Tony D'Angelo and his crew arrive at Santos Escobar's yacht for a sit-down meeting with Legado del Fantasma. The boat head out to sea after Elektra Lopez says to take them somewhere nice.

The conversation turns heated in the meeting between the two factions. This is very well produced, despite being silly at times. Eventually, D'Angelo grows angry. He challenges Escobar to a six-man tag match at In Your House.

D'Angelo sneers at Escobar, telling him to look him in the eye. He also calls Escobar a "prick." D'Angelo then proposes an added stipulation. Whichever teams loses, they must join the opposing family and takes orders from them.

Escobar accepts the challenge, and tells D'Angelo they have a deal. They shake on it. The six-man tag match is official for In Your House.

Final Thoughts

This episode seemed less like a go-home show, and more like filler programming. However, there was clearly a lot of hype on this show for In Your House. Not sure if that translates into a lot of interest.
