Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
Doyle (Glenn Quinn) finally gets up the nerve to ask out Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter), albeit halfheartedly, but her reply is a typically sarcastic "no." She tries to call, him, however, when she discovers roaches invading her dumpy apartment. Unfortunately, Doyle is busy being harassed by a demon in regards to some gambling debts, so he's unavailable. Cordelia therefore invites herself to move into Angel's plush digs. Unable to cope with Cordelia's nonexistent roommate skills, Angel (David Boreanaz) strikes a deal with Doyle: If Doyle will help Cordelia find a new flat, Angel will get the debt-collector demon off Doyle's back. Doyle does end up finding Cordelia a dream apartment, unfortunately, it's haunted by two separate ghosts. Cordelia and company eventually befriend one of the spooks and drive out the other one, leaving Cordy free to enjoy her new apartment. Originally broadcast November 2, 1999, on the WB network, "Rm w/a Vu" marked season one, episode five of the supernatural comedy drama. Aura, one of Cordelia's Heathers-style minions from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, appears in voice only, leaving a gossipy message on the Angel Investigations answering machine. The friendly ghost, Dennis, becomes a recurring character, though an invisible one. B.J. Porter, who portrays him in this episode, does not reappear.
