The One Where Angel Tries To Save Darla...
29 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this episode. It shows, that even when someone is really bad, mean, selfish, rude, deadly and above all, evil, person, that they still can be saved. Even if they shouldn't.

In this episode, we learn that just because Darla came back from the dead, doesn't mean that she's out of trouble. Since she has reverted back to being a human, her illness that was going to kill her in the early 1600s, is still running through her body. It's a little something called syphilis. She was working girl, in the 1600s, you know what that means. Venereal diseases. Even in the late 1950s, it meant venereal diseases.

So, since she's dying, Angel wants to try and save her. For some reason. So he goes on a kind of quest, with trials. Hence the episode title name. He manages to complete the trials, but Darla doesn't get healed, because she has already had a second chance. Coming back from the dead, a few weeks earlier.

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