Narrowly escaping from Holtz and Lilah, the Angel Investigations team head off in search of Darla, who has run away. Angel finds her pondering her love for the unborn child, and they return to the newly refurbished Caritas, where she can give birth safely. The child will not come, however.
The fiery destruction of the club by Holtz prevents this though. Lying in the alley outside, Darla realises that only by giving up her life can her baby be born.
