    The 90s/00s was filled with interesting attempts to keep will they or won’t they couples apart. This is one of the more blunt. One ascends to heaven the other is condemned to the underworld. It’s pretty frustrating storytelling. It doesn’t make me want to see them get together. It just makes me irritated at the writers for contriving such a bizarre separation.

    Each side of the story is in itself frustrating too. The lack of investigation into Cordelia’s demonic evolution leaves this feeling empty and silly. While Connor’s hatred for Angel keeps his character permanently stalled. He won’t grow until he learns the truth and when he does he will simply transfer his angst and feelings of betrayal from his biological father to his adoptive one.

    The choice of watery grave felt like Wolfram & Hart’s idea. I hope that’s the case because it seems far too elaborate for Connor or Justine to have come up with. The guy has been in our world for a week and already he knows how to use an electric drill? And how come he doesn’t have a British accent? Oh never mind.

    Season 3 finale time – I feel bad for Connor been manipulated into been a tool for Holtz’s revenge on Angel but this kid needs a personality NOW! Finally – Cordy knows she’s in love with Angel. Too bad, she still couldn’t work it out for herself. I was really surprised by Lorne’s decision to leave. I thought he would’ve stuck around to find a way to prove to Connor that not all demons are bad. Cordy, what are you doing trusting Skip? Glad to see her make a decision to take on her higher power without consulting Angel on what she should do but bad move Cordy. Skip might be her demon guide but I can’t believe she trusted him. How did she and the gang not spend any time researching him after she was made part-demon? Poor Angel, sunk to the bottom of the sea. Does anyone believe Connor came up the plan to trap Angel in the box, seal it shut and dump him in the ocean? Or did we skip a scene with Justine listing off vengeful non-killing ways for Connor to choose from? I loved Fred & Gunn’s couple-moments at the drive-in and at the end all alone in the hotel. Wonder how long it will take them to realize everyone’s gone and what it will take to get Angel & Cordy back.

    Season 3 as a whole was a lot stronger than the two previous seasons for me. It had its ups and downs like all other series but the decision to bring Darla back pregnant with Angel’s kid, allowing Angel to raise him before Connor was stolen from him was a good move as far as setting the series up with a season-long story. Onwards and upwards to season four right…or not!
