- The City of Angels
I'm really curious about what you mean with the sexual abuse metaphor. I didn't really interpret the episode as a sexual abuse storyline, unless you mean abuse as in having too much sex.Plus, the sexual abuse metaphor is really clumsy and astonishingly literal- the whole release of sexual energy at the party is really dumb. .
He must have had a lot of them Also, if they were being controlled by the house then how did he have the presence of mind to use condoms?I recently watched this ep for the first time in years and I really enjoyed it. I do love the combination of ghost story and religious nutter Yes it is just filler, but here are some lovely creepy moments, I especially liked Riley & the dripping tap, Willow finding the ghost in the bath and Tara taking charge of the 'seance'. Seeing Xander in the ice cream truck made me smile, knowing that we'll see that again later The Spike/Anya pity party was funny. Giles singing was great, ASH really is a talented man, perhaps the most talented cast member.
I think the Briley sex puts a lot of people off, but I liked the idea that sex can have unforseen consequences, even if you use condoms (how 90's was that - Riley opening his condom drawer; keep yourself safe kids). An underrated episode

Credit to you Priceless you've done a good job of selling this episode by highlighting small moments of greatness, you should work in editing Really am intriuged to know which season 7 episodes you were thinking of for the rewatch now
