Angel's night of fleshly passion with Buffy has transformed him again into the super-vampire Angelus, without a soul, who teams up with Spike, Drusilla and the assembled demon Judge, offering to eliminate Buffy with love. Willow is shocked to see Xander kiss Cordelia and turns to fellow nerd (but band member) Oz. Just sensing Angel doesn't truly love her back devastates Buffy, seeing him turned vampire again reduces her to useless tearfulness, then makes Giles's lady-friend Janna 'Jenny' Calendar, who clearly knew something, tell about Angel's soul-curse, while angel turns to her gypsy Uncle Enyos. Meanwhile Xander works rather literally on the line 'it took a army' to defeat the Judge... Written by
Did You Know?
Angel turning bad after sleeping with Buffy was one of the solutions the writing team came up with to counter the potential Sam and Diane fall-out that often happens in TV shows when two leading characters finally get together. (The general consensus is that Cheers
(1982) took a nosedive once Sam and Diane became lovers.) See more
While Angel wears his claddagh ring the correct way, Buffy wears it wrong. Traditionally, the ring should be worn on the right hand facing out to show one is single and facing in to show one is taken, and on the left hand facing out to show engagement and facing in to show marriage. The way Buffy wears hers implies marriage. If claddagh rings come from Angel's people, he should know this. See more
