One of my favorite episodes
24 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Reunion" really is a turning point for the series. It changes everything that comes after it. This is the episode that really shows Angel's dark side, sets Wesley on his path as a team leader and reestablishes the power structure at Wolfram and Hart. If you're watching the show, you can't skip "Reunion."

"Reunion" revolves around Dru and Darla. Dru has re-vamped Darla. Angel is desperate to find them before Darla can be reborn as a vampire. He, Cordy, Wes and Gunn work to try and track them down. But Angel's obsessive, dark mood is worrying the crew. Meanwhile, Lindsey, Holland and Lila are helping Dru ready for the birth of her "daughter." Dru has buried Darla and is just waiting for her to rise. Angel arrives and attacks Dru, but while they fight Darla wakes up. Angel nearly stakes Darla, but then he looks at her and can't. She and Dru escape. Angel is distraught over his failure to "save" Darla. He blames Wolfram and Hart.

Now that she's a vampire again, Darla's looking to a little fun in LA. She and Dru rampage through the city killing shop keepers and drivers who annoy them. Angel breaks into Wolfram and Hart and confronts Holland about re-vamping Darla. But Holland says that he doesn't care about the deaths that Darla and Dru may cause. Angel is arrested for attacking Holland, while Wolfram and Hart celebrates. Holland holds a wine tasting party at his house. Kate lets Angel go when she realizes that he is the only one who can stop Darla and Dru.

Meanwhile, Dru and Darla head to Holland's house. They corner all the lawyers in the wine cellar and begin threatening them. Angel arrives and sees that Dru and Darla are planning to kill the humans. Holland and Lila ask him to protect them. Angel says that he doesn't care if they die and slowly closes the doors to the cellar. Then he locks Dru and Darla in with the lawyers and walks away. Darla and Dru kill most of the lawyers. Wes, Cordy and Gunn are horrified when Angel tells them what he's done. Angel calmly fires his crew and continues down his dark path alone.

There are some great parts to this episode. You just have to laugh as Wes tries to explain Dru to Gunn. "So wait, the granddaughter is giving birth to the grandmother?" I just love Darla and Dru terrorizing LA together. From shopping for new clothes, to fighting with Angel, to killing those lawyers, they're just so great. I especially like Drusilla dancing around to her ringing cell phone. She has trouble adjusting to the modern world. In fact, she's not even clear on what century it is. And it's neat that so much of the back story from season two of BTVS plays into this episode. Dru sings the same songs she did over on BTVS and talks to the stars, just like she did in Sunnydale. Angel finds her, in part, because he remembers that she loves gardens and flowers. It just fits together really well. Finally, I love, love, LOVE Angel locking those lawyers in the wine cellar. I SO didn't see that coming. Angel's always such a champion. He usually does heroic things, even when he doesn't necessarily want to, because he just a good, sweet guy. Now, suddenly, he goes back to the uncaring, hard ass Angel that we saw in "Are You Now or Have You Even Been." The Angel who walked out of the Hyperion and let the paranoia demon eat all the guests, is back here in "Reunion." Even Dru and Darla are shocked that he leaves them alone with the lawyers. And Wes, Cordy and Gunn are horrified by his actions. But Angel's too far to listen to them now. It's just really a cool twist for Angel's character.

On the down side, Dru's in town and nobody even mentions Spike? Granted Spike's my favorite character in the Buffyverse and, if it were up to me, people would be talking about him all the time. But, it just seems weird that nobody so much as says his name when Dru arrives. Not even Darla asks where he is and she wasn't in on the whole Spike-siding-with-Buffy-about-the-Acathla-demon thing in season two of BTVS, so she doesn't know about Dru and Spike's subsequent breakup. Now, if I was Darla and I wanted revenge on Angel, Spike would be the first person I called. Logically, I guess that Spike can't come to "Angel," since he's busy becoming a pseudo-good guy over on BTVS this season, falling in love with Buffy and helping the Scoobies. I mean, which side would Spike even fight on out in LA: Dru and Darla's or Angel's? Still, it seems strange that nobody brings him up, even in passing. Luckily, Dru will head to Sunnydale later in the season to reunite with Spike in the BTVS episode, "Crush."

My favorite part of the episode: Angel "helping" that kid who was contemplating a sacrificial suicide.
