At the office and on assignment, Angel (David Boreanaz) behaves strangely, snapping at his friends, complaining about Connor and beating up unnecessarily on a group of demons. It turns out that Wolfram & Hart have been feeding him traces of human blood -- Connor's -- in the normal animal blood he drinks. As Angel confronts Lilah Morgan (Stephanie Romanov) about this latest outrage, he learns of her partnership with Sahjhan (Jack Conley) but remains puzzled as to why the demon hates him. Meanwhile, Wes skulks around, trying to make sense of the conflicting evidence about exactly how much of a threat Angel poses to Connor. Ultimately, after weighty debates with various players -- including Holtz (Keith Szarabajka) and his minion Justine (Laurel Holloman) -- he resolves to kidnap the child for its own good. He pretends to be taking Connor on an outing, conks The Host (Andy Hallett) on the head, and flees. But Wes is intercepted by Justine, who slits his throat and brings Connor to Holtz. As the villains attempt to flee with the child, Angel's crew and Wolfram & Hart converge on them. Sahjhan opens an interdimensional portal, into which Holtz and the baby plunge, leaving Justine -- and Angel -- locked on the other side. Thanks, in part, to Wes, Angel's son has been stolen. Originally broadcast March 4, 2002, on the WB network, "Sleep Tight" marked season three, episode 16 of the supernatural comedy drama.
