Angel's past comes to haunt him. An ally from World War II takes Fred, Gunn, and Wes hostage while seeking Angel. This is the only vampire Angel sired after he got his soul back. Angel relives the past and must determine his future.
Did You Know?
One of the government officials recruiting Angel in 1943 for the submarine mission stated that he is part of the Demon Research Initiative. This is apparently a predecessor to the Initiative from Buffy the Vampire Slayer
(1997) Season Four. See more
The German officer trapped with the American men in the torpedo room is wearing the dress uniform of the SS, complete with the Nazi party armband, instead on the Kriegsmarine (navy) uniform. This is extremely unlikely, as the Kriegsmarine was totally independent of the SS and, even if a SS officer was on board, he would not be wearing his dress uniform in a submarine. See more
Funny what goes through a man's mind when his life's hanging in the balance. Boys talked about that a lot back on the boat. Always figured it'd be the special moments you freeze in time. Your mom singing you to sleep at night. Sneaking into the movies with your best friend. The way your girl's hair shimmers in the sun. But the truth is... the only thing that really goes through your head is... "wow... this really sucks." And then you're gone.
