This child, Angel, it's the one good thing we ever did together. The only good thing
10 March 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This child, Angel, it's the one good thing we ever did together. The only good thing - One of the best season three episodes, and that is saying something. Truthfully, this is the episode that truly got me hooked onto the show, when it originally aired on the dutch television I had seen 10 episodes from season one and two from the entire second season (Reunion and Reprise), I had not seen all that much from 'Darla' but even so, she was my favorite TV character back then and thanks to Julie Benz I became obsessed with this show and have ever been since this episode. Like I said, Julie Benz performance blew me away and left me devastated when she staked herself to prevent her unborn child from dying, damn, and I was hoping for her to become a regular. But at least her character came full-circle by delivering a child and loving it completely. I think she redeemed herself and apparently became an angel of some sort as you can see in season 4's 'Inside Out'. She'll always be remembered for her witty dialog - I promise I won't throw anyone out of the car. Not while it's moving. Another character I loved was 'Lilah Morgan', big surprise there, she is just so much fun - I'm a lawyer. I don't care about the law. My favorite scene besides Darla's sacrifice was the flashback of 'Holtz' finding his wife dead and little girl turned into a vampire, I felt his sorrow and anger the moment he throws her into the sunlight and watches her burn to ashes, Keith Szarabajka plays him perfectly with that low scary voice. The scene of 'Angel' holding his new-born baby while raining was beautiful. 'Holtz' let him go when he could have finished him just because he figured out a way on how to fulfill his evil revenge. DARLA: What do I have to offer a child, a human child, besides ugly death? ANGEL: ...Darla. DARLA: You know it's true. ANGEL: No. What I do know is that you love this baby, our baby. You've bonded with it. You've spent nine months carrying it, nourishing it... DARLA: No. No, I haven't been nourishing it. I haven't given this baby a thing. I'm dead. It's been nourishing me. These feelings that I'm having, they're not mine. They're coming from it. ANGEL: You don't know that. DARLA: Of course I do! We both do. Angel, I don't have a soul. It does. And right now that soul is inside of me, but soon, it won't be and then... ANGEL: Darla... DARLA: I won't be able to love it. I won't even be able to remember that I loved it. I want to remember. (10 out of 10)
