  • Episode Description
  • Suspended from her normal duty, Officer Kate Benson is recruited by Special Unit Two (SU2) for a temporary assignment. Mature gargoyles that have been hibernating (on churches in Europe) have awoken and are collecting food (people) to feed to their eggs which have been incubating for 17 years. The victims are being kept alive until the eggs hatch. SU2 has 24 hours to track down the gargoyles and destroy the nest before the mass hatching occurs.moreless

  • Quotes (11)

    • Kate: You enjoyed killing that thing, saving my life was secondary. (Nick smirks) Okay,you're supposed to disagree with that.

    • Nick: You know it's probably hard to believe, but no one has ever saved my life before. Kate: Oh, no. I believe it.

    • Carl: Hey, O’Malley, step on it. I’ve got a love appointment to make. Kate: I wouldn’t push my luck, Carl. Carl: I hear you. I’ll just tell O’Malley’s mom that it was him who made me late.

    • Little Brother: I have rights. Nick: Humans rights. You have a… horn.

    • Nick: I think I’ve got it. Kate: What, besides a case of homicidal mania?

    Notes (3)

    • Music: Perfect Now (Ashley Parker Angel, playing as Kate leaves the room after being suspended)

    • Captain Page tells Kate that all myths and stories of monsters are based on actual creatures, except vampires, which are total fiction. This is the first of many pokes on UPN's horror show Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

    • Carl (Danny) really did punch Nick (Michael) in the nose while they were filming the fight scene in the car.

    Trivia (4)

    • When Nick is holding the pipe and the gargoyle reaches out and bends it one-handed, that should have only worked if Nick were also that strong to hold onto it.

    • When Sean is explaining about why gargoyles festoon European churches, the 'unexplained disappearances' graphic behind him changes before he points the remote at the display to begin what looks like a Powerpoint presentation about churches and pictures of missing people.

    • Trivia: The convenience store clerk will be seen again as a motel manager in "the Skin".

    • Trivia: When Carl and Nick are fighting, Carl always gets in the last punch.

    Allusions (2)
