Did You Know?


Angel and Gunn question a man in a comic book store. When they throw him against a stand of comics he says that they're "crushing the Dark Horses," referencing Dark Horse Comics, the company that publishes the "Buffy" and "Angel" comics. Before leaving the store, Angel is also seen reading a comic book with the Dark Horse logo visible on the cover. See more »


Angel: No more lies.

Fred in the spotlight
15 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews


The Good; Angel versus the demon and all the Wes and Lilah stuff

The Bad; Surely the Prof can think of a less public way to get rid of Fred? All told this is a pretty damn stupid ep

Best line: Angel (to demon who keep's fighting despite having been decapitated) "Come on, I'm holding your head"

Jeez, how did they get away with that? Apocalypses: 5

Angel Clichés In disguise; 8

DB get's his shirt off; 12

Cheap Angel; 5

Fang Gang in bondage: Cordy: 5 Angel: 12 Wes: 6 Gunn; 4 Lorne; 4 Fred; 2

Fang gang knocked out: Cordy: 12 Angel: 15 Wes: 5 Doyle; 1 Gunn; 1 Lorne; 4 Groo; 1

Kills: 1 vamp for CC, 1 demon for Angel and one human for Gunn Cordy: 6 vamps, 3 demons Angel; 41 vamps, 58 and 1/2 demons, 8 humans Doyle; 1 vamp Wes; 12 demons+3 vamps, 2 humans Kate; 3 vamps Faith; 16 vamps, 6 demons, 3 humans. Gunn; 11 vamps+ 12 demons+ one human. Groo; 1 demon Fred; 3 vamp+ 1 demon Connor; 8 vamps and 2 demon

Fang Gang go evil: Cordy: 2 Angel: 2 Gunn; 1 Wes; 1

Alternate Fang Gang: Cordy: 3 Angel: 9 Fred; 1

Characters killed: 46

Recurring characters killed; 8;

Total number of Angel Investigations: Angel, Gunn, Fred, Lorne

Angel Investigations shot: Angel: 11 Wes; 1

Packing heat; Wes; 6 Doyle; 1 Angel; 3 Gunn; 1

Notches on Fang Gang bedpost: Cordy: 4 ?+Wilson/Hacksaw Beast+Phantom Dennis+Groo Angel: 5; Buffy, Darla and The Transcending Furies Wes; 3; Virginia, the bleached blonde and Lilah Gunn; 1 Fred Fred; 1 Gunn Groo; 1Cordy

Kinky dinky: Connor remarks that CC steals the bedcovers much to Angel's distress. Gunn mentions that Fred kept him up all night and was unstoppable.

Captain Subtext; Lorne calls Angel 'sweetie' when he brings him breakfast in bed. Whilst Connor refuses to bring Cordy any pics of Angel he's fine with everyone else, even Lorne.

Know the face, different character; 4

Parking garages; yep, if I were Lilah I'd just take a taxi every night 6,

Buffy characters on Angel; 16 Wetherby, Collins and Smith. Angel, Cordy, Oz, Spike, Buffy, Wes, Faith, Darla, Dru, The Master, Anne, Willow and Harmony

Questions and observations; Really not good, silly plot and although there's some powerful emotional stuff really far below par. First time we ever see CC's parents. Now when we see Angel recreate the conference room scene at the Hyperion is that just a photographic memory or a spell he casts? Love the satire on the Angel fans, Angel referring to the 'chatty rooms'. Love Fred's Ripley moment, "I'm the bitch!".

Marks out of 10; 6/10 and maybe that's generous
