The thing is that someone has to get the shanshu in the end. The prophecy can't be avoided. It's going to manifest in one way or another, and it states that the vampire with a soul, after facing numerous battle... blah, blah, blah...will shanshu. So whatever that means - whether Wes was correct that it means becoming human, or there's a catch that has it turn out to be something else - it has to happen at some point to Angel (or Spike since he technically qualifies I guess - though that's less likely)The other possibility is that he gets the shanshu, but I can't see Joss giving him that. It's not the kind of story he tells. And I've always felt that Angel can't have an happy ending anyway.
Same! It would be pretty depressing. I just can't think of anything else she'd sacrifice.
