(This is a short recap; we hope to have a longer, more detailed summary
Aired October 10, 2003
are flashbacked to Sunnydale, California nineteen days earlier (the
last episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Spike and Buffy share a
moment as the world crumbles around them. He tells her to save the
other as he wearing the amulet saves the world.
In Angel’s office the gang deal with
the return of Spike. Spike is not happy about seeing Angel he turns
vamp face and runs to Angel for an attack but finds himself running
right through him. Bugger!
Spike is a ghost. It’s revealed that
Buffy is okay and living in Europe. Spike wants to see her but Angel
says no way. Lots of questions of why Spike has returned but no one
has the answers. Lorne thinks the whole Buffy, Spike and Angel
triangle would make a good movie.
No ectoplasm is detected on Spike,
which is what is supposed to make ghost visible. Fred detects brain
wave activity and he’s radiating heat, which in the presences of a
ghost is usually cold. They know he’s connected to the amulet and he
can disappear but he doesn’t know where he goes.
Angel didn’t tell the gang exactly how
Spike helped to save the world and that he has a soul. Spike says
this is all Angel’s fault because he brought the amulet to Sunnydale
and he chickened out and left the women he loved, this state he’s in
should be him.
Spike appears where ever he wants
(through the whole episode). Harmony tries to tell Angel that he has
a three o’clock appointment but he and Spike are in an argument.
Angel fights a beast that stepped out of the elevator unfortunately
it was his 3 o’clock. They were meeting for negotiations so the
beast would stop eating baby heads.
A lawyer named Novak comes to Angel
because Angel has closed the grave digging department and that means
they can’t supply a client Magnus Hainsley fresh corpses. He sends
Novak to tell him they aren’t taking care of him anymore.
Angel knows he was the one that was
supposed to wear the amulet. He’s trying to figure out what Wolfram
& Hart are up to. Spike’s back after saying he was going to leave
town. It seems he can’t, he is bound to W&H because of the amulet.
Novak returns in three buckets.
Hainsley is a necromancer. He charges
demon for putting their essences inside fresh dead bodies. Gunn
knows how to bring him down. Angel with his tag along Spike go to
his mansion and find a show room of dead bodies displayed like they
are at a party. The butler tries to kill Angel but Angel finishes
him off with a spoon.
Hainsley has stronger powers over
Angel but Angel fought back with the I.R.S. Hainsley offers Spike a
deal. He can give him back what he lost but he has to do something
Spike over hears Angel, Wesley and
Fred talking about him. The only way for Spike to stop being a ghost
is to give him eternal rest, which is the merciful thing to do.
Amulet is protected but the magic doesn’t hold up on halo ground
like a graveyard. It has to be destroyed.
A shirtless Angel goes to bed. Spike
is in his room and tells him what Hanesley had to offer. Spike says
he can’t live being useless and nothing and he wants it to end. They
go to a graveyard. When Angel tries to hit the amulet and he hits
himself. Hanesley appears and lifts Angel with his powers and throws
him against a tombstone. It looks like Spike is taking Hainsley
Angel is taken back to Hainsley’s
mansion where Spike will be transferred into Angel’s body and then
Spike will return to the office as Angel and fix Hainsley’s little
problems. Spike enters Hainsley instead and he and Angel fight.
Angel decapitates Hainsley with a tray.
Angel reveals to Wesley that Spike had
come up with the plan to get Hainsley.
Spike goes to Fred. He feels like he
is being pulled down to hell every time he does his little
disappearing act. It’s not the place hero’s go to and he’s
terrified. He asks her for help.
“You think I’m hot do you?” Spike to
Fred when she says he’s radiating heat.
“Captain forehead.” Spike calls Angel.
“Your not in the world Casper.” Angel
“Slayer loving freak.” Harmony
“Oh I’m sorry. I didn’t care.” Spike
interrupting Angel and Wesley.
“Knowing you are going to haunt me
till the end of time, it’s a dream come true.” Angel
“I knew you’d pick the Viper, so
bloody predictable.” Spike to Angel.
“I’m his date.” Spike added comment
when Angel introduces himself to the butler.
“I’m not here to back him up, I’m just
here to haunt him.” Spike.
“You’ve gone all Patrick Swayze.”
Harmony to Spike.
Harmony says, “I guess a leopard can’t
change its stripes.” Spike replies “Spots you dink, leopards have
spots.” Harmony’s retorts. “Excuse me Mr. Brainy thank you so much
for sharing. Wow what a break through.”
“Relax beef cake I didn’t come for a
fight.” Spike to Angel.
