The dark magic Angel performed to make Sahjhan material proves to have horrific side effects. A wave of translucent, parasitical creatures infests the hotel, crawling into people and killing them through dehydration.
With Fred infested, and the gang under siege, Cordelia comes to the rescue, manifesting a demon power which rids the hotel of the creatures. Wesley, meanwhile, agrees to help only Fred, saving her with a stiff drink.
Danger over, the gang still can't relax, as Fred tells them the Destroyer is on the way. A portal opens in the lobby, and a monster and young man leap out. Swiftly despatching the demon, the boy turns to Angel with the words, "Hi, Dad".
