Beccaelizabeth, a thoughtful and detailed post. You should sign up for a guest review. Two eps are still unclaimed. Any interest?
I'd luv to read that Becc. Say yes.
Nan said:It seemed to me that the removal of the crystal, that shut down the ascending "cage," also diminished Lindsey's powers immediately, so I assumed therefore that the insertion of the crystal enabled those powers.
I think too much emphasis is being placed on that crystal. It was merely a key to open the fail/sale. Remeber, Lindsay cut it off of the guard's necklace. I think the fail/safe had its own inherent thingies. Watch it again.
Nan said:Lindsey was able to clobber Angel, hand to hand, before the sword fight got started, whereas after the crystal was removed, Angel wiped the *floor* (wasn't the floor, it was the top of the containment thingie, but still....) with him. So it seemed the crystal was causative to me, even though it made no particular sense for it to be so. After all, what do superpowers have to do with releasing a targeted beastie that presumably would pass anybody else by unless they got in its way?
Lindsey said he had changed, which he had. And he wasn't getting clobbered, he was holding his own for a while. Wow, that backflip on to the platform to where he was hold the sword behind him was pretty. Remember, he was there to open the fail/safe monster and not expecting "Angel and his date". I believe a lot of his power was related to his "sexy runes" (thanks Rob), and the mojo involved in it. For example, while he set Spike up, the "victim visions" involved real victims and incidents, even though he set up Angel with the parasite. This is what sucked Spike in, not his "brain trust" issues, as Angel said.
