Angel - Season Three Episode Guide
Dad

PictureHappy Father's day, Angel.

The gang head back to the hotel, with Angel's new son. Once there, Angel begins to settle uncomfortably into fatherhood. As he fusses, the hotel is repeatedly attacked by factions intent on capturing or killing the baby.

After all other plans have failed, Angel takes the baby and makes a run for it. What his attackers don't know is that he's got a baby/bomb swap surprise in store.

Quiz - ten quick questions.

Trivia: Wesley and Gunn gee themselves up during a tense siege situation by imagining themselves as action heroes. Wes goes for John Wayne in 1959 Western Rio Bravo, while Gunn goes for a role from John Carpenter's 1976 thriller Assault on Precinct Thirteen.

Angel names his baby in this episode, choosing the traditional Irish name Connor. Coming from the Gaelic name O'Conchobhair, meaning 'counsellor', or more appropriately, 'helping warrior'.

Baby Connor is played by a set of triplets. That way no single baby had to be on set for too long.

Lilah quotes Shakespeare, comparing the birth of Angel's son to that of MacDuff in Macbeth, also know as the Scottish play. Both were "ripped untimely from their mother's womb," though in MacDuff's case it was via Caesarian section.
