Storyline

Anne, head of the teen shelter, seeks assistance from Gunn, Wesley, and Cordelia when she learns of kids in the area being harassed by police officers. It seems a frustrated police chief in a bad part of town initiates a new program to combat rising violence on the streets: resurrecting officers killed in the line of duty. Unbeknownst to the others, Angel and Detective Lockley attempt to track down the zombie officers' puppet master. In the process, Wesley is shot and badly wounded by one of the officers. Angel however cannot bring himself to visit his former employee. Written by Patrick "The G" Gurney

Goofs

"Anne" has been mentioned many times in the Buffy- and Angel-verses as being the same character as "Chanterelle" and "Lily." When "Lily" took over Buffy's alternate identity, she assumed the name "Anne." As "Chanterelle," she had already encountered Angel, yet when the characters meet again, they appear to be meeting for the first time, as neither appears to have any memory or knowledge of the other.
