Body Count:

  • 2 vampires gang, slayed by Gunn
  • 1 vampire, slayed by Fred


  • Wolfram & Hart: Beyond their international firms, Wolfram & Hart also apparently has branches in other dimensions. They remain one step ahead of Sahjhan and don't officially help him because of a standing policy to let Angel live until his death is useful. Lilah does, however, help him off the record.
  • The Prophecy: In an attempt to figure out if Angel will really kill his son, Wesley spoke to the Loa, which said that Angel will kill his son after a great earthquake, followed by fire, followed by blood staining the sky. All of these occurred in this episode.


  1. Holtz: Holtz's army has grown to about a dozen people. He has used one of them to set up Angel's employees, which tipped them off to the army that he is amassing.


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.
