Angel Broodometer: 2
What a difference a few seasons can make! We start Season 5 with Angel leaping across tall buildings to save a young woman from a vampire. Armed with quips, kicks, and a new suit, Action Angel takes out the other vampire in a nicely choreographed fight scene.
After accepting the girl's thanks, with a lot more grace than in Season 1, Angel takes his leave only to be confronted by an entire Wolfram & Hart tactical unit. The unit pretends to be happy to hear that he's unharmed. Less happy? Angel. Especially when he discovers that he's wearing a tracking pin in his lapel. His mood gets even better when the girl is forced to sign a disclaimer (involving her immortal soul, of course) and pose for pictures.
