  • Sins of the Father

    This was a very good episode for those of us who wanted to get more of a glimpse into the dynamic of Angels relationship with his Father. They didn't have much of one; his Father thought Angel (Liam) was pretty much a loser. Angel was the typical rebellious layabout who did what he could to prove his father right. We also got to compare/contrast that relationship with Kate and her Father. Kate did everything she could to make her Father proud, never faltering, and he still couldnt say a kind word to her. We do find out he was looking out for her future, but he was doing it illegally. Angel's Father dies at his hand after he was turned. Kates Dad also dies at the hand of a vampire, and Angel tried in vain to save him. Their relationship is never the same after this.
