Parallels between the last episode of Buffy and Angel.
I always felt like it was a beautiful way to show how their love changed them , and their destiny. It impacted their life forever even if they were apart. Angel was about to kill himself , thinking he was brave by giving up but Buffy teached him that strong means fighting and to never give up. She gave him a purpose , a goal , a meaning to his life. The show ends with Angel still fighting even when the world is against him. Angel sacrificied his love her , the only woman he ever loved for two centuries , the woman that made him feel human again because he wanted her to have a normal life , to shine and that’s how the show , after 7 seasons , ends. Angel gave her the necklace ( that also saved the world ), ending their meeting with the famous "I ain’t getting older" in response to Buffy’s thoughts that they may end up together , if she is done baking ;).
