It's not murder if you say yes
13 June 2007 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

It's not murder if you say yes - One of the most visually stunning episodes of the series and Amy Acker gives one of her most memorable performances. The whole time traveling thing was done brilliantly, with some amazing cinematic scenes and Xmen-esquire writing. My favorite scene is when 'Illyria' kills the entire gang, although I admit that it went too quick for comfort, it was still somewhat shocking. The B-storyline wasn't as amazing, but I think it worked very well, 'Gunn' is back and gets a case about a young woman (Played by Jamie Bergman whom is David Boreanaz' wife) Her baby is going to be sacrificed by some demon cult, 'Angel' gives the child to the demons at the end of the episode which is an important move to the final two episodes. 'Wesley' finds a way to drain out 'Illyria's energy to allow her to live. The episode was quite dramatic too, I loved 'Illyria's last line

  • Touch me and die, vermin. Excellent episode. WESLEY: Does it sting

you... my betrayal? ILLYRIA: Betrayal was a neutral word in my day, as unjudged a word as water or breeze. No. Or perhaps... I am only bothered because I am bothered. WESLEY: That sounds very close to human. ILLYRIA: Motes of dust. Mayflies who die so soon after they're born they might as well not live at all. WESLEY: Now, now. Manners. (10 out of 10)
