Did You Know?


Linwood (played by John Rubinstein) says, "Lilah, this is my corner of the sky. I decide when the sun rises and when it sets..." Rubinstein was the original actor to play the title role in the Broadway musical "Pippin" whose signature song is "Corner of the Sky". See more »


The blade that comes from behind Linwood's chair and decapitates him has a large oval cut out of the middle so that it will completely miss the neck. See more »


Angel: Wesley told me everything that's been going on. So as far as I'm concerned, what you deserve rests on one answer. Did you do something to Cordelia?
Connor: No.
Winifred 'Fred' Burkle: He's lying.
Connor: No, I'm not.
Charles Gunn: No way she just happened to disappear the same night.
Connor: I'm telling the truth, okay?
Angel: I know. I can tell. Done enough lying for me to know the difference. Truth has a better sound to it. Less nasal, you know.

No matter how hard I try, everything I touch turns to ashes
12 January 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

No matter how hard I try, everything I touch turns to ashes - Certainly my favorite season opener, Angel season 4 is my favorite season I have on DVD and is begins with a serious bang. Season 3 left the fans brooding for months, luckily it does have a happy ending, sorta. 'Angel' is still stuck in the ocean hallucinating a whole bunch, and i'm a huge fan of dreams/hallucinations. His first one was having a dinner with the entire fang gang, everyone's happy until 'Angel' realizes it's just a nightmare, the second one is with 'Cordy', how it could have been if they had met up that night but that one ends with 'Angel' eating 'Cordy' and the last one is with 'Connor' getting his neck twisted by 'Angel'. The other characters all have plenty of moments, but of course i'm mostly talking about 'Wesley' who is now screwing 'Lilah' and keeping slave girl in his closet. I love his scenes with 'Justine', shame this had to be her last episode but at least she had a great exit, 'Wesley' made her make a choice between being a slave for the rest of her life or actually making something of it, of course we all know she changed her name to 'Tina', painted her hair blonde and became a lesbian. 'Wes' sex scene with Lilah was also very steamy, you could almost smell it. I loved 'Lilah' getting rid of the worst ANGEL character 'Lindwood Murrow' by decapitating him, go girl!. 'Vincent Kartheiser' was added to the credits in this episode, i'm still not entirely sure why I love his character so much, but he does the 'tortured'-thing so well. 'Angel's speech at the end was excellent, especially the way he ends it - I love you Connor, now get out of my house. The only main character that bugged me was 'Fred', first she protected 'Connor' and then she goes around electrocuting him?. Also what she said to Wes 'You really don't care anymore, do you?' after bringing back 'Angel' and taking care of him, really hits my wrong nerve, that little unthankful troll, they should have left her in pylea. Anyway, I really love this episode despite 'Cordy's absence but at least her 'God, i'm so bored' moment at the end was just perfect. ANGEL: What you did to me was unbelievable, Connor. But then I got stuck in a hell dimension by my girlfriend one time for a hundred years, so three months under the ocean actually gave me perspective. Kind of a M. C. Esher perspective, but I did get time to think. About us, about the world. Nothing in the world is the way it ought to be. It's harsh, and cruel. But that's why there's us. Champions. It doesn't matter where we come from, what we've done or suffered, or even if we make a difference. We live as though the world was what it should be, to show it what it can be. You're not a part of that yet. I hope you will be (10 out of 10)
