Angelus: [to Connor] And now my boy's in love, all hearts and flowers. But, doesn't it freak you out that she used to change your diapers? I mean, when you think about it, the first woman you boned is the closest thing you've ever had to a mother. Doin' your mom and tryin' to kill your dad. Hmm, there should be a play.

I wanted to thank you

By far one of my top ten episodes of the entire series. Angelus is such a conniving, sadistic, manipulative SOB. Exposing his side of Angel this time around was so much better than his first appearance in BTVS. Maybe it's because having seen him before, I was intrigued by what he would be like caged up. The best part of bringing Angelus back was how it had contributing factors leading to Fred & Gunn finally breaking up. Gunn & Angel already knew how Wes felt about Fred but for her to hear it really shook things up. Even when she was thanking Wes for saving her, you could see the conflict of emotions in her eyes. They were made even more apparent when Wes finally kissed her by how she pretty much let him and looked almost mesmerized afterward. Deep down she knew that no matter how much she loved Gunn, she couldn't deny that she had deep feelings for Wes. And the fight, G-d did I love the fight. I know I wasn't the only one who wanted to see Wes & Gunn throw down for a very long time. It just didn't last long enough. What annoyed me with the script though was that it seemed like Fred didn't know Wes felt that strongly for her until Angelus commented on it. As far back as the episode 'Billy' in season 3, you could see that she knew when she told Wes that his actions weren't his fault and later heard him crying.

This episode is probably the first time I began to see Connor's character grow. When he made the comment about Angel just being a shell and Angelus is his real father, WOW. Even Angelus looked like he was taken aback for a second hearing those words. The back and forth comments on the shirt looking good, Cordy looking good, and the boning the mother were too perfect. And how he puked when seeing the dead family. No matter how tough Connor tried to be, you could still see an easily irritable and emotional boy in there.

While I was somewhat shocked to see the jug with Angel's soul missing, it wasn't a shock in some way. Why would you make the show interesting by bringing back Angelus and only having him in one episode. This now paved the way for some interesting times ahead.
