"Look at it. Listen to it. Can you smell it? This world. This horrible world. Why would anyone want to bring a baby into it?"

"Lullaby" is the ninth episode of season three of the supernatural action series Angel and the fifty-third episode of the series overall. It was written and directed by Tim Minear and first aired on the WB Network on November 19th, 2001. In this episode, Daniel Holtz continues on his vendetta against Angel and Darla. He learns from Sahjhan that Angel has a soul, but this does not deter him from his crusade to avenge his daughter. Holtz finds a loophole in the mystic ward around Caritas and throws a grenade into the main bar area, destroying it. Darla goes into labor and gives birth to her child, but cannot allow herself to remain in a world of such ugliness, knowing that her vampiric nature might endanger her child.
