Mya Stone July 14, 2014 Share July 14, 2014 Angel steps up his torment of Buffy and her friends as Jenny searches for a way to restore his soul. I love this episode. Love love love it. The demise of Jenny. The beginning of the end of Angelus. The pathos, the gripping pain of Giles. ASH hit this out of the park for me. His scene outside of the factory with Buffy breaks my heart to this day. A glimpse into Mya's mind...Angel's voiceover book-ending this episode was a go-to away message for me back in the AIM days of yore. In all it's glory: Passion... it lies in all of us. Sleeping, waiting, and though unwanted, unbidden, it will stir, open its jaws, and howl. It speaks to us, guides us... passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments; the joy of love, the clarity of hatred, and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank... without passion, we'd be truly dead. Just a gorgeous bit of writing. 2 Link to comment
