Angel Season Eleven #5

Sent by Illyria through time into the vampire's past, Angel and Fred find themselves on a ship bound for the new world where its crew is being picked off by Angelus and Darla. As with the first opening arc, this isn't a walk down memory lane where Fred and Angel are observers to events, instead the pair are active in the timestream and able to make changes to the past.

While Angel is able to avoid being seeing by either Darla or his less soul-filled self, Fred isn't so lucky. Seeking out the rumored magical item on the ship, Fred is able to find it but both vampires also find her. So how does Angel save his friend without directly confronting himself and possibly making large changes to the timeline (as you'd think Darla and Angelus would remembering running into an Angel with a soul)?

The other question left unanswered is what is the mystical beetle in the carved wooden box? What is its power and how is it connected to the dark visions of the future Angel must stop? I guess we'll have to wait and see. For fans.
