  • Here's Wes

    7.0
    The Good;

    Wonderful reintroduction for Wes and a nice period of mourning for Doyle. Plus Cordy's audition and the Oracles again.



    The Bad;

    Once again, Alexis Denisoff's name is in the titles, ruining the suprise a little



    Best line:

    "Grass stains!" (all in the delivery). Also liked Wes "I bet you always wondered what became of your old pal Wesley?"

    Angel; "Tell you the truth I never gave it much thought"



    Jeez, how did they get away with that?

    Barney's plans for Cordy are beyond horrible. But she teaches him not to mess with Queen C

    Wes: 1

    Doyle; 1



    Kills:

    Cordy: none this ep. 3 vamps, a demon from her time in Sunnydale

    Angel: 1 demon for Angel. So that gives Angel 8 vamps, 4 demons, 2 humans.

    Doyle; 1 vamp

    Angel: 1;Buffy



    Kinky dinky:

    Wes in motorbiking leathers which are so tight they 'chafe'. He and Cordy share a second kiss, Cordy is sold as a slave for the first time.



    Captain Subtext;



    Know the face, different character; 2



    Parking garages;

    2



    Guantanamo Bay;

    Buffy characters appearing in Angel; (unless someone can correct me no original Angel character ever appears on Buffy?)

    6; Angel, Cordy, Oz, Spike, Buffy, Wes



    Questions and observations;

    Another WR&H lackie but this one doesn't become a recurring character. Angel says that vamps don't sleep in coffins but Dracula does. Angel recognises talent when he sees it, Wes' translation skills alone make him invaluable.
