Unhappy that Angel has taken Faith in and is trying to help her, Buffy travels to L.A. for a confrontation. Tensions between the two ex-lovers become frayed as a result. Meanwhile, a Watcher's Council Special Operations Unit tries to entice Wesley to help them capture the rogue slayer with promises of his reinstatement.
Wesley plays along just long enough to warn Angel. As Faith escapes, Angel takes on a fully armed helicopter crewed by the special unit.
When the dust has settled, Angel and Buffy discover that Faith has turned herself in to the police and is prepared to pay for her past crimes.
