- The City of Angels
Just watched this episode for the third or fourth time and I just now realized that during that, like, 5 second scene with Giles listening to his record player; it was playing the song he & Joyce listened to in Band Candy... it made me cry all over again!
I just finished this episode. The end scene with Buffy and Dawn was brilliant, it almost had me in tears.
I also thought it was really neat how Spike tried to help Dawn, but made her promise to never mention his name. It shows he does care about people even without a soul (take that Angel), which makes sense since what little we are shown of his life shows he a sensitive person. In his own words "a bad poet, but a good man."
Willow giving Dawn the history book is something I can't decide on. Dawn had questions, but I think Willow should have found a better way to answer them. It isn't surprising that Dawn tried this though, she is hurt, and she has displayed an interest in magic before this all happened. Perhaps one of them should try to guide her, I mean as the Key she probably has a lot of power.
I'm not a Bangel fan at all, but I did really like his scene. It shows that he really cares about Buffy. Though, it is kind of weird since I'm kind of behind on Angel. I just watched "Reunion" where he fires his team so its weird going from that darker Angel to this more caring one.Awesome, awesome episode. A lot of Spike, and the deeper parts of his personality, are really revealed, and "Forever" exemplifies that quite a bit. What did you think about the Angel scene? That's one of my favorite parts of the entire series.
I had wondered if the news of Joyce's death had gotten to Angel and if so I knew he couldn't just ignore it.
Was it ever made known exactly how Angel found out? I don't recall anyone specifically saying. Though maybe Giles or Willow called him because they knew Buffy needed the support? Or maybe Angel keeps up on the Sunnydale obits?
Yea I always wondered this. Especially given where Angel is on his own show. I'm assuming Willow called him, thinking it would help Buffy. Since she's the one that came to LA to tell him about Buffy dying.How did Angel find out the sad news about Joyce in the first place ???
