God doesn't want you, but I still do
10 February 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

God doesn't want you, but I still do - A flashback-filled episode with lots of 'Angelus' and 'Darla' and how they turned 'Drusilla', what I most love about the second season are the flashbacks, I wish the entire series would have had more of those, plus it was great to see Juliet Laundau as a human and how she got turned into a vampire. Meanwhile 'Angel' is being restless, he's tired all the time and getting off his game, until he sees 'Darla' at a fair who is just trying to drive him mad. I loved the scene when 'Angel' went sniffing on 'Cordy's hair - Pursonal BUBBLE!. When 'Angel' figured out that 'Darla' was human he realized that she was the one that was brought back in that box, only as a human. But everyone else just thought he'd gone crazy. I love Julie Benz' acting in this episode, especially during the last scene when 'Angel' brings her to that demon-church -The b!tch is you have a soul now. Pretty soon those memories are gonna start eating away at you. What a fabulous episode, you can already see that 'Angel' is starting to go dark. ANGEL: You're gonna feel it, you know. What you did, that man you got killed. DARLA: Please, He was an actor. ANGEL: I'm serious. DARLA: Yeah, like a heart attack, and just about as much fun. ANGEL: Darla, you hurt anyone else and I'll kill you. DARLA: Will you? Isn't that against your cub-scout code? ANGEL: I'll make an exception. (10 out of 10)
