    Day 5 As I'm deliberately not counting Angel as an option, I think I'll go for Illyria. Her emotionally devoid behaviour towards everyone as they are reeling from Fred's death and trying to stop her is great. She's an interesting character and when she finds she is trapped in her 'shell' her exploration of human emotions and interactions is a fascinating response. She's just a great character. The only thing against her I think is that the most direct damage she did was in killing Fred and that was in great part executed by Knox, even if Illyria was the weapon.

    Holland Manners also came to mind, but I'm sticking with Illyria.

    Day 5: Does Illyria count? She was pretty spectacular. If not, I'd like to cheat and say the senior partners, just because they are pure evil and monster and created so much of the show's dark side.

    Day 3 - An episode that made you laugh/happy - Spin the Bottle was incredibly funny!

    Day 4 - An episode that makes you sad Hero! I remember crying so hard when Angel and Cordelia were watching the tape with Doyle.

    Day 5 - Best Monster Does Lilah count? She's my favorite evil in the series.

    How did I forget about Hero? Can I change my answer, or add to it?

    I really don't know how to answer the Best Monster one, since I don't know what "Monster" is supposed to mean. Is it the narrow or wider definition? Does Darla count? If so, then Darla.
    You keep waiting for the dust to settle and then you realize it; the dust is your life going on. If happy comes along - that weird unbearable delight that's actual happy - I think you have to grab it while you can. You take what you can get, 'cause it's here, and then...gone.

    Day 6 Worst Monster - the doctor from I Fall to Pieces Pointless, oddly funny, and disturbing. Di d anyone else wonder where his manly bits stayed?

    Day 6 Yes, I'll go with the guy in I Fall to Pieces. Creepy but also ridiculous.

    Day 6: Worst Monster of AtS


    Of the 'major' ones, Wesley in AtS S3. Angel can revert to Angelus. Wesley did a lot of research. Angel does kill Connor. Connor is the son of Angel and evil Darla. Holtz didn't want to kill Connor and Connor would certainly live a better life with Holtz than with Angel (when he'd mostly be a very vulnerable target for Angel's multitude of enemies).

    Angel tries to kill Wesley. Angel's eviler here than The Mayor is in "Graduation Day Part II" (B 3.22) when the Mayor tries to kill Buffy.

    Gunn and Fred side with Angel because Angel is their boss and source of their Angeleno lifestyles. They both actually like Wes more by this time yet stay more loyal to their income.

    Day 6: Worst Monster - Easy. The Beast. I don't care if any episodic monsters that I have forgotten about may have been cheesy, the Beast was just boring and stupid and the worst major villain. The stalker dude from I Fall to Pieces was much better - he was genuinely creepy, and he actually represented something from real life that is genuinely scary and that many women have to deal with. The Beast was just blah - what metaphor was that supposed to be? None. It's like something from a bad B horror movie.

    If AtS had been on HBO, he probably would have used his penis rather than his hands to sexually assault the woman while she was sleeping.

    Day 6: The I Fall to Pieces dude was definitely weird. If we're talking major monsters I'd say Holtz.
