Over time, he began copying Angelus' "signature" of the time, carving a cross-shaped mark on the face of his victims in order to spite God. The two appear to have maintained a relationship throughout Angelus' time as a soulless vampire, as they were scheduled to meet in Italy before Angelus' soul was restored.

The Beast sought Angelus' aid in killing the Svear Priestesses, a group who wished to banish the Beast, whom he could not kill himself.

December 25, Angelus won a card game in Dublin, Ireland, and when his opponent, a man named Daniel who was to be married the next day, could not pay, he took his winnings by killing him.
Drusilla was "cursed" with the "sight"; the ability of foresight, something her mother saw as "an affront to the Lord. On the day she was to take her holy orders, Angelus massacred the convent. After having sex with Darla on top of Drusilla, Angelus finally pushed her over the edge into complete insanity. It was at that point that he turned her into a vampire. Drusilla was Angelus' "masterpiece", an everlasting testament of his finest cruelty, as her immortality meant that her torment would never end. Drusilla joined Angelus and Darla, as the duo became a trio. When he realized how much William cared for Drusilla, Angelus had sex with her just to hurt him and teach him a lesson, an action William would never forgive.
The woman had a young son, whom Angelus killed afterwards. Angelus and Darla outwardly wondered why they hadn't yet killed William, who had taken the alias "Spike", for his dangerously rebellious behavior. Angelus made an attempt to threaten him with mention of the Slayer, but Spike, who had never heard of the Slayer before, became instantly intrigued, and went on to develop a long-lasting obsession with the idea of killing a Slayer.
He would eventually murder two Slayers, and became a particularly renowned vampire as a result. Despite being soulless, he was moved to tears during the performance. Petersburg, Russia. Angelus and Spike attempted to take revenge on the Immortal, but failed miserably. June, In China, during the Boxer Rebellion, Angelus tried to resume his life with Darla, who had abandoned him after finding out that his soul had been restored, but found himself able to kill only animals, murderers, and rapists while protecting innocents from Darla. Darla noticed this, angry at his deception and inability to kill innocent humans while Spike had recently killed a Slayer.
She confronted him about it gave him the chance to prove himself by feeding on a baby whose parents Darla killed. He realized that he cannot be a monster anymore and apologetically refused, as he instead chooses to quickly rescue the child by taking it and quickly jumping out of a window to flee from Darla.
This can be one of Angel's first redeeming and truly heroic act in his existence, proving that despite his past as Angelus, Angel truly he has the potential to be a selfless savior. Angel fought Boone for three-and-a-half hours until the sun came up and Boone honorably let him go. When they call him Angelus he informs them that he has shortened his name to "Angel".
They sank him to the bottom of the ocean to rescue an American submarine crew from three vampires the Nazis had captured as part of their paranormal research activities: Spike, Nostroyev , and The Prince of Lies. After the American crew had captured the German submarine, the vampires had escaped their bonds and murdered most of the crew; the few survivors sought refuge behind a locked hatch.
After the submarine suffered damage from a depth charge, Angel was forced to sire a mortally wounded Ensign Sam Lawson , as he was the only person who was able to repair the damage, and while Angel didn't care about the mission, he needed it to succeed to get the US government to leave him alone, and he needed the submarine so he would not get trapped on the ocean floor.
After these events, Angel went underground until the war was over. During this time, Angel attempted to stay to himself, avoiding interaction with other residents and patrons. Despite the numerous strange incidents, murders and suicides running rampant throughout the hotel caused by a demon , he looked the other way when his help would have made a difference. After finding a young woman named Judy Kovacs hiding in his room, Angel tried to preserve his isolation, first by disarming and removing the man chasing her, then by ejecting Judy.
However, her repeated attempts to interact with him allowed the two to form a budding friendship, which was very surprising and rare for Angel at that time in his life. Meanwhile, hotel staff and residents, including Judy, continued to become warped and Angel decided to help. He discovered the presence of a Thesulac demon , a paranoia demon affecting the humans in the hotel, but by the time Angel learned how to defeat it and obtained the items required, the entire hotel was overcome with pathological paranoia.
Mad with demon-induced hysteria, the hotel residents and staff turned on Judy after their suspicions were raised by a private detective. To save herself, Angel's new friend pointed the mob in his direction, saying he had been found with blood. With rabid fury, they ambushed Angel, beat him, and then hanged him. Embittered by the consequences of becoming close to a human, Angel abandoned Judy and everyone else.
Instead of destroying Thesulac, as it was in his power to do, even when the demon gave him the opportunity, he personally gave the vicious demon free reign to prey upon and ravage the inhabitants of the hotel unhindered. Late s: In New York , Angel witnessed a robbery at a doughnut shop. After the robber shot the employee and fled, Angel stayed with the man as he died. Unable to resist the sight and smell of the clerk's still-warm blood, Angel succumbed to his urges and fed on the body.
Deeply disgusted by his own weakness and realizing he could never be a part of human society, Angel fled the shop, and then exiled himself to a life of homelessness, living in alleyways and feeding on rats. Angel traveled to Hemery High School in Los Angeles, where he witnessed Buffy being called as the Slayer and her initial training under her Watcher , Merrick , as well as her emotional turmoil caused by her new duties and her parents' deteriorating marriage. Filled with a new purpose in life, Angel resolved to help the Slayer, with whom he had fallen in love, and moved to Sunnydale, where Buffy was predestined to move the following year.
Angel had fallen in love with Buffy the moment he'd laid eyes on her in Los Angeles. Soon afterward, he moved into his own apartment in Sunnydale, where he put himself on a strict diet of pig's blood. He didn't show himself until after Buffy had relocated to Sunnydale with her mother; he met her in an alley, at which time he warned her about the Harvest and gave her a silver cross for protection. They kissed in Buffy's bedroom, which caused Angel to unintentionally reveal his vampire face. Though he fled, Buffy was privy to his secret, and sought to kill him after she mistakenly believed he had attacked her mother.
