The narcissism jokes are played with through all five seasons, beginning with Spike mocking his obsession with his appearance and his delight in melodrama to leave a lasting impression on the people he rescues. The writers made it clear that Angel was supposed to be a narcissist, but given that they loved using it for laughs, I think they didn\'t want accuracy, just comedy, making it badly handled. That may well be better placed under ItsAllAboutMe than here, despite the show wanting him to be regarded as a narcissist.

I assume the example\'s used because when he\'s looking in the mirror he obsesses about his hair which becomes the focus of the narcissistic joke in the scene. While the audience can observe he hasn\'t seen himself for a very long time, the joke isn\'t that he\'s obsessed because he hasn\'t seen himself for so long but because he always worries about his appearance so much and now he can see he\'s not portraying the image he thought he was.

That\'s the example used because when he\'s looking in the mirror he obsesses about his hair. While the mirror scene is played for laughs because he hasn\'t seen himself for a long time, the narcissism jokes are played with through all five seasons, beginning with Spike mocking his obsession with looking after his hair (which the mirror joke played on) and swanning off in a way that emphasises the heroic departure after rescuing a damsel, and just going on from there.

The writers have never played the narcissism seriously except when Angelus is in charge (even then, he can end up in EvilIsHammy territory). I\'d have to rewatch the show, but the writers did make it clear that Angel\'s supposed to be a narcissist. He\'s a very bad example of one, however, as the writers only went for comedy rather than accuracy.
