Not great in itself
12 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

BELONGING

The Good; Very clever opening with the mirror in the restaurant. The scene with Angel on the false beach is also great and all the stuff between Lorne (aka Krevlorneswath of the Deathwok clan) and his cousin "Again ,NOT a coward!"

The Bad; Awful to see Cordy humiliated by the director, CC a veteran of loads of commercials in real life, I wonder if this was an experience she had? As Angel says, I thought demon violence was impossible in Caritas.

Best line: Rondell "We been waiting on you for months, bro"

Jeez, how did they get away with that? The poor guys whom the Drakken eats

Apocalypses: 5

Angel Clichés Damsel in distress; the girl the Drakken takes as food 19

In disguise; 8

DB get's his shirt off; 12

Cordy's tattoo; 6, they actually go to great lengths not to show it during the commercial shoot.

Cheap Angel; 7 Treats the gang to a fancy dinner but insists on getting his money's worth. Says he's not cheap just old.

Fang Gang in bondage: Cordy: 5 Angel: 9 Wes: 4 Gunn; 1

Fang gang knocked out: Cordy: 10 Angel: 12 Wes: 5 Doyle; 1 Gunn; 1 Lorne; 1

Kills: Wes kills the Haclaar, Angel kills the Drakken Cordy: 5 vamps, 1 demons Angel; 26 vamps, 33 and 1/2 demons, 3 humans Doyle; 1 vamp Wes; 3 demons Kate; 3 vamps Faith; 16 vamps, 6 demons, 3 humans. Gunn; 7 vamps+ 2 demons.

Fang Gang go evil: Cordy: 2 Angel: 2

Alternate Fang Gang: Cordy: 2 Angel: 6

Characters killed: 2 guys by the Drakken 37

Recurring characters killed; Gunn's friend George 6;

Total number of Angel Investigations: 4, Angel, Cordy, Wes and Gunn

Angel Investigations shot: Angel: 11 Wes; 1

Packing heat; Gunn suggests using a flamethrower against the demon, we've seen a member of his gang use one in War Zone Wes; 3 Doyle; 1 Angel; 1

Notches on Fang Gang bedpost: Cordy: 2 ?+Wilson/Hacksaw Beast Angel: 2; Buffy and Darla Wes; 2; Virginia and the bleached blonde

Kinky dinky: Angel remembers when you could get a tavern wench for a few bob (presumably when he was Liam the drunken whoring layabout rather than Angelus). Needless to say Cordy looks incredible in her seashell bikini as indeed does her gorgeous blonde co-star who seems quite smitten with Angel and very taken aback that he doesn't notice her considerable charms on display. When Angel relates the description of Cordy's bikini to Gunn and Wes they seem very interested (still think of CC sexually?). And check out Angel fondling his axe as he tells them. Apparently Haclaar beasts feed and mate at the same time.

Captain Subtext; Cordy describes Fred as pretty. Lorne says he used to chat up the senoritas at the bar when the other Pylean men were out hunting once again painting him as bi.

Know the face, different character; 2

Parking garages; 5,

Buffy characters on Angel; 16 Wetherby, Collins and Smith. Angel, Cordy, Oz, Spike, Buffy, Wes, Faith, Darla, Dru, Master, Anne, Willow and Harmony

Questions and observations; Wes phones home, when we see his dad in 'Lineage' we understand this conversation better. Lorne performs an excellent version of Stevie Wonders 'Superstition', Andy Hallet's second best song on the show in my opinion. Fred for the first time. Love the way the librarian rationalises Lorne's appearance. He refers to Harry Potter, I don't know if it's deliberate but Wes the sorcerer has a little zigzag scar on his forehead throughout the ep.

Marks out of 10; 6/10 OK ep but not brilliant, promises much to come
