Angel Not Fade Away *Spoilers*

did any one else think the end episode was a little disappointing? i mean don't get me wrong, it was a absolutely brilliant episode up until the end but it was almost as though they could not think of a good way to end it so they left it with a open ending

just wondering what everyone else thinks?

Angel 15 ang sumagot

I was pissed that they left it like that actually.

Though I read online that Amy Acker said Gunn was always suppose to be a vampire, and that James thought that Spike and Illyria might have started some sort of relationship.

Oh, and that David Fury pitched an idea to Joss where Spike get's the shanshu because Angel gives it to him, and then Spike goes back to Buffy because David Fury felt that Buffy was in love with Spike by season seven.

well spuffy fans are supposed to say that... :) I dunno...I have mixed feelings. I loved the last show, I thought Angel really went out with a bang. But at the same time, I wanted more. I wanted a definate conclusion (mainly cuz I don't read the comics)

nika where do you get all this exclusive stuff from?

I go to a lot of different forums and pick it up from other fans, lol. Or from Wikipedia. Other sites, mainly just browsing and remembering it all, lol. Brian Lynch has said that Gunn was always suppose to be a vampire, and that Amy Acker spilled that in 2005. Most I hear about in other Spuffy forums.

James Marsters also mentioned he thought that Illyria and Spike would have had a relationship if there had been a season six, apparently he said that to Amy and that was mentioned in Wikipedia. Though I don't use that one much since fans can edit the articles to suit what they want.

The David Fury one I got from a Spuffy quotes site, lol. Can you tell what I spend my time doing on the computer? I use to be really big in the Harry Potter fandom, but now I barely spend any time in it, Buffy fandom has taken over my life for the past few years, lol. It's an addiction! My best friend keeps saying one of these days she's going to drag me away from my computer by my hair!

I remember Joss also did this little joke ending for Angel before they knew that there were going to be comics in which Angel looses an arm, Spike gets the shanshu, Gunn dies, and Illyria turns back into Fred, or something like that. I don't remember all of it exactly.

Hmmm I couldn't really think of a better way for a series to end... really, I hated the cliffhanger at the start, but I started to really respect it cause it actually made you think about what would happen next. I like that. It doesn't have the cliché happy ending like any other serie or movie would, and I like it that way <3 NFA rules :) Angel forever! ~<3

I dunno, I just really liked it, as I said, not from the start, but because it makes you think I started to like it :3

I absolutely love the episode, I was just gutted that it had to end. The only thing that disappointed me was that Spike didn't get much of a good scrap, would've liked to have seen him in more of a tussle. That aside though the ep is beyond cool, Angels' fight with Hamilton is brilliant - even when Conner turns up, Wesleys death is done superbly and is probably the most touching moment on Angel (along with IWRY) and all the dialogue in the alley is brilliant

"You're supposed to wear that red stuff on the inside Charlie boy..."

I just love that whole moment; their reaction to hearing of Wesleys death, the fact that Gunn is almost dead and the way they all wanna go out fighting. When it first ended I couldn't believe it had done so like that but now I love it coz in my head I know what happens...

...Buffy & Faith turn up with a boat-load of slayers & Willow and together they all proceed to kick ass. Conner would probably have followed Angel to the alley as well.

That's my version anyways. I have read somewhere also that Gunn was always going to be turned eventually and he'd be one of the bad guys in S6...gotta say that would've been cool.

I still hold out some lingering hope for more Angel and I'd love them to do an Angel/Buffy movie but the more time that goes by the less likely it seems.

I know they had a plan for doing a Spike movie after Angel ended, but James Marsters said he would only do it if it was produced sometimes in the five years after Angel ended.

But it's unlikely now as that five years is up, and there isn't much talk about it anymore now.

Yeah, it was a good episode (apart from Wesley dying) but i think they should have done something more definte withbthe ending. I liked Angel's comment about the dragon. :-)
