AngelAngel Returns to Sunnydale

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) - The final episodes of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" will be lousy with ensouled vampires.
UPN on Tuesday (April 1) confirmed the widely held notion that the original vamp-with-a-soul, Angel (David Boreanaz), will play a part in "Buffy’s" final story arc. The final five episodes begin airing Tuesday, April 15, leading up to the series finale on May 20 (no original episode is scheduled for April 22).
The network and the show’s producers are keeping details about Boreanaz’s appearance under wraps. It’s saying only that Angel will join Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), fellow slayer Faith (Eliza Dushku) and the rest of the Sunnydale crew — including recently soulful vamp Spike (James Marsters) — in "a final, no-holds-barred battle to the death that will decide whether good or evil will prevail."
It’s also unclear at the moment how — or if — the pending apocalypse in Sunnydale is related to the cataclysmic events taking place in Los Angeles on "Angel," The WB’s spinoff of "Buffy."
