  1. Joseph says :

    Lineage: The cyborg ninjas always take me out of the episode, but I kind of like the twist at the end. It’s one more “screw you” from the universe to Wesley. He feels deeply guilty about deciding to shoot his father, he has all these feelings to unpack to the man, and his father’s still alive, but Wesley can’t bring himself to have an honest conversation with his father, and he knows it wouldn’t help if he did. His father’s alive now, but he’s not going to live forever, and Wesley knows that they’ll almost certainly never repair their relationship. Screw you Wesley, signed: The Universe.

    Destiny: This episode gets carried by Spike’s charisma, but there’s really not much else there. The fight goes on for 47 of the show’s 48 minutes, but instead of getting more intense, it just gets increasingly boring the longer it goes on.

    And Spike is a giant self-deluded tool. Angel didn’t ruin your personality, you bloody git – you were a murderous sack of crap before he slept with Dru, and that’s what you were afterward. You’re projecting your disappointment in your weird mother-lover fantasy onto Angel so that you can keep Dru on a pedestal. Go get some therapy, or start posting on red pill blogs.

    And Fred and Eve? You can both shut up. Eve doesn’t deserve to be choked, but “I’m not the bad guy” doesn’t fly when you (a) work for the senior partners and (b) sneak around all the time being snarky and evil, so stop being nice to her, Fred. OK, Eve, I realize you’re setting the foundation for your big reveal, but believe me, I didn’t feel any better about you after I saw that.

    Finally, Angel is a mopey, boring tool. He’s too boring for me to properly insult, and I don’t care that he’s lost his way and is in an existential crisis AGAIN. If his epiphany and Los Hermanos Numeros can’t help him, I doubt anything can, and I don’t care. If only he had some incredibly boring arch-nemesis to balance him out. Oh, wait – maybe he does! Bum bum bum!

    But seriously, it was a lot of fun to watch Spike, and I liked Harmony. Well, I liked Sirk too. 68/100.
