It was. I'm with Wes, Fred, Gunn and Angelus on this one!

This is one of the most moving episodes in Angel, storyline consistency and belivability notwithstanding. However, doesn't Joss Whedon get away with a lot of things that mere morals usually don't?

So much pain at the end for our two favourite men, Angel and Wesley.
Can't say it is my favourite as it is so painful to watch Wesley's sweet heart being ripped out.

But... Alexis Denisof stole the show with his stellar performance. The range... so sweet, such gentle diffident love, then the blinding pain and rage and turmoil that almost burst through but restrained with so much effort that makes it even more painful to watch because he a gentleman with a broken heart. Sigh.....

Agreed. It hurt me a lot for Wesley, and as a big fan of Wes and Fred as a couple but that was of course intentional... Joss wanted me to hurt and it worked. I loved the parallels between Wesley and the bad guy... up to the part where Wesley tells Fred and Gunn to take care of each-other instead of going all psycho... proving it's the real love not fixation like the counts... Beautifully done.

In this episode, we got:

Ballet (something I've loved ever since watching The Red Shoes as a young girl)

Wesley and Angel experiencing heartbreak (so well-acted by Alexis and David with simple sad stares towards their women kissing other men)

Gunn and Fred YES! This worked. I loved the build-up to their kiss and Fred showing worry over Gunn being stabbed.

Boiling hot tension between Angel and Cordy as they realize they've been possessed by the spirits of old lovers.

BABYSITTER LORNE!

If the show could have ended with this episode -- just remove the Groosalug's return and conclude it with Angel telling Cordelia "you've become a truly extraordinary woman" -- I'd have been so happy.
