Welcome back again! This post we’re going to be taking a look at the first issue of Angel, Season 7... Though they insist on calling it ‘Angel & Faith’ and miscalling it season 9, which annoys me. But this isn’t about my quirks, it’s about taking a look at our characters and judging them for their actions.
Our main characters today are: Angel, Faith, Flashback!Giles and Nadira the Vampire Slayer.
Our Characters Are Amazing!
Angel- I like the idea of Angel honoring Rupert Giles’ life by taking on his unfinished tasks and helping people. Half-KUDO
Faith- Faith does the slayer thing, but what I was going to give her a kudo over was in helping get Angel back on his feet and into action: But, she already got a reward for that with BTVS, S8, I40 so never mind. I like her taking the London Slayers under her wing, but right now that doesn’t earn a kudo yet.
Rupert- Our past!Giles gets a KUDO for saving a little girl with his own intended sacrifice. Thankfully, his bloodletting wasn’t the killing blow it was meant as, but I’m very big on the self-sacrifice thing.
Nadira- I’ve got no kudo for Nadira this time.
Our Characters Are Sucking The Suck!
Angel: Angel really cut me with that remark about Giles, ploy against the demon he was fighting or no, but it isn’t enough to earn a demerit. It came close, though.
Faith: I’m worried about Faith hiding Angel and her relationship from the powder keg that is Nadira but I can’t fault her for not spilling everything right away considering Nadira’s just voiced desire to kill him. It’s a messy situation that is going to have to be dealt with, but I can understand the desire to put it off until some other time. No demerits for Faith about it, just my deep concern.
Rupert: I’ve got no demerits to issue to past!Rupert.
Nadira: I’ve nothing to demerit Nadira for, but she’s seemingly struggling not to lose control and that worries me for the future.
Whistler teams up with Nash & Pearl!?! DEMERIT
