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?
While in the submarine during 1943, Angel and Spike uncover a German document that describes research on how to control demons by using brain implants. Years later, Spike will be captured and implanted with a government chip, rendering him unable to harm humans. See more
About 3/4 of the way thorough this episode Lawson has two of the diesel engines running. The subsequent dialogue makes it clear that they are still submerged and the submarine does not have a snorkel (comment about the need to vent). Operating these engines while submerged would use up all the air in the boat in seconds. Until nuclear power, the vast majority of submarines (including the one shown) operated on electric motors and batteries while submerged. 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.
