Enemies (Doug Petrie)
How I felt watching this
A drama is in trouble when it uses the misinterpretation of an innocent incident when two characters are supposed to trust each other as a basis for the rest of the episode. Even when it jokes at this later on: “But it's so clear the way he feels about you. Buffy, I too know the love of a taciturn man and you have to look at their actions.” “I was. “ “Well, what did he say?” “Say? You mean when I straightforwardly asked him what was going on?” “So you bailed?”
The first time I saw this when I didn’t know what was going on it was intriguing but second time it’s a bit dull plus the demon owing Giles a favour was a corny and cheaty device. I’m not intrigued by the Buffy and Angel angst and even Faith bored me.
“That could be hours. The girl makes Godot look punctual. I'll just go myself.” - make up your mind folks, is Buffy pay-attention gal or not?
“You know how some people hate to say I told you so? Not me. I told you so. Angel's back in the really bad sense, and uh, I told you so.” - I’ll let Xander off this time