In reality, Angel's sire, Darla, had tricked Joyce Summers into inviting her inside and then bit her. Angel battled with Darla, and managed to kill her when Buffy involved herself in the fight. Afterward, he revealed that he was unique among his kind for possessing a soul, as a result of the curse placed upon him as a punishment for murdering the favorite daughter of a Romani clan. Though they both tried to deny their feelings, they simply could not resist their growing passion, and eventually began dating.
Spike and Drusilla's arrival in Sunnydale during Buffy's sophomore year created tension in her relationship with Angel.

When she witnessed him talking to Drusilla in a park, he was forced to give Buffy and the Scoobies insight into his particularly bloody history. He was subsequently kidnapped by Spike's minions in order to restore Drusilla to health. Though Buffy managed to rescue him in time to save his life, Drusilla still recovered. Angel was tasked with traveling abroad to hide one of the pieces of the Judge.
Before leaving, he gave her a Claddagh ring for her seventeenth birthday, a traditional courting gift in Ireland. Before he could depart, he was apprehended by Spike and his followers, who planned to have him watch Buffy die at the hands of the newly arisen demon. They escaped Spike's minions and fled to Angel's apartment, where they consummated their relationship. Because Angel experienced a moment of pure happiness, his curse was lifted and his soul was once again removed. He reverted to his soulless state, and swiftly returned to his old ways. Furious and disgusted that Buffy had caused him to feel love, he vowed to destroy her in a way similar to what he had done to Drusilla.
Angelus allied himself once again with Spike and Drusilla and took residence in their factory. Resenting the humiliation he felt because Buffy had made him feel like a human being, Angelus took immense pleasure in tormenting the Slayer and her friends. First, he helped Spike and Drusilla deploy the Judge to incinerate the human race. He even revealed the fact that Buffy had sex with him to her mother Joyce, pretending to be an obsessed, unstable, love-struck boyfriend. Angelus' reign of terror culminated in his murder of Jennifer Calendar , which served him in two ways.
Second, Angelus used Jenny's death to viciously torment Rupert Giles , Jenny's paramour and the person whom Buffy depended on the most, being her Watcher. Enraged, Giles went out and tried to kill Angelus, though only succeeded in burning down the factory he lived in. Along with Spike and Drusilla, Angelus then moved to an abandoned mansion. After Angelus orchestrated this masterpiece of terror, Drusilla drew his attention to a new opportunity for destruction and chaos.
Angelus widened his focus and began a scheme to awaken the demon Acathla and bring about the end of the world. Buffy was determined to stop him. Not knowing how to perform the ritual, Angelus kidnapped Giles and tortured him, wanting to know how to do it, though also doing it for the sake of his own enjoyment. In their final fight, Angelus was defeated by Buffy during a full-blown sword fight.
Since Acathla could only be stopped by the blood of the individual who activated him, Buffy was forced to impale her beloved Angel to save the world. Impaled on the Slayer's enchanted sword, Angel could only stand there as he was sucked into the closing vortex. A few months later, Angel was unexpectedly released from this hell dimension, reappearing in his mansion in a feral state. Buffy aided him in secret, fostering his rehabilitation. Angel remained feral and she had to chain him up, but he eventually broke out and came to Buffy's rescue when one of her classmates turned into a monster and attacked her.
Angel killed him and finally recognized Buffy afterward, regaining his sanity. When they discovered that Angel had returned and Buffy had not told them, Buffy's friends were furious, though Angel managed to win back some good faith and acceptance in the gang after he saved Willow from being killed by the corrupt former Watcher Gwendolyn Post.
That fear—that this purpose was not for the cause of good—grew in Angel's mind at Christmastime as he began to experience what he believed to be hallucinations. However, he was actually being haunted by the First Evil, who claimed to be the one that freed him from Acathla's hell a claim that remains unconfirmed.
The First, able to adopt the appearances of Angelus' victims, drove Angel ever closer to the brink of madness by lashing him with guilt and, ultimately, tempting him to end it all by losing his soul once again and killing Buffy in the throes of passion. In despair, Angel chose to kill himself by waiting outside for the sun to rise, rather than risk the life of his beloved. To Angel's shock and consternation, an apparent miracle occurred and it snowed so heavily that Christmas morning that the sun was blotted out all day.
Buffy meanwhile, had stopped the order of monks that were summoning the First, ending Angel's torment. From that moment, he began to entertain the hope that his return might have some purpose for good after all. When the latest Slayer, Faith Lehane, began to go rogue after accidentally killing the Deputy Mayor , Angel attempted to rehabilitate her and nearly succeeded, but his chances at redeeming her were ruined by the interference of Buffy's new Watcher, Wesley Wyndam-Pryce , and a special ops team sent by the Watchers Council , who only succeeded in driving Faith even farther down the path of darkness.
After that miraculous snowy day in southern California, Angel and Buffy tried to build an actual relationship, taking in the occasional movie, getting away on more scenic patrols, and enjoying moonlit picnics in the cemetery. But it was not to be. Even before their one and only night together, Angel had worried about Buffy's future with him, his inability to give her a family, or even a remotely normal human life. Upon hearing his own concerns reflected back to him from such disparate sources as Mayor Wilkins and Joyce, Angel at last made the difficult decision to leave Sunnydale and Buffy, hoping to give her some semblance of a normal life.
Angel broke up with Buffy in the sewer right before her prom night, but went to the dance to let Buffy have her perfect high school moment. Before the Mayor's Ascension , Faith infected Angel with the Killer of the Dead , a poison specifically designed to kill vampires that could only be cured by the blood of a Slayer, in order to distract Buffy. Having failed to bring a dead Faith to Angel to cure him, Buffy forced Angel to feed on her.
Even though Angel resisted at first, he was enraged when Buffy hit him enough that he indulged himself on Buffy's blood, almost killing her but stopping before he could drain her completely. Having quickly recovered from his poison, Angel rushed Buffy to the hospital where he stopped the grieving Mayor from smothering Buffy.
