Trivia

Charles Gunn uses a pair of retractable stakes, hidden in his sleeves, while fighting the senatorial candidate's cronies. These are exactly like the ones used by Angel in the series' first season. See more »

Goofs

During the exchange between Angel and Harmony near the beginning of the episode, Angel says that he doesn't recall what it is like to be human. Technically, he should remember, as he was human back in Season One's "I Will Remember You". See more »

Brilliant Ending
19 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Angel is by far one of the best series i've seen on TV yet, however i have to admit i did have my doubts about whether or not David Boreanaz would be able to carry this series and make it watchable but he proved me wrong and it's also very well written my favourite quote from this whole series is from the previous episode Power Play - Angel: "I'm Talking about killing Every! Single! Member! of the blackthorn.................... We don't walk away from that, and Finally my favourite Character Weasley: Your influence on this world is over the rest of the circle will whither and die............. like you're about to, i don't own these quotes they belong to joss whedon and David greenwalt i am merely stating how much i enjoyed the series and this final episode i personally think it was the perfect way to end the series but i have to admit when i watched the final episode to the very end i screamed and wanted to throw the DVD out the window hehe anyways a great by a great writer Joss Whedon
