Angel 4.14 ("Release")

Not much to say, but one thing i was struck by how both Slayers now have rejected darkness as a means of fighting the Big Bad. I thought Buffy chose wrongly, but i think Faith chose rightly. And interesting to see Buffy's inability to kill Angelus after he first turned paralleled in Faith's refusal to dust him thanks to what he did for her (though if the plan is to turn him back, i was thinking when she was whaling on him that she should pull out a pair of handcuffs and they should chain/cage him up in the basement until they figure out how to restore his soul -- i mean, do they have some sort of plan, other than "fight Angelus but don't dust him, LatherRinseRepeat" ? )

And i think my favorite line was "You're preaching to the guy who ate the choir."

And next week's episode is of course going to kick all sorts of ass.
