Good Morning, All!
Thanks for joining me as we explore another edition of “Best Of / Worst Of Character Moments”. This time out, we’re focusing on Angel & Faith’s Season 1, Issue 22.
Today’s issue focuses on the resurrection of Rupert Giles… but not as we knew him, to his frustration and anger.
Our focus characters are: Angel, Faith, Alasdair, Rupert and his great aunts - Sophronia and Lavinia Fairweather.
Our Characters Are Amazing!
Angel- I’ve nothing for Angel.
Faith- I’m not going to give Faith a kudo.
Alasdair- Alasdair is more to thank/blame for Rupert’s return than anyone, since he’s the one to do the chanting right to make sure the spell had a hope of working. I’ll hand him a Half-KUDO for his ability to pull it off in the end.
Rupert- No kudos for Rupert.
Sophie- Nothing for the great aunt.
Liv- I’m not handing anything to the other great aunt, either.
Why Are We Following These Imbeciles?!
Angel: Angel isn’t going to receive a demerit, but I’ll always remain ambiguous about resurrecting Giles.
Faith: Ditto to Faith.
Alasdair: And ditto, ditto to Alasdair.
Rupert: Okay, look. Giles has every right to be angry that Angel used despicable dark magicks to bring him back. He’s equally valid in his horror and anger at being brought back physically wrong. I’m utterly on board with it all. BUT. They also saved his stupid ass from being enthralled to Eyghon for… maybe… ever! I think that counts for something. I’m handing him a Half-DEMERIT for his ingratitude and completely snotty attitude.
Soph- I’ve a Half-DEMERIT to Giles’ great aunt for semi-purposely focusing on bringing back Rupert as a boy, rather than as his adult self, and thereby creating a real problem between Rupert the adult, and his body. I’m particularly annoyed with the flippant attitude about it.
Liv- I’ve a Half-DEMERIT to Giles’ other great aunt for semi-purposely focusing on bringing back Rupert as a boy, rather than as his adult self, and thereby creating a real problem between Rupert the adult, and his body. I’m particularly annoyed with the flippant attitude about it.
