Surprise / Innocence
In Surprise, it's Buffy's seventeenth birthday and this party's a bust. Spike & Drusilla are assembling a demon that will bring forth Armageddon and Angel must leave town to ensure it never awakens. Meanwhile, Jenny Calendar's hidden past proves problematic for the Slayer's love life. Kristen & Mike discuss the "secret gypsy" plot line and the melodrama over Angel leaving town for a few months.
They don't make gypsy curses like they used to. In Innocence, following an intimate moment with Buffy, Angel reverts to Angelus. He teams up with Spike & Dru to unleash The Judge on humanity. However, Xander's got a birthday present for Buffy that will introduce this demon to the 21st century. Kristen & Mike define Angel's "moment of happiness" and review how the show handles the subject of sex.
