Bruce's arrival in LA is high profile, but he shakes off the press to visit Angel Investigations. The building is closed, enquiries forwarded to Wolfram and Hart. He knows their reputation, doesn't want to get close without more information.
At the third cocktail party an acquaintance mentions the lawyers' reclusive new CEO. Their web site has pictures.
That night's local news mentions sick children, unconscious, their faces ghastly smiles. The Joker's work? If it is, Angel can wait.
