Did You Know?


Anne is a carry over character from Buffy who changed her name at least twice before. She got the name Anne when Buffy gave it to her, after using it herself. See more »


Angel and Annie, the target of his attentions, act towards each other as strangers, despite the two meeting briefly in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Lie to Me. This is in seeming contradiction of Angel's well-established feats of photographic memory (as seen in Angel: Supersymmetry). See more »

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: I guess we'll just have to find out.

Charity WR&H style
5 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews


The Good; Anne's back, wonderful the way minor characters from old eps can now assume major roles in the Buffyverse. A nice pastiche of the cynicism of major corporations.

The Bad; Couldn't they have got some real TV stars to do that benefit?

Best line: Lindsey "Boo hoo Lilah, let me wipe away the tears with my plastic hand!"

Jeez, how did they get away with that? Anne refer to a 14 year old prostitute lying in her own blood after a rough trick, uuggghhhh! (real life always more horrific than supernatural evil)

Apocalypses: 4

Angel Clichés Damsel in distress; 17

In disguise; 7

Packing heat; Wes; 2 Doyle; 1 Angel; 1

Notches on Fang Gang bedpost: Cordy: 2 ?+Wilson/Hacksaw Beast Angel: 1;Buffy Wes; 2; Virginia and the bleached blonde

Kinky dinky: Kennell's school for girls, why is it that the buildings supernatural evil always seems to be drawn to are filled with teenage schoolgirls? (The Craft, Suspira, Carrie and countless trashier efforts, Satan's School for Girls, 5 Girls anyone?) Or did I just answer my own question? It's implied that Angel enjoys dressing up in Cordy's clothes. Angel says he is hitching a ride in Lilah's back seat, probably literally but the way he says it hints at innuendo.

Captain Subtext; The 'Life Lessons' actress is asked why they made her character gay, an obvious nod to Willow on Buffy

Know the face, different character; Anne/Lily/Chantrelle but still the same girl 2

Parking garages; yep, Angel attacks Lilah in hers 6,

Guantanamo Bay; More Merle bashing, you genuinely start to feel sorry for him.

Buffy characters on Angel; 14 Wetherby, Collins and Smith. Angel, Cordy, Oz, Spike, Buffy, Wes, Faith, Darla, Dru, Master, Anne

Questions and observations; Angel criticises Merle's beanbags, surely he had some during the Manilow years. We're told that Angel was in Mexico in the 20s and fought Boon over a girl, love to see that in the comics some time. Love his built-in knuckledusters. So why doesn't Anne recognise Angel when she was introduced to him in the Buffy ep Lie to Me? Interesting to see Wes as Bond, he would have been great in the Roger Moore style. Presumably Angel beats Boon for the money.

Marks out of 10; 6/10 standalone ep, some nice stuff with Anne and Boon and some nice humour with Lindsey and Lilah.
