Storyline

In the series finale, Angel reveals that his questionable moral behavior has been part of a bigger plan: to destroy The Circle of the Black Thorn and show the Senior Partners that the power of good can still make a difference. Wesley struggles with helping Illyria adapt to the world, scolding her for her attempts to take on Fred's form. As Gunn continues his quest of self-discovery, Lorne becomes more aware of the lack of happiness in the world. Harmony attempts to seduce Marcus Hamilton for information, Lindsey makes an important decision regarding his alliance, and Eve continues to deal with being mortal. As Spike comes closer to understanding the nature of heroism, Angel pays a visit to the one person he truly loves. On Angel's bidding, the gang goes out and spends each day as if it were their last... Written by TheGreenSaga

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
