* Angel allowing Darla and Drusilla to massacre Holland Manners and the other Wolfram & Hart employees in "Reunion". While the episode can also double as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for some viewers, as it involves Angel making Manners suffer a KarmicDeath for all the hell he's caused Angel throughout the last year by [[HoistByHisOwnPetard letting him die by the hands of the very people he hired and resurrected]] and throwing the "[[IronicEcho And yet, somehow, I just can't seem to care]]" line back in his face, the moment is played as very dark in the episode itself. There's the build-up to Angel's arrival, where Darla and Drusilla stalk the room and take glee in terrifying the trapped lawyers. There's the WhamLine of Angel saying that he won't do anything to stop them, which causes the score to reach a haunting crescendo. There's the genuine desperation in Manners' face as he begs Angel to reconsider. There's Angel closing the door and locking it shut while the sound of the Wolfram & Hart employees' screams echo in the background. And then there's the cut to Angel back at the office, having explained everything that happened to Wesley, Gunn, and Cordelia, who all stare back at him in horrified shock and [[WhatTheHellHero call him out on going too far.]]

** Lorne's offhanded threat to Eve, delivered so casually and coming from the virtually pacifistic reader... BewareTheNiceOnes indeed. And the two in question are Spike and Angel.
--> '''Lorne:''' Here's the thing, Eve. You're going to sing for me, and I'm going to read you right now. And here's one more thing. Winifred Burkle once told me, after a sinful amount of Chinese food and in lieu of absolutely nothing, I think a lot of people would choose to be green, your shade, if they had the choice. If I hear one note one quarter note that tells me you had any involvement, these two won't even have time to kill you.

* The possibility of Angelus. To elaborate, Angelus is one of the most dangerous vampires, if not ''the'' most, in the Buffy-verse, and he is always inside Angel. Those around Angel (Cordelia, Wesley, Gunn, Fred, etc.) have to live with the fact that if just a few things go wrong, they might be facing "The Scourge of Europe," whose mere ''voice'' turns Cordelia into a whimpering, shaking mess. It speaks volumes that Angel considers a willingness to kill him a very good quality in his allies and friends.

* "Blind Date" has the moment when the blind asassin casually impales the kind old man, scaring all the children nearby.
** There is an example of MookHorrorShow later on in the episode, when Angel turns the asassin's ability against her. We cut to her perspective as she loses sight of Angel, only to then get brutally beaten to death in the end.

to:

* Drusilla's return in "The Trial". She walks into the room and doesn't say a word but you just knew badness was about to go down.

* ''A Hole in the World'', [[spoiler:Fred's internal organs are liquefied in order to hollow her out for Illyria to use]].
** Gunn's confrontation with [[spoiler: Knox]], when [[spoiler: he]] is revealed as TheMole. [[spoiler: Knox's]] breif glance into the camera is ''chilling''.

revealed as TheMole is truly terrifying.

* The vampires in "War Zone" have a moment of DangerouslyGenreSavvy when fighting Gunn and his gang. [[spoiler: Instead of waiting for night-time, they dress themselves in GasMaskLongcoat style, and force everyone outside in broad daylight, kidnapping and turning Gunn's sister]]. Also counts as an AwesomeMoment, albeit a horribly twisted one.

* The possibility of, instead of a moment of pure happiness, Angel has one really bad day. This comes when Darla and Drusilia torment him: he reacts by ditching his friends, letting Wolfram & Hart be fed on by the super vampire duo, wages a one bloodsucker war on the demon world, before burning Darla and Dru alive in a scene that tries so hard to head for TearJerker territory. Forget Angelus, ''this'' is the most dangerous vampire in the verse.
