Trivia

Co-creator Joss Whedon was set to write and direct the previous episode, "Smile Time" (5.14), but he came up with this one and entrusted the other to Ben Edlund. According to Whedon, he was reading Shakespeare with actors Alexis Denisof and Amy Acker and suddenly decided to kill Fred and allow Acker to play an entire different character. See more »

Goofs

Spike is looking down at the "hole in the World" that's the cemetery of demons. He imagines that at the antipodes a New Zealander could have the same view but reversed. But he's in England, and the antipodes of England are in open Pacific Ocean. The antipodes of New Zealand is actually southern Spain. See more »

The Saddest Episode Of Angel
30 June 2010 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

When an ancient sarcophagus arrives in the laboratory at Wolfram & Hart, Fred opens a small compartment and is infected by an ancient disease that slowly begins to kill her. As Angel and Spike travel across the world in order to help her, Wesley slowly begins to realize that there may be no stopping this disease. Fred Is A Character We All Knew & Grew To Like Unlike Cordelia That Just Had A Character Arc From Buffy To Angel From Being A B!tch To A Normal Person. Fred However Wasn't A Pain. This Episode Is Written By Joss Whedon So Thats A Plus. When Gunn Just Hit Knox Twice I Was Like "You Used Too Little Anger On Him" I Mean I Would've Got A Sword Out & Cut His Head In Half For Playing Fred. The Only Thing Funny About This Episode Is The Cavemen V.S Astronaut Argument. This Is The Saddest Episode & I've Seen "Hero", "Your Welcome", "I Will Remember You" & This Reign's Superior.

In Memory Of Andy Hallett 4 August 1975-29 March 2009

Joss Whedon Is One Of The Best Writers EVER!
