"It's bloody odd," said Giles. "During Ethan's spell every vampire in Sunnydale vanished, except Angel."

"And the Hellmouth's closed," said Angel, "can't feel it at all."

"Here's an odd one," said Buffy, reading the paper, "the Mayor spontaneously died of old age."

"I can't feel my demon," Angel realised. "Hey! I'm breathing."

"How could Ethan's spell do all that?"

"I can explain," said a senior, walking into the library.

"And you would be...?" asked Giles.

"God. But you can call me Oz."
