Vampire with a soul

“And in the end, we were all just humans, drunk on the idea that love, only love, could heal our brokenness.”
— Christopher Poindexter

Angel was the necessary spin-off from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to continue the storyline in the original series and give the character of Angel a new lease. It was a great series with deep plots and great characterization that created vivid, relatable characters. Some of the episodes were truly breathtaking.

There is a lot about Angel that I can relate to and even respect. He is dark, brooding, and puts others and the cause before himself. But it is beyond me how he could ever let go of Buffy. Every relationship has obstacles to overcome and after over two hundred years Angel should really know that by now.

When he became human he asked to be turned back to a vampire to help in the fight against evil. Evil cannot be defeated. It is part of the spectrum of life. Unlike Angel, I would not have given up the opportunity to create something meaningful with Buffy. Let the world burn. Love is more important.
