That was a really good season, especially considering how rough season 1 was of Buffy. I really did not remember the overall season being that good but it really did nail a lot of elements I like. It had character moments with Buffy and Angel, Angelus, Angel’s struggles with humanity, cool characters like Lindsay/Lilah/Doyle/Gunn, and Faith’s turnaround.
My favorite episodes in the season are:
- “I will Remember You" episode 8
- "Hero" episode 9
- "Somnambulist" episode 11
- "Five by Five" episode 18
- "Sanctuary" episode 19
- "Blind Date” episode 21
- “To Shanshu in L.A." episode 22
It was pretty cool to see Jeremy Renner as Angel’s protege and Christina Hendricks as the Barmaid for the flash backs to Angel’s past as a human.
Season 1 was a really good one, now onto season 2.
