Angel Episode Guide
Season Five; Episode Five: "Life of
the Party" ByCathy
(This is a short recap; we hope to have a longer, more detailed summary
Aired: October 29, 2003
Lorne is burning the candles at both ends. He is stressed over his
regular duties and trying to get a Halloween party together. Rubbing
his forehead in front of his mirror Lorne’s reflection speaks to
him. He smashes the mirror and his reflection begins to sing. Lorne
exits his office also belting out a tune.
Angel misses a meeting with Eve. She says he bottles his feelings
and he needs a release. His problem is the baddies he’s been trying
to bust are now his clients.
Everyone is busy with their jobs and not interested in going to
Lorne’s ‘Monster Mash’. Angel thinks the party will become an out of
control blood bath. He is told the party is more of a moral thing
for the employees that think Angel sucks and are afraid of being
axed in more ways than one.
Lorne and Angel convince the Arch Duke, a client to come to the
party. If he came then other important clients and potentials will
follow. The Arch Duke arrives with his entourage properly dressed
with weapons. They believe their invite is a trap.
Lorne encourages the gang to enjoy the party. He tells wallflowers
Wesley and Fred that they need to ‘get drunk.’ He tells Spike to ‘be
positive’ and someone is peeing all over the place. While Eve and
Angel are having an argument Lorne interrupts them and says that he
could cut their sexual tension with a knife, “Get a room.” Eve and
Angel hurry away and begin to make out.
Lorne reveals to Gunn that he has had his sleep removed to get more
time for work and he loves it, Gunn thinks that is fantastic.
Someone kills one of the Arch Duke’s men in the bathroom.
Wes and Fred feel drunk but Fred isn’t drinking and Wes hasn’t even
finished one beer. They know that something is weird and after
talking to Gunn who is the one peeing and Spike who is grooving to
the tunes, something is wrong.
The gang search for Angel and find him in his office having sex with
Eve. They become aware that they are doing what Lorne has told them
to do. Gunn remembers that Lorne told him to ‘stake out his
territory’. They figure out it’s happening because Lorne had his
sleep removed and because he is an Empath demon that can read
destinies he is now writing them.
While searching for Lorne’s sleep Wesley reveals to Fred that he
would like more then her friendship but Fred misinterprets him and
confides in him that she likes Knox.
The Arch Duke and his entourage barge into Angel's office, who is
still having sex with Eve and threatens to execute Angel; there are
more dead. They re-enter the party where the ‘Hulk’ no excuse me a
large bulking Lorne leaps into the crowd. It is his subconscious
that has manifested and taken on a life of it’s own. Many take a
stab at bringing Lorne’s subconscious down but in the end it is Fred
who shoots the sleep back into Lorne that makes his subconscious
disappear. Lorne falls into a deep sleep.
Fred has a drink with Knox, which Wesley happens to see.
It is deduced that Lorne’s subconscious was fighting what Lorne
battles within. Angel worries that Wolfram and Hart are trying to
