Really Great
7 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really loved this episode. I wasn't expecting to, after where we left off last episode.

I didn't really think Angel would lose his soul again. I've never understood why everyone decided that Angel couldn't have sex at all without losing his soul. I was pretty sure it was just because it was with Buffy in a beautiful and truly happy moment. And if any sex was going to get rid of the soul, it wouldn't be this one, done in a moment of pure despair with someone he mostly wants to kill. Sure enough, I was right.

But I wasn't expecting it to cause an epiphany. It was really fun seeing Angel have this epiphany and make a complete turn around. He really hit rock bottom, and managed to make a pretty swift turn around back up. As Lorne mentions, if Angel isn't going to be Angel, we'd at least prefer him to be evil than hyper-broody. And I'm really glad we got Angel back.

My favourite part was him trying to make it up to Wes, Cordy, and Gunn. Especially with Wes in the car, he kept trying to make light-hearted jokes, and it was just so adorable.

The fight between Angel and Lindsey is also pretty fun. It's just so raw and well-done (and I'm sure Angel looking so beat up when he asks for forgiveness doesn't hurt!). I love that post-epiphany, he returns Lindsey's car with a "Sorry" note.

I had been worried about how Angel would finally make his return, and how he's win back the trust and love of his friends. I couldn't quite see a smooth way to do it that would feel right. But I think this episode did a really fantastic job doing that, and overall was really enjoyable, with a great mix of drama and humour.
