  • Great concept and slick execution makes for a pivotal episode in the Angel universe.

    This is the episode that puts Wolfram & Hart on the map.

    Previous lawyer scumbag, Lindsay, seeks the help of Angel Investigations when he gets wind that an evil client of his is going to kill some children. The gang teams up with the crooked lawyer to put a stop to a blind assassin working for Wolfram & Hart.

    It's always fun to see bad guys working with the good guys to defeat a common enemy. I like the character of 'Lindsay' because actor Christian Kane plays him so well. You hate him because he's a slick-talking lawyer who is well-aware he represents evil, but then you find yourself a bit torn because underneath the expensive suit lies traces of a soul. The banter between him and the gang is humorous. The blind assassin is also a great villain for the series. The creepy, chalk-white eyes are very unnerving, and her emotionless demeanor adds to her overall evilness. The fight sequences are top-notch and creative.

    This episode is also pivotal because it reinforces Wolfram & Hart as the heartless bastards that they are, and that they'll be hanging around for awhile giving Angel and the team a lot of grief. Also, Angel's discovery of the scroll in Wolfram & Hart's vault is crucial to the series. Exceptional episode.
