Oops- if you look at the trailer, it looks like its for this week if your not paying close attention - anyway...Can't wait to see what Lindsey's return is all about - hope they don't keep us waiting on that one. Good interview with "Harmony" on the WB site. www.thewb.com

I'm having the same problem...I think the last episode:
Spoiler:

Had Spike becoming corporeal again after receiving a mysterious envelope. In the end we see Eve getting into bed with Leslie.

I am blanking on the rest, guess I better turn in early so I don't miss the recap.

Way more info than I can shake a stick at here:
http://www.tvtome.com/tvtome/servlet...2/epid-274737/

Here is their synopsis of the last new episode. The misspellings are theirs, not mine:
It begins in 1880, a newly sired Spike is still fresh on the game and is introduced to the veteran and infamously brutal Angelus. In Spike, Angelus sees a potential protogé and begins to mould him in his image to create what was to become the second most barbaric vampire in history. However, their relationship hits rocky grounds when Spike walks in on Angelus having sex with Dru, and is outraged seeing as he had earler told Angelus of his intentions for her.

While in the present, Spike recieves a mysterious package from an unknown person, which when opened released a flash of light which made him corporeal once more. However, now with two champion vampires in existance (Spike becoming a champion after the actions of Buffy finale 'Chosen') the universe has been thrown into turmoil, and this is manifesting itself with members of Wolfram and Hart randomly atacking other employees for minor reasons.

To find a solution to this they consult with occult expert Sirk who reads to them a section of the Shansu prophecy which tells of the 'Cup of Perpetual Torment' which the vampire with a soul must drink from it to fufill the prophecy. Hearing this, both Angel and Spike race to it's location in the Nevada desert, followed by a fight which culminates with Spike beating Angel and having the oportunity to dust him, but passes it up because he didn't want to deal with Buffy about it afterwards.

Spike then drinks from the cup to find it out was all a set up, and return to Wolfram and Hart to find Sirk has done a runner and that the Senior partners have temporarily sorted out all the earlier problems. It finishes with Eve meeting with the mastermind behind this entire chain of events, who turns out to be a familiar face from the past who seems to have moved up in the world of the occult.

Angel -- "Harm's Way" 01.14.2004

Harm's Way

Keeping her job as Angel's assistant is the least of Harmony's worries when she wakes up with a dead vamp-bite victim in her bed and no memory of the previous night's events. And things go from bad to worse when the gang's investigation reveals that the dead guy was a demons' rights activist negotiating between two warring clans. Tamika: Danielle Nicolet. Brittany: Jennifer Haworth. Charlotte: Stacy Reed. Tobias: Bryce Mouer.


Really good episode.

HOWEVER, thanks WB for spoiling the 100th episode casting surprise for me!

1/14/03 "In Harm's Way"

Yay, new Angel, and it was highly amusing to me, with Harmony getting us back into the world of Wolfram and Hart led by Angel and company.

The opening bit was hilarious.

The writer milked Harmony's foibles and strengths well in this episode.

I about lost it as the 2 lady vamps face off with wooden chopsticks. Oh dear, that produce some good ol' fashion laughs that only a show like Angel or Buffy could.

I hated it. I thought it was probably the worst Angel episode I've ever seen. This isn't surprising considering Harmony is easily my least favorite continuing character in the "Buffyverse"...

Oh, and could Fred's skirt be any shorter?

I enjoyed it! One of my disappointments with this season to date is that they've underutilized the Wolfram and Hart setting -- I mean, it relates to some of the plots, and they sieze every available opportunity to mention working for an evil law firm, but the group is so insular... You get your requisite flunky or two of the week, but this might be the first time where it really did feel like a large company with employees on all rungs of the corporate ladder. I have to admit that the idea of a Harmony-centric episode initially didn't exactly have me overflowing with enthusiasm, but "Harm's Way" got me jazzed about the series again. I'm a fan of "The Zeppo", and its Angel counterpart was nicely done as well.

HOWEVER, thanks WB for spoiling the 100th episode casting surprise for me!
Hmmm....? The hundredth episode is still a few more eps away, or are you referring to footage shown outside of the 'next week on Angel' teaser?

It was right before Smallville [which was another good ep tonite]. They were touting "All New Episodes Tonite blah, blah, blah..". And then they said "...and on Angel's 100th Episode ******** ******s!"

And I did my damnedest to not read the thread when it was discussed in TV Talk last month...

Anyone else feel that the lady vamp fight reminded them of the Black Mamba-Copperhead fight in "Kill Bill"?

Is there ever such a thing as too short?

I loved it. I would have thought too much Harm would be annoying, but they handled it really well. In fact, they made her almost too likeable (because she is suppose to be an evil vampire). It didn't hurt that Mercedes looked the best she ever has.

She doesn't have a soul.
