Buffy The Vampire Slayer – Angel – dvd 116

More slayage today, with Buffy The Vampire SlayerNever Leave Me. We’ve skipped a couple of episodes since the last one we saw.

Warren, one of the trio who was killed in the previous series, is back as a ghost, getting Andrew (Tom Lenk) to kill Jonathan (in a previous episode) to open up some sort of seal. But he’s not Warren, he’s the big bad evil, that’s also been appearing to other people as other dead characters.

In fact, it also appears as Jonathan, to try to assuage Andrew’s conscience.

Buffy has to restrain Spike, because the big bad has been influencing him to kill again.

Buffy hasn’t heard from Giles (and the Previously On suggests that he’s already been killed by henchmen of the big evil) so she calls the head of the Watcher’s Council, who’s played by Harris Yulin, last seen as Roger Stanton in 24.

Andrew won’t kill any more people, so he has to kill a pig instead. “Babe II: Pig in the City was really underrated.”

He’s not very good at pig slaughtering so he buys pigs blood from a butcher’s. Willow bumps into him as he’s leaving, sees the blood, and him – not a fond memory since Warren killed Tara.

She brings him back to the house, and Xander and Anya try playing Good Cop Bad Cop on him, but don’t get very far. Spike is visited by the big evil again, in the form of himself. He breaks out of his bonds and attacks Andrew.

Principal Wood goes down into the school basement, and discovers Jonathan’s body on the seal on the floor.

Buffy tries to persuade Spike that he can break whatever’s triggering him.

But then, the evil’s minions The Bringers attack the house.

The Watcher’s Council have also worked out that it’s The First Evil that’s causing all the trouble. Mr Travers gives a stirring speech, and tells them they’re going to the Hellmouth to face it.

Then the building explodes.

The Bringers have captured Spike, and the First Evil, as Spike, is making him bleed over the seal.

The seal starts opening.

An ancient vampire comes out.

Next on this disc, it’s AngelHabeas Corpses. Again, a couple of episodes after the last one we saw. It looks like there’s an apocalypse happening, and Angel is staring broodingly through a window at Cordelia and Connor being inappropriate. (I almost wrote ‘broodily’ which is completely not how he was feeling.) I think all this sub-soap-opera stuff was one of the reasons I never loved Angel as much as I loved Buffy.

Next morning, Cordelia tells Connor it can’t happen again. Connor thinks it’s because she thinks he’s is somehow linked to the huge demon that’s seemingly bringing the apocalypse. After all, it did emerge from the ground at the exact spot that Connor was born.

It seems to be breakup time everywhere, as Wesley tells Lilah it’s over, and he’s picking a side, now the apocalypse is here.

Connor also pays a visit to Lilah to ask her if she can find out if he’s linked to the beast.

But the beast has followed Connor, and is killing his way through the Wolfram and Hart workforce. Even Lilah’s assistant Gavin Park (Daniel Dae Kim) gets killed.

Wesley arrives in time to rescue Lilah. He gets her out of the building, but tells him that Connor is trapped inside.

Wesley goes to Angel to tell him, and they all head to Wolfram & Hart to find Connor. Angel finds him, but he also finds that Gavin is a zombie now.

There’s lots of zombie fighting, until Angel takes them to the White Room where they’d encountered a little girl who was actually an ancient demon. Because it’s a gateway, it’s a possible way out. Except the Beast is there already, draining the power of the little girl.

The girl looks over at the group, points and says “The Answer is among you.”

She sends them back to the hotel (convenient) and Lorne, who was left behind to mind the store actually does the ‘drunk looking at his drink’ thing when they appear.

Cordy is pleased they’re all back together. Until Angel tells her “Now… take your new boyfriend and get the hell out of here.”

After this, there’s the start of an episode of Scrubs.
