The Short: Part 3 of a 4 part series. As Darla's contractions get closer together, Angel has a run-in with Holtz, who remains dead-set on destroying the two vampires, even after he learns of Angel's Soul. As Darla violently begins childbirth, Angel faces the responsibility of becoming a father and the possibilities of what miracle or destruction this new being may bring to the world.
The Long: After a ''Previously on Angel'' segment (see Continuity #1) we open on Angel being shocked by the presence of Holtz in the Hyperion lobby. Angel realizes that Holtz is the Tro-Clon. The Grappler demons trap Angel. Holtz sends some demons to find Darla. In the nearby alley Darla is having contractions and Angel is late (see Reference #1). Wesley unsuccessfully tries to get Darla to use breathing to reduce the pain, but she reminds him she doesn't breath. (Listen to the teaser here.)
- Holtz: ''Do you know what he is?''
Lilah: ''Yeah, I know. Vampire, cursed by gypsies who restored his soul. Destined to atone for centuries of evil, wacky sidekicks, yada, yada. I'd have him killed myself, except the people I work for have this policy.''
That about sums it up.
- Gunn: ''What we could really use right about now is some Vaseline and a catcher's mitt.''
- Gunn: ''Previously on Angel.''

The Offspring - Holtz traps Angel and tortures him. Sahjhan offers to bring Holtz to the future. Sahjhan wants his word he will show no mercy. Darla tells Angel she is pregnant. Wesley speak of the Nazian prophecies and the Tro-Clon.
