The One Where Angel Takes Over Wolfram And Hart...
26 September 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's actually the first episode of Angel I ever saw. Because I heard Spike was coming into it.

In this episode, Angel has just taken over Wolfram and Hart. With him being CEO he wants to change the law firm from representing the worlds greatest evils, to helping people. One person at a time. Fred has taken over the science devision, obviously. And Lorne has taken over the entertainment devision, once again, obviously. Wesley gets to do all the prophecy and archive stuff and Gunn, is pretty much the muscle. Until they give him all the knowledge of the law, and he becomes a lawyer. And Harmony ends up being Angel's new assistant. At the very end of the episode, we see Angel open a package, that we've seen at least three times throughout the episode, and it turns out to be the amulet that Spike was wearing in Sunnydale, when he died. Angel drops it to the ground and Spike comes roaring in. My favorite line of the episode: "Blondie Bear?"

Overall, this is my favorite Season Premiere episode, and I give this episode an 8 out of 10.
