(My first thread, so be gentle.)
Okay, not a bad episode, for its intent.
Angel is still in Denial World, leaping onto the dehydrater-demon case with glee.
What, they don’t have one of those bells at the front desk?
I wonder what happened to the guy’s dog.
Groo either does a Three’s Company misunderstanding walk-in or actually hears the exact truth. We shall see (though Cordy staying behind in the kitchen made it pretty clear which was which). Either way, the actor’s doing a pretty good job playing a dim but straightforward guy. Pity the character has such a ridiculous name, or I’d like him a lot more.
Gunn takes the hit and goes to Wesley for help. Good for him.
Then Wesley gets to play the martyr role to the hilt – dude, you betrayed everyone. So sorry they didn’t scamper to your doorstep to get your side of the baby-kidnapping story. Get your ass off the couch and explain it to them. “Burden of proof.” Look it up. P.S. Get over Fred. She made her choice because you were a coward. Deal.
Cordy’s powers make another deus ex machina appearance, which automatically lowers this ep a notch or so.P.S. Your hair is still bad. Long and dark, it’s what brought you to the dance. Go with it.
“The Destroyer.” Well, okay, as soon as the portal opened, we knew that was coming. Me, I would have loved to have that plot thread hanging for like two years, but I understand the reason for doing it so soon.
Lorne desperately needs to be made full cast. Kill someone else if we need the room.
Can’t be Angel, can’t be either of the cute women, can’t be Wesley, 'cause he’s all angsty… sorry, Gunn.
How many times do we need to do the Wolfram and Hart “Ha ha! Angel is doomed! Oh, wait, we don’t want Angel dead, so we must help him!” scene? Let’s just put it in the opening credits and be done with it. Love the bug password, though. It’s the little touches that keep me coming back.
And, of course – alcohol solves all of our problems! Yippee!
