So. Angel wanders out, and Gunn turns to him. Gunn tells Angel that he only said what he did in Caritas as an attempt to stall. Even though he didn't know why he was stalling for time, because he didn't know about the Kindly Ones, and I don't know why I bother. Gunn says, "It doesn't mean I meant any of it." Angel says that Gunn meant every word, but it's okay. Oh, whatever. If this episode had happened a year ago, the tension over Angel's demonic side would have been understandable. At this point, out of the blue, it just isn't. Gunn says he can't help it: "It doesn't mean I don't want to work with you. It doesn't mean that I don't like you. Maybe someday....I don't know." Angel says, "I got time." He turns down the alley, and Gunn calls him back to say, "I think I proved that you could trust me. When I could have killed you and I didn't." See, again, yes, but until this episode, we had no reason to think that Angel didn't trust Gunn. So, what the hell? Angel, weighted by the burden of being a completely different person for this scene, replies, "You'll prove I can trust you when the day comes that you have to kill me, and you do." He turns and walks away, wondering where the hell he parked his car. Gunn turns to call a cab so that he can reclaim his truck from Cordy. Does this mean that Buffy is the only person in the whole world that Angel trusts? Because if he's limiting it to people who have tried to kill him when he needed killing, that's pretty much it. Wow, and I thought I had issues.
Next time...I don't know, actually. But it's gotta be better than this was.
