Trivia

Wesley references the Eleusinian Mysteries which is a cult or religious sect of Ancient Greece. Very little is known about the rites and practices of the cult other than the fact that they focused on the goddesses Demeter and her daughter Percephone, the latter of whom was abducted by Hades and made his bride. This is the only real connection with the mysteries and the underworld that were the basis for the Dinza character. See more »

Goofs

In the opening scene, which is supposed to take place in 1985, the young Gwen Raiden is wearing a red coat with "Old Navy" clearly written on its zipper. Old Navy was not founded until 1994. See more »

Quotes

Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Just beware: Dinza isn't remotely trustworthy.
Angel: What should I do then? Send her a gift? A sacrifice? Unholy fruit basket?

Thank you for Gwen
30 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not only one of the best but one of my favorite episodes of the season. First of all, we're introduced to Gwen. As a guy, do I really have to explain why that's so great? Aside from how hot she is, she actually is one of the more unique guest characters to appear in any season. To have a hot chick with superpowers who is a professional thief. Not something you normally see anywhere on TV. When she and Angel kiss after she unintentionally makes his heart beat; that was great.

Secondly, we get another great and very hot love scene with Wesley and Lilah. The two of them hooking up was a great plot twist because of the whole sleeping with the enemy angle. Not to mention how ridiculously hot Lilah is and how great she talks dirty. BEST PART OF THE EPISODE! WES: Shut up Lilah. LILAH: Make me. And then he goes down on her. Freakin' sweet.

This episode would've been perfect if Gwen hadn't revived Gunn after she fried him in the vault. Ever since he hooked up with Fred and later turned his back on Wes, I had been waiting to see him get what was coming to him. Gunn dying would've fit that scenario perfectly. Unfortunately, not everything can be good.

To end with Angel seeing Cordy in the beautiful place and deciding he shouldn't get her out was one of the sweetest moments. And Cordy's line of "What are you, deficient? Get me out of here" is just as great as her last line in Deep Down of "G-d, I am so bored."
