Angel Episode Guide
Season Five; Episode 20: "The Girl in
(This is a short recap; we hope to have a longer, more detailed summary
Aired May 5, 2004.
and Spike need to retrieve a dead body from Italy. The body can be
brought back to life but only if a ritual is performed in a certain
time period. Angel receives a phone call about Buffy. The dreaded
Immortal has been spotted in Italy near Buffy. Angel says that he
will take care of it but Spike says he’s going along too. Now they
can kill two birds with one stone.
Angel and Spike are on a jet to Italy. Angel discusses dating Nina
(the werewolf). Angel and Spike decide they need to put aside their
differences and work together. They can help Buffy and pick up the
demon body thingy. They drink together from the little bottles of
liquor and can’t seem to get drunk. Spike says that’s in the vampire
constitution. Angel reveals that he has had a spy on Buffy. Just one
who got spotted and ended up calling Angel from the hospital.
We see Spike memory of Italy in the 1950’s.
Then we see Spike aka: William the Bloody and Angel aka: Angelus in
1894 Italy where they are hanging from chains wearing only their
underwear. The Immortal has captured them and his posse shows up to
apologize on behalf of their master for containing them. As the boys
are being unchained they are told to leave the country. Angelus
snaps one of their necks and sends the other ones running away.
Illyria is wondering the office hallways; Wesley and Lorne are
watching her. She is bitching about her loss of power and strength.
She does not care for Lorne’s amusement. Wes requests that she go to
the lab for more test, she leaves.
Fred’s parents arrive; they have a lay over before flying to Hawaii
and have stopped to surprise Fred. Wes invites them to his office.
Angel and Spike show up at Buffy’s apartment where they are greeted
by Andrew (watcher trainee) who is staying with her and Dawn. He
tells them that they have just missed her she’s gone out to see The
Immortal. Andrew reveals that they like to cozy on the couch and
snuggle together. To Angel and Spikes horror Buffy is dating him.
Back to 1894 Italy Angelus finds Darla lying on the bed and thinks
she’s injured. Apparently she’s just tired from her little romp in
the sack with the Immortal. It’s okay he didn’t hurt her until she
asked anyway. But the Immortal is Angelus nemesis how could she do
this to him? William the Bloody jokes about it until he discovers
that Drusilla has been with The Immortal as well. He had Dru and
Darla concurrently the girls bragged. Spike pissed off because he
and Angelus were never allowed to do that.
The girls go off to take a bath together. They decided to go after
the Immortal. They show up at a ball The Immortal is at but are not
In the present Spike and Angel believe that Buffy must be under some
sort of spell or the Immortal’s powers to be actually with him.
They go to pick up the body from a demon man and women. They only
part they receive is the head in a bag. They return to Buffy’s again
but you know it’s only 8:30 pm and she hasn’t returned yet.
Fred’s parents find the Wolfram & Hart offices quite impressive. Wes
is trying to conjure up the right way to tell them that Fred is dead
when she walks into his office with welcome arms.
Angel and Spike arrive at a dance club toting the head in the bag.
They are looking for Buffy and The Immortal. A bartender points them
out on the dance floor together. They fight over who gets to go to
Buffy and in doing so they leave the bag with the head at the bar
unattended. The creepy demon guy from where they originally picked
up the head has now taken the bag. When Angel and Spike approach the
demon to take the bag they are surrounded by a gang of men. A fight
breaks out slow-mo style and in the confusion Spike and Angel start
to fight each other and the demon gets away with the bag. They run
out of the bar and see the demon escaping in their car so Spike
steals a moped and with Angel on the back they ride slowing after
him. They crash and the demon gets away.
They now have 12 hours to get the head back to L.A or the ritual
cannot be done. First priority though Spike and Angel return to
Buffy’s apartment to see if she has returned. That would be no.
Angel and Spike clue in that Italy has a Wolfram & Hart head office.
They are surprised to find on their arrival that the offices look
exactly the same as the one in L.A except for they are greeted by a
very busty liaison. They receive a very warm welcoming.
Illyria has transformed her body back to its original state. As Fred
she shows ‘her parents’ around the offices and into her lab. As her
parent’s walk away to have a look at her office Wes holds her back
and questions her about what she is doing. She replies in her own
voice that she can appear as she chooses and thought being Fred
would be more convenient.
Angel and Spike explain to the liaison their Buffy situation. But
she assures them that Buffy is under no spell. The Immortal doesn’t
do tricks. Do they not have an Italian Wesley that can do research
on The Immortal. Yes but he’s taken a nap and really isn’t their
mission to find and return the head a little more important? Italy’s
W&H offices have received a ransom note and they need to hurry to
the drop off place. Angel and Spike are expecting guns, helicopters
etc but in Italy kidnapping happen all the time and they are not
handled that way.
Standing together holding the money at the drop off place Angel and
Spike argue over who has saved the world more. And of course they
are better then The Immortal.
Illyria/Fred says good-bye to her folks. They ask Wes to take care
of their little girl and though the mom feels that Fred seems
different they father assumes it’s because she is getting older.
