They had a much better dynamic, and damn it but they were actually kinda cute together. Just meh. Joss was asked (by a fan in a cool Illyria costume) where Illyria and Wesley's relationship would have gone in season 6 of Angel. Raising Darla from the grave was the fiercest move Wolfram & Hart ever made against Angel. The romance between Angel and Darla was the most complex relationship to come out of the series. Let's look back at the romances that were central to Angel. Their origin and nature are a mystery.Jayunderscorezero 13:19, 13 July 2006 (UTC) Adjusting character box. As an aside. In an attempt to prevent Angel and his team from stopping Illyria, Gunn mortally wounds Connor. Part of the story centers on Connor and Gwen's romance, which ends when he discovers Gwen has betrayed the team. The Angel series this season was...lacking. Illyria should have been with Spike, not Angel. The art is fine even though no one resembles who they should. October 5, 2019 marks twenty years since the first episode of Joss Whedon's Angel, a spin-off from his acclaimed Buffy the Vampire Slayer in … The rest of Buffy's final season would have been quite different, plus I imagine they wouldn't have introduced Illyria on Angel, making its final season very different as well. Darla's history with Angel was extremely rich and their chemistry was an unstoppable force. Following the event, Gunn reverts Illyria to her demonic form, after which, Illyria decides to wholly collapse time and all existence. Faith was a better partner for Angel than Fred/Illyria and there was no point to this story as it seems like the threat they started time traveling for only existed because of the time travel, which yeah, time travel paradoxes and … As IDW Publishing's popular line of "Angel" comics begins to draw near its conclusion, one of the most popular supporting characters is receiving a long overdue moment in the spotlight with the miniseries "IIllyria: Haunted," written by Scott Tipton and Mariah Huehner and drawn by Elena Casagrande.. CBR News is pleased to present series co-writer Scott Tipton as he interviews … Angel and Illyria seemed rather pedestrian and boring. And Illyria continues to be a plot device, none of the depth that has made her interesting in the past here anymore; although, let's be honest, her character has been on a slow downward spiral ever since her appearance in Season 9 because no writer has been able to write her well. The "romance with Angel" angle was also incredibly unbelievable and should have been axed even sooner than it was. Because Angel should have been with Cordy and if she were still in the picture in that season then Angel and Illyria would have never happened. I've moved the lengthy rehearsal of Illyria's powers from the Character box to the main section. Also her eyes, I don't know if it's the contacts or not but they seem super open. Meh. Angel's nose is basically the main character here. I'm pretty sure this was on purpose for the character to … As far as I recall Illyria's power to talk to plants is only mentioned briefly on a couple of occassions, so the details remain largely unknown. Illyria doesn't blink, and if she does she doesn't do it often. Bringing her back to the present day was a smart decision. Aided by his ever-expanding rag-tag group of companions, Angel began to “help the helpless”. Although Buffy and Angel are a love story for the ages and the slayer did appear multiple times on the spinoff series, that romance really belongs on a Buffy the Vampire Slayer list.
