Body Count:

  • Immortal's Lackey,Snapped Neck by Angelus in Dungeon

Monster of the Week: 

  • The Immortal: Although he does not appear in any scenes of this episode, it can be inferred from the descriptions of him that he is a highly diplomatic man who Angel only casts as his archenemy because he knows that the Immortal is so much more capable than he is. The Immortal's only powers seem to be his immortality, but he has a legion of followers who do his other work for him.

Happenings:

  • Wolfram & Hart: Although it has been mentioned in the past that Wolfram & Hart has offices in all major cities and dimensions, this is the first time that any of them are seen. Angel and Spike go to the Rome branch and everything is more or less the same.

Characters:

  1. Illyria: Illyria confirms that she could communicate with plants, as mentioned by Spike in previous episodes. She calls it "the song of the Green," which may be a reference to the mystical "Green" life force in the DC Comics series Swamp Thing. She also retains the ability to alter her physical form, in this episode she takes on Fred's appearance.
