Trivia

Fred refers to Gunn as "Gunn" in this episode as opposed to "Charles" as we see in previous episodes. Perhaps this is intentional, emphasizing the fact that the couple have now parted ways. See more »

Goofs

When Harmony and Spike are in bed and Harmony bites him, Spike jumps off without having time to either pull up his pants or zip up. A few moments later his pants are on, zipped up and buttoned. See more »

3 March 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Don't mistake me. I do love the ladies. It's just lately, I've been wondering what it'd be like to share the slaughter of innocents with another man - As much as I want to hate this episode, for several reasons, I have always admitted that it's well done, the flashbacks were perfect and the action and script were superb. There are only two main things that really p!ss me off, first of all, 'Spike', big surprise there, he's always selfish and unbearable but this time more so than the usual, also him becoming corporeal just like that without any real explanation on how, didn't really leave a good impression, and people whine about season 4 not making sense? Another one is the way 'Angel' was written in this episode, they wrote him into this incredibly childish loser, and even though I know that was the point of all of this, it still bothered me, it felt as if the writers were just trying to make the audience dislike his character. Didn't work for me 'cause I kept loving his character, even though I did have the urge to slap him. The best about the episode gotta be the flashbacks, it had been a while and even though I wish 'Darla' had appeared in them, 'Dru' worked just fine. Apparently 'Angelus' was whom turned 'Willy' into a monster by having sex with Dru right in front of him, 'Angelus' is so morbid and I love it. I also liked that strange sound that made people crazy and cry blood, like 'Harmony' when she was having sex with 'Spike' and 'Gunn' who tried to strangle 'Eve'. The whole 'Eve' mystery also worked well, she got away by making the gang believe that she wasn't involved in any of it by using her innocent look, while she was actually behind all of it and was even working (well, sleeping) with 'Lindsey' who is back and has tattoo's all over his body and apartment. Well done episode all round, definitely annoying, but in a good way. kind of. SPIKE: Look at you. Thinking you're the big savior fighting for truth, justice, and soccer moms, but you still can't lay flesh on a cross without smelling like bacon, can you? ANGEL: Like you're any different. SPIKE: Well, that's just it. I am. And you know it. You had a soul forced on you as a curse. Make you suffer for all the horrible things you'd done. But me, I fought for my soul. Went through the demon trials. Almost did me in a dozen times over, but I kept fighting. 'Cause I knew it was the right thing to do. It's my destiny. ANGEL: Really? Heard it was just to get into a girl's pants. (9.0 out of 10)
