"Tomorrow" is the twenty-second episode and season finale of the third season of Angel and the sixty-sixth episode in the series. Written and directed by David Greenwalt, it was originally broadcast on May 20, 2002, on The WB network.


The joyful reunion between Angel and his now teenage son Connor is short-lived when the enraged Connor comes seeking revenge against Angel for murder. Meanwhile, just at the moment when Cordelia and Angel are finally ready to face their feelings for each other, she is sent a message from the Powers That Be concerning her future.[1]


Angel is happy in his newfound relationship with his son, but Connor is secretly waiting for revenge, believing Angel killed Holtz — just as Holtz had planned as his final revenge on Angel. The pair fight off an armed hit group sent by Linwood and Gavin from Wolfram & Hart to abduct Connor.

Meanwhile, Lilah continues to try to recruit Wesley by manipulation and seduction, and she shows him that he is now very much like her: a human losing their soul. Although Wesley denies he is like her, the two end up having sex.

Before leaving town for a new job in Las Vegas, Lorne confides in Angel that Cordelia really loves him. The Groosalugg leaves too, after confronting Cordelia about her feelings for Angel. With the Groosalugg gone, Cordelia and Angel agree to meet.

In their way to confess their feelings for the other, Cordelia is confronted by Skip, who tells her that, as a higher being, it's now time for her to leave the Earth plane of existence and move on to another. As she ascends, Angel is waylaid by a vengeful Connor and Justine, who seal him in a metal coffin and throw it off a boat to sink down to the ocean floor.


  • Lilah wonders what it felt like when Justine cut Wesley's throat. In "Calvary," Jasmine will stab Lilah in the neck.
  • Angel suggests that Cordelia helps him "fill in the blanks" when eventually telling Connor about sex. In "Apocalypse, Nowish," Cordelia, possessed by Jasmine, will have sex with Connor.
  • Angel finally accepts his love for Cordelia, who has dyed her hair blonde. In "Carpe Noctem," Cordelia remarked it was likely of him being with blondes but not with brunettes.
  • This episode marks the last time Angel Investigations interacts with Cordelia as herself until years later, in "You're Welcome." She'll return in "Slouching Toward Bethlehem" with amnesia, will be possessed by Jasmine in "Spin the Bottle," and will fall into a coma in "Inside Out."
