Does the Shanshu Prophecy play a role in the Comics?

    When Angel signed off his Shanshu Prophecy in Season 5 finale, was he able to get it back after defeating The Senior Partners in Season 6?

    It has been a little while since I've read "After the Fall", so I'm a little hazy on the specific details, but yes, the Shanshu Prophecy plays a role. It's kind of abstract, if I recall correctly, but I remember really liking how it was done.

    As far as I can tell, the Shanshu is still very much a part of Angel's story.

    I can't really remember either, but wasn't it something like the document Angel signed wasn't filed before LA went to hell, so he never actually signed it away?

    (I could be completely wrong, I'm also hazy on it, lol)
     
    Robb Stark: Right. I'm pretty sure this is it.
    janas: Is right! Furthermore Wesley in ATF says that the vampire with a soul mentioned in the Shanshu Prophecy is Angel.

    Watch how he signs the Shanshu Prophecy - he doesn't sign "Angel", he signs "Anger". One letter different, eternal difference in outcome because he still hasn't agreed legally to exclude himself from the Shanshu Prophecy. Even if no one filed the agreement, it still exists and could be filed at any time - if they could get past the fact that it is not his name on the document.

    Would the end of magic as or the end of Season 8 have cancelled it? Of course, once magic is restored, the prophecy would come back into effect, unless it's like losing an unsaved program when your computer crashes. If that were the case, it woud have to be recast, or re-prophesied, or whatever.

    Course, that's assuming that a prophesy has the same properties as a spell.

    A prophecy doesn't have the same properties as a spell, but its realization is definitely. To become a human involves the use of magic, so now I do not think can realize the Shanshu prophecy. Also the Mohra demon's blood, without magic, you can not use because it is carcinogenic.
