- Wolfram & Hart: Lilah continues to attempt to wrangle Wesley into becoming an employee of Wolfram & Hart by setting up Justine to be killed in a club full of vampires. He doesn't fall for it and leaves shortly after Angel and Connor break up the fight.
- Cordelia: Cordelia's demonic power manifests itself once again and disintegrates the knife Connor threatened her with and cleanses his soul of the hell dimension that he was trapped in.
- Holtz: Holtz appears to have moved past his desire for vengeance from the speech he delivered to Angel and the letter that was meant for Connor. However, the fact that he had Justine kill him with two puncture wounds in the neck seems to say differently.
