Rewatching Angel – Episode 32

Angel - TitleWelcome to Rewatching Angel, the part of the blog where I rewatch the Buffy the Vampire Slayer spin-off: Angel. Each Tuesday evening, you’re invited to join me as I attempt to rediscover what made me love these shows so many years ago.

Reunion

  • After the events of last week, Gunn manages to get Angel back to the Hyperion.
  • Angel explains that Drusilla is back and made Darla drink.
  • He finds a stake in his office and says he can save her from another lifetime as a vampire.
  • Angel goes back to Lindsey’s apartment, but it’s been cleared out.
  • A realtor reveals that Lindsey’s odd English cousin was excited about having a baby.
  • Drusilla wants Darla to be reborn under the stars.
  • Lindsey and Dru have Darla’s body in a greenhouse where Lilah and Holland drop in to check on things.
  • It’s good to see that Drusilla is still as insane as ever.
  • Team Angel figures out that Dru will probably want Darla’s rebirth to take place in a plant nursery.
  • Angel is able to find the right one and uncovers Darla in a shallow dirt box.
  • Just as he’s about to stake her, Dru beats him with a shovel.
  • While they struggle, Darla wakes up.
  • Then the girls have Angel at something of a disadvantage.
  • After a pretty drawn out scuffle, Dru and Darla disappear.
  • Drusilla heads over to Lindsey’s office. And, eventually, so does Darla.
  • She grabs Dru and they run off together.
  • On their way to Wolfram & Hart, Cordelia has a vision, forcing Team Angel to turn and go the other way.
  • Darla, meanwhile, fights with Dru and wants to know why she turned her.
  • Then she comforts the upset Drusilla.
  • When a disgruntled driver decides to voice his anger at them being in the middle of the road, Darla feeds for the first time in her new afterlife.
  • Angel stops a guy from killing himself in the name of some demon, but he doesn’t really care to help him.
  • The others point out that the Powers That Be may have sent the vision to keep Angel from going after the girls. But he doesn’t seem to care.
  • Holland calls a cell phone that was planted on Dru while the girls are in a quaint little shop where they’ve just killed a quaint little shop girl. And then another.
  • Holland suggests that, instead of a kill spree, they go on a massacre. Which should keep Angel busy.
  • Angel bursts into Lindsey’s office and meets Holland Manners for the first time.
  • Holland explains that he’s head of Special Projects. And Angel is the project.
  • Angel: “You set things in motion, play your little games in your glass and chrome tower, and people die. Innocent people.”
  • Holland: “And yet I just can’t seem to care.”
  • It’s a great little exchange. I’m always a fan of the hero and villain having a little parlay.
  • Holland has Angel escorted out of the building. He says he’d walk him out himself, but he’s late for a wine tasting at his home.
  • Wolfram & Hart has Angel arrested. And guess who’s in the back seat of the police cruiser…
  • It’s Detective Kate Lockley! Always a pleasure.
  • She explains that Darla and Dru are on a killing spree and she wants Angel to stop them. So she lets him go.
  • At Holland’s wine tasting, Dru and Darla show up. Holland’s wife invited them in. Right before they fed on her.
  • Holland said he wanted a massacre. They’re here to deliver.
  • At the shop, Angel finds a survivor hiding in the dressing rooms. She lets him know that she overheard the girls talking about going to the wine tasting.
  • Holland’s wife isn’t quite dead and is alive enough to beg Angel to help them when he arrives. That must be enough of an invitation.
  • Angel heads down to the wine cellar.
  • Holland: “Angel, please. People are going to die.”
  • Angel: “And yet, somehow, I just can’t seem to care.”
  • And then he locks Dru and Darla in with the lawyers.
  • Let the massacre begin.
  • Angel’s team can’t believe that he allowed Drusilla and Darla to kill all those people. They think he’s crossed the line.
  • So he fires them.
  • Body count: Humans – Too many to count.
