When Angel turns into his demon self and attacks the guard, a close-up shot shows him tear the man's leg off at the knee. Immediately after, in a wide shot (where the other guards ride away), his legs are both clearly intact. Another shot of the body later shows the leg missing. See more »

Do I put out some kind of Com-Shuk-me vibe? You'd tell me, right?

Do I put out some kind of Com-Shuk-me vibe? You'd tell me, right? - Definitely my favorite Pylean-episode. Seems like all the best scenes of Pylea were in this one. I loved the introduction of 'Groo', he and 'Cordy' were really cute together. We also got to see Joss Whedon dance as 'Numfar' which was GREAT fun. And 'Angel' met 'Fred', great chemistry between those two. I think I liked 'Fred' the most during the pylean-arc, she was so cute and innocent and crazy. The episode ends with 'Cordy' getting threatened by the evil priests by showing her 'Lorne's bodyless head. Great episode, loved the music. Kinda fairytale-ish. FRED: The portal! She fell through the portal!. ANGEL: Who did?. FRED: That other girl. I couldn't save her. I was arrested. They got her. She's a slave. She'll die! ANGEL: Oh. Cordy. No, she's fine. They made her a princess. FRED: They... Really? Oh. When I got here they... They didn't do that. (10 out of 10)
