Arc Advancement

  • 3x16 - Sleep Tight: When Wesley attempted to escape with Angel's child, he was tricked into coming close to Justine, who slit his throat, stole the baby and left him for dead.

Allusions and References

  • Peter Pan: In James Matthew Barrie's novel and stage play, Peter Pan, the title character was a young boy who refused to grow up, so he lived in a fantasy world where he could stay young forever.
Gunn: Angel, if Peter Pan here doesn't stop...
  • Dante's Inferno: The first of three novels in the Divine Comedy series by Dante Alighieri, Dante's Inferno tells the story of a man giving a first person account of his tours through the lands of the dead (namely Hell, Purgatory and Heaven). In the 9th circle of Hell, Dante finds Satan, frozen from the waist down with three men in his jaws; Brutus, Cassius and Judas. The first two were the men who plotted to kill Julius Caesar and the last was the man who sold out Jesus Christ to the Romans.
Wesley: Dante's Divine Comedy.

Memorable Moments


  • Angel: There's no need for violence.
    Tyke: I'm sorry. Did you say "no need for violence?" You may wanna speak up, you see (points at his bandaged ear and screams) I don't hear so good any more!
