Arc Advancement


  • Angel's Kid: The horrible lovechild of Angel and Darla may not be as evil as the prophecy may have previously indicated. Not only is it not a vampire (it has a heartbeat), but it also has a soul.
  • Caritas: After his club was shot up by Gunn's old crew in a previous episode, Lorne is finally getting around to reopening the club. In this episode, he's redecorating and having a new protection spell (which works on both humans and demons) cast.


  • Holtz: Angel's nemesis Holtz has been resurrected by a demon. Considering how much trouble he gave Angel and Darla in the past, he'll likely continue this trend.


  • 1x12 - Expecting: Cordelia was impregnated by a man acting as a proxy for a demon. After sleeping with a man she met with a party, she found that she was several months pregnant overnight.
Cordelia: I was pregnant once. I was out to here overnight! Mystical thing.
  • 1x03 - That Old Gang of Mine: Cordelia met the furies when she was sent to ask them to remove the sanctuary spell from Caritas. She eventually realized that the debt Angel owes them isn't one that could be paid with money and is one that she "isn't equipped" for.
Cordelia: And here we have three more of Angel's chippies. You girls are on the pill I hope.

  • Fred: Who's Darla?
    Gunn: Angel's old flame from way back.
    Fred: Not the one who died?

    Fred: D'y'all have a chart or something?
    Gunn: In the files. I'll get it for you later.
