Premise

Angel's back on the job in Los Angeles, tracking a mysterious cult, and working to solve a kidnapping. The only trouble is, a few old familiar faces keep showing up — faces he shouldn't really be seeing![1]

Summary

Angel has taken up his job in Los Angeles again, but is quickly faced by mysterious figures from his past, and they seem to be quite real. Similarly, Spike is faced by the ghosts of his pasts and the two accidentally met each other, placing the blame for the occurrence with the other.

A fight ensues, but they soon discover that they have been manipulated, and are forced to work together again. The culprit turns out to be Lilitu, a demon both men wronged in the past, who hoped they would kill one another. Angel and Spike are able to defeat her; however, both go their own ways again.
