Lilah: Lawyer, Fashionista, and All Around Fierce Lady  
Lilah, from her first appearance in that cheesy demon fight club episode of season 1 of Angel to her corruption of Angel Investigations in the finale of season four, was always fun. Unrepentant and well heeled, she made a great baddie. She had such interesting relationships and rivalries with Angel, Lindsey, and Wesley. I always thought that it was a damn shame that they couldn't have gotten her to be in season five. It would have been interesting to see her interact with Spike and Harmony and then rest of the gang as a liaison.

What do you all think about her various arcs and development and possible future? I haven't really kept up with the comics, because I'm scared given the buzz, so I don't know if she shows up in season six. What do you think happened to her after "Home?"

I would have killed to have had Lilah instead of Eve in S5. I would also have killed to see a further exploration of her relationship with Wes. There was so much meat there.

Actually, there was no good reason she couldn't have stuck around. Her contract was still binding - she could totally have hung round W&H to torture the gang! As it is, we never got to see what kind of fun stuff she was working on after that scene in Home. Probably just continuing to serve the Senior Partners until the contract was up.

This comment sums up my thoughts, pretty much :)

LIlah is made of everything that is awesome. Fantastic character.

Well said.

I, too, wish Lilah had stuck around for Season 5. Eve was a poorly drawn Lilah-lite.

I hope Lilah's become CEO of W&H in another dimension and is still working tirelessly to get Angel and Wes into the fold. That seemed to be her mission in life. She was evil, but she was always entertaining.

She did get Angel to sign up as CEO so I hope she got some kind of evil reward like she is heading up the New York branch of W&H or something.

No, Lilah's not in the S6 comics :( The Angel ones are actually a bit better than the Buffy ones, at least the After the Fall ones. I can't speak for more recently, haven't read them yet.

Hmmm, good to know.

What they said, and Eve was not only annoying, but uninteresting -- beige for a baddy. What did Lindsey see in her?

Yeah, I liked her well enough, but she wasn't believable as a child of the Senior Partners. I always figured that Lindsey was using her.

Lilah was evily awesome and I loved her entire arc (well...I wish she hadn't gotten killed but other than that...)

In my own personal fanon, Eve never existed and Lilah acted as their liason in season 5. (But she still hooked up with Angel during Lorne's crazy spell and she was the woman Lindsey loved :D)

I always did wish that Lindsey and Lilah could have gotten together. She just would have been so much more believable as a liaison.
