Synopsis by Mark Deming
Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar) makes a startling discovery after making love with Angel (David Boreanaz) for the first time -- the act of love has destroyed his human soul and turned him into the evil Angelus, a demon with the face of an angel. Angelus is now on the prowl for a human sacrifice, and he has Buffy in mind as his first kill; Buffy must do battle with him, while also fending off the all-powerful demon "The Judge" (Brian Thompson), unleashed by Spike (James Marsters) and Drusilla (Juliet Landau), who can now kill his victims simply by looking at them. While Buffy's romantic problems are rather severe, her close friend Willow (Alyson Hannigan) isn't doing too well either when she learns that Xander (Nicholas Brendon) has gotten involved with Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter). "Innocence" was the second half of a two-part episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which began with "Surprise."
