Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: You're a soldier, fight-to-the-death kind. I respect that. You work for a man who you think is noble and good. I respect that. Trouble is, he's not.
Justine Cooper: You work with a *vampire*.
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Who, in fact, is noble and good. Quirky, but there it is. Holtz talks about justice, and it's stirring, but what he wants is revenge. He's driven by it, blinded by it, and if you, me, or anyone else gets in his way, he'll kill for it.

Unnecessary messy
29 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

This episode stands out from the rest of the episodes as being unnecessarily complex and far-fetched. I don't think plots like that suits a show like an Angel.

It was too much of "he knows that X wants to Y, while Y thinks Z need T because X can't protect Y, yet Z has no idea that T while S never intended to harm Y bla bla bla". Plots like that just doesn't suit Angel I think.

Maybe I was just not alert when watching it, but this was the first Angel episode I had to make multiple rewinds to understand what was going on. That is usually never necessary in Joss Whedon's series, as he tends to be really good at presenting the reasons for character's action in a nice way so you never go "Why is he doing this??? Huh? What's going on"...
