2004-05-21 21:05:48-07:00 - Putting the finale in context--a viewing experiment - (reldevik@usa.net)

Here's what to do: Watch your tape of the finale. Then watch "Conviction" and "Just Rewards" (AtS 5.1 and 5.2). Notice how clueless everyone in Angel's gang is, and how perky: like bright shiny new pennies, compared to the worn old coins they've become by the finale. Notice how Spike's warnings fall on deaf ears. I wonder if Angel, later, ever thought about what Spike said to him in "Just Rewards" about the belly of the beast digesting him? Then watch the finale again. And feel your heart break. Clairel
