Monster of the Week: 

  • Vigories of Oden Tal: The Vigories of Oden Tal are a race of extradimensional beings (possibly demons) who operate under a strict patriarchal society where women are subjugated due to the powers that they wield if not curbed before they can develop them. The women have the ability to channel an energy through the Ko, a ridge on the woman's upperback. This energy is much like fire and burns to the touch.


  • Running Joke: Angel's inability to use the cell phone given to him by Cordelia becomes a running joke in the series.


  • Wesley: Although he's been hanging around Angel's place of business for the past few episodes, he's officially hired onto Angel Investigations in this episode.
  • Angel: Angel gets a cell phone in this episode, but because he's 200 years old, he struggles with it. Many laughs are had by all.


For over a century, the vampire, Angelus, blazed a swath of murder and mayhem across Europe, until a gypsy curse restored his soul. His guilt and remorse eventually led him to Los Angeles where he battles evil and helps the helpless in his neverending quest for redemption.
