Season Five; Episode 15: "A Hole in
the World" ByCathy
(This is a short recap; we hope to have a longer, more detailed summary
Aired February 25, 2004
flashback to a young Fred preparing to leave her home in Texas for
Hell A. She's going to go to UCLA. Her parents are nervous but she
assures them that she's just going there to study. Her dad swears
that if she meets any angels he'll eat the dog. Fred promises them
she'll be dull, even boring.
In the present Fred with a
flame-thrower and Wesley with a gun are taking out a nest of mystic
bug creatures. They find it romantic being by a roaring fire and a
snug little nest, they kiss.
Spike saves Angel’s life by stabbing
him. The sword went through Angel torso and killed a bug on his
back. Fred asks for the specimen to take back to the lab to study.
Meanwhile, a special delivery comes to
the lab for Fred in the middle of the night. Knox asked if it was
sent to the right place, ancient relics are two floors down. Plus
does it need a signature? No it’s signed.
At the office, Gunn is singing show
tunes but breaks into gansta rap when he spies Wesley at his door.
Gunn does an ‘ex-boyfriend revenge’ when he teases Wesley into
thinking he and Fred had a night together. Wesley asks Gunn if he is
okay with the new relationship? Ya it’s cool, he knows how he feels
about her but if he ever hurts her he will kill him like a chicken.
Gunn breaks the news that he has located Lindsey McDonald and knows
where he is living.
Spike and Angel are fighting; it’s
sounds pretty serious. What’s the problem? If cavemen and astronaut
got into a fight who would win? They’ve been yelling at each other
for 14 minutes about it. Do the astronauts have weapons? No.
In the lab Fred and Knox discuss her
and Wes being together which he’s totally good about he just doesn’t
want her to feel uncomfortable, he loves working with her. Knox
leaves the room to get a ‘HASMAT’ team and to find out where the
coffin came from. Fred inspects the ancient mystery sarcophagus
coffin that was sent to her anonymously. She pushes a purple button
and breathes in some gas or mummy’s dust.
Spikes been called into Angels office
which he’s not too happy about. He was downstairs playing poker with
the crew from accounts receivable and it was quite promising. And by
the way all the guys agree astronauts don’t stand a chance against
cavemen so don’t even start. Angel is tired of the constant
bickering and competition between he and Spike. He wants to get rid
of Spike once and for all. Spike accuses Angel that he can’t stand
the competition plus Spike’s got nowhere else to go. Angel offers to
send him to one of Wolfram & Hart's satellite offices…preferably
Outer Mongolia. He’ll have cars, gadgets and an expense account.
Spike seems okay with that idea.
Fred seems to be fine but when she and
Wesley are discussing dinner plans she coughs up blood and
In the hospital room the boys gather
around Fred. She asks what is wrong with her. They say she’s just
sick and they promise her that they are isolating the sarcophagus
and should have the answer for her in a couple of hours. Outside
Fred's room the truth comes out and it's bad. The power is mystical.
A parasitic agent is working through her. Fred's organs are cooking
and in a day's time they will liquefy. The team decides to start
with whomever sent the package to Fred. They split up to find out.
Wesley is searching through one of his
mystical books when one of the employees comes into his office
complaining that not everyone needs to be working on Fred’s case.
Surprisingly Wesley takes out a gun and shoots him in the knee. He
also wants anyone else not working Miss Burkle’s case sent to him.
Gunn goes to the white room looking
for answers and gets hit by a reflection of his self. His own image
is the new conduit to the Senior Partners. The conduit is pretty
annoyed with Gunn's because he is failing; the senior partners are
not there for his convenience. Gunn says he’s there for someone else
and he's willing to make a deal for Fred, his life. The conduit
tells him deals are for the devil and that he already owns his life.
Angel, Spike and Lorne head to
Lindsey’s but discover Eve - she's desperate, jobless, and in
hiding. She and Lindsey had nothing to do with Fred's current
condition, and oh ya have they seen Lindsey? Lorne gives her an old
right hook and then he threatens her to sing to prove she isn’t
lying, which she isn’t but her future ain’t so bright. But wait the
girl does know a thing or two about Wolfram & Hart and she advises
them to look into the text that is forgotten. They need to find a
Wesley takes Eve's advice and looks
into the really, really ancient text. He finds out that she is
infected with an ancient parasitic demon called Illyria murdered by
rivals and left to wander in the ‘deeper well’ (A prison for the
dead). Fred's skin is hollowing out, Illyria wants to use Fred’s
body to return and the men know she could die. Their time is limited
and they need to get to the ‘deeper well’ immediately to draw the
demon back to the source. Unfortunately it's located in England but
fortunately W&H have really good jets Angel and Spike can get there
in a mere four hours.
