As if the apocalyptic situation with The Judge isn't bad enough, the curse inflicted upon Angel has been lifted. With no soul, Angel has reverted to his evil ways and joined forces with Spike and Drusilla. Buffy must now put aside her feelings for the man she once loved and come to terms with the monster he's become.

Episode Quotes
Drusilla: I'm naming all the stars.
Spike: You can't see the stars, love. That's the ceiling. Also, it's day.
Drusilla: I can see them, but I've named them all the same name and there's terrible confusion.

Drusilla: Psst. We're going to destroy the world. Want to come?
Angelus: Yeah, destroying the world. Great. I'm really more interested in the Slayer.
Spike: Well, she's in the world, so that should work out.

Spike: You've really got a yen to hurt this girl, haven't you?
Angelus: She made me feel like a human being. That's not the kind of thing you just forgive.

(seeing Buffy holding a rocket launcher)
The Judge: What's that do?

Angelus: You can't do it. You can't kill me.
(she kicks him in the groin)
Buffy: Give me time.
