The Watcher wasn't sure what Buffy wanted once they reached LA. Did Angel still have that old hotel and did Buffy want everyone staying there? Did Angel want them staying there? What had been happening with the vampire? That was something Giles hadn't kept up on. Angel wasn't something Giles was particularly interested in unless it was absolutely necessary. Even now his hand ached when the weather turned, reminders of past broken bones and torture and death.
He'd wait until Buffy had contacted Angel. Giles could arrange a hotel temporarily until they knew how long they might be in LA. If longer than a month, he'd arrange some apartments or something.
