Awakening was a really great episode of Angel. I really enjoyed watching this episode because there was a lot of plot development as well as character growth. I thought the story of this episode was excellent and very intriguing. I like how it all seemed to happen over a longer period than it did, and the fact that the gang now has to deal with Angel's darker side. I thought this episode was a clever way to move the season forward. I really can't wait to watch the next episode to see how every one reacts to the return of Angelus!!!!!!!
