Doyle is forever the people’s princess! Alan and Jez react to this incredible ground-breaking episode, and reminisce on their favourite memories of Doyle!
Alan & Jez hold back the tears for the epic and powerfully sad “Hero”, the 9th episode in the first season of Angel!
Angel assists Doyle in trying to rescue a group of part-human Lister demons from The Scourge, an army of supremacist Nazi demons who claim “pure” blood and consequently persecute those of “mixed” blood. Angel discovers that the Scourge are using a knock-off arc of the covenant to blast anyone with human blood. In a climatic showdown, Doyle finally confesses both his half-demon heritage and his love to Cordelia, and proves that he, like Angel, is a hero in his own right!
