Faith captures Angelus and they both go on a mindtrip together.

* AllsWellThatEndsWell: Averted with Pregnant!Cordelia's WalkInChimeIn.
-->'''Cordy:''' Sorry, Angel. But if this is the speech about how the worst is behind us, you may want to save it for later.
* AmazonChaser: Cordelia's description of Connor/Faith.
-->What the hell is it [[LikeFatherLikeSon with you and Faith?]] [[GreenEyedMonster As if I didn't see the way you looked at her!]] [[{{Dominatrix}} She cracked her whip, and you liked it!]] You were practically in her [[HellBentForLeather leather-clad]] [[MommasBoy lap!]]
* AngstComa: And not Faith's first, either - lampshaded by Cordelia.
* AreYouPonderingWhatImPondering: Willow visits Cordelia in her bedroom to explain how she's been called to help put Angel's soul back. Evil!Cordy reaches under the covers for her butcher's knife, but relaxes as Willow talks of how impossible her task is...until Willow has a EurekaMoment.
-->'''Willow:''' (excited) Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
-->'''Cordelia:''' (grabs the knife again) I doubt it.
* AttackHello: Cordelia breaks a vase over Connor's head to make him think she's afraid of the Huge Floaty Head (and probably to punish him for making her break Angel's SoulJar).
* BackStory
-->'''Faith:''' I'm guessing it's more like "Angelus, this is your life."
* BaitAndSwitch: Angelus starts freaking out when he realises he's flashed back to the 1920's. We see Angel, apparently DrivenToSuicide, but he's actually [[DivingSave diving in front of a vehicle to save a puppy]], to Angelus' [[BrickJoke total disgust]].
* {{Battle in the Center of the Mind}}: Angel vs. Angelus. Technically it's a tag-team bout, since Faith is in Angel's brain, too.
* BewareTheSuperman: Cordelia telling Connor that they're special and the rules don't apply to them.
* {{Bishounen}}
-->'''Willow:''' You must be Angel's handsome yet androgynous son.
-->'''Connor:''' It's ''Connor''.
-->'''Willow:''' And [[LamarckWasRight the sneer's genetic]]; who knew?
* BlackEyesOfEvil: Connor wonders aloud if Willow is powerful enough to take on the Beastmaster. Next moment it's hello, Dark-Eyed Girl!
* BuffySpeak: With Willow on the scene the amount of Buffy Speak jumps exponentially. Lack-of-Hygiene World, avoidy, bone-age, smash-o-crash, huge floaty head, pep-talky.
* CallBack: Faith seeking to atone for her crimes with a grand yet suicidal gesture, as Angel tried to do in "Reprise".
* CharacterOverlap: Willow crosses over from ''Series/{{Buffy|The Vampire Slayer}}'', and [[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS7E18DirtyGirls later brings Faith back with her]]. Willow is shown receiving the call from Fred in "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS7E17LiesMyParentsToldMe Lies My Parents Told Me]]".
* CliffhangerCopout / OnceMoreWithClarity: We're treated to a flashback of the end of the last episode -- only this time, the camera holds on Faith so we can see her pump herself full of magical heroin before fighting Angelus.
* ContinuityNod
** Angel listening to the song ''Mandy'', which he confessed to being fond of.
** Angelus' disgust at saving a puppy -- [[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS2E16BewitchedBotheredAndBewildered Giles once told Buffy]] about how Angelus [[NoodleIncident did something terrible]] [[KickTheDog to a puppy]] to 'commemorate' St Valentine's Day.
** The re-ensoulment ritual is the same as the one used in "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS2E22BecomingPart2 Becoming]]" (except the English lines are cut).
* ConvenientlyTimedAttackFromBehind: Connor is about to stake an unconscious Angel when Faith grabs his wrist.
-->'''Faith:''' [[DontMakeMeTakeMyBeltOff Break me off a switch, son]]. (throws Connor against the cage wall) There's about to be a whoppin'.
* ConverseWithTheUnconscious: Lorne talks to an unconscious Faith, but it's clear he thinks there's little hope. At one point he sings 'Macarthur Park' to her -- Faith and Angelus hear the song in their shared dream playing on a jukebox.
* CurseCutShort: Cordelia on seeing the broken [[SoulJar Muo-Ping]], gets out an "Oh sh--" before a TwistedEchoCut of Angelus saying "I don't believe this!".
-->'''Faith:''' Way I figure, I've got one last job: baby-sit the psycho 'til they shove a soul up your--
-->'''Angelus:''' Not gonna happen.
* DescriptionCut: Fred mentions that Connor and Cordelia have a relationship that might be "a bit icky". Cut to [[OedipusComplex Cordelia telling Connor to kill his father]].
* DespairSpeech: Wesley tries to explain to Willow how he's [[DarkerAndEdgier not the same person she once knew]].
-->'''Wesley:''' A lot's happened. Not just Angelus. I've been...I've changed. I've seen a darkness in myself. I'm not sure you'd even begin to understand...
-->'''Willow:''' [[BlaseBoast I flayed a guy alive and tried to destroy the world.]]
-->'''Wesley:''' Oh. So...
-->'''Willow:''' Darkness? Been there.
-->'''Wesley:''' Yeah. Well, I never... flayed... [[Recap/AngelS04E01DeepDown I had a woman chained in a closet]].
-->'''Willow:''' (supportively) Hey!

