Angel Season 4

I think possibly one of my favourite episodes in Season 4 is "Salvage". I love that we get to see Faith in prison. And that it's really clear that she is contained *because* she chooses to be. This is very much her punishing herself for what she's done rather than the State. And then, when the situation is such that she is needed outside, bam, she's out of jail. I also love the bit where she tells Wesley that Angel never gave up on her, was the only one who never gave up on her, so she's not going to give up on him. And Wesley tells her that's why it had to be her (I guess instead of Buffy?). And the history and reference to history of everyone, I love that stuff.

I also love watching a Slayer come in and take contol of the situation as though they have (and I spose they do) an innate ability to strategise and arm and so on at high speed under pressure. Also the way she deals with Connor is pretty cool - you can't follow instructions? I can't use you, get out of here. Nice!

Definitely a favourite episode.
