Quotes

[first lines]
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Fred?
[Illyria walks past Wesley toward the mirror, ignoring him]
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Illyria?
Illyria: My name. You would presume to speak my name? Because I am returned in the body of a human, you think you can speak to me. It's disgusting.
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Who is Winifred Burkle?
Illyria: I thought the humans would have long died out by now. Instead, you've grown bold.
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: So you don't know who Fred is?
Illyria: Nor care. Bleat at me no longer. We're done.
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce: Yes.

This Is The Second Part To The Previous Angel Episode "A Hole In The World". As Angel and the gang try desperately to bring Fred back, Wesley begins to understand that the ancient demon Illyria, now fused with Fred's body, is here to stay. Exhausting all options for saving Fred, the gang switches gears to stop Illyria and her plan for global domination. This Shows How A Death No Matter Who It Is Can Be Tragic. Everyone In This Episode Grieves Over The Death Of Fred. At The Beginning Of The Series (The Whole TV Show) Wesley Is Just A Clumsy, Smart, Obedient Guy At The End Of This Episode He Is Sort Of A Bad-Ass. This Show Has Many Character Arcs Like That. Illyria Is An Okay Character. This Episode Is The Last Episode With Knox In It Because Wesley Kills Him Out Of Anger That He Was Responsible. There Would've Been No Better Way To End Off A 2 Part Episode Than This. I Know Technically Its Not 2 Part But It Carries On The Story Of "A Hole In The World".