-->'''Cordelia:''' [[TongueTrauma I'th bid my thongue.]]
* JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind: The drug traps both Angelus and Faith inside his memories until his soul is restored.

* FantasticDrug: Orpheus.
* FelonyMisdemeanor
-->'''Angel:''' I'm not perfect, Faith. Even with a soul, I've done things I wished a thousand times I could take back.
-->'''Angelus:''' Yeah, like those Manilow concerts, you ''[[AndIMustScream son of a bitch!]]''
* FightingFromTheInside: Angelus claims to always be doing this to Angel.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Cordelia saying, "If only this were a few weeks later" when trying to summon enough power to defeat Willow.
* GoldenMoment: Averted by Faith as it would only lead to hugging.
* GreenEyedMonster: Cordelia's reaction to the possibility of Connor/Faith, though it could simply be because she fears losing her influence over Connor.

* HollywoodExorcism: Bell, book and candle are used for the magic ritual to put Angel's soul back.

* IronicEchoCut
-->'''Lorne:''' It's OK, Faith. It's OK. You just wait. They'll get Angel back, and... (trying to convince himself) it'll all be worth it. It'll all-- (Faith gasps and sits up -- cut to her dream where Faith wakes up in an alley)
-->'''Angelus:''' It'll all be worth it. Is that what you try to tell yourself, Faithy? Is that the nasty little lie that kept those thighs nice and warm in your prison bunk?
* ManipulativeBitch: Evil!Cordelia really brings out her inner Lady Macbeth.
* MeaningfulName: [[ClassicalMythology Orpheus]].
-->'''Wesley:''' It leads you down to hell. And leaves you there.

