TRIVIA NOTE: Allen
Francis Doyle (Glenn Quinn) was a psychic demon (half-demon on his mother's
side) who saw people in trouble before the fact. His visions aided Angel in
saving many innocent lives. Doyle sacrificed his life to destroy a deadly
machine constructed to harm other demons like himself. Before he died, he passed
his ability to see "visions of impending evil" onto Cordelia Chase (Charisma
Carpenter), a member of Angel Investigations (with whom Doyle had a crush).
Finally, one demon to lookout for is Sahjhan (Jack Conley), a tall, ugly and
evil time-traveling demon who is bent on killing Angel. He has unsuccessfully
enlisted the aid of an 18th century vampire hunter, Daniel Holtz (Keith
Szarabajka) and Lilah Morgan (Stephanie Romanov), a top lawyer with the demonic
law firm of Wolfram and Hart.