Angel promised Buffy that he would stay until Sunnydale High School 's graduation day, to help avert the Mayor's Ascension. He also warned her that, if they survived the ordeal, he would leave without saying goodbye, as it would be too painful to do so. They survived with Angel commanding a small number of fighters to surround the Mayor's vampire henchmen. After the destruction of Sunnydale High, Angel, with a last, long look at the Slayer, kept his final promise and departed for Los Angeles. In Los Angeles, Angel again began to isolate himself from humanity, in order to combat the lust for human blood that had been awakened within him after feeding on Buffy..
Soon enough, he received support in his attempts to redeem himself in the service of others. Doyle encouraged Angel not to shy away from human interaction, warning him that isolating himself from humanity would eventually lead to him forgetting why they need to be protected, and feeding on them. Almost immediately thereafter, Angel ran into Cordelia Chase , a former classmate of Buffy's who had moved to Los Angeles to find wealth and fame. The trio formed Angel Investigations, a private detective agency whose mission statement was to "help the helpless.
The trio managed to do a lot of good, but when Doyle had a vision of Buffy in danger at Thanksgiving, Angel immediately returned to Sunnydale to help against Hus , a Native American vengeance spirit accidentally set free by Xander Harris ' construction crew. However, Angel made his presence known to all of the Scoobies except Buffy under the belief that his presence would only distract and endanger her even more.
Upon discovering the truth, Buffy, hurt that Angel never revealed his presence to her, immediately traveled to Los Angeles to confront him, and the two agreed to stay away from one another for the time being. Just as she was about to leave, however, the two were attacked by a Mohra demon. Though the duo succeeded in wounding it, the Mohra escaped, and Buffy and Angel immediately tracked it down in the sewers.
The two became separated, and Angel seemingly killed the demon, and in doing so, its blood mixed with his own and resurrected him, making him human again. Buffy and Angel revealed in finally being able to be happy together, but Angel soon discovered that the Powers That Be had not yet offered him forgiveness as he had not sufficiently atoned.
When Angel was nearly killed by the regenerated Mohra, Buffy managed to slay it with his help. Realizing that he would only ever be a burden to Buffy, and would be unable to protect her as a human, Angel made an impossibly painful decision: he had the Oracles rewind time to reverse his transformation into a human, leaving no one but himself with any memory of the incident. Eventually, Doyle, Angel's trusted friend and sole connection to the Powers That Be, sacrificed himself to save a group of innocents, leading Angel to become even more protective of those few he held dear.
Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, who had briefly served as Watcher to both Buffy and Faith in Sunnydale, arrived in Los Angeles around that time, claiming to be a "rogue demon hunter," a "lone wolf sort" who only worked solo. After their first case, however, Wesley was eager to stay and assist Angel and Cordelia, who had inherited the visions from the Powers that Be from Doyle, in their mission.
After an intense battle in which Faith seemed to have the upper hand, Faith broke down and pleaded with Angel to kill her. When Faith gave herself up to the police, he and Buffy got into an argument, during which Buffy used her relationship with her new boyfriend, Riley Finn , to attack him. In response, Angel launched a tirade against Buffy, reminding her that, while it was great that she had moved on, he himself could not and had no one with whom to share his pain, culminating in him telling Buffy that she didn't know him anymore and that she had no right to just show up with her "great new life" and tell him how to do things in "his city" before harshly ordering her to go back to Sunnydale.
Immediately afterward, Angel regretted his words and traveled to Sunnydale to make amends. Though he ran afoul of Riley and the Initiative in the process, he managed to get to Buffy and apologize, who also apologized for butting into his life, and Angel departed after informing Buffy that he didn't like Riley, much to Buffy's amusement. Later, Angel and his teammates uncover the Shanshu Prophecy. The prophecy reveals that the vampire with a soul will play a pivotal role in the apocalypse, and upon fulfilling his destiny, would be rewarded by being made human.
The Angel Investigations team enlisted the help of demon karaoke bar-owner, Lorne , initially known only as the Host. Both prescient and empathic, Lorne could sense the futures of humans and demons when they sang. In an attempt to control him, the firm resurrected his sire and former lover, Darla, though she came back as a human rather than as a vampire. Angel became obsessed with Darla on two fronts; at first, he wanted to prove that she was actually back and not just a figment of his imagination and second, he desired to save her when it was revealed that she was dying from the same disease that was killing her before she was sired by the Master.
An epiphany followed the desperate act,  and Angel realized that his purpose was still to do all the good he could, even if he couldn't do all the good he wanted to. Having hoped to get Angel back, Darla was disgusted and infuriated by Angel's epiphany, and left Los Angeles. The group finally reconciled, and Wesley was appointed the official leader. But Angel's relationship with his teammates, particularly Cordelia, was strained, though things improved rather quickly. After the death of Buffy's mother , Angel returned to Sunnydale to comfort Buffy, and the two spent a night discussing how life would continue after Joyce's death.
Angel assured Buffy that she was strong and would find her way over time, and offered to stay in Sunnydale as long as she needed him, though she knew that he could not stay for long. Nonetheless, Buffy appreciated that he came, and he remained with her until sunrise. Afterward, Cordelia was sucked into Lorne's home dimension of Pylea , and the Angel Investigations team followed her. Eventually, after Angel defeated the undefeated Champion of Pylea, the Groosalugg , they returned with a new team member, Winifred "Fred" Burkle , in tow, and learned that Buffy had died.
Devastated by Buffy's death, Angel spent several months mourning her in a Tibetan monastery in Sri Lanka, returning despondent and believing that he had betrayed Buffy by continuing to live while she was dead, though Cordelia assured him that he was in fact honoring her memory by continuing to fight the good fight in Buffy's stead. After Buffy was resurrected a few months later by Willow, Angel was overjoyed and immediately went to meet her between Sunnydale and Los Angeles.
