Feats of clay make be a weak episode, but offers a glimpse of what Phoebe was up to while she was away. While the A and B plots aren't spectacular in the least I enjoy the early seasons for the simplify and keeping the series character based.

Doug the waiter is fleshed out more with a sweet twist in his arch and offers a few chuckles along the way. Victor Browne (Clay) is sexy, dangerous and a good guy to boot making him a perfect match. Phoebe shows good judgment and how much faith she has in humanity by her actions instead of assuming the worse right off.

Another aspect to enjoy is the rich costuming with the Guardian and her mannerisms really sell the mystic nature of her character. Still it seems a little out there for this show never really exploring her past or what kinda creature she is. Plus it was slow, no real meat to keep you tuned and feels like forever until you reach the credits.

Not my favorite, but it really showed Alyssa Milano's acting chops and made her my favorite character. It was enduring and does raise an important question on who deserves to be saved or not.
