Desparate to find and recover Cordelia, Angel takes the gang on a dangerous mission to obtain a relic, the Axis of Pythia, which he believes will let him achieve his aim.
However, their break-in to steal the Axis is disrupted when they run into another thief - the electrically-charged Gwen. Tussling with her, Gunn is killed when her powerful charge stops his heart. She stops to revive him, then escapes with the Axis.
Delivering the Axis, Gwen is double-crossed, but fortunately Angel arrives to confront her, ending up saving her instead. As a mark of gratitude, she gives him the Axis.
Meanwhile, Cordy's up in heaven, bored out of her head.
