At first when you said you were worried about there future, I thought you were referring to the characters. I'm glad that when I read on I saw you were talking about the shows themselves. I know that with shows that have this good of character development sometimes the line between fantasy and reality get blurred.
Anyway...yeah, it seems like Angel has been lighter, especially the ending last night. I wonder if they're making it lighter, because Buffy's been so dark here lately? I dunno, I like the way they keep continuity, but I hope that Angel kind of becomes it own show. Themewise anyway. There are many nights that I enjoy Angel more than Buffy and I think that's because of the mature theme.
About Lorn, yeah, It will be interesting to see what loose ends it is that he needs to tie up in his own dimension. You know, that his psychic friend was telling him about.
Also I heard somewhere that Angel will have a new castmember next year. I'm thinking Lorn, Lindsey, or the Fred girl that got sucked into that dimension. What do you think?
Buffy was pretty cool last night. Willow's turning into quite the threat. Those clerics couldn't break her forcefield, even though they had obviously been training their whole life.
And, um, Hello Ben, why didn't you get out as soon as you had stabilized Giles. remember, you're Glory's vessel. Duh!

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." -Bene Gesserit litany against fear
