There is such a thing as bad sex
12 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While 'Epiphany' has its ups and downs, it's still one of the best episodes of season 2 because of all the emotion involved. After being on the brink in 'Reprise' and doing it with Darla while almost in a fit of depression, he wakes up and miraculously comes to his senses. Having the scene so similar to when he lost his soul after sleeping with Buffy was a perfect set up for his return to reality. Seeing him out in the rain, I first thought, "Oh great, he's lost his soul again." But when he comes to and is disgusted by what he did with Darla was kind of a shock. Telling her that unlike when he did it with Buffy, sleeping with her was perfect despair, not happiness. While kicking her out was a little cruel, she still was a vampire, wasn't she.

My least favorite part was that this was Kate's last episode. I enjoyed any episode she was in and wanted to see more of her. Kate & Angel had such amazing chemistry as characters. When she first appeared in 'Lonely Hearts' and especially in 'Sense and Sensitivity', she and Angel almost seemed like they'd make a better couple than Angel & Buffy ever did. And no matter how much Kate may have turned on Angel, this episode proved that he did care for her in more than a platonic way. This was made evident by him going out of his way to save her after her attempted suicide. The mutual bond was confirmed at the end when she's the only one who realizes Angel had an epiphany. KATE: "Yikes. it sounds like you had an epiphany." ANGEL: "I keep saying that but nobody's listening." KATE: "Well I'm pretty much convinced since I'm alive to be convinced." ANGEL: "You know, you don't have to be a cop." KATE: "I'm okay. Anyway, I'm not headed towards another pill-a-thon. I'm very grateful. I never thought you'd come for me but I got cut a huge break and I believe. I don't know what I believe but that maybe we're not alone in this." ANGEL: "Why?" KATE: "Because I never invited you in." Even though those were her last lines, I was happy to see Kate's tenure on the show end on a positive note with her 'being on Angel's side' again. Losing her also sucked because she was so damn hot.

Even though it was a little cheesy with how they did it, I was happy to see Angel reunite with Wes, Gunn & Cordy. Him saying he wanted to work for them actually made sense in some way. It allows Angel the freedom to be the champion and do a lot of the leg work without all of the pressure of being the boss.
