Great episode! Much better than I tend to remember when I haven't watched it in a while.
We're still seeing Angel and Cordy try to fit Wesley into their dynamic and that's really good writing and acting from all three. I also love so many things that, when put together, make this a favorite of mine; Phantom Dennis taking care of Cordelia, Angel and Wesley watching Cordelia drinking (gulping down) blood, Wesley's mention of the story of David and Goliath to the monster, Cordelia and Wesley at the doctor's office, Cordy's friends assuming Angel and Wes are a gay couple, I mean there is just so much goodness in this one.
I watched someone in today's world reacting to it and I wanted to roll my eyes sooo many times at their comments about how it was 'un-feminist' and how bad of a message it sent. Sometimes it's not about sending a message; it's just a funny episode!
