One of the best episodes on the show. Also one of the saddest.
It\'s a shame they couldn\'t be together. The whole reason Angel turned back the day was to prevent Buffy from dying. That happened a little over a year later anyway. If you think about it Xander didn\'t have any special abilities and Buffy manages to save his butt as well as hers time and time again. Angel would have just needed to work out and bulk up a bit and he would have been fine. It was just a lame excuse so that Joss could keep them apart.
