A little subdued
27 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was meant to be the second of a two part episode, and it was coupled with the "Five by Five" story. After seeing the prior Angel episode "Five By Five", this was by comparison subdued, especially because Eliza Dushku was not called upon to deliver the same powerful performance that she delivered in the prior episode. The character Faith who was a catalyst in Five by Five, seemed to go through this episode in shock or perhaps deep in thought.

On the positive side, this story shows Angel's philosophy of helping to save souls and that helping save souls is more important than anything else to Angel, including friendships, co-workers and former lovers. This episode also delivers tremendous suspense in that numerous people are out to ruin the work that Angel's efforts to help Faith Lehane, including Buffy, The Watcher Council and the Police, not to mention there is a possibility that Faith herself will ruin it.

I have watched this one about 4 or 5 times and still like the ending, despite knowing it so well.
