    I just watched the Pylea arc (trilogy?) again and it struck me at the end that The Gift must've taken place while they were still in Pylea. Can you imagine if Buffy had failed? Angel would think he was only gone for a short time and the entire world goes to Hell, he was supposed to be part of the apocalypse and he missed it (and thus his chance of becoming human), and would be very mopey (more so than usual) if he survived.

    Cordy would probably want to turn the car back around...though maybe she'd get a vision forewarning them, though I doubt it. The Powers seemed jerks that way and would probably just drop their toys when they were no longer entertaining or useful. Stupid Powers. :mad:

    Even worse...no tacos for Fred. :eek::( That would be one more thing for Angel to feel guilt over. :p

    If Buffy had failed, Angel would have known it, because all of the dimensional barriers would have been torn down and everything would have been thrown into chaos and destruction, including Pylea. It wouldn't have been just the world as Angel knew it going to hell, it would have been hell swallowing up the world in every dimensional variation and alternative. Tacos would have been the least of Fred's worries.

    I'd forgotten that explanation. I'll have to watch it again. I believe I get tripped up over the idea of parallel worlds since Glory (or someone else) would only have to succeed in one of them for it all to come down on every other world, and how would someone know that it would affect them all equally? Sounds like a theory at best. That it would tear down the barriers of one world could affect Pylea indirectly (maybe the "stars aligning" were why that beast came through to LA in the first place), but it didn't seem it could really break down the barriers to EVERY world. The very idea is like a quasar or black hole suddenly manifesting in Southern California...

    I'm not debating you here, I'm just saying that's how I'm looking back on it. I'm going to watch it again, where the explanation of the Key is. But first, this got me to thinking on something else, something about Dawn, and I'm gonna rewatch Superstar (with Jonathan) first...

    I cant remember this ever crossing my mind. The idea of Buffy failing.

    I kinda wonder, if Buffy's sacrifice didnt work, would Giles have pushed Dawn in the portal? I doubt Dawn would have the capability to have realised what was going on. And it would have been kinda funny.
