Trivia

Spike's line "Sex with robots is a lot more common than you think" is a likely a reference to Warren's robot girlfriend and his own Buffybot in BTVS. See more »

Quotes

Angel: [trying to comfort Wes after he had to shoot a robot he though was his father] You know... I killed my actual dad. It was one of the first things I did when I became a vampire.
Wesley: I hardly see how that's the same situation.
Angel: Yeah. I didn't really think that one through.
[moments later; Spike appears]
Spike: Don't know if you know this, but, uh, I killed my mum. Actually, I'd already killed her, and then she tried to shag me, so I had to, uh...
Wesley: [looks freaked out] Thank you. I'm... very comforted. Right.

The One Where Wesley Kills His Father, Kind Of...
29 September 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this episode very much. It surprised me in so many ways.

In this episode, Wesley's father comes to visit him, at Wolfram And Heart. Nice right? No. His father is a really mean guy. Never supportive. Nothings ever good enough for him. Etc. And when Wesley's father lets baddies into the building, knocks out his own son, steals an important and ancient artifact, tries to brainwash Angel, with said artifact, and threatens to kill Fred, then Wesley shoots him. But it turns out that his father wasn't his father. It was a hologram robot. So, we don't know where the real father is, or what will happen. And we never do.

Overall, I give this episode a 7 out of 10.
