 4 year program.

  • Angel has a trickle of blood on his left temple that disappears when he changes to his vampire face before going back into the restaurant to save Doyle.
  •  At the beginning of the episode when Cordelia leaves with Pierce, she says, "Don't mind him". But her lips don't match the words.
