(Season Premier) ByCathy
(This is a short recap; we hope to have a longer, more detailed summary
Aired October 1, 2003
Angel standing on a rooftop hears screaming
and with super hero action he swoops down, fights and stakes the vampire
attacker and saves the girl. Suddenly an operation team “backup” and other
employees from Wolfram & Hart appear. Someone’s taking a statement from the
victim and cameras are flashing. Angel is told not to take any actions until
W&H is notified. The victim thinks this is all a publicity stunt.
The gang is setting into their new jobs and offices. Though Wesley
is second guessing his decision, Lorne loves it.
Angel walks into his office, his usual double door entrance and
finds an attractive leggy women sitting upon his desk. She
introduces herself as Eve, a liaison between Angel and the senior
partners. She informs Angel that his number one job is to keep the
Angel and the gang spend long hours going through the client’s
files. They don’t know where to begin their good deeds and they are
still questioning if they are doing the right thing. Can they make a
Eve is in Gunn’s office and questions his loyalty to the firm. She
hands him a card and tells him he’ll become a new man.
Angel at his desk throws aside an envelope addressed to him. He is
having difficulty with his telephone pressing several buttons all to
find his secretary and request a cup of coffee. In walks Harmony his
new secretary or assistant, as she would like to be called. Angel
asks why shouldn’t he just kill her. Harmony’s reply, she’s just a
single undead girl, their (W&H) evil they don’t judge and the
medical and dental (which is important) is good. Plus she types like
a super hero and they have the same hours. Wes arrives in the office
and informs Angel that he chose Harmony himself because she was a
familiar face. Angel comments he didn’t think Wesley would turn evil
There is a mention of Cordelia when Harmony asks about her. She is
told Cordy is in a coma, Harmony is sad for about ten seconds.
Their first client is Corbin Fries who’s involved with guns, drugs
etc. He’s in trial and about to lose. He says if the firm doesn’t
help him he’s going to ‘drop the bomb’ which means ‘bye bye
California’. All Fries has to do is say ‘the word’ and it’s a done
deal. The gang need to find out what this ‘bomb is’.
The W&H staff is being screened by singing for Lorne.
Angel needing to do his own investigating goes to the firms garage
and gets excited over finding an array of sports cars. “Their
beautiful” he says. He’s approached by Agent Hauser and his
operation team, they aren’t happy that Angel is not using them to do
Angel visits a guy named Spanky that did some work for Fries. Angel
beats out of him that he made a mystical container that could holds
a virus, which is in Fries own son Matthew.
Angel is devastated thinking of his own son Connor. Eve speaks of
Connor reminding us that Angel is the only one that will ever
remember him and he’s not to take other jobs so personally. Angel
angrily insists that she is not to let Connors name pass her lips
Gunn goes to the address on the card and ends up in a lab. He is
hooked up to a machine. It turns out to be a mind enhancer. Gunn
appears in court suited up and speaking great knowledge of the law.
He gets Fries a mistrial after he reveals that the judge had stock
connections to Fries Company.
Fred, who was a little timid of being a boss, takes charge to get
her team working harder in finding an antidote for the virus.
Agent Hauser and his team head to Matthew’s school to ‘take him
out’. Angel beats them there in his company helicopter and clears
out the school. Angel can’t fire Hauser because of ‘tradition’. They
shoot at Angel but Angel kicks their ass and kills Hauser.
Back at the office Wes and Fred say they are decoding the mystical
container. The gang still agree that they have to change things in
the firm and not just help evil. Angel rips open the pre- mentioned
envelope and ‘the amulet’ falls out. In a tornado like fury a burnt
and then human like Spike appears.
