    This was similar to “Unleashed.” We got loads of characterisation for a guest star but a pretty dull story. Perhaps it was because Number 5 had to tell his story rather than show it. So the pace slowed a bit too much.

    Also I could never tell how seriously they wanted us to take the Mexican wrestling. It seemed like Number 5 didn’t quite understand how wrestling works when he bragged that they’d never lost a match.

    Loved the reference to Connor, very naturally blended into the conversation.

    I really liked this episode on first watch, but on rewatch, it was a lot more clunky.

    The good: Los Hermanos Numero were weird and awesome and hopefully not racist, because they seemed pretty cool, like they would make for a good Hellboy spin-off comic. I enjoyed the way Wesley said “El Roboto Diobolico” quite a bit. I like Fred more and more now that she’s toned down the quirkiness.

    The less good: Speaking of quirkiness, Spike really annoyed me at this point of first watch and he really annoys me now. I’m interested in his ghost story, and that bit with the 2×4 was effective, but lines like “vamps can’t resist the ruby red” or “you’ve got my old tumble bringing you tasty snacks” sound like the product of a 12 year old fanfic writer.

    Speaking of things that don’t sound plausible, the underlying story about Angel losing faith (again) seemed really clunky, especially Spike popping in to Wesley’s office to exposit that Angel has lost faith in the shansu followed by Wesley telling Angel how very important it is that Angel believe in the prophesy, when most of the viewers have also lost interest.

    i like mythology and prophesies as well as anyone, but in this case, who cares? Angel has already played a pivotal role in a few apocalypses, between Jasmine’s, giving Buffy the amulet, and a few others on Buffy, and he’s gotten to be human in I Still Remember You and turned it down. Now there’s a second vampire with a soul, so the prophesy could mean any of a dozen things, so who cares? Just keep being a good person and wait to see what happens, just like everybody else.

    As much as I love Lorne, this was the worst! And “Hulk” Lorne? Ugh, I can’t even…
