Lorne in the spotlight
30 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Even though this episode was a bit corny, it was still pretty enjoyable. Lorne on a billboard, The Lornettes, Angel knowing all the past figures in Vegas. Even series with a darker aspect to it like Angel have to have an episode once in a while that's a little slapstick. Still though, the episode still had its "Angelesque" side to it be because of what was happening to Lorne. Being held prisoner and forced to read people so someone could steal their destinies. Vegas not being everything that Lorne thought it would. My favorite parts definitely had to be ones involving Wes and Fred. Fred looked so damn hot dressed up as a Lornette. She always looked good but this was an extra nice visual. Wesley on the phone with Lilah was classic. We already knew that their relationship was dirty but for them to basically be having phone sex made it even more so. All in all, a different episode than usual but still enjoyable.