-->'''Angel/Angelus:''' [[SpeakInUnison I've been waiting a long time for this.]]
* MistakenForGay: Willow thinks she and Fred are flirting. Fred thinks they're just geeking out.
* MoralEventHorizon: 1970's Angel waiting for a man to die so he can feed off him, completing the transformation into the [[ReducedToRatburgers homeless rat-eater]] we remember from BTVS "[[Recap/BuffyTheVampireSlayerS2E21BecomingPart1 Becoming]]".
* TheNeedsOfTheMany: Cordy re why Connor should kill his father.
* NoSenseOfHumor
-->'''Wesley:''' Sorry. I think my sense of humor's trapped in a jar somewhere.
-->'''Willow:''' Does seem like you've given in to the grumpy side of the Force.
* OedipusComplex: Cordelia snogs Connor and talks him into killing his father.
* OhMyGods: Willow says "Hecate's sake."
* PermaStubble / TheNicknamer
-->'''Willow:''' (seeing Wesley) Oh, and it's the Marlboro Man. Or at least his extra-stubbly, mentally unstable, insomniac, first cousin of-- [[OhMyGods For the love of Hecate]], somebody stop me.
* PetTheDog: 1920's Angel.
-->'''Angelus:''' Oh no. I got to get out of here.
-->'''Faith:''' Dude! You just rescued a puppy!
-->'''Angelus:''' [[IronicHell I'm in hell. This is hell, and I'm in it.]]
* PietaPlagiarism: Wesley carries Faith's bloodied body into the Hyperion Hotel in SlowMotion.
* PivotalWakeup: Angelus does this inside Faith's mind -- given that the Buffyverse had been running for six years, it's surprising they waited till now to fulfill this trope.
* PreviouslyOn: Carries on directly from the last scene.
* RealLifeRelative: That's ElizaDushku's brother playing the robber.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Creator/CharismaCarpenter's pregnancy required a lot of shuffling around of the intended story.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: Discussed, and averted. Faith seems to have accepted this. Angel disagrees.
-->'''Faith:''' Rolled the bones. You for me.
-->'''Angel:''' I used to think that. That there'd be a point when I'd paid my dues. (...) Our time is never up, Faith. We pay for everything.
-->'''Faith:''' It hurts.
-->'''Angel:''' I know. I know.
* RescueSex: The flapper girl is willing to be very grateful to the handsome man who saved her puppy. As Angel is [[IDoNotDrinkWine craving something else]], he tells her to take a walk.
* RockBottom
* RunningGag / RealMenWearPink: Back in season two Angel sang ''Mandy'' so Lorne could read his future. Angelus is humiliated when Faith sees a flashback of Angel listening to the song.
-->'''Angelus:''' Bring on the pain!
* SameClothesDifferentYear: Angel's wearing a black leather jacket in TheSeventies. It goes great with [[IWasQuiteAFashionVictim the striped pants, semi-unbuttoned shirt, gold necklace and gratuitously wide collars]].
* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness:
-->'''Willow:''' OK, now all I gotta do is contact the spirit world, harness the Delothrian ebb, and focus it through my little marble-o'-doom here, and we'll restore the Muo-Ping's entropic equilibrium.
-->'''Gunn:''' [[LaymansTerms Jar go smash]]?
* ShipTease: Willow/Fred's GeekyTurnOn. Connor [[LikeFatherLikeSon also has a Slayer attraction]].
* SkywardScream: Angel lets one loose after feeding on a murder victim during the 1970s.
* SlaveCollar: For once not played for fetish aspects.
* SlippingAMickey: Faith does this to Angelus the hard way - overdosing on a drug that affects vampires, then letting him drink her blood. The downside, of course, being that she takes a lethal overdose ''and'' loses a lot of blood.
-->'''Faith:''' [[GoOutWithASmile Kicked his ass]]. *coma*
* SoundtrackDissonance: Angel's flashback to a donut shop robbery, in which he witnessed the clerk get fatally shot. Angel drinks the corpse's blood as "Mandy" plays on a jukebox.
* TerseTalker: Times 2
-->'''Faith:''' Wes.
-->'''Wesley:''' Faith.
-->'''Faith:''' See. [[BritishStuffiness Brits know how to say goodbye.]] Angel here wanted a hug.
* TheLastOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers
-->'''Willow:''' There's lots of jars in the world -- can't shatter them all. I mean, you could, but good things come in jars. Peanut butter, jelly, those two-headed fetal pigs at the natural history museum. (Wes doesn't respond) Come on, everybody loves fetal pigs.
* ThisIsGonnaSuck: After Faith drugs Angelus he is forced to relive the good acts he's done. He actually freaks out to Faith when he realizes what's coming.
* TwoScenesOneDialogue / TalkingInYourDreams: Justified as Faith and Angelus are linked psychically.
* WalkInChimeIn
-->'''Connor:''' We need to put Angelus down!
-->'''Willow:''' I don't think so. (everyone turns to look at Willow) I think you need a witch.
* WhatTheHellHero: Lorne does this to Wesley once he realises how he and Faith took down Angelus.
* YourMindMakesItReal: When Dream!Angelus kicks Faith in the face, her cheek wound breaks open in the real world.
* YourMom
-->'''Faith:''' Did you kiss your mother with that mouth?
-->'''Angelus:''' No, but I [[SelfMadeOrphan ate her with it]].
