The character played by Julia Lee, who first appeared in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Lie to Me (1997) as the self-named "Chanterelle," reappeared under several different names over the runs of both Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1996) and Angel (1999). At the start of her next appearance on "Buffy" (Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Anne (1998) she had changed her name to Lily; during that episode, she states she had once joined a cult that had renamed her "Sister Sunshine;" and at the end of the episode, Buffy gives her both a job and her newest sobriquet, "Anne" (Buffy's real middle name). By the time the character first appears on "Angel," she has kept "Anne" as her first name and added the last name "Steele" to it. Although it is never mentioned on-screen, the original teleplay for "Lie to Me" indicated that her original name was Joan (which is also the name that Buffy chooses for herself when she has amnesia in Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Tabula Rasa (2001).

For a large portion of season 5 Spike is incorporeal. He is not meant to be able to interact with physical objects, and is seen passing through people and walls. However as is the case in most scenarios of this nature, he is inexplicably able to sit in chairs or occasionally interact with larger set pieces. See more »
What? You don't drink so now no-one gets to?
I don't expect you to understand.
Oh, oh I... I understand. I was a Puritan, remember?
It's gotta end.
Why? Because you say so? How does that work exactly? You just wake up one morning and decide "OK, now I'm good?"
No, Angelus. It doesn't end. It never, ever ends. It just goes on and on.
It's not the only thing that goes on and on.

Two deleted scenes appear on the Season 3 DVDs. The first is a segment from Cordelia's fantasy sitcom 'Cordy' from the episode 'Birthday' and the second is a hilarous sequence where Wesley has a fantasy about Fred and himself doing ballet from the episode 'Waiting In The Wings' See more »
Angel had its links to Buffy, there were crossovers and tie ins, and the similarities at the start of the show were noticeable. But as the seasons progressed and the characters became darker and the plots heavier, it seemed what we were watching was not entirely the same. As times have progressed, it seems audiences desire a darker more gritty version of TV, with shows that don't shy away from the harsher aspects of life, the Wire to name one, are shows favoured for. Angel had its comedic episodes, but the over arching themes were of the dark fight against darkness, being forced into positions where the right path isn't always visible and the seeking of salvation. This show was brilliant, and though it has carried on in comics, it will be sorely missed.
