I dont like crazy Wes, he really needs to take a holiday. I loved Lorne he was so funny in this episode. I missed that. His comment to Angel asking him does he know how to use the walkie talkie was hillarious.

I liked that Illyria saved Gunn but I cant believe she killed everyone!! How sweet was Angel saving Spike though.

Its a shame she lost most of her powers. She would have been awesome in the final battle.

I was so confused with that ending!! Did Angel really just hand over that baby to those demons!!

-Well, Illyria proved to be quite useful in that instance. Yay for Gunn!
-And Wes orchestrated it. Good to see he isn't harboring ill-will towards Gunn. And I don't think Illyria wants to join the team so much as she has nothing else to do and nowhere to go...
-Yes, very awkward to apologize for stabbing someone. Wes is sure scurrying around his office.
-And seems to be going slightly insane...erm...
-"So, she's like a TV star." "No, nothing that bad. Much more violent, though."
-Yup, adaption is not compromise, it's survival.
-Slo-mo Spike!!
-Gunn has amassed one heck of an inbox pile.
-Lorne with a walkie-talkie. Heehee. Glad Lorne noticed it, too.
-"Well, I tell you, what, still like him better than Eve." True, though he is a jerkface. Heh. Love the Bat Cave reference.
-Ooo, Illyria doesn't like Wesley betraying her. Interesting.
-Yeah, demons bringing you stuff while you're pregnant is probably not a good thing.
-So...Illyria is doing some time hopping then? And she isn't happy about Wes trying to kill her.
-It is odd hearing a demon say "organic cola"...
-You're giving demons your baby to cure your husband?? Oi.
-Hamilton is a very pompous arse. And interesting that the SP are interested in Illyria...probably because they are afraid of her??
-Thumbs-up for the third trimester!
-Well, when Illyria wants a meeting I guess you just take it...
-She cracked her engine block. Gotta love Spike analogies.
-Erm...she just killed everyone.
-Oh, good, Angel is time-hopping now, too. That's not going to be good.
-Love Angel's verbal smackdown of Illyria.
-Illyria just blew up...??
-Angel saved Spike without even thinking about it!!
-It's like Ghostbusters!! So now Illyria might be somewhat manageable.
-"She might just make the team yet." Just gotta change her ambition. ;)
-Angel signing off the baby. Hoping that's to throw the SO off....??

Poor Crazy Wes, it might have been better if he had stayed that way, It made sense for the character.
Fred was gone, his memories are back, he's estranged from the rest of the team in one way or another. Just give in Wes, I wonder if W&H had a psych ward?

Poor Gunn :(

Illyria :eek:

Gunn, Fred's dead...

Wesley's little helper :p

She has more power than Glory... (Sorry @Athena )

Gunn, get to the paperwork...

Illyria on a leash ??? :rolleyes:

Spike :eek:

Spike gets punched, Spike laughs, his laugh is cute :oops:

Angel is watching all of this, and he's not impressed...

Lorne, there's no way you would be able to tail Illyria without getting caught...

Wes, you need some help...

Hamilton :eek:

Profits, profits and more profits :D

Those shakes and vitamins are probably doing more harm than good...

Illyria is sick :(


Organic Cola, that must be an oxymoron...

So they are making her give them the baby ??? o_O

Yeah, who is Jim Jones anyways ??? o_O

Gunn, I don't like fake sugar coated lives either...

Wes hasn't laughed in a very long time, he should laugh more often...

Leery ??? o_O

Urine ??? Eww :eek:

Illyria :mad:

Illyria is unstable, we all know that...

Redrawing maps ??? That's no good...

This is very much Deja Vu...

Angel sparkled ??? That's sad news :(

So everyone is dead ??? o_O

Angel, kill her...

Ding dong the witch is dead :D

It wasn't murder after all ??? o_O

Do it :eek:

Vermin ??? o_O

Wes, you are definitely in love with this thing...

Angel has switched to the dark side...

Next time: Spike and Angel go to save Buffy while Fred's parents come to L.A.
