AngelANGELíS PAST IS PRESENT AGAIN - On a routine patrol, Angel (David Boreanaz) stakes a female vampire he recognizes from his past, but a moment too late. Her grief-stricken lover, Angelís old fighting buddy, is out for revenge for the present killing and a betrayal Angelus committed over 200 years ago. Charisma Carpenter, Alexis Denisof, J. August Richards and Amy Acker also star. David Greenwalt wrote and directed the episode. (#3ADH01)

First of all, it's fantastic to see Angel distributed in Wide Screen! It gives a great effect to an already fantastic show. A great start to the new season for the cast and crew of Angel. This episode in some ways resolved some of last seasons complications. It also provided an incredible plot twist at the end, with Darla in fact being pregnant.  The episode itself was average. David Greenwalt's writing was pretty ordinary, not up to the high standards set in the past.  The train scene seems to mimic the train scene in Buffy's "Fool For Love". The idea of referring to Buffy, but not actually mentioning her name (I think they do mention her name once), was a little bit lame. Though this episode wasn't the greatest, it was stick completely packed of action, and undoubtedly will want all Angel fans screaming for more!
