Monster of the Week:
- Billy Blim: Billy has an ability that allows him to activate a primal misogyny in men that he comes in contact with. Additionally, he can temporarily supercharge his strength and power by absorbing energy from the ground into his hands. Although it is clear that he has some kind of demonic origin, what that exact lineage is was not expressed in this episode.
- Lilah: Even if it was just for her own satisfaction, Lilah temporarilly aligns herself with Angel Investigations when she kills Billy.
- Wesley and Fred: Wesley's crush on Fred is revealed in this episode, but it's unlikely that it will go anywhere anytime soon considering that he chased her with an axe for the majority of the episode.
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.