Twins Take Rubber Game From Angels
Before he had a chance to confess his feelings, however, Darla returned, miraculously pregnant. The previous year, Angel had endured trials in order to win a new life for Darla as she was dying. However, thanks to the one night of passion the two shared together, Darla became pregnant which was thought to be impossible for vampires. Influenced by the soul of the child growing inside her, because she was dead and therefore could not give birth to the child, Darla staked herself, leaving only a crying baby.
Angel was overcome with parental love, and named their child Connor , in recognition of his Irish heritage. False prophecies, time travelers, and betrayal led to Angel losing his infant son to an old enemy, Holtz, who abducted Connor soon after his birth, taking him to the dimension of Quor'toth , where time passed differently. Wesley unintentionally brought about the kidnapping due to uncovering a false prophecy that stated "the father will kill the son," and Angel attempted to kill Wesley in the hospital; Wesley was subsequently fired from Angel Investigations, while Angel resumed his position as the team's leader.
Unexpectedly, Connor returned days later, a young man of 18 or so who had been raised by Holtz to be a warrior and to believe that Angel was a soulless monster. Holtz took his own life in such a way that Connor was led to believe he was killed by Angel, making Connor hate his father and be determined to make him pay for the suffering he had caused Holtz and others.
Connor then sank his father to the bottom of the ocean in a steel coffin, while Cordelia ascended to a higher plane, the feelings shared between her and Angel still left unspoken. Rescued by Wesley from his watery prison, Angel's relationship with Connor was strained. It was complicated further by the return of an amnesiac Cordelia, who preferred to stay with Connor because he told her the truth while the others lied to her albeit because they thought it was for her own good.
When a very powerful demon known only as the Beast arrived and began an attempt to bring forth an apocalypse, Angel's worst fears were realized when he had to strip himself of his soul and revert to his evil self in order to defeat it, after Cordelia had a vision of soulless Angel facing the Beast in the past which Angel did not recall It was later revealed that a spell had been cast before the Beast's arrival which erased all reference to it in this dimension, with Angel being immune because he technically didn't exist when the spell was cast. While soulless Angel did indeed overcome the Beast, and was also deft enough to realize that the Beast was a mere "flunky" serving an even more powerful evil; the Beast he knew was only interested in smashing and slaughter, and it was unlikely that it would have become smarter in the years since his initial encounter with him.
Although he was momentarily free to wreak a little havoc of his own while soulless, Angel was recaptured and re-ensouled after a battle with Faith. Faith defeated Angel but when she refused to kill him, he regained the upper hand and drank from Faith, who had injected herself with the Orpheus drug. Faith who had almost died in her quest to capture him and Willow helped to accomplish Angel's restoration via a brief but violent internal mental battle between his soulless and souled states. After his soul was restored, Angel, using information that he had acquired during his freedom, figured out that the enemy he had been battling was a little closer to home than the group had previously considered.
He realized that whatever the Beast's "boss" was, it was using Cordelia's body to carry out its plans, and it had seduced Angel's son Connor over to its side, warping the youth further and increasing the gap between Angel and his son. Angel acted against all of his instincts and made a deal with his sworn enemy in exchange for them erasing Connor's memories and giving him a normal life, and trying to find a way to cure Cordelia who had gone into a coma. He saved Buffy from getting killed by Caleb , but she insisted that she finish the fight on her own. After the fight concluded, they shared a kiss while being unknowingly watched by Spike, along with The First Evil.
Angel wished to fight with her in the battle, but Buffy told him to go prepare his crew for a second front in case the Scoobies failed to stop the First. Angel then discussed with Buffy, Spike, the return of his soul, her feelings for him, the future. She told him that it would be a long time, if ever, but she sometimes saw a future with him.
Accepting this, Angel returned to Los Angeles to prepare the second front, hoping he would not have to use it, and told Buffy, "I ain't getting any older. Trying to battle evil from within the belly of the beast proved to be more difficult than even he had imagined, with the lines of good and evil becoming ever more gray with every action taken, and he soon discovered that his friends and allies in the Scooby Gang, including Buffy, had deemed him untrustworthy. Shortly after Angel assumed control of the law firm, matters were further complicated when Spike appeared as a ghost , emerging from the amulet Angel had given Buffy and that was then sent back to Angel in the mail.
Now both possessed souls, and both were still in love with Buffy; they had evolved into very different heroes in the war against evil. Forced to co-exist, they waged a protracted, insidious battle of wills, ending when they finally came to an understanding and accepted their unique brotherhood on their journey to redemption. When they battled over the Cup of Perpetual Torment — supposedly the key that would determine which of them was the true vampire champion — Spike told Angel "You had a soul forced on you.
As a curse. Make you suffer for all the horrible things you've done. Me, I fought for my soul, went through the demon trials, almost did me in a dozen times over, but I kept fighting. Because I knew it was the right thing to do.

It's my destiny. However, Spike's victory and subsequent role as a champion was later revealed to be part of Lindsey McDonald's plans to undermine Angel's confidence and new position, allowing Angel to regain his focus and faith in himself after a final meeting with Cordelia. With Lindsey out of the way, Spike and Angel came to an understanding that let the two of them operate as a lethal team when the two ended up fighting side-by-side, using their long experience of each other's skills to operate in near-perfect tandem.
While investigating the sinister children's program, Smile Time , Angel was turned into a puppet. He remained a puppet for several days until the spell wore off. It was around this time that he realized werewolf Nina Ash was attracted to him, and the pair started dating. Angel was elated when Cordelia finally awoke from her coma. Cordelia and Angel discussed how skewed he got from his path and how lost he was without her, Cordelia was shocked to learn that he and the others had taken over "Evil Incorporated. Angel was later reunited with his son, Connor, when the latter was forced to fulfill his destiny by killing the demon Sahjhan.
