In a flashback to to Borsa, Borşa, Romania, in 1898, Darla leads Angelus into a home. After removing Angelus' Angelus's blindfold, Darla wishes him a happy birthday and lets him vamp out on a bound and gagged gypsy girl.



In court the next day, Lindsey [=McDonald=] on behalf of Wolfram & Hart moves for dismissal of a murder charge as there are no witnesses, but Angel shows up in the nick of time with Marquez, who is a key witness for the prosecution and is now willing to testify. As Lindsey takes heat for his failure in court, Lee Mercer presents Lindsey with some papers, claiming a solution to their problem. Together with Lilah Morgan, who knows how to find Faith, he makes the contact.

The next night, Darla returns to find that her darling boy, Angelus, is no longer the demon she created. Angel reveals that the gypsy girl he ate on his birthday had a family, who found out about her death and did something to him. Darla is disgusted, breaks a chair, and tries to stake Angel. After several failed attempts to kill Angel, Darla kicks him out of the home.

The next night, night in 1898, Darla returns to find that her darling boy, Angelus, is no longer the demon she created. Angel reveals that the gypsy girl he ate on his birthday had a family, who found out about her death and did something to him. Darla is disgusted, breaks a chair, and tries to stake Angel. After several failed attempts she fails to kill Angel, Darla kicks him out of the home.



Angel, wearing a suit and spouting corporate double-speak, sneaks into Lindsey's Wolfram & Hart office. Lindsey interrupts Angel in mid-snoop. He denies knowing anything about Faith. He also informs Angel that Wolfram & Hart has advanced security systems both electronic and mystical-—Angel's every move has been documented in digital hi-def since he crossed the building's threshold. After disabling the first security guard on scene, and with a parting promise to Lindsey, Angel chooses discretion and leaves.

In the meantime, Cordelia tries to get into her apartment, but her ghost Phantom Dennis makes it difficult. Cordelia thinks Dennis is jealous of Wesley until they discover that Faith has broken in. Faith knocks Cordelia and Wesley out, and takes Wesley back to her apartment, where she ties him to a chair and tortures him. Faith has correctly calculated that Angel, indifferent to being targeted himself, will be unable to ignore threats to his friends. Finding Wesley still defiant, Faith recites the list of the "five basic torture groups," blunt, sharp, hot, cold and loud, and decides to move from blunt to sharp. Meanwhile, Angel and Cordelia feverishly work to locate Faith before she kills her bait.

* TookALevelInBadass: Wesley. After Faith gives Cordy an elbow to the face, Wes actually hits her. He still doesn't stand a chance in a fight with a ''slayer'', but even Faith is impressed ("All right, Wes!") Then he braves a night of ColdBloodedTorture without once begging for his life, a far cry from the Wes back in Sunnydale who cowered behind Giles and was willing to divulge crucial information in exchange for not being tortured. And his response to Faith saying that she wants to hear him scream? "You never will." Not to mention that Wes was fully prepared to have to kill Faith if she got the upper hand in her fight with Angel. Working as a "rogue demon hunter" in LA really paid off.
* TortureTechnician: Faith has a cute system for separating torture into five groups (àla the Food Pyramid), which Wesley gets to experience firsthand.
-->'''Faith:''' "We've only done one of the five basic torture groups. We've done blunt, but [[ToThePain that still leaves sharp, hot, cold, and loud]]."
