Gunn was sired during the last battle but not by Spike or Angel but by some vamps who drug him off. Nina is pissed off at Angel, not sure why. Gun thinks he can be more human than angel as a vamp without a soul. he says angel wasn't much of a man before he became a vamp so him getting his soul back doesn't make much difference.
Angel and Conner are on good terms but angel is worried the lord whos son he killed will take his revenge out on conner. gwen shows angel and connor what some vamps did to a group of girls and angel thinks he knows who it was, he travels to beverly hills and incounters spike and illyria. before leaving angel sends conner to hq to grab the dragon. he tells conner to call him by name and he'll be in good with the beast. angel whispers the name but we don't hear it. we only know its weird.
sorry for the lame review im about to go to bed and wanted to pound it out. so now we know how gunn was sired and why angel and illyria are fighting in issue three. the big mystery is what did angel name the dragon.
im betting buffy
