    The House Always Wins-Angel, Fred and Gunn take a road trip to Las Vegas to enlist Lorne's help in finding Cordelia, but when the get there Lorne doesn't even acknowledge their presence. It soon becomes clear that Lorne is being held against his will, and that his popular casino act is actually a way for his captor to read the futures of people in the crowd. Angel and the gang must find a way to help Lorne escape without sacrificing their own destinies in the process.

    It's very rare when Angel travels outside it's normal settings let alone the city itself! Thankfully, Angel takes full advantage of the luxurious city that is Las Vegas. The cinematography of the city is stunning and all the extras involved are great. It's great to see Lorne again after his short appearance in the season premeire was so vague. The situation his involved is a great one, and the idea of a casino owner stealing the destinies of innocent by standers and selling them in the black market is played well here. Clayton Rohmon is great as Lee DeMarco as tortures and threatens Lorne. There are also some fun scenes like Cordelia helping Angel save the day, although the explaination of why he snapped out of his thrawl was vague. Also there's the scene where Lorne performs in front of the crowd with his Lornettes. Also, seeing Fred was cute in the Lorne make-up. The episode ends with Cordelia suddenly reappearing, yet she has not memory of her friends. All and All, a great setting with solid plot and stunning cinematography.
