(This is a short recap; we hope to have a longer, more detailed summary
Aired January 28, 2004
a mental ward a doctor and nurse discover that a patient has been
given the wrong med’s and they panic. As the doctor and security try
to approach the patient’s room the girl, Dana bust down the door in
responds to her missing her medication. The doctor tries to calm her
but she rips open a linked gate and beats security and brutally
slaughters one, the doctor runs away.
We discover that Gunn plays golf. He tells Fred that a lot of cases
are settled on the greens before they go to court.
Angel wants Eve gone but Gunn looks at it all legal like and says
they can’t risk things and tick off any higher powers. Angel
Harmony tells the gang about the mental hospital break out and that
the girl is possessed.
Spike got the ‘memo’ too (about the girl) and both he and Angel
arrive at the hospital to investigate. The doctor shows them her
room and drawings and explains that when Dana was ten her family was
murdered and she was taken by the murderer and tortured. As long as
the hospital has had her she has been catatonic until recently where
she has sudden outbursts of in human strength.
Spike says that sounds like demon possession and he leaves to search
for her. A nurse lets Angel view videos of Dana in sessions with the
doctor. She heard there were job openings at W&H and she thought she
could get her foot in the door helping Angel out. Angel discovers
Dana is talking Romanian among other languages. He figures out she
is a chosen one, a vampire slayer.
Dana goes into a variety store and when a clerk tries to stop her
from eating the food she breaks his arm. When taking some clothes a
security man tries to stop her she later strolls out of the store
with new clothes and a weapon.
Spike finds the girls and turns vamp face on her. They fight and
Spike is thrown through a window. He lands on the pavement where
Angel drives up and tells Spike to stay out of it.
Wesley contacts Rupert Giles (Buffy’s ex-watcher) who says he’ll
send his best watcher, Andrew (yeah!) When Angel and Spike enter the
office Andrew throws his arms around Spike happy to see him alive
and ‘more beautiful then ever’.
Andrew re-accounts the slayer’s story like a novel but Angel reminds
that they already know it. Andrew tells them about Willow conjuring
up all potential slayers and giving them strength to help Buffy.
(Series finale of Buffy). The watchers have been tracking down all
of them and training them. Dana is an exception because she was
institutionalized. The gang quickly figure out that Dana is
confusing the memories of her tortured past with the memories of the
Spike has had enough and announces that he is leaving to go out and
do ‘Angels job’. He tells Angel that he needs to let go of the past;
it’s starting to make him look old.
While searching for Dana he pulls Andrew out of hiding, he was
following him. Andrew reveals a coat full of weapons and says Giles
has been training him and he’s 82% more manly.
A realtor shows Angel, Lorne and a psychic reader (he reads Tom
Arnold) the home Dana lived in with her family. The psychics reading
of the house freaks out the realtor and she leaves. He says the
murderer needed them to suffer. Dana didn’t know him and though she
tried to hide he sensed her and took her to a dark basement where
pain lives and it smells like molasses.
Dana visits the place she was held captive and finds the weapons
used on her. She remembers her torturer as Spike.
Andrew tells Spike about the Scooby gang. Xander is in Africa,
Willow and Kennedy are in Brazil and Buffy and Dawn are in Rome
where Dawn is going to Italian School. When Buffy was in Rome
rounding up the potential slayers she discovered she liked it there.
She doesn’t know Spike is alive and Spike doesn’t want Andrew to
tell her. He will handle it himself.
Dana is watching them and she attacks. Andrew shoots a tranquilizer
but she knocks him out. Spike follows her to the basement. He tries
to talk to her. He understands her, he use to date a girl that
wasn’t all there. He tries to explain how she is mixing her past and
slayers memories. Dana calls him William The Bloody and quotes words
her torturer and past slayers had once said. She drugs him, he loses
his strength and she chains him up.
Angel and the gang are trying to track Dana. Fred says that cooking
whiskey smells like molasses so they want to try to find a
distillery close to the last found victim. Andrew returns to the
office and tells them that Spike has been captured.
“Piece by piece, you can’t hurt me anymore.” Dana says and Spike
looks down to see his hands are missing. He again tries to tell her
that her brain is jumbled and she is confusing him with another man.
She knows that he had killed two slayers so he still deserves the
Angel arrives to help. He tells Dana that her torturer named Walter
Kendall and that he was killed trying to rob a liquor store. She
tries to slay Angel but the gang and the W&H people are there.
Wesley shoots several tranquilizers into her. The medical team are
there to help Spike.
As Angel tells his team to take Dana away Andrew says that he is
taking her. Angel tells him to get out of the way. Other slayers
appear behind Andrew and again he says they are taking Dana with
them under Buffy's orders. No one trusts Angel because he is now
with W&H. They are no longer on the same side. Andrew and the
slayers take Dana away.
Spike’s hands are repaired. Angel arrives in his hospital room and
they talk. As a demon Spike never thought of the nature of evil. He
thought it was like a party, he didn’t think about the victims.
Angel says that evil was everything to him, it was like art. Dana is
an innocent victim just like Angel and Spike use to be.
“Is pathological idiot an actual condition?” Angel.
“I suggest you stop your friend. If he finds Dana he’s going to wind
up dead like the others.” The doctor. “Ya but he’ll just end up
coming back.” Angel replies.
“He’s my Frodo, he’s alive.” Andrew about Spike.
“We saved the world together. I mean Buffy helped but it was mostly
“Yes attractive slender women. Andrew about Fred.
“I’ve got 12 slayers and not one of them has dated you.” Andrew to
