You gotta do what you can to protect your family. I learned that from my father
4 June 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

You gotta do what you can to protect your family. I learned that from my father - One of the strongest and most significant episodes of the season, if not the entire series. One of the main reasons I loved it was that it linked to the Season 3 arc of 'The father will kill the son', after basically a season that had tried to ignore the first Four. Another obvious reason for me was 'Connor', he had always been a favorite of mine so I was great to see him back on the show, even though it was a completely different character. 'Wesley's character was also very intriguing, he's fantastic chemistry with 'Illyria' and then breaking the glass which returned the lost memories. The Connor/Sahjhan fight scene was also excellent, mixed humor with kick-ass violence! I'm also quite a big fan of 'Cyvus', he managed to be creepy, interesting and still slightly humorous, I wish we would have seen more of him. 'Origin' was a very necessary episode that finally dealt with the 'Connor'-issue I waited for almost a season and once again brought the greatness in 'Angel's character. ILLYRIA: I'd like to keep Spike as my pet. ANGEL: Connor, this is Spike and Illyria. Guys, this is Connor. CONNOR: Hi. Um...I like your outfit. ILLYRIA: Your body warms. This one is lusting after me. CONNOR: Oh... no, I.. I.. It's just that.. it's the outfit. I guess I've always had a thing for older women. ANGEL: They were supposed to fix that... (10 out of 10)