When they are alone Wesley asks Illyria if she got what she needed.
Illyria replies yes most informative. Wes says fine but don’t do it
The demon with his lackey’s arrives for the trade off. He bugs Angel
and Spike about The Immortal. They realize they have been set up by
The Immortal to keep them away from Buffy.
Everyone begins to fight and the bag gets thrown about. It is not
done this way in Italy. They give them the money they give them the
head. The demon has to explain this many times. After the trade the
demon and his men leave pleasantly.
Angel opens the bag to find not the head but a bomb. It blows up
destroying Spikes long black leather coat. It was special to him. He
did steal it after slaying a slayer. Good news though Italy’s W&H
easily replaced it and sent him others like it to the LA offices.
Angel got a stylin’ flashy leather jacket that he doesn’t much care
for but apparently it is all the rage.
It is told to the boys that all first timers involved in a
kidnapping get a bomb. But don’t worry about it now W&H will handle
it now. Angel and Spike argue that they don’t need their work done
for them they in fact champions. But they get locked out of the
They return again to Buffy’ apartment to discover she has yet to
come home. Andrew is getting ready to go. Spike asks him if he has
found Buffy acting weird. Andrew knows what Spike is taking about
and no Buffy fell for The Immortal on her own and she is happy. Yes
The Immortal is cool but he ain’t all that. Buffy loves both Angel
and Spike but she has moved on and they need to deal with that.
Buffy knows she has to live her life. Andrew suggests Angel and
Spike try it themselves sometime. Andrew suited up in a tux leaves
with two nice dressed lady friends.
Illyria is still in Fred form; she asks Wes if he is angry with her.
Illyria wants to explore Wesley and Fred’s relationship, which only
sickens Wesley. He insists that she change back to her blue form and
never be Fred again. She changes back as he wishes.
Angel and Spike return thinking that the head is still missing but
they find it on Angel’s desk with regards from The Immortal. Angel
and Spike argue over what she sees in The Immortal and who was
better for her Angel or Spike. Could they lock her in a box? No
she’s too strong and if they did a spell on her she’d only figure it
out. They agree to move on as they speak they are moving on.
“I just want to see you happy. Not too happy though or I might have
to stake you. Second thought...have at it.” Spike
“You want a drink?” Angel
“God yes!” Spike
“You're right. You can't get drunk off these things.” Angel (about
the little bottles of alcohol on the plane)
“We couldn't anyway; vampire constitution. So how'd you find out?”
“I've drunk enough of these things and I still don't like you.”
“I meant about Buffy!” Spike
“I don't even speak the language. “ Spike
“We'll get you a book. “ Angel
“How do you say 'wank off' in Italian?” Spike
“Go ahead. Take your best shot. I'll snatch your little wee sticks
out of the air and spend the next fortnight shoving them slowly up
your arse.” Angelus
“He felt like sunshine.” Drusilla sexual feelings for The Immortal.
“Come on Dru lets take a bath!” Darla
“Will you hold me under the water?” Dru
“The man has no sense of indecency. You remember Frankfurt. He
hatches the Rathruhn egg personally, and then just decides to give
those nuns safe passage.” Spike
“Those were my nuns!” Angelus
“Yeah. Nuns are your thing. Everybody knows that. They respect it.
They respect us.” Spike
“Spike, is Angel crying?” Andrew
“No...not yet.” Spike
“The Immortal?! “ Spike
“I mean, come on!” Angel
“She's smarter than that!” Spike
“She'd never fall for a centuries old guy with a dark past who may
or may not be evil.” Angel
“Ours is a forever love.” Angel
“I had a relationship with her, too.” Spike
“Ok, sleeping together is not a relationship.” Angel
“It is if you do it enough times.” Spike
“I helped save the world, you know.” Angel
“Like I haven't.” Spike
“Yeah, but I've done it a lot more.” Angel
“Oh, please. “ Spike
“I closed the Hellmouth.” Angel.
“I've done that. “ Spike
“Yeah, you wore a necklace. You know, I helped kill the Mayor, and,
uh, Jasmine.“ Angel
“Do those really count as saving the world?” Spike
“I stopped Acathla. That saved the world.” Angel
“Buffy ran you through with a sword.” Spike
“Yeah, but I made her do it. I signalled her with my eyes.” Angel
“She killed you. I helped her. That one counts as mine!” Spike
“Oh, look - the Americans are relying on violence to solve their
problems. What a surprise.” The Demon
“Every time (the Immortal) shows up, I either lose my girl, get
beaten by an angry mob, or get thrown in prison for tax evasion.
(Angel stares) Long story.” Spike
“Our friend, she's under some sort of spell...” Angel
“Cast by the vilest wretch this side of Mount Everest. Which...I'm
told he has climbed...several times.” Spike
“But she's not finished baking yet. I gotta wait till she's done
baking, you know, till she finds herself, 'cause that's the drill.
Fine. I'm waiting patiently, and meanwhile, The Immortal's eating'
cookie dough!” Angel: (about Buffy)
