That would be like, down the line, an Arrow reunion and Flash getting a cover. Did Flash appear in Arrow? Yes. Did he get a successful spin off? Yes. But he’s still not the lead of Arrow. David being the lead of Angel means nothing. Angel didn’t go seven seasons. Angel didn’t impact tv and pop culture. It was a fun show, but, honestly, in the long run, won’t have affect in pop culture like Buffy. And more importantly… ANGEL IS NOT THE LEAD OF BUFFY!
Buffy is a feminist show about love, yes, but more importantly, coming of age, found families, friendship, FEMALE FRIENDSHIP, lgtb, heart break, depression. Angel was in three seasons. And of course those will be the most popular seasons. 99% of tv is most popular in early seasons, that’s just how tv works.
And the end of the day, this should have been about BUFFY SUMMERS, a kick a** woman who overcame so much and is arguably the most popular fictional television female character. The cover should have been about HER. Not either love interest, and especially not a male love interest ALONE. Rant over.
