Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
Now that Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) has regained her memory and admitted her love for Angel (David Boreanaz -- see "Spin the Bottle"), our vampire hero is unwilling to let her just walk away. Confronting her, Angel learns that Cordy's memories of her time as a higher being are less than perfect. In one respect, though, they're all too clear: While she was bouncing around the ether, Cordy was able to see back through time and witness the carnage Angel wrought before the restoration of his soul. Even worse, she was able to experience every kill, every twisted emotion, as if it were her own. These horrific memories are the reason she can't be with Angel now -- and what's more, her recent glimpse of the coming apocalypse has her more than a little terrified. Soon enough, her vision comes to pass when a hulking, horned demon arises on the very spot where Darla died and Connor (Vincent Kartheiser) was born. The Beast (Vladimir Kulich) goes on a rampage, leaving piles of bodies around L.A. while scourge after scourge descends on the city. Angel and the gang engage in face-to-face combat with the creature, who proves more than capable of decimating them. Meanwhile, Cordy and Connor bunker down in their warehouse hideaway and watch the fire raining from the sky. Cordy, convinced that the end of the world is nigh, decides to fulfill Connor's unvoiced yearning for her. She makes love with him, unaware that the battered Angel is watching from a nearby rooftop. Originally broadcast November 17, 2002, on the WB network, "Apocalypse, Nowish" marked season four, episode seven of the supernatural comedy drama.
