The following happens after Seasons 1-5 and After the Fall (Which counts as Season Six to me).
Runs parallel with Buffy Season Eight, in which Spike and Illyria cross-over (See Buffy page).
David Boreanaz as Angel (Ep. 1-9, 13-17)
Vincent Karthieser as Connor
Amy Acker as Illyria
James Marsters as Spike
1: Forgiveness (Special Guest Star: Andy Hallett. Guest Star: J. August Richards) – Angel, Spike, and Connor visit Gunn, who is still being guarded by Illyria, at the hospital in Silverlake which Lorne is overseeing. Connor and Spike are unwilling to forgive Gunn for everything he did during The Fall (Torturing Betta George, killing Connor, and "Being a bloody bastard"). Angel defends him by pointing out that regular Gunn and vampire Gunn were basically the same as Angel and Angelus, and that Gunn therefore was not himself as a vampire. Afterwards, they return to the Hyperion and officially re-open Angel Investigations again.
2: Spike vs. Dracula (Special Guest Star: Andy Hallett. Guest Stars: Rudolph Martin, and J. August Richards) – After learning about the events of The Fall, Dracula decides to re-sire Gunn, but instead ends up fighting Illyria. Lorne calls Angel and asks for help. When he, Spike, and Connor arrive, Dracula recognizes Spike from before and is incredulous to learn that he has a soul now and is in love with Buffy. Spike asks Dracula for the eleven pounds that he owes him, which he refuses. After seeing him beaten to a pulp by Angel, Connor, and Illyria, however, Spike admits that this was almost as good. Embarrassed and defeated, Dracula retreats, swearing bloody vengeance upon them all (Spike merely rolls his eyes and says that he gives that threat to everyone and never goes through with it).
3: Guardian (Guest Star: J. August Richards) – While Angel and Connor handle client telephone calls and paperwork at the Hyperion, Spike visits Illyria at the hospital and asks her to return to A.I. She stubbornly tells him she will not leave Gunn unguarded. Spike reminds her that Lorne has hired extra protection for him now, since most of the demons in LA want him dead after what had happened during The Fall. Eventually, she becomes convinced and accompanies Spike back to the Hyperion.
4: Emotionally Damaged – As Illyria settles herself in at A.I., she and Spike discuss her conflicting emotions about Wesley, Fred, and Gunn, while Angel and Connor spend some father/son bonding time.
5: Blood Brothers – Angel and Spike compete against each other to prove who is better than the other. When their rivalry endangers Connor and one of their client's lives, they come to their senses and work together to help them, realizing that they have much more in common with each other than they thought.
6: Justice – Angel and Illyria are targeted by mob of people for two different reasons: They want to worship Angel for saving them, but kill Illyria who they remembered almost destroyed L.A. After she ends up saving their lives from a group of demons, they call off the hunt for Illyria and start to worship her too, causing her, Angel, Connor, and Spike to barricade themselves inside the Hyperion until they left.
7: Prom Night (Guest Star: Brad Kane) – Tucker Wells is released from the Los Angeles Rehabilitation Center he had been sent to seven years ago, boasting that he will finally get his revenge on Buffy, only to run into Angel, who informs him that she has moved out of state. After being driven out of L.A., Tucker hops a freighter, determined to track down Buffy.
8: Homeless – After hearing strange stories about a new homeless shelter, Connor goes undercover and discovers that the inhabitants are being controlled by a demon who feeds on negative emotions. Since he is not affected by the negative emotions (He starts to be once he faces it, because the longer you are in the shelter, the more you are affected) he overcomes the demon and kills it, freeing the other people.
9: Missing, Part 1 (Guest Star: Glenn Quinn) – Angel, Connor, Illyria, and Spike trail a mysterious demon who has teleportation abilities similar to Illyria's old powers. In the middle of fighting it, Angel vanishes (the demon seemed to have transported him somewhere) and Doyle appears in his place.
10: Missing, Part 2 (Guest Star: Glenn Quinn) – The demon timeslips away somewhere else. Doyle looks around in confusion and sees Spike. He demands to know what Spike had done to him. Spike states that he wasn't responsible and that Connor and Illyria can back him up. Doyle asks Spike why he's suddenly acting like a good guy and who Connor and Illyria are, wondering out loud if he got sent to hell for some reason. Spike explains Connor and Illyria's origins and about his soul. Doyle isn't sure whether Spike having a soul or Angel having a son is more surprising to him. When he figures that he has been returned to life in the real world, he asks if he can talk to Angel. Spike tells him that Angel had disappeared seconds before he had appeared.
11: Missing, Part 3 (Guest Stars: Glenn Quinn, and Keith Szarabajka) – Having gotten a desperate call from Andrew, Spike and Illyria decide to go to Cleveland to help him, while Doyle and Connor track down the demon. After listening to Connor recount about his time in Quor-Toth with Holtz, Doyle asks Connor about Cordelia. Connor reluctantly tells him that she had died. Doyle stares ahead in shock. Connor gives him a few seconds to grieve, then tells him that he had loved her too and understands how he feels. They spend some time reminiscing on happy memories about her.