As a result of this, Connor's memories were returned to him and he remembered that Angel was his father. Angel finally understood that he would never be able to completely stop the forces of evil, but that he could temporarily sever the Senior Partners' hold on Earth and stop their apocalyptic plans. To this end, Angel pretended to delve deeper into the darkness and fooled the Senior Partners and his teammates into thinking that he desired to join the Circle of the Black Thorn , the Senior Partners' instruments on Earth. He even went so far as to sign away his candidacy for the Shanshu Prophecy to prove his loyalty, exploiting the Circle's inability to realize that he would do good for its own sake rather than to receive a reward.
Together with his comrades, Angel prepared to destroy the Circle of the Black Thorn, a battle that none of them expected to survive. He instructed his teammates to spend the day as if it was their last as he spent it by visiting Connor who revealed to his father that he regained his memories and appreciated what Angel did for him but wanted to keep it at that. In this effort, Gunn was badly wounded, and Wesley was killed. Gunn manages to make it to the meeting point, the alley behind the Hyperion Hotel, where he, Angel, Spike, and Illyria engaged in battle with the dark armies that the Senior Partners had sent against them.
At the same moment, they rendered Angel human to deprive him of his strength and immortality when he needed it most; unaware of the change, he leaped off a rooftop, breaking his legs and back. He was discovered by Wesley, who returned as a ghost to act as liaison between Angel and the Senior Partners.
The process took months, and Angel spent every second awake and in agony; to endure the pain, he spoke to an imaginary Cordelia. Believing he was talking to him, the dragon came to believe its own name was Cordelia. With his body healed, Angel, using various spells and enchantments to provide himself with his vampiric abilities, began patrolling the hell-ridden city with the dragon Cordelia, rescuing citizens and sending them, anonymously, to a safe-house run by Connor, Nina, and Gwen Raiden.
His mission was complicated by the deaths of the Demon Lords who had taken control over areas of Los Angeles. Following their victory, Team Angel returned to their old base, the Hyperion Hotel,  where Angel resumed his patrols of the city. After killing a nest of vampires, Illyria revealed to the group that Angel was no longer a vampire, leaving Connor feeling angry and betrayed. When he asked Illyria to seek out the most powerful vampire in "Hell-A", Angel was horrified when she led him to Gunn. As she died, Angel was visited by the spirit of Cordelia to facilitate his passing, but Angel resigned himself to death after receiving a vision from the Senior Partners regarding his role in the Shanshu Prophecy; himself standing alone surrounded by corpses and destruction.
The distracted Illyria was then taken down by the Senior Partners' forces. Meanwhile, Connor was mortally wounded by Gunn and died in his father's arms. Realizing that the Senior Partners needed him alive for their plans, Angel provoked Gunn into beheading him with the flaming sword. As planned, the Senior Partners reset the timeline to the last point Angel was alive, the moment before Los Angeles was sent to Hell. This time, Angel rescued Gunn before he was sired and took him to a hospital, and tearfully reunited with a resurrected Connor.
At some point, Angel gained new abilities after a meeting with a shape-shifting higher power, including flight and invulnerability, which he quickly used to save a damaged airplane. Angel takes on the identity of Twilight and assembles an anti-Slayer organization to save the world. Though initially reluctant to deceive Buffy, Angel assumed the identity of "Twilight" and gathered a cabal of those most likely to oppose the Slayer army, consisting of several demons, members of the United States military such as General Voll , and Lieutenant Moulter , as well as Buffy's old enemies Warren Mears and Amy Madison , and her ex-boyfriend Agent Riley Finn, the latter of whom was acting as a double agent for Buffy, though "Twilight" was aware of this fact.
His supposed goal was to bring about the end of magic and eliminate all Slayers. However, his true goal was to keep the anti-Slayer forces distracted with his supposed "master plan," thus allowing him to coordinate the anti-Slayer movement and limit the potential damage that might result had these factions struck independently, while at the same time give Buffy a concrete threat to fight against, keeping her focused and ready for the challenges that lay ahead, while also guiding her into a position where she would somehow acquire powers similar to his.
As Twilight, Angel orchestrated the training of rogue Slayer Genevieve Savidge by the warlock Roden , which resulted in the deaths of both threats to Buffy, a mystical missile attack on the HQ of the Slayer Organization and full scale siege on the Tibetan monastery where lived Oz and his wife Bayarmaa. He took them to his headquarters, which was magically cloaked three seconds in the future, though Buffy tracked him down when the cloak was undone by Willow and Amy. Confronted by Buffy — now possessing strength, invulnerability, and flight like his own — Twilight chose to reveal his true identity to her.
Though initially enraged by this, Buffy, under the influence of a glowing aura, was moved when Angel explained his plan, and kissed him. The two give in to their passions after being apart for years and start engaging in an act of passionate airborne sex, subsequently finding themselves in a paradise dimension. Giles explains to the others that the current events tie in to a prophecy of a supernatural upheaval where the world shall be recreated after a Slayer changes the world, with Buffy and Angel having been selected to serve as the catalysts of that change.
Despite the prospects of eternal happiness with Angel in the new paradise dimension, Buffy chooses to return upon witnessing her friends and family fighting the resulting demonic hordes. Angel agrees to join her, only for the fight to be interrupted when Spike appears claiming to have the answer to the current crisis. However, given Angel's currently tense relationship with Spike, as well as the Scoobies' current hostility towards him, Buffy asked Angel to help protect the Slayers from the currently-attacking demons while she went with Spike to investigate his claims.
While in the midst of doing so, however, Angel encountered the same higher power who granted him his new powers, this time in the form of a winged lion. The power revealed itself to be the very dimension, itself called 'Twilight,' that Buffy and Angel chose to abandon, and insisted that Angel and Buffy finish what they started.
To this end, Twilight seemingly possessed Angel and sent him to the ruins of Sunnydale to stop the Scoobies and Spike. Although Buffy was able to keep Angel occupied long enough to destroy the Seed of Wonder, Angel killed Giles before he was returned to normal. Xander quickly jumped on him and started brutally attacking him, grabbing the slayer scythe as he was about to stake him.
