Storyline

Lilah returns from Hell to offer Angel Inc. the L.A. branch of Wolfram and Hart. They are given the option of going to see what it has to offer, which all of them decide to take. When on their tours, Fred is offered the Science Department. Gunn is taken to the White Room to see who replaced the Girl. Wesley is offered books with infinite knowledge, and Lorne is offered the Entertainment Department. If they accept, Angel would be the head honcho. In the end, Angel will accept, but only under one condition. Written by Amy

Season 4 review
9 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

After all the fuss made about Season 4, all the extremely love-hate reactions, so many people claiming it was the best season of the show and so many claiming it the worst... I don't really see why all the divisiveness. And that's to say that I don't really find it that much different in quality to the last two seasons. The fact that the whole season is pretty much serialized from 4.06 onwards does make it the most addictive one. But it's also easily its most problematic.

Let's start with Cordelia. I had heard so many people say they had "ruined" her in this season. Once she slept with Connor I fully agreed... until realizing she was possessed. Basically, "Cordelia" really didn't appear in this season at all besides her brief "paradise" scenes in the first few episodes. I can see why some might say they gave Charisma sh*t to do, but the character, as she was, really wasn't a factor. Once I saw she was possessed I very much enjoyed her presence. Since Charisma was apparently pregnant, I want to know how different the original storyline was supposed to be. I think they made it work to the best of their abilities. And because I had heard so many times that she was "fired", I totally expected her to die in the season finale. So, she won't be a regular anymore? This I'm not sure I like. If they knew Charisma wasn't going to be back as a series regular they should have just killed her off here, instead of her just being in a coma throughout Season 5. They definitely have waned my interest in the character by her just not actually being in the show anymore.

That brings me to Jasmine. I loved the way Season 3's main arc events were connected to this, and the fact that even from Darla's pregnancy it tied. But, you'd think the end to this great, big villain would be a lot more climactic. Jasmine's end is probably one of the best definition of anticlimax. I don't rally care all that much because I loved the season finale, but still. Gina Torres rocked it though, so fantastic.

Now we come to Lilah. The Wesley/Lilah arc is one of my favorite things the show has done to this point, and her death was so, so sad. She will be missed. I'm also glad Fred/Gunn ended sort of subtly and naturally. I wasn't a huge fan of 4.05 because I thought the writing for Fred was too out-of-character in the way it was executed, but what came out of it was really great.

Now Connor. I actually really like the way the writers wrote him. It was never going to work out, and his ending in 4.22 is really great. However, Vincent Kartheiser really does just make all of his characters unlikable to a degree that the writers don't intend. I'm not particularly a fan of his and I think he prevents the characters he plays from being, well, better. This is the case in Mad Men, where he can be good and sometimes suits his character, but where I think a better actor would make more justice to the role. The same goes for him here. The same facial expressions, the same attitude. People need to stop casting him.

But yes, overall a really entertaining season with problems that in the end didn't seem to bother me all that much. 3.08-3.15 is a truly fantastic run of episodes, probably the show's best. And while the season finale's Wolfram and Hart events seem too much like an excuse for the show, ehh, I don't mind at all.
