    The writers paced this episode poorly. The setup took far too long so that when the gang were all under Lorne’s influence there wasn’t time to enjoy them acting strangely. They quickly realised something was wrong and solved it with little sweat. With a few tweaks this could have been more fun.

    This was kind of a forgettable episode, and I feel like I’ve already forgotten parts of it, or maybe there just wasn’t much there in the first place.

    I don’t think the episode did a good job convincing me this party was important to anyone but Lorne, particularly if it’s not a big deal that Lorne killed a few clients. And is the sleep removal theory (a) a devious plan by Wolfram and Hart, (b) simple incompetence by the sleep removal technicians, who have a book right there telling them not to do it, or (c) simple incompetence by the writers?

    I like the Wesley plot, though. He’s still pining for Fred, but somehow, being supportive and pining quietly is more effective than whatever it was he was doing last season.

    Highlights of this episode include the lovely Andy Hallett singing up a storm at the beginning, the fact that Lorne finally got his own episode and that about covers it. It wasn’t the best storyline with the Halloween party and the gang not supporting Lorne and it went downhill quickly the moment hulk-Lorne turned up to be the episode villain. I didn’t mind them bringing back the triangle now involving Fred, Wesley & Knox. Wes can’t catch a break with Fred but he handles it a lot better this time. The gang all been too busy to be interested in Lorne’s party seems exactly the reason why they were brought to W&H – to distract and isolate them. And can you blame them for not wanting to mingle at a party with a bunch of demons? Angel and Eve’s hook up wasn’t really a surprise but seemed more like the writers proving that the curse won’t come into play and they can now turn Angel into a romantic interest for any other female character in the series (except Fred ’cause Wes doesn’t need more competition).
