It’s time for some more Buffyverse.
We get the return of two blasts from the pasts- Faith is awake, and fucking shit up. I’m not big on the Adam storyline- he’s just not compelling enough of a villain. But add to that drama the pressure of Faith around a fucking shit up, the show gets that much more tense.
As for Angel, the interesting part of this episode is the flashbacks. We get to see how Darla changed Angel and how he took care of his family. The present-day stuff is rather unnecessary, but it’s pretty good (though Bitches disagrees). This is the Kate I want to see, hard-edged, takes no shit. Even in the face of her father’s getting killed she still shows no fear. A proto-Debra Morgan.
