    BLIND DATE



    The Good;



    Lindsay's dilemma and Angel's solution to it. The final battle. Best of all though has to be Gunn's entrance to WR&H, one day he'll have a very different persepctive. The mind-reader line up is also a winner.



    The Bad;



    Would WR&H really be so forgiving of Lindsey?



    Best line:



    Cordy; "Are you telling me self-mutilating psycho assassin chick reached enlightenment?"



    Jeez, how did they get away with that?



    Angel shows remarkably little sympathy for Lindsey's story of his dead sibling but then he was from an age where most kids didn't make it out of infancy. Killing Lee is horrible, scumbag though he is, even Lilah has a horrified reaction to it, suggesting the woman beneath the mask.

    Kinky dinky:

    Lee asks Lindsey does he find the assassin sexy, you get the impression they both do



    Captain Subtext;

    Holland really does treat Lindsey like he's his son or something.



    Know the face, different character; 2



    Parking garages;

    4,



    Buffy characters on Angel; 11, Cordy talks to Willow here but we don't see her. She says hello to Wes, AH and AD having just married

    Wetherby, Collins and Smith. Angel, Cordy, Oz, Spike, Buffy, Wes, Faith, Darla



    Questions and observations;

    Vanessa Brewer is actually played by CC's stunt double, always nice when that happens (LL's stunt double on Xena would go on to play a recurring characters in the show). This also marks the entrance of the great Sam Anderson as Holland. Angel kills another human and has very little remorse about doing so, very different from Buffy. The scroll refers to the 'vampire with the soul', obstensibly Angel but by season 5 maybe Spike too?



    Marks out of 10; 8/10, good ep
