Angel 5.19, "Time Bomb"

Tonight's Angel? I approve. Not too much to say about it.

"I am my power." That makes a lot of sense, seems very true, and i'm interested to see what happens to Illyria now that she is no longer a godking (i suppose i should stop calling Illyria "she," huh? i was noticing tonight that everyone calls Illyria "it." granted it's a nice distancing mechanism, forcibly reminding oneself that this is not Fred, but it also solves the pronoun problem, and/or implies that as a god, Illyria transcends gender at least as we conceive of it, which is generally my take on the matter).

Clearly we've been there done that with the holy child thing, so i'll be interested to see if it recurs, as a part of this Apocalypse they're supposedly embroiled in or whatever. Speaking of... i can't be the only one annoyed by the implication (Angel's whole "Gunn, look outside, of course we're living in the Apocalypse") the current millennia give or take a few are somehow so much worse than what came before.

Also, wow, Dark!Angel much? I half-expect next week to include him firing everyone. Will be interesting to see where he goes with all this.

Oh, and because we love subtlety, furthering the Darla parallel... (hint: "Sometimes Credited As:")
