Angel Episode Guide
Season Five; Episode Six: "The
Cautionary Tale of Numero Cinco" ByCathy
(This is a short recap; we hope to have a longer, more detailed summary
Aired: November 5, 2003
Two security guards are brutally murdered by an
Angel is signing legal papers with his blood; demon
lore requests it. Gunn loves the good they do at Wolfram & Hart
though he does believe they could get a little dirty and need a
little action. Angel feels disconnected.
Wesley enters the office and tells them three dead
bodies have been found with their hearts cut out. The Mail guy in a
wrestler’s mask ignores Angel when he tries to get his attention to
give him an envelope. When Angel grabs him by the shoulder mail guy
hurls Angel through a glass wall. The whole truth of the incident
gets out of hand in just a short amount of time. Angel beat up an
innocent old man they call Number 5.
Another body is found at an All Souls Mass, the
Mexican Day of the Dead. Gunn, Wesley, Spike and Angel take off in
the convertible to find the killer. Angel stops the car abruptly he
can smell blood. They discover a fresh dead body with the heart
removed; they know the assailant can’t be far. The men find the
demon, they fight but nothing seems to bring him down. He
Fred tells Spike he is a champion. He saved the
world, sacrificed himself and closed hell mouth. He says he just
stood there as the fire engulfed him, that wasn’t heroic but she
reminds him that he saved her and he takes pride in that.
Wesley and his team are researching what kind of
demon they are looking for. Spike asks Wes about the Shanshu’s
Prophesy. A vampire with a soul plays a major role in an apocalyptic
battle will be able to live again. Spike wonders if this could be
about him but Wes assures him it’s not. Spike reveals to Wes that
Angel doesn’t believe in the prophecy anymore.
The demon they are looking for is an Aztec Demon
called Tezcatcatl who appears every 50 years and kills many. The
last time he made an appearance brothers that were champions of
their time defeated him. One brother is still alive and he is none
other then the mail guy Number 5.
Angel visits him at his apartment and again he
attacks Angel. Angel fights back; he needs Number 5’s help to know
how he and his brothers defeated the Aztec Demon.
We flashback to the five brothers in a wrestling
match. All loved them. They never lost, never quit, never
compromised. As Number 5 speaks of he and his brothers “helping the
helpless’ Angel compares them to he and the gang.
After his brothers deaths Number 5 falls into
self-pity and takes a job with Wolfram and Hart.
The Aztec Demon attacks Angel. It stabs Angel but
then pauses and removes it’s dagger and leaves. Back at the office
Angel reveals to Gunn and Wes that he is insulted that the demon did
not want his heart. Gunn says who would want his ‘dried up’ heart.
Wes says it is for meat not metaphor but Angel believes that it is
because he is not heroic enough. Wesley then tells him that his
heart isn’t in his work and he’s lost hope. Wes is worried about
Fred’s research uncovers that the heart and blood of
a hero makes the Aztec Demon invulnerable. Gunn learns at one time
the demon made a mystic deal with W&H. It was cursed into returning
every 50 years, which made it convenient for it to look for a
talisman that would make it powerful again.
Angel remembers seeing the talisman at Number 5’s
apartment. He arrives there to find Number 5 and the talisman gone.
Angel finds him at a graveyard. Number 5 has summoned the Aztec
demon and he comes. Number 5 says he has swallowed the talisman and
wants the demon to cut it out of him. The three fight and Number 5
is stabbed. His four brothers rise from their grave and they fight
the demon. They ‘pin’ the demon and Angel stabs him.
Number 5 tells Angel the talisman was really in a
coffee thermos. He dies and his brothers take him and they
Angel returns to W&H and gives Wesley the talisman
for safekeeping. He tells the gang Number 5 died a hero.
Angel retires to his office to read the Shanshu’s
Prophesy, the English translation.
“The geriatric community will be sorting their nappies when they
hear you’re on the case. Bravo.” Spike to Angel.
“Always was a bit of a drama queen.” Spike about Angel.
“Just trying to put as much distance between myself and General
Grumpy Pants as my ghost leash allows.” Spike.
“Tall, dark and dreary.” Spike describing Angel.
Angel to Wrestling brothers “Were trying to kill it not pin it.”
After they ‘pin’ the demon. “Okay pinning works.”
