Angel - Sleep Tight - 03/03/02

Oh dear.

This is NOT going to end well.

I watched about 1/4 of the episode, and then had to stop. I'm just now getting back to finishing watching it. Of course, I am now up to the 15 minutes or so I saw on the night it was actually being broadcast.

Lou has a theory, having not seen all of the episode. He thinks Conor is Sahjhann, the time travelling demon. I don't think so, but I don't think it's far off from the truth.

Well, I was right. It did SO not end well.

I hadn't heard that Alexis Denisof wanted to leave the show. They're going to have an extremely tough writing him back in after this, I think. Not that Joss and David can't pull it off. But hey, maybe he is really gonna be dead after all? Or will Fred and Gunn find him?

And Lou may not be all that far off. The demon Conor makes sense now.

But this is one helluva way to soap-opera age Conor. But it makes more sense than it does on soaps or most prime-time shows that add kids into the mix.

It even had me somewhat liking Lilah, which is a hard thing for me to do, because I always thought Lindsay was the better of the two. And they passed up a line that I was expecting her to deliver, about awakening her conscience like he had done with Lindsay.

Wow. Let's give this episode the highest honor. 10/10.
