Monster of the Week: 

  • Penn: Penn is a Puritan turned vampire sired by Angelus during the late 1700s or possibly early 1800s. Angel taught Penn how to kill and Penn adopted Angelus' methods as his own. He killed his family and left Angelus' mark and continued to do so in the 1920s and 1960s using the same methods and types of people. He's exceedingly predictable because he goes to the same places and kills the same people each time.

Characters: 

  • Angel: In the late 1700s, Angel used a cross to mark his victims. During this time period, he sired Penn, who took up the tradition.
  • Kate: Kate discovers Angel's secret, as well as the fact that vampires are real. After the initial shock, she starts to research about vampires and breaks off her professional relationship with Angel. However, she doesn't kill him, so it's presumed that she may just need time to accept his past.
