Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
The return of the Groosalugg (Mark Lutz) and the incipient romance between Gunn (J. August Richards) and Fred (Amy Acker) lead to tension at Angel Investigations. Angel (David Boreanaz), despairing of ever getting together with Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter), feels overshadowed by Groo's derring-do but compelled to help Cordy and the hero be happy. Cordy is reluctant to consummate her relationship with the otherdimensional warrior because of the prophesy that sleeping with him would drain her of the visions she tried so hard to retain (see "There's No Place Like Plrtz Glrb"). Angel helps the pair obtain a mystical prophylactic, but a vision dampens their ardor. Eventually, Angel gets the chance to shine in battle alongside Groo when Fred and Gunn, too busy making out to do their jobs, get captured by a tree-monster who uses a high-speed Internet connection to lure unlucky would-be lovers to his underground lair and devours them. Only Angel's vampiric abilities prove capable of defeating the creature. Taking the high road, the newly triumphant hero insists that Cordy and Groo go on a long vacation and enjoy their newfound romance. Meanwhile, Wesley (Alexis Denisof) feels depressed about Fred getting together with Gunn, so he busies himself with research about the prophecies regarding Angel's son. Originally broadcast February 18, 2002, on the WB network, Angel: Couplet marked season three, episode 14 of the supernatural comedy drama.
