Points Of View
The Short: With Angel trapped on the ocean floor and Cordelia stuck on a mystical plane, Fred and Gunn are frustrated at the lack of clues regarding their friends' whereabouts, especially after the only eyewitness to Angel's disappearance is murdered. After Angel is rescued by Wesley, the shocking reasons behind the mysterious disappearances become clear.
The Long: After a ''Previously on Angel'' segment (see Continuity #1) we open on Angel and the whole crew having dinner together. They all seem very happy, but no one will pass any food to Angel. Eventually things turn dark and suddenly the room floods and Angel awakens, still inside the box at the bottom of the ocean. (Listen to the teaser here.)
We learn one of the senior partners of Wolfram & Hart is named Mister Suvarta.
- Gunn: ''Well, how's he gonna feel if all vampirella saw is sand and seaweed?''
Vampirella is a female vampire comic book hero published by Harris Publications. Vampirella was made into a direct to video film in 1996 starring Talisa Soto as the title character. The official Vampirella web site is at http://www.vampirella.com/.
- Gunn: ''Are you sure about that? Offspring of two vampires. Last time I checked that's not supposed to happen, and jumping off a six story without busting your coconut kind of sways me to the side of not just a boy. I mean, come on, Fred. His nickname back in Quortoth was the destroyer, and unless you put Conan in front of that, I'm guessing it's not a good sign.''
Conan the Destroyer is a 1984 fantasy epic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as the title character, a muscle bound hero for hire.

Points Of View
Personally I thought the season opener was slow and had way too many dream sequences. It really doesn't make sense that Wesley hasn't communicated with Fred and Gunn, and where is Groo, wouldn't he care that Cordelia disappeared? What was up with Justine being so submissive to Wesley? What did he do to her?
