Yes, I was actually drinking during the show. What finally pushed me off the wagon?
'We were never intimate...except that one time'
What?! Fury, I love you, really. Never bitched about your writing. Never accused you of not being able to write Spike. But your propensity for winking at the audiance has just made speculation canon. For my own sake I'm choosing to take this refernece to be a threesome between Angel, Dru, and Spike.
My other criticism - The Black Thorn. Now, I don't have a problem with this in theory, but shouldn't we have heard about them before there were only 75 minutes left in the series? I'm not talking about episodes dealing with them, just a hint here and there.
To add to my 'issues', Lindsey's part in all this. So, let me get this straight, Lindsey left two and a half years prior to his recent reappearance - apparently putting W&H and the Senior Partners behind him. Now we are to believe he's back, intent on ingratiating himself into The Black Thorn by killing Angel and thus working for the Senior Partners? Uh-Huh.
Now before you think I hated this episode, quite the contrary, I liked it quite a lot.
Cordy passing the visions to Angel? Very Cool.
Lindsey simply being there - loved it! ;)
I liked how they brought Drogren (sp) back and how he was intragel to the plot. Sadly he had to be sacrificed for the greater good. Interestingly Angel left that little detail out.
Illyria and Dro playing videogames - nice bit of comic relief that also reflected Illyria's own dillema existing in this world.
Marcus kicking Illyria's ass. I had some personal issues with the violence of it. On the other hand, Marcus is more powerful than she (and goes way back with Dro). Who the Hell is this guy?
Spike took the duster off!
I'd probably should have more in depth thoughts but between the liquor, lack of sleep, and the distractions of my wonderful friends and hostesses, this is the best I could do. I'm just excited I didn't have to wait to post as I usually do!
Had a magnificent time today. Lynn, Cindy, and writteninstars have had mucho fun already. We went to a terrific Italian restaurant and discovered a marvy new wine - Thirsty Lizard white shiraz. I'd highly recommend trying a bottle. The rest of the time we've just kicked back and chatted. It's been lovely.
Now off to check on what you all have been up to. :)
ETA: Just caught up on your lovely replies to my last post. I don't have time to comment to all of you individually, but I wanted to thank you all for your kind words. ::Hugs:: And, when I can, I will get some pics of my work up. :)
