At what point did Angel realise that the "swami" was an imposter?

    Anyanka Bunny Killer Is it difficult or time-consuming?

    I watched Guise Will Be Guise again, and was trying to figure out exactly when Angel knew the guy was a fake. Definitely before Gunn arrived; maybe when the swami told him to hurt another blond girl to get over Darla? Thoughts?

    Yeah, probably after the swami told Angel to find a girl like Darla, love her and then break her heart. It was a pretty insensitive and unhelpful thing to say, not to mention suspicious.

    I don't think the filmmakers telegraphed for us when exactly it happened (like I don't think theres any shot sequence where the swami says something significant and we see a look cross Angel's face). And I think they kept it purposely ambiguous to play on the tension between us knowing and worrying that Angel doesn't know.
     
    Carrie Hopewell: Exactly :) Well said
