The One Where Lorne Is Held Prisoner...
27 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I really love this episode.

So, as you know, Lorne moved to Las Vegas to become an act at the Tropicana. So the whole gang decides to go pay him a visit. Once they're in his show, Lorne completely ignores them. And gets others to sing. We later find out, when the people are singing, Lorne is actually reading them and finding out their futures and destinies. Then, his boss, tells Lorne to tell him they're futures. If he doesn't, he'll "pink slip" one of his dancers, but pink slip, means kill, not fire. So Lorne tells him three people futures, then those people get chosen to go in a special game. Where the house always wins. They don't lose money, they lose their destinies. And very few ever leave the casino. Angel, eventually gets caught, and forced to play the game. Lots of stuff goes down. But in the end, the destinies were returned, and Lorne went home with his friends.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
