Factory-Fresh ANGEL!!

Here’s what TV Guide says about “Couplet”:

“Exacerbating the tension caused by the office's two latest couplings, Cordy asks Angel to help her achieve the next level of intimacy with Groosalugg (Mark Lutz). Meanwhile, Fred and Gunn discuss the new wrinkle in their relationship and track an alleged cheating fiancé, whom they promptly lose during a brief make-out session. Wesley: Alexis Denisof. Anita: Fanshen Cox. Lionel: Steven Hack.”

A few details TV Guide leaves out:

1) Angel gets all jealous because Cordy likes Groo better – and Groo can rescue people in the sunshine.

2) Wes gets all jealous as Gunn and Fred continue in kissy-face mode.

3) Cordy gives the Groosalugg a makeover.

4) The gang combats an evil tree.

5) The episode ends with a spoiler so horrifying it can only be offered using the miracle that is inviso-text! Wesley discovers another prophesy: “The father will kill the son.”

6) This is easily one of the best installments of "Angel" ever!
