Angel, deep under the ocean in the coffin, hallucinates about his colleagues and Connor, all the while physically weakened. Lilah continues her sexual relationship with Wesley and just as she leaves, he dresses and reveals a cage in which he has imprisoned Justine after capturing her. Forcing her to help him, Wesley searches the ocean for Angel’s coffin in a boat. They find the coffin and rescue Angel, feeding him animal blood. Meanwhile, Cordy is bored with her existence as a higher being. We meet the theiving Gwen, who can generate electricty through touch. She runs into Angel and his gang and later helps them. Deciding to give his friends a break Angel takes Gunn & Fred on a trip to Las Vegas to see Lorne, who is headlining a cabaret show with scantily clad backup singers. It turns out the owner is forcing Lorne to read & identify the futures of the people who sang in the audience and the casino owners steal their destinies. Deprived of their destiny, the humans continue to keep playing at the casino day & night. The group rescue Lorne after fightining with the bad guys. As they come back to the hotel they see Cordelia – only she has no clue as to who they are!
Confused about the group she is with, she seeks refuge in the arms of Connor. Meanwhile, Fred finds out that her mentor professor was responsible for sending her into Pylea. While fighting and trying to send him to a hell dimension, Gunn kills the professor, fearing that if Fred is successful, she will regret it later. This however drives a wedge between them and their relationship is effectively over.
A beast arises at the spot where Connor was born and starts beating everyone up. It looks like the apocalypse is imminent and Cordy makes love with Connor. Angel sees this from a rooftop and is furious. Then the beast goes into Wolfram & Hart and kills everyone, only to have them awake up as zombies. As the gang goes into the offices, Lilah is the only one who escapes and Wesley asks her to save herself. Angel confronts Cordy bitterly and tells her to leave with Connor. A confrontation with the beast reveals that he had fought with Angelus in the past and the only way to kill the beast is to get Angelus back. They get a shaman to trap Angel’s soul in a glass jar and without his soul Angel reverts to his evil vampire self: Angelus.
However, once they have the information, they find that the glass jar is missing. Angelus taunts the rest of the gang. They find a spell that can retrive the soul back and restore Angel back. However it doesn’t work and Angelus goes after Lilah & Cordy. During their flight, Cordy reveals her nasty nature and kills Lilah. With the help of Faith, they are able to capture Angelus. Cordelia is the one who is controlling the beast – she is actually the demon godess Jasmine who has taken over Cordelia’s body.Â And she is pregnant.
Cordy is found out to be the evil one, when she tries to kill Lorne and the others try to confront her. But Connor saves her bringing her to his loft. Before Angel can stop the birth, Jasmine arrives as a beautiful, African-American woman who puts a spell over everyone on Earth. They all come to worship her, not knowing that she feeds on a few souls everyday to survive. Fred is the one who initially breaks out of the spell and she brings the others out of it as well. Angel defeats her and Connor deals the final blow.
Lilah’s ghost appears to the gang at the hotel – she has a proposal for them. She says that the Senior Partners are happy that Angel & the gang have stopped peace on earth (Jasmine’s spell had people mostly peaceful) and as a reward they have chosen to given them the LA branch office. Angel, Fred, Gunn, Wesley & Lorne can take over different divions in the office and run things their way, with Angel as the CEO. It’s an offer that the 5 of them do take. Angel has a bargining offer – he will agree if the Senior Partners erase Connor’s memory of the events that took place and place him with a normal family as their son. The others also will forget that Connor existed in order for him to live happily.
