Wow, You look half-dead. Which for someone, who's completely dead, would be, kind of neat?
27 March 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Wow, You look half-dead. Which for someone, who's completely dead, would be, kind of neat? - I watched this episode for the first time on DVD, I was afraid that I would not like the rest of the season because of 'Doyle's death and 'Wesley's arrival but I was so pleasantly surprised, it was everything I wanted this show to be, flashbacks and vampire issues and don't forget about the character development and the chemistry between them. This episode changes a lot of things, 'Doyle' is now officially dead as Alexis Denisof replaced Glenn Quinn on the intro. And the 'Kate' character finally discovers 'Angel's vampiric background. Despite it's darkness the 'Cordy' character always brings some great comedy to the show like the scene where 'Wes' told her that their boss might have turned into 'Angelus' again - You stake him and I'll cut his head off. I'm also a huge sucker for vampire characters 'Penn' who is played by Jeremy Renner is one of my favorite one-episode character, he did a great job playing the twisted and clichéd vampire that was trained by 'Angel' for 200 years. I love the end when 'Kate' puts a huge stake through 'Angel' without dusting him but dusting 'Penn' instead. 'Wes' might not be as lovely as 'Doyle' yet, but the character-dynamics are still there, and I loved 'Angel's conversation with 'Cordy' at the end - I'll kill you dead - Thanks - What are friends for?. PENN: Well, you were right about one thing, Angelus. The last 200 years has been about me sticking it to my father. But I've come to realize something, it's you! You made me! You taught me! You approved of me in ways my mortal father never did! You are my real father, Angelus. ANGEL: Fine! You re grounded. (10 out of 10)