‘Angels’ Take On Life-Changing Renovation Project For Colorado Family
However, Angel was spared when Buffy saved his life and prevented her friend from killing him. In London, Angel was confined to Giles' flat where he remained in a state of intense depression for a prolonged period of time. Faith cared for him and in an attempt to speed up his recovery, read him passages from Giles' old Watchers Diaries.
After he heard about a little girl who was playing host to a demon, he suddenly recuperated, donning his redemptive mindset once more. He accompanied Faith to the girl's residence, and as the demon was slaughtered he received a rush of Giles' memories detailing the day he'd fallen in love with Jenny Calendar. On the way back to their apartment, Angel told Faith that Giles' writings about the girl had "opened his eyes" and then sent her on her way, informing her that he could go home alone and wait for her, as she had other things to do.
Later, when Faith returned to the apartment after spending several hours in Brixton with her fellow Slayers, she openly questioned Angel about his time under the guise of the masked Twilight. She was particularly interested in knowing if he had murdered Giles in his own right mind, or if he had been taken over by Twilight's influence at the time. While he did not deny that he had been dominated by Twilight during the actual murder, he reminded Faith that he had been himself on many other occasions, and that he now had more blood on his hands than even Angelus.
He told her that he wanted to continue Giles' work where he'd left off, helping people in need, and also revealed the true reason why he had recovered so suddenly. He had decided to bring Giles back to life. One night, Angel saved Nadira 's life from a vampire, but fled in order to avoid being seen by Faith's Slayers most of whom wanted him dead for his actions as Twilight.

Faith found him, and asked him how he intended to resurrect someone who had died a natural death. He disclosed that he would work Giles' soul rather than his body; while Faith still seemed skeptical of his plan, she agreed to help him. He tracked down the blood at a demon auction, but just as they had managed to claim it, Angel's old associates Pearl and Nash suddenly attacked. The other demons at the auction ran for a chance to get it while Angel and Faith went to examine the basement of the establishment.
To their intense disappointment, they discovered in the new magic-less world, Mohra blood did not regenerate dead flesh with stability, but triggered perpetual regeneration until the victim was decapitated. Still determined, Angel began researching other methods of restoring corpses back at their apartment; when Faith came downstairs, he surprised her by speaking in a British accent and asking for tea.
Reliving Giles' memories, Angel chose to visit a cemetery where the Watcher had once witnessed the deaths of his friends at the hands of a Lorophage demon : an insect-like beast that fed on emotional trauma. While there, he followed the scent of blood to a seniors' home, where he came across a deranged young man slaughtering the residents. After taking care of the problem, he sparred with Faith on the roof of their building, and discussed the emergence of a new "it" vampire, known as Mother Superior, who ran a cult in a nearby church. Angel quickly brought up the possibility that the same Lorophage demon that had killed Giles' friends when he was younger was responsible for the bouts of psychosis blighting the city, as victims of Lorophage attacks oftentimes lost their sanity as a result of their trauma being brought to the surface too suddenly.
The two went to an old associate of Giles, Alasdair Coames , for help. Angel realized that a vampire might be controlling the Lorophage through hypnosis. They followed a lead to Mother Superior's church, only to find both the Lorophage demon and a completely sane Drusilla. Angel reminisced about the moment he'd first laid eyes on Drusilla over a century ago. Her purity had driven him to want to mold her into his "masterpiece. She had chosen to help people with her newfound clarity, but as Angel was aware, her efforts had gone in vain.
He attempted to kill the Lorophage to prevent further problems, but it easily fought him off. Drusilla then offered to remove his suffering. He refused, and along with Faith, left the church. He met Faith's father back at the apartment, and urged her to reconnect with him; he then went to the Easter End of London, to the old house where Drusilla had lived with her family as a human.
Drusilla was already there waiting for him, and once again begged him to let her take away his pain. He refused again, and then urgently apologized for what he had done to her as Angelus; however, she declared that she no longer cared. She was able to see that he had attached a magical item known as the Tooth of Ammut to his body, which he intended to use to draw the fragments of Giles' soul trapped in demons and other mystical sources into his body.
When he arrived at the apartment again, he and Faith confronted her father, who revealed that he had come to ask his Slayer daughter to kill a mobster for him. She turned him down, but when the man showed up looking for him, she and Angel were forced to fight him off; in a moment of rage she cut off the man's hand, and in remorse, fled the scene. Although they initially accepted Drusilla's gift, Angel convinced her to reject it with the justification that the loss of her pain would only deprive of her of the emotional strength she had gained through maturation.
Angel then forced the Lorophage to feed on itself, releasing the torment it had consumed from Drusilla, Faith and its other victims. Drusilla begged Angel not to force her to take back her pain, but as it returned to her body she once again lost all sense. Before running away, she gave Angel a teary and foreboding message, foretelling his dark future involving the three "voices" that would soon come to inhabit his body.
Having saved each other once more, Angel and Faith made an uneasy truce. Faith declared her appreciation to Angel for continuing to believe in her, and as they walked away together, they reflected about Drusilla's past as a saintly human. Faith proclaimed Drusilla to be a mess, and although Angel openly agreed with her, he made the closing statement: "But before she met me, she was beautiful. Back at the flat, they were surprised to find two young women: Giles' great aunts, Lavinia and Sophronia Fairweather , who had been powerful mystics before magic was removed from the world.
After dealing with the unfortunate effects of the aunts magical deals, Angel and Faith were suddenly visited by Willow Rosenberg. However, despite her misgivings, Willow decided to help Angel with his plans because she herself needed him, stating that she needed Connor to bring magic back to Earth; in order to regain her magic, she needed to travel to another dimension where magic still existed and 'soak up' the energy from there, but the only dimension that could still be accessed from this world was Quor'toth as there were never any portals to Quor'toth in the first place.
