Mrs. Sgt. Tanuki points out that the very last scene of the E.R. series finale last night - everybody lined up in the street to charge into battle against an insurmountable foe one more time - was just like the series finale of Angel. She's right. In both shows, the nature of the fight the protagonists are engaged in means they can't ever really win. The producers can't end with a victory, then, just an indication that our heroes are always going to be fighting the good fight.
