Sorry for the audio quality, y’all, I’m on the road.
One good episode and one disappointing one.
Let’s face it, as much as I like Oz, his relationship with Willow is not satisfying on a narrative level. So this is actually a good way to get Oz off the show. And I totally called it. Veruca is a werewolf.
The show also seems to have realized that you don’t need everyone in the show to have something to do. Buffy, Xandar, and Giles make appearances that serve the plot, but they don’t overstay their welcome. This is progress, we’re not wasting time from the plot we care about, which makes a much more solid episode.
As for Angel, I’ve been thirsty for some more Kate, but not like this, not painting feelings as a weakness and brutality as a virtue.