Having discovered a ritual that might allow her to access Quor'toth using the residual energy in the Scythe as a "battery", Willow needed something from the target dimension to access it in the first place, requiring Connor due to the time he had spent in that world. Angel was unsurprisingly furious with Willow for wanting to involve his son in her plans, at which point Willow snapped and blasted him for comparing her to him before breaking down in tears and insisting that the Earth was dying without magic and she needed to save it.
Seeing Willow's inner turmoil, Angel was more sympathetic and agreed to take her to Connor and talk to him, but made it clear to Willow that it was Connor's choice to go along with her plan. Making their way to Los Angeles, the group reunited with Gunn and Connor, the latter of whom unhesitatingly agreed to Willow's plan because he had seen what was happening and knew that Willow was right. Using the Scythe to carve symbols into Connor's body, Willow managed to open an entrance to Quor'toth in the Hyperion Hotel. Willow's plan proved successful. In Quor'toth, Connor served as a guide, while Willow reminded Angel about the possible consequences of being in another dimension.
They eventually came across dog-like demons who worshiped Connor; wanting to help them, Connor stayed behind. Willow tried to fight him off, but was at first overcome. Angel encouraged her by prompting her to reflect on how weak she had become without magic. As Willow regained her confidence, the magic began to corrupt her. In an attempt to calm her, Angel convinced Willow that she was strong enough to fight both the darkness and the demon. Still, she could not control herself, and transformed into "Dark Willow. As she rampaged, Angel concocted a plan.
Faith launched him into the sky, where he managed to sink his teeth into Willow's throat. His plan worked, and Willow returned to normal and fainted from fatigue. Angel struggled briefly with the urge to continue feeding on her; startled and frightened, he instructed that Faith kill him. She came close to doing so at his request, but was stopped by both Willow and Connor. In the wake of the battle, Angel and Willow managed to reconcile to a degree.
She revealed that although she hadn't yet forgiven him, she couldn't hate him either. Back in London, Angel met up with Whistler at a pizzeria on the anniversary of their first encounter in New York. Angel was furious with him when he realized that he was working with Pearl and Nash , and would have resorted to violence, had Whistler not broken his wrist and ordered him to sit down.
After the two reminisced about the day they had met, Whistler criticized Angel for abandoning their plan before its completion. Unphased by Whistler's accusations, Angel justified that his friends had been in danger, and that he had simply wanted to help. He inculpated Whistler for allowing so many people to die for his cause, and for manipulating both him and Buffy in the past.
Whistler did not deny this, but calmly revealed that Angel and Buffy's meeting had been predestined long ago. He also told Angel about his parents, a pureblood demon and an agent of the Powers That Be, who had been eliminated as a result of their forbidden relationship. Surprised by the revelation of Whistler's background, Angel became more sympathetic.
Whistler then told him that before the Seed of Wonder had been destroyed, he had experienced one final vision, relaying a horrid possible future. Whistler told Angel that he wanted his help to prevent it, warranting that having some people die would be better than allowing the world end. Angel admitted his appreciation to Whistler for giving him a purpose, and for allowing him to meet Buffy, but expressed that he wouldn't participate in anything that would sacrifice the lives of innocent people, despite Whistler's fixation on "balance.
Regardless, Whistler warned Angel that he would not be so lucky should their paths cross again. Angel and Faith then traveled to Peru to retrieve the Crown of Coils from a demons' lair. As they fought the demons, the creatures continuously regenerated; according to Angel, people had suspected this to be an ability of the demons themselves, but Angel realized afterward that they had been restored because of the Crown's influence.
He was proven right when he tested it on one of the demons' victims—the decomposed corpse became fresh once more, but because the body had no soul, it remained dead. Faith wondered aloud if the Crown would have the same effect as Mohra blood, but Angel had no answer. The two subsequently returned to London, where they put the Crown in Alasdair Coames ' care for the purpose of having it studied, and went to the cemetery where Giles' had been buried to exhume his remains.
Upon digging up his coffin, they were shocked to find his body missing; upon returning to their apartment, they realized that the body had been taken before it was ever buried, as the ground had been untouched. Nadira and her fellow Slayers arrived unexpectedly, carrying with them the body of a dead Slayer. She expressed to Angel that she was aware of his plan to bring Giles back to life, and ordered him to resurrect the young woman, Marianne , who had been murdered by his "child", Drusilla.
Angel refused, and told Nadira that resurrecting Giles was only possible because his life had been so deeply steeped in magic. Angry and stricken by grief, Nadira attacked Angel, and threatened him. She quickly left with her team when she received a text about a possible solution. Fed up with her problems with her Slayers, Faith lost patience and blamed Angel for her fellows' lack of trust in her. She made it clear that they were done working together after she finished helping him to bring Giles back.
Understanding the truth of her statements, Angel complied without complaint. Together, they went to the funeral home where Giles' body had been brought to piece together that had happened to it. The Fairweather sisters informed them that Ethan Rayne had been on the guest book for the funeral, much to Angel and Faith's confusion, because he had been killed by General Voll during the Twilight crisis.
Angel quickly surmised that Eyghon the Sleepwalker had possessed Ethan Rayne during the funeral, and had begun possessing Giles' body since. He also stated that the last fragment of Giles' soul rested within Eyghon. Soon afterward, Angel and Faith came across Nadira and her fellows fighting against zombified Slayers and Giles' body possessed by Eyghon. Angel and Faith immediately joined the battle. When Faith was hit by Eyghon, Angel fought against him, but was injured in the process.
Eyhgon then escaped through a broken window. At Alasdair's, Angel and Faith regrouped their forces. Angel admitted that he had known Eyghon was alive since his time as Twilight, and that the demon owned Giles' soul, which made his resurrection possible in theory.

Faith then shared the fact that Eyghon had made a deal with Whistler, Pearl and Nash to create a perfect zombified world without magic. Consequently, this plan tied heavily into the new world revolutionized by Whistler. Angel then decided that he would be the one to attack Eyghon, as he believed that he would be immune to the demon's ability of possession. Spike, who Angel had called earlier for assistance,  also appeared at Alasdair's residence. During their reunion, Angel and Spike bickered—as usual—about both each other and Buffy, much to Faith's exasperation.
