Learning those visions even enter Buffy's dreams, focusing on sex with her to lose his soul and then killing her, Giles agrees to do research as Angel desperately begged him; he is helped by Buffy and Xander, for whom Christmas is a nightmare of lacking any family celebration. They find that Angel is tormented by the Bringers or Harbingers of Death, the three high-priests of the First Evil, older then demons and incorporeal, and Buffy finds the mark of its residence. Angel can't stand the fear of giving in to temptation at the price of her life and resolves to commit suicide by sunrise, Buffy's pleading to make him ... Written by KGF Vissers

Best Ep
17 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Arguably the best Buffy episode, it takes so many great turns and really confronts major issues in the Buffy/Angel plot line. The "hauntings" by the first are actually creepy and work well. But, this entire episode hinges on the climatic and emotionally charged ending. The immense acting that occurs is breathtaking and tearworthy. Just a beautiful message. You know, this comment is worthless and a waste of time. Just watch the episode and you'll understand how great it is. Never doubt the power of well written Buffy. Watch it! WATCH IT! What did i tell you? Stop reading. Go to your DVD collection. Grab Buffy: Season three, put in the disc, and WATCH IT!
