My favorite episode of the third season. I love it !!! Poor Wes in the end when Fred choose Gunn. How breaking Heart !!!

I also love the delete scene from this episode with Fred/Wes dancing ballet. So cute !

I loved this episode for one reason... Gunn/Fred's first kiss Sorry but i wasnt a wes/fred fan from the beginning. I loved gunn/fred they were so adorable together the way she was worrying about how he could of been hurt more when he was stabbed And this is also one of my fave episodes of all time

I hated this episode. It was the what sparked my extreme dislike for C/A. I get that they were under a spell or whatever. But it had already been leading up to suggestion that they were in to each other. Which was *sort of* ok with me. But then their whole make-out-whatever-they-did scene was way too gross for me. I mean, why don't they hit me over the head harder than that scene suggested? Going from the thought that they were family/best friends and then to that whole episode put such a bad taste in my mouth. ick.

Sorry C/Aers. I am not saying bad things about you. But this episode still makes me sick.

That's ridiculous. I wish ppl would stop trying to suggest that Cordy/Angel were anything like brothers/sisters. It angers me. From a factual point, they, er, WERE NOT. And Angel's intense protectiveness of Cordelia often bordered on the boyfriend like, so it was little surprise that he started to look at her differently midway through season 3. WITW isn't my favourite episode, but it brought two charming characters together for the 1st time and I'm glad it did. C/A are the best on-screen couple. Deal with that!!

Waiting in the wings is my all-time favourite Angel episode!
even thought it resulted in heartbreak for my favourite character Wes.

the storyline about the dancer trapped in time was really good and the girl who played her was brilliant.

as usual Joss's brilliance in writing shines through best when he is piling on the angst for our beloved team Angel! the look on Wes's face should have earnt him an emmy for that alone...such raw emotion conveyed to the audience without a single word or gesture-just his face. *sob*

also that lullaby that Lorne sang to baby connor was hilarious...

Well they might not have been brother and sister but they did have a family bestfriend vibe that was more Willow/Xander than blind and in love IMO.

I actually like WITW and it's one of my favourite episodes. I felt that it was really funny with the Cordy/Angel scenes and that Alexis stole the show with his heartbroken silence.

I wasn't very interested in the back story of the play and it's dancers but this was definitely a turning point for the show regarding the Fang Gang and how they would start to react to one another. It's the beginning of the end.

I liked it until the Fred/Gunn kiss... after that it just broke my heart...

Though I still loved the Prima Ballerina and her "I don't dance, I echo." gives me chills...

strange piece I did for it...

I absolutely loved this episode. I had been shipping C/A for a long time up until this point, but this episode solidified it for me. Definitely a Season 3 highlight. (Although, there were lots of highlights in Season 3. Masterful season.)

Definitely one of the many best episodes of this season. You should post on the C/A thread if you're a C/A fan, April. Right now we're all posting on the "Mover's On Club" because were going to have a celebration for our 200th thread soon!