Still, their vehemence was not as strong as it once had been, and they managed to focus on coming up with a strategy. They were interrupted by Eyghon, who had tracked them down at Alasdair's place. Spike and Angel worked together very effectively to defeat Eyghon, and almost succeeded in capturing him, but were hindered when Eyghon possessed Spike's body despite the fact that he already housed a demon.
Ehygon attempted to overtake Angel as well, but was met with resistance by the three beings already inhabiting Angel's body. In the midst of battle, Angel became erratic; Angel, Angelus and Giles in turn took over his body. When Giles briefly took control, he managed to decapitate Eyghon, which instantly killed him and ended his control over the dead—the final piece of Giles' soul was absorbed into the Tooth of Ammuk. In the wake of the fight, Angel continued to shift between the three presences, much to Spike and Faith's concern. Because Angel was the only individual with detailed knowledge about Giles' resurrection, they were forced into an unlikely partnership to come up with a new plan to restore Angel's sanity.
Observing this, Faith and Spike decided it was best to chain him to the wall in her basement. Together, they went to retrieve the Essuary , a magical item within which Giles' soul could be stored, from a den of soul-consuming demons called Enders. When they returned, Spike was ordered to watch over Angel in the basement while Faith and the others performed the ritual.
Spike ranted to a still deranged Angel about his own insecurities in regards to his relationship with Buffy. Angel regained consciousness at some point, but did not make it apparent until Spike admitted that he had always admired Angel for his ability to move on from Buffy. He spoke up, much to Spike's surprise, and sadly confessed that he hadn't moved on from her either. In gratitude for helping him, Angel gave Spike Harmony's phone number.
The following morning, he and Faith caught Spike exiting the bathroom shower with Harmony. He jokingly expressed that if he had set anyone up but Harmony, he would have felt sleazy, and then left to get breakfast with Faith. Angel prepared to set up Giles' resurrection with a special incantation he found, intending to use Alasdair's artifacts as well.
What to Read Next
Angel was puzzled at his outburst along with Faith, expressing a lack of awareness of Buffy even having a sister. As a frustrated Spike left the two being the only one who actually knew Buffy's connection to Dawn , Angel forced his attention to return to bringing Giles back. As planned, he went to Alasdair to borrow his magical items only to have the archmage refuse him. After turning out wrong in his judgement and the archmage's criticism of Angel's selfish motivations, he somehow won him over and was able to use the magical artifacts.
After a deep-to-heart with Faith, the plan was set in motion and the spell was chanted. However, complications arose due to appearances of Whistler, Pearl, and Nash, intending to steal Alasdair's collection. Wanting to buy time, Angel and Faith fought against their enemies fiercely. Eventually, the trio retreated when they got what they wanted. Sophronia, Lavina, and Alasdair successfully finished the incantation and Giles' body was struck with magical energy.
As the others were ordered to focus on their memories of Giles to make sure they pulled it off, Angel expressed his desperate need to fix what he did as he thought about when he had killed him. Successfully, Giles was brought back alive, albeit trapped in the body of his twelve-year old self.
Despite this setback and Giles' initial displeasure of being brought back by him under these circumstances, he was undeterred and insisted they would find a way to fix this as well. As Whistler began to distill magic into a ball, Angel immediately tried to stop him, only to be distracted when Nash fought against him instead. Eventually, Nadira arrived and while she was still in no way forgiving of Angel, she seemed to acknowledge that he was not the "true" bad guy, instead launching herself at Nash for her revenge.
Angel again attempted to reason to Whistler over the wrongness of killing so many innocent people, not feeling any desire to kill him. Once again, he did not listen and remained fixed in his belief that he was "saving" the world. Angel fought against Whistler, only for him to transform into a blue-horned demon with very strong melting abilities.
Nash had gained control of the plague ball, and prepared to drop it on the people below. Lavinia threw Angel another a sword, and he attempted to stop Nash, only for him to easily deflect it. Angel and everyone else immediately tried to catch it, but ultimately could not stop it in time. After ordering Faith to retrieve the pure magic orb, Angel resumed his face-off against Whistler.
He once again tried to talk him out of his obsession with releasing the plague across the world, the two conflicting heavily with their differing idealogies. Shoving him away, he managed to escape Angel and prepared to launch the magic plague across the world. Angel acted quickly and grabbed his wrist. Giving up trying to reason with Whistler, Angel challenged his benefactor to a duel, declaring that, since Whistler had always said that it was always the "big moments" that defined a person, now it was time to find out.
The two traded blows, each trying to seize control of the magic orb. Angel managed to get it and punctured it on one of Whistler's horns, trying to release the pressure to stop the explosion. Whistler somehow saved himself, but the act weakened him and reverted him back to his human form. Fans with bags will have their bags checked at the gates. All fans will be asked to remove cell phones, cameras, sunglass cases and other large metal objects from their pockets before walking through a metal detector.
If the device detects something, the guest will be checked with a hand-held wand, with further security follow-up, if needed. Does this mean it's going to take longer to enter the stadium? The Angels are making every effort to ensure this security enhancement doesn't slow down the process of getting into the game.

Segway users must operate their Segway at a speed no greater than, and yield to, pedestrian traffic, and must observe and obey all reasonable safety instructions from Stadium personnel. In the event an individual's use of the Segway creates an unsafe or hazardous condition, an individual Segway user violates these rules, or violates the Stadium rules outlined in the Angels' "A to Z Guide," the Angels reserve the right to take steps to mitigate the condition, including immediate ejection of the Segway user from the Stadium.
The Angels recommend that Segway users purchase tickets in one of the Stadium's accessible seating areas. Segway users may purchase tickets for up to 3 additional companion seats as outlined in the "Accessible Seating" for Guests with Disabilities section of the Angels' "A to Z Guide," including in the same seating locations as the wheelchair accessible seats.
