(This is a short recap; we hope to have a longer, more detailed summary
Aired: January 14, 2004
begin with an advertisement for Wolfram & Hart. There are
changes at W&H with the new CEO. They want to work with you;
you're part of the family. It includes the slogan,. "If you
donít kill, we donít kill." Angel has a zero tolerance rule on
murdering innocent people and strictly upholds it.
So we begin the day (or
two) in the life of Harmony. Sheís like any other typical
girl. She awakes with an alarm, showers, brushes her (vamp)
teeth, picks out a stylist outfit and goes to work.
Unfortunately, she doesnít fit in and is ignored by neighbors and
co-workers. Harmony is a diligent secretary. She brings
Angel his hot cup of blood, keeps him up to date on his
appointments, and cleans up severed heads. Though she works
hard for Angel, she feels unappreciated
W&H do routine checks on
staff to make sure they have no human blood in their bloodstreams.
Spike has been gone for
days and is planning on leaving for Europe, now that heís all
corporeal. Though the gang donít think itís a good idea, with
the Shanshu Prophesy still going on, Spike makes a note of pointing
out that he has someone waiting for him. "Any message for
Buffy?" Spike asks Angel. "Tell her youíre a moron,"
Though he thanks Fred for
believing in him, he has no goodbyes for Harmony.
Angel and the gang are
preparing for a demon summit meeting. Angel is worried that
something may go wrong. It is very important that they learn
the manners and customs of these particular demons. to keep anyone
from getting slaughtered. Gunn is fluent in several demon
languages, so he will do the talking.
Harmony has been trying to
help out as well. She worked on the catering and read about
the demons customs. The gang is just expecting lunch from her.
Angel is none too happy when he finds a live camel in the lobby.
Itís a delicacy to the demons, Harmony explains. Harmony is
trying so hard, but she feels everyone hates her. Fred says
she doesnít hate her, and to Fred's surprise, she is asked to go out
for drinks with Harmony.
The girls bond, discussing
Fredís love triangle with Knox and Wes. Harmony reveals that
she hasnít been popular since she was turned into a vampire at her
high school graduation. Fred says she needs to learn to
connect with people and talks her into talking to a guy at the bar.
Harmony wakes in the
morning with the guy from the bar but finds that he has been bitten
in the neck and is dead--oops! She disposes of the body at her
apartment building dumpster. She doesnít remember bringing him
home, and since Fred made her talk to the guy, it must be her fault.
Harmony, while getting
Angel his cup of blood, drinks heartily from his thermos.
Problem is, for some reason, she is now craving human blood.
She overhears Angel
speaking to a detective (apparently W&H own them) about a body that
was found with vampire bites. There was a W&H card found on
The gang discuss whether
the summit meeting should be cancelled until the murderer is found.
The demons (who refer to Angel as "whore man") are superstitious and
may believe that this is some kind of omen.
Fred examines the body.
Harmony goes to the lab to pry for info, but Fred thinks Angel has
sent Harmony to keep an eye on her. Fred discovers that the
victim was bitten on the right side by a female vamp.
Harmony realizes that she
couldnít have bitten the guy because she is a left biter, but before
she can do anything about it, she has her finger pricked and the
test reveals that she has human blood in her system. She
knocks out the blood tester and throws him in the closet.
Lorne also finds out too much and is thrown in the closet.
Harmony knows that she has been set up; she has been clean for 8
months, so someone must have spiked her thermos with human blood.
She tries to talk to Fred, but she wants to tell Angel, so she, too,
ends up in the closet. Harmony apologizes and says she so owes
Harmony freaks out when she
realizes that a fellow vampire co-worker has set her up. The
woman is jealous of Harmony for getting the job as Angelís
secretary. She plans to kill Harmony and take her job. The two
vampires fight; Harmony drags the co-worker to the meeting to
confess to Angel, but she ends up spiking her instead. The
demons are pleased that there has been a blood sacrifice, but Angel
is not, even though she saved the summit meeting. Harmony
fears she will be fired, but Angel just tells her to get them some
Harmony is back at the bar,
annoyed that Angel still doesn't appreciate her and that no on cares
about her. Spike comes in; he didnít leave after all.
He tells her that didnít go because he didnít feel he could top his
exit of saving the world and all. He just couldnít show up on
a cruise ship because then the grand finale wouldnít matter
(probably he is afraid Buffy doesn't really love him). He
cheers Harmony up by making her feel like she matters because one
co-worker hated her so much she tried to steal her job and kill her.
