Did You Know?


In the book store in this episode, the Wolf Book, one of three Sacred Texts (Wolf, Ram, and Hart) from Pylea, Lorne's home dimension, can be seen on one of the shelves. See more »


When Angel's cellphone rings, Groo says "your coat is singing", but Lorne has previously stated that there is no music in Pylea, so Groo should not know the word "singing" or the meaning of it - unless Cordelia has taught him it before. See more »


Angel: Just tell me what I can do.
Cordelia Chase: I need you to help me have sex. With Groo.

2 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews


The Good; A not so subtle tale of Angel drawing away from CC, funny but nothing really special UNTIL the final scene with Wes' revelation changing what had been a lightweight ep utterly.

The Bad; Tree demon looks stupid

Best line: Angel; "Life is short, OK not mine but most peoples"

Apocalypses: 5

Angel Clichés In disguise; 8

DB get's his shirt off; 12

Cordy's tatt; 10

Cheap Angel; 9 quite the reverse, he's very generous to CC

Fang Gang in bondage: Gunn and Fred trapped by the tree roots. So is the guy chained to the wall at the brothel but he doesn't want to be released. Or judged. Cordy: 5 Angel: 11 Wes: 6 Gunn; 4 Lorne; 3 Fred; 2

Fang gang knocked out: Cordy: 11 Angel: 14 Wes: 5 Doyle; 1 Gunn; 1 Lorne; 3

Notches on Fang Gang bedpost: once again CC drawn to someone with a demon essence Cordy: 3 ?+Wilson/Hacksaw Beast+Phantom Dennis Angel: 5; Buffy, Darla and The Transcending Furies Wes; 2; Virginia and the bleached blonde

Kinky dinky: CC on the Groo "RRRRrrrrrrr", likes his (admittedly formidable) muscles. CC wants to know if they can 'com without actually shukking'? (Second base?) She plans to rip the Groo's shirt off later, shouldn't she let him get his strength back first? Angel in a brothel not for the first time or I dare say not the last, seems a fun place for all. Reputedly there was a scene where Angel stumbles across Kate Lochley working as a hooker in the brothel but Elizabeth Rohm was too busy doing Law&Order. Gunn refers to voodoo booty rituals but he might be making that up.

Captain Subtext; Groo and CC and Fred and Gunn pair up leaving Angel and Wes to wander around like a gay couple. Angel objects to Groo 'handling his weapons' which is nothing to CC asking him to help her have sex with Groo. She also states that 'No women is going to tempt you' which he doesn't take as a compliment. The Madam thinks he and the Groo are a gay couple, Groo mentioning 'his princess'. Poor Wes wonders that Fred thinks of him as a brother.

Know the face, different character; 4

Parking garages; 5,

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

Questions and observations; Who wants to bet me that it was Numfar that did the 'Dance of Revolution'? AI still take the occasional paying case in order to fund Connor's college tuition (and presumably CC's holiday). Much in the same way as Buffy seems to increasingly rely on Dawn for her emotional needs as she slowly parts with Riley, Angel seems to get over CC by concentrating his affections on Connor whilst Wes throws himself into his work. Personally I love the Groo and I'm glad to have him on the show. CC refers to her cousin, we know she has no sister but is she an only child? Did you notice that the woman the demon grabs in the park looks the spitting image of Cordy (maybe her stand-in/stunt double?)

Marks out of 10; 7/10, good fun and you really feel for Angel and Wes
