I feel really sorry for Angel when he has that vision of being the mail boy while Spike is the champion.
Connor’s whole arc made me more upset than possibly anything Whedon’s ever done, just because when Connor was a baby Angel was the cutest daddy ever. I knew there was no way they could keep having him around, complicating things so much with his helpless need for constant protection, but once he was gone I wish he’d just stayed gone.
Angel and Faith have been and will always be my favorite OTP of any series, but I don’t mean that in the typical, romantic way. I see their love as strictly platonic, and I love that the Angel and Faith series captures that relationship in a way that I never felt was completely explored or addressed in either ATS or BTVS. The chemistry between them as just being close friends, to me, is more rewarding than the romantic relationship Angel had with Buffy.
When I first watched it, I didn’t like the finale, it didn’t seem right as the show finale. But rewatching it, you really start to see how good it really is and I loved it the second time
I’ve only been able to watch the episode where Cordy dies once, it broke me
Before Fred got together with anyone, I could see that the show was steering toward setting her up with either Gunn or Wesley. I was pretty sure it would be Wesley, but was pleasantly surprised when she ended up with Gunn - and they turned out to be awesome! They are still my favorite couple on the show, and I wish they hadn’t broken up.
I met Andy Hallett (Lorne) at a small Buffy/Angel convention in my hometown; we talked about the show, and about our lives, and he was one of the funniest people I had ever met. He signed an autograph for me before I left. I was pretty devestated when I found out he had passed away, because I felt like I had known him alot longer.
Connor was such a brat I don’t think he even counted as a good thing Angel and Darla did together.
