Buffy season eight Big Bad revealed

Buffy the Vampire SlayerFor those not keeping track, the Buffy the Vampire Slayer franchise has continued to a season eight in the comic books. In her latest escapades, Buffy (with her Slayer army) has been fighting a masked villain named Twilight who apparently is familiar with Buffy.

In an interview, Dark Horse editor Scott Alie revealed the secret identity of Twilight. Spoiler is after the jump ...

Twilight is Angel. This story has been coordinated with IDW publishing for the Angel Season 6 comics so that the two series do not contradict.

This sort of twist is very much like Joss. In fact, since he's done this sort of thing with the character of Angel before (Buffy season two), nobody is expecting it. I'm sure there will be a very good explanation for Twilight's extra powers.

Of course, all this could be Scott Alie having fun with the fans. We won't know the full truth until issue 34 of the series hits the shops in March. Assuming it's true, what are your thoughts on this reveal?

The comic got too weird. I had trouble figuring out who was who, and they introduced a lot of characters, and I think I missed one and I just lost the plot. Bummer, too, after reading this. It's hard to catch up on comics from Wikipedia though, and I don't see myself buying all the back issues...I hope this does actually make some sense. I figured it would be Riley.

yes its a crying shame that one can easily visit a site such as the one hidden in the pirates bay and search for buffy season 8.
Also the makers of the free, small but excellent software Utorrent should be punished for making it too easy.
