"Sleep Tight" is episode 16 of season 3 in the television show Angel.
Wesley has been studying the prophecies regarding Angel and Connor, and his findings over the last few days have left him more convinced than ever that Angel will indeed kill his son.
The singing woman, Kim, talks about the odd behavior and appearance of a band she'd been playing with. Angel continues to drink blood and draws attention with his unusual behavior. Fred and Wesley discover Kim has just been infected with the demon and that a mystical medication can cure it. Kim tells the others about the demons and where they can be found and killed. Angel is enthusiastic about the fight and Wesley sends a group out while he pursues business of his own. Holtz and several of his men show up armed at the hotel. Holtz wants to know where Connor is, but since he's not there, Holtz directs his men to attack, but keep Angel alive.
As the battle ensues, Lorne wakes up and uses a high-pitch note to debilitate some of the attackers. Holtz and some of his men retreat, and Lorne reveals that Wesley has been seeing Holtz and has kidnapped Connor.
Angel tells Holtz to take Connor so that Connor will live. Sahjhan opens a dimensional rift to Quor'Toth — a very dark dimension — and explains that either the child dies or everyone is sucked into the portal. In the interest of survival, Holtz runs with Connor into the rift. Angel tries to follow, but he's thrown back and the rift is mended. The others leave, and a devastated Angel is left lying on the ground, crying for his lost son.
Charisma Carpenter does not appear in this episode, despite featuring in the title credits.
