Quotes

Drogyn: It was a Sathari, part of a clan of demon assassins. They fell upon me last night at the Deeper Well. The poison from his four blades wearing heavy on my limbs...
Spike: [cutting him off] Yeah, rousing bit of rah-rah, mate. Get to the goods. Tell them what you told me.
Drogyn: Once I bested him, I tortured the Sathari for hours, until he confessed to me who sent him. It was Angel.
Spike: Tell them why.
Drogyn: He said that Angel was afraid I'd find something in the Deeper Well... something that would uncover the truth about ...

So this whole evil Angel thing has been a big scamola? Hmm. I smell Oscar
29 September 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

So this whole evil Angel thing has been a big scamola? Hmm. I smell Oscar - With only two episodes to go, the show builds up the ultimate series finale. You know, I actually fell for it, I really thought 'Angel' had crossed over to the dark side. And I think he did a bad thing for killing 'Drogyn', but he did it to save the world. Still, it bugged me, poor Drogyn. I love 'Hamilton' - he's badass and kicked the blue bird's flat-ass. Good to see some old faces re-apear as well, like 'Cyvus', 'Lindsey' and 'Nina' who was sleeping with 'Angel'. I loved the end when 'Angel' tells his gang about the plan and about 'Cordy' giving him her visions (Which made the kiss even more meaningful), the last scene gets me teared up every time. DROGYN: Old one... you have no right to walk this Earth. Your time is past. You belong to the well. ILLYRIA: Truly. I wish now I had never been brought out of it. DROGYN: Do You?. ILLYRIA: I don't know. I play this game... it's pointless and annoys me... and yet, I'm compelled to play on. (9.5 out of 10)