12: Missing, Part 4 (Special Guest Star: Andy Hallett. Guest Star: Glenn Quinn) – Doyle and Connor finally find the demon outside the hospital where Lorne and several mystics were trying to hold it off. Spike and Illyria return and join in. Eventually, Illyria punches through the demon and kills it. Then, after discovering she has somehow absorbed its powers, she timeslips to find Angel.
13: Recovery (Special Guest Star: Andy Hallett. Guest Stars: Glenn Quinn, and Adam Baldwin) – Illyria finds Angel in what turns out to be Wolfram and Hart's home dimension, inhabited by The Senior Partners, engaged with Marcus Hamilton. Hamilton explains that the demon had belonged to them and they wanted Angel brought here for judgment, but Illyria timeslips out with Angel back to the others. Upon arrival, Lorne tells Angel that he is done fighting now that he has returned safely, but will continue to watch Gunn. Angel and Doyle reunite. After Angel explains where he was, Doyle mumbles that he has some explaining to do.
14: The Plan (Guest Stars: Glenn Quinn, and Adam Baldwin) - Doyle explains that he was sent down in corporeal form by The Powers to help Angel banish Wolfram and Hart, but isn't sure how or why. Also, all the beings in Wolfram and Hart's dimension are in undead contract form and he hints that more help may come for them later, but won't elaborate. Angel then fills Doyle in on everything that had happened for the past six years since he had died. In The Senior Partner's dimension, Hamilton tells The Partners (Represented by colored balls of light) about Angel's escape and Doyle's return. They reassure Hamilton that one measly messenger for The Powers being brought back will not be any trouble for them at all.
15: Wolfram and Hart (Guest Stars: Glenn Quinn, Sam Anderson, and Adam Baldwin) – Angel asks Doyle how they can destroy The Senior Partners. Doyle says they can't (because they are a balancing force of evil in the world, and if they are wiped out, there will be a major power shift that could end up destroying the world anyway), but they can be stabilized so that they can exist while not causing any more evil. Leaving Spike and Connor to keep a watch on L.A., Illyria transports herself, Angel, and Doyle to the dimension, where Hamilton and Holland Manners present them to The Partners.
16: Senior Problem (Guest Stars: Glenn Quinn, Sam Anderson, and Adam Baldwin) – While Connor and Spike handle L.A., Angel finally meets The Senior Partners face to face. They tell Angel that they realize he will not cooperate with their scheduled apocalypses and therefore has to die. An army of undead lawyers, led by Hamilton and Holland, approach them.
17: Angels (Special Guest Stars: Charisma Carpenter, Christian Kane, Andy Hallett, Max Perlich, and Alexis Denisof. Guest Stars: Glenn Quinn, Sam Anderson, with J. August Richards, and Adam Baldwin) – Before the lawyers can attack, Cordelia, Wesley, and Lindsey appear. Angel is emotionally glad to see Cordy and Wes, but taken aback to see Lindsey. Lindsey is pissed that Angel had him assassinated, but had agreed to return because he is still determined to kick The Senior Partner's asses, even if that meant working with him again. Doyle reunites with Cordy and finally meets Wesley. Wesley explains that The Powers had decided to send Angel the best help he could receive for this particular mission, believing that himself, Doyle, Cordy, and Lindsey could change the tide of the battle with Wolfram and Hart. After getting the situation straightened out, they counter-attack the lawyers. But the lawyers keep coming in endless supplies. Cordy tells Angel that they can't beat W&H by wiping out their forces (Which are endless) and that there was a specific reason why The Powers allowed them to return: so they could die again to banish Wolfram and Hart for good. Since there were four of them and the plan only required three, Lindsey asks Angel to do him one favor and kill him personally (He had also returned because he wanted a better death than being shot by one of Angel's 'flunkies'). Angel, understanding, raises his sword and says "I hate you." to which Lindsey responds "I hate you too." then gets stabbed and killed by his arch-nemesis. After watching this scene with incredulity, Doyle, Cordy, and Wesley say goodbye to Angel for the last time, then (Doyle holding Cordy's hand) merge with the balls, one per Senior Partner, and the dimension implodes. Illyria timeslips herself and Angel back to L.A. Later, Angel receives a visit from Whistler, who congratulates him on his success. Angel asks him if his life's mission is over now. Whistler chuckles and says "Yeah right. You've still got some redemption left ahead of you to fulfill." After that cryptic visit, Angel and Spike visit Gunn. He tells Spike that he is glad Doyle died a hero again and that he got to see him, Wesley, and Cordelia one more time. Spike asks if Wolfram and Hart is really gone. Angel nods, wondering what Whistler's final statement really meant for him.