Fred crawls out of bed and heads to
the lab. She's not the damsel in distress, she’s lived in a cave for
5 years no monster flu is going to keep her down but she is scared.
She's more likely than most to find whatever is trying to kill her.
Wes promises her he won’t stop and tells her she needs to rest. She
knows how bad it is and she asks him to take her home and he does.
It is revealed that Spike has never
flown before and Angel has only been in a helicopter. They are going
back to the mother country. Maybe after they save Fred they should
take in show, Angel has never seen Les Mis. Spike puts a damper on
it saying half way through the first act Angel will be drinking
humans again. They can’t lose Fred, they won’t. They’ve already lost
Fred finally gets Wes up to her room
and all he wants to do is read, she teases him. He tells her what
Spike and Angel are doing to help. Fred says she needs her stuffed
animal to help her but she can’t remember why. She’s worried about
how awful she must look but he tells her she is beautiful. She asks
him to read to her.
Knox suggests they freeze Fred. They'd
at least be able to stop the spread in its tracks. As Gunn and Knox
toss around ideas in the lab they realize that the virus is
impervious to the cold. Knox reveals that he wishes he could be the
white knight in the situation. He doesn't just love Fred he worships
it. What? IT? Gunn realizes that Knox is behind the entire thing.
Knox spills that this plan was set into motion millions of years ago
and there is no way to stop it. He says that Angel and Spike are on
the right track but they won't save her. Angel could save her but
he'll let her die.
Once in England Spike and Angel find
the deeper well. Warriors bust out to protect it but the vampires
are in a fighting mood reminiscent of past days. Once the warriors
are taken care of the keeper of the well emerges. His name is Drogan
and he and Angel have met before. Drogan knows Angel and Spike are
there about the demon Illyria. But don't ask him a question Drogan
can't lie. Drogan does tell Angel and Spike that Illyria was laid to
rest millions of years ago at the bottom of the deep well. She was
both feared and beloved when alive and Drogan supposes that the
disappearance of the sarcophagus was predestined to return even back
when Illyria was first buried. It was there with him until a month
ago and he hadn't noticed it disappeared. He is the keeper of
billions of coffins. Drogan thinks that Illyria, even millions of
years after her death, still must have acolytes around the world.
As it turns out, Knox is one of the
acolytes. Not only did he set the wheels in motion but also when it
got caught up in customs Gunn unwittingly signed the release form in
order to get him another brain boost. Gunn angered with guilt goes
to kill Knox but stops himself.
Drogan tells Angel that to rid the
spell of Illyria it requires a champion to release it. They’ve got
two. Unfortunately if they release Illyria from Fred it will save
her but it will crawl into the soul of tens of thousands of
innocents who will die in agony. Angel says ‘to hell with the
Fred gets worse. She fights it but she
knows that it is bigger then anything. She doesn’t want Wes to leave
her. She says she walks with heroes and he says she is one. She begs
not to be taken. She wants a kiss from Wesley and they do. She wants
to know if he would have loved her. He tells her he loved her since
he’s known her and maybe before. As she dies she asks Wesley to tell
her parents it was quick and that she wasn't scared. Suddenly Fred
is silent but her eyes change colour. She flip-flops on to the floor
next to her bed and suddenly she pops up to her feet. Her hair is
blue, clearly now Illyria who seems pleased with her new body.
“You just like stabbing me.” Angel.
“I…I’m shocked…shocked that you would
say that. I much prefer hitting you with a blunt instrument.” Spike.
“You and me this isn’t working out.”
“You saying we should start annoying
other people?” Spike.
“It’s my boys. I haven’t had this many
big strapping men at my bedside since that night with the varsity
lacrosse team. That was a joke.” Fred.
“Wes and Fred?” Angel.
“You didn’t know?” Spike.
“I didn’t know.” Angel.
“Right here. Do you wanna bet this is
the entrance to the deeper well?” Angel.
“Either that or Christmas land. Do you
ever have any fun?” Spike.
“St. Petersburg.” Spike.
“Thought you’d forgotten.” Angel.
“This goes through all the way to the
other side. So I figure, there’s a bloke somewhere around New
Zealand standing on a bridge like this one looking back down on us.
All the way down. There’s a hole in the world. Feels like we ought
to have known.” Spike.
