Episode 3 - The Harsh Light Of Day/In The Dark
I’m putting these two episodes together because they are really just 2 parts of the same story arc.
Okay, let’s tackle this once and for all - Harmony, as a vampire?! Wow. Was the vamp that made her a little drunk?! Who would want that around for eternity. I’m really surprised that Spike could put up with her. I’m mean he tolerated Drusilla for over 100 years…but damn.
Anya and Xander…well at least he already knows she’s a demon and she’s already tried to kill him once so…they’ve got that all out of the way. Strangely, I kinda like it. They’re cute together.
I really, really like the music in this episode. I found a great site online BuffyGuide.com that goes into great detail of each episode of the show including a songs list for each. I’m going to be looking some is these up. :-)
The torture. Wow is there a fair amount of torture in these shows. Creepy Marcus didn’t quite get what he deserved, but at least he’s dead.
And Oz, wow. He was way more of a dynamic presence in one show of Angel than he was in all the episodes he was on in Buffy…put together. What the hell is that all about?!
I wanted Angel to keep the ring too, but what I figured was that he would spend the rest of his existence defending it and eventually it would fall into the hands of a baddy.
Blast From The Past:
Harmony (Sporadically through seasons 1-3)
Devon: That was like the best set ever. We’ll do great in LA. We’re gonna have them glued to their seats.
Willow: Uh, Devon. Aren’t they supposed to dance?
Oz: Well, we can glue them to the dance floor.
Xander:”I am not enjoying this.
Giles: Well shelve them correctly and we can finish.
Xander: I don’t get your crazy system.
Giles: System? It’s called the alphabet.
Anya: You should lock your door.
Giles: Believe me, I am kicking myself.
Xander: Anya, slow down. In fact, come to a screeching halt.
Buffy: Neck. Paler. The puppy. The angry puppy.
Oz: Yeah, we came to warn you about the - angry puppy.
Harmony: Is Antonio Banderas a vampire?
Harmony: Can I make him a vampire?
Spike: No. On second thought, yes. Go do that. Take your time. Do Melanie and the kids as well.
Anya: At point the matter is brought to a conclusion with both parties satisfied and able to move on with their separate lives and interests. To sum up, I think it’s a workable plan. ”
Xander: So, the crux of this plan is -
Anya: Sexual intercourse. I’ve said it like a dozen times.
Xander: Uh, huh. Just working through a little hysterical deafness here.
Willow: Did it happen with Parker?
Buffy: Yeah. It happened.
Willow: Well, and?! Details! I mean, not details. I don’t need a diagram but, you know, like maybe a blurry watercolor.
Oz: Okay, either I’m borrowing all your albums or I’m moving in.
Buffy: The Gem.
Spike: Oh, yeah. The Gem of Amara. Official sponsor of my killing you.
Angel: Poor Lenny. Burden of terrorizing your girlfriend too much for ya?
Spike: [as Rachel] How can I thank you, you mysterious black-clad hunk of a night thing?
Spike: [as Angel] No need, little lady, your tears of gratitude are enough for me. You see, I was once a badass vampire, but love and a pesky curse defanged me. And now, I’m just a big, fluffy puppy with bad teeth. No, not the hair. Never the hair.
Spike: [as Rachel] But there must be some way I can show my appreciation?
Spike: [as Angel] No, helping those in need’s my job, and workin’ up a load of sexual tension and prancing away like a magnificent poof is truly thanks enough.
Spike: [as Rachel] I understand. I have a nephew who’s gay, so…
Spike: [as Angel] Say no more. Evil’s still afoot. And I’m almost out of that nancy-boy hair-gel I like so much. Quickly, to the Angel-mobile, away.
Angel: Nice surprise.
Angel: Staying long?
Oz: Few days.
Doyle: They always like this?
Oz: No, we’re usually laconic.
Doyle: Why don’t you put it on and, here, I’ll stake ya. It’ll be fun!
Spike: Cordelia. You look smashing. Did you lose weight?
Cordelia: Yes, there is this great gym at - hey!
Marcus: His skin.
Spike: Annoying isn’t it? Still attached.
Spike: You two need to be alone?
Angel: Are you going to torture me or just bore me to death, huh?
Marcus: Probably a little of both.
Spike: Speakin’ of little Buff, I ran into her recently. Your name didn’t come up. Although, she has been awful busy jumpin’ the bones of the very first lunkhead who came along. Good-lookin’ fella. Used her shamelessly. She is cute when she’s hurting.
Angel: She’s cuter when she’s kicking your ass.
Marcus: What are you planning to do, kill me?
Angel: Well, after all, I promised.
Angel: I don’t know about you, but I had a nice day. You know, except for the bulk of it where I was nearly tortured to death.
Doyle: Hey, you stood up.
Angel: Oh, God. I was this close to telling him everything. I mean, on more hot poker and I was giving him the ring, your mom, everything.
