This episode brings Faith to LA. She's still struggling with her darkness and fleeing her life in Sunnydale. After Angel ruins another Wolfram and Hart case, they set out to get rid of him once and for all. And who better to do the job than Faith, a rouge Vampire Slayer? They hire her to kill Angel, unaware that Angel identifies with Faith's pain. Meanwhile, Faith is driven by self-hatred and is careening out of control as she goes after Angel and his friends.

The One With Faith...
28 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love this episode. It is so good. I just love Faith and I love that they brought her into Angel, after her time on Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

This episode takes place after an episode of Buffy The Vampire Slayer. In Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 4 Episode 16, Faith takes over Buffy's body. After they realize what happens and they fix it, Faith goes on the run. In this episode, Faith comes to Los Angeles and is wreaking havoc. And after Angel ruins yet another one of Wolfram & Hart's cases, they set out to destroy him, once and for all. Who could do a better job of killing a vampire than a Vampire Slayer. That's right. They recruit Faith to kill Angel. She kidnaps Wesley and tortures him. Poor, Wesley. Faith is brought to self-loathing and eventually Angel finds her. But instead of killing her, or taking her somewhere, like a jail or something, he tries to help her, after she begs him to kill her.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
