    I was impressed with David Boreanaz’ yelling at the end. It was natural and scary sounding.

    Sleep Tight: By the time I got to the end of the episode, I had forgotten all about the Rathers, but now that you mention them, did anyone else feel like the show didn’t establish that they were actually evil? I mean, sure, Wesley says they are, but they seemed pretty harmless.

    Also, in hindsight, I feel like the Loa was deliberately messing with Wesley by predicting that the vampire will “devour” the son instead of killing him. Which seems in character – Wesley warned us the hamburger was bad.

    Thoughts on Forgiving

    I am now fully sick of Justine. She has gone from cipher to irritating in a few short weeks. It’s time for her to be done.

    So why does Sarzyan materialize in the street? Does summoning magic have a sense of humor?

    Okay enough silliness, let’s talk about the best episode ending we’ve seen in a long long time.

    As a relatively new dad(I have a 2 year old daughter) I completely buy what Angel expresses at the end in his wonderfully calm then scary rant at Wes. I’m a pacifist but if anyone kidnapped my my little girl….

    But I think we saw some pretty clear evidence that Angel is going to forgive Wesley. Stay with me here…There is no way a few orderlies should have been able to drag him away from Wesley. That must mean that he let them drag him away. Why would he let them? Unless…

    You may say,he may still kill Wesley later, he just realized he can’t do it with so many people around. He’ll bide his time and strike when there are less consequences.

    I say thee NAY!

    If Angel is so lost in rage and anger that he is willing to attack Wes like this(with Fred and Gunn around, with lots of hospital staff around and his tirade ain’t exactly subtle) then he’s just going to go ahead and do it.

    But he doesn’t do it quick. There are other options to kill Wesley quickly(once he’s properly terrorized), like snapping his neck. Why doesn’t he?

    That must mean…Angel doesn’t really want to kill him.

    I think he only(at least subconsciously) wants to scare Wes nearly to death.

    And for the first time in a while I had to resist letting the next episode play.

    80.

    I thought this was a really good episode. It was a cool twist that Sahjahn was trying to fight his own prophesy, and I thought it was very effective to see Fred and Gunn trying to figure out why Wesley took Connor. For once, Fred’s sugary goodness wasn’t grating, and Gunn’s friendship with both Wes and Angel really showed. And the twist at the end really paid off.

    Now some nitpicks:

    – I thought Fred, Gunn, and Lorne gave Wes too much credit. Even given the prophesy, Wes should have talked to them.

    – Angel promised Linwood that anything that happened to Connor would also happen to Linwood. I know he can’t get to Quortoth, but if he doesn’t at least throw Linwood into a hell dimension, he’s going to lose credibility.

    – Also, I realize he expects it from her, but Lilah also send to deserve a good murdering. She FED HIM HIS OWN SON’S BLOOD AS PART OF A PLAN TO KILL CONNOR. If he doesn’t take revenge for that, his threats are basically dead from here.

    – Last, it seems like it would make sense to give Wes a chance to save Connor, then kill him later. No one is going to be more motivated than Wes, and who knows, maybe he can do it?

    Hi guys,

    Forgiving – Wow what an ending! To the beginning firstly, Fred’s 100% belief that Wes took Connor for a reason wasn’t a complete surprise. She might’ve chosen to be with Gunn but the show still wants to allow Wes to be a bit of a thorn in their side that causes Gunn some jealously despite him also wanting to believe in Wes. Cannot believe Wes spent an entire day lying out in that park bleeding to death and didn’t die. Bad homeless man! Linwood broke too easily for my liking. So now we know who was behind the prophecy – Sahjahn. Makes sense looking back that he was out to save himself and it’s a cool twist that Connor was the one destined to kill him. Wouldn’t it have been better to bring Holtz back before Angel got Darla pregnant to try and prevent that? Especially when W&H brought her back as a human. He must have known about the prophecy when he first met Holtz. Guess he didn’t think of that. Justine deserved more of a beating from Gunn for what she’s done. Wonder what became of Sahjahn’s bottle. Now to that last scene – that was scary and incredibly well acted. Sometimes we forget Angel has a bit of the Angelus darkside in him. So calm and collected and then within a split second, completely different guy. I don’t believe he truly wanted to kill Wes, he could’ve snapped his neck as quickly as Angelus did to Jenny Calendar. Instead he tried to smother him. Scary, yes. But after what Wes did, he still can’t bring himself to kill a human.

    Cheers!

    Cathleen
