That's my point though. The danger isn't Angelus himself, it's Buffy's inability to put the safety of others above her own emotions. Angelus isn't any more of a threat than future of previous villains, he's supernatural equivalent of an asshole ex-boyfriend. Most of his kills are off screen extras we have no connection to and even Jenny only died because Angelus found out she was trying to restore his soul.True, but then I think that's part of what makes that plot in Buffy so compelling that she is at such a fragile place emotionally (and because of her age), that she struggles with the idea of killing the Monster who is also the man she loves.
