Goofs

"Anne" has been mentioned many times in the Buffy- and Angel-verses as being the same character as "Chanterelle" and "Lily." When "Lily" took over Buffy's alternate identity, she assumed the name "Anne." As "Chanterelle," she had already encountered Angel, yet when the characters meet again, they appear to be meeting for the first time, as neither appears to have any memory or knowledge of the other.

We don't need you. You walked away, do us a favor and just stay away
26 April 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

We don't need you. You walked away, do us a favor and just stay away - Better than the previous two episodes, but I still miss 'Darla' too much, her episodes were so much stronger. But this episode has zombie cops, zombies are always fun, especially when they get to hurt the main cast. One of the zombies shot 'Wesley' which was great fun. I also loved the scene where the zombies try to get into 'Anne's shelter and kill everyone, intense! Only thing that drags this episode a bit down was some poor acting of the guest stars and the special effects could also have gotten some more work. But nevertheless, it was a great horror episode that also developed 'Angel's character a bit as he is starting to feel bad for fiering his crew, I loved the scene where 'Cordy' told him to say away, she had all the right. It was also good to see 'Kate' back, I feel sorry for her character, especially in the next two episodes. KATE: I guess you never caught up with your vampire friends in time. ANGEL: I did track them down later and set them on fire. KATE: Sounds like you enjoyed it. But then again, the whole murder and mayhem thing's always been right up your alley. ANGEL: If that's how you feel, I guess this isn't the best time to tell you, I just killed a cop. KATE: I wouldn't make a joke about that in this building, no matter how immortal you think you are. ANGEL: Of course, this is the kind of cop that keeps talking even after he's been decapitated. Bet they don't teach you that at the academy. (9.0 out of 10)
