"Orpheus" (Angel 4.15)

One of the best episodes ever.

trijinx, i know you squealed when they had the Angelus laugh at the beginning.

Ooh, nice twist with the Angelus-turning-Faith situation. And this Orpheus drug thing, tranceballerina, you were totally thinking Ecstasia with me, right?

Well of course we were gonna call "the only living person ever to re-ensoul Angel." And dude, Fred and Willow were so slashable. (For the record, i've had an unwritten Willow/Fred NC-17 post-"Seeing Red" comfort fic in my head for ages.) And then at the end, "I'm seeing someone." !!! Fred is so bi.

I had more to say i thought.

I really liked the meshing of old Willow (Wes was really right that she seemed the same while he had changed a lot) with black-eyed Willow (and woot! now she knows she can handle major mojo).

Aw, Connor did a turnaround on the Faith-doing-magic-is-bad thing. He gets that whole taking risks, dying in battle thing.

And tranceballerina, i know you screamed with delight when Faith woke up. The bitch is back.

I liked that they managed to have the Willow-Cordy battle without Cordy being revealed as evil. Though obviously the end scene shows that the charade is nearly up. (Hello Cordy, Mistress of the Dark.)
