    I thought there were an odd series of choices here.

    We spend half the episode with Connor but he only gets the briefest of character sketches. It felt like we got to know Sunny better than him.

    Connor was brought up to be self sufficient and hate Angel. That’s it. The producers spent a lot of money on filming in interesting locations and doing slo-mo action scenes for little reward.

    It’s hard to make us feel real emotion for a baby that aged years in a month of our time. But I think a show like Lost would have found a way to draw out Connor’s pain. Instead he came across a little like Gru or Fred. Someone from another dimension who is confused about modernity and must learn to trust Angel.

    I know I was underwhelmed with his return on first watch. But now that I’ve seen a show like “Lost” make silly sounding sci-fi so moving I think this struggles even more.

    The Price:

    – I agree with you guys that it felt weird when Juice Guy died. This is at least the second time that the writers have done this “joke” in the opening sequence, after Provider.

    – “Ha ha! Angel and Company are so incompetent that some guy who needed their help died in agony! Ha ha ha!”

    – I had forgotten all about this episode, so I was surprised how good it was. I think more shows should lower expectations with terrible-sounding summaries.

    A New World:

    – I really liked any time Angel was speaking, and couldn’t care any less about anything else. It’s a tall order to make us care about a sulky teenager with mysterious secrets, and I don’t.

    – Well, I also kind of liked the Wes and Lilah scene, even if Lilah did lay it on a little thick at the end. “Who was that at the end of the Inferno? Who was it? I can’t . . . quite . . . remember . . .” I can’t see Lilah turning Wes – he doesn’t seem like the type to go evil, no matter how resentful he is. Plus, if they made him the big bad for Season Four, he’d just be a slightly scarier Holtz.
