I found this on alt.showbiz.gossip NY POST May 30, 2003 -- C - the sultry brunette on "Angel" who plays his love interest Cordelia - has been dropped from the popular vampire saga. Cordelia was left in a coma when the show ended its fourth season this year. "The Angel/Cordelia [love story] had gone pretty much as far as we wanted to take it," the show's creator, Joss Whedon told TV Guide Online. "Their romance was definitely not a popular move on our part."- Don Kaplan -- nimue "There are things I will not tolerate: students loitering on campus after school, horrible murders with hearts being removed... and also smoking." Principal Snyder

Having just bought the S1 DVD and being reminded of how Cordy *freaked* at the barest suggestion of any woman giving Angel a happy (in like every episode that whole year), it makes absolutely no sense that she would ever even consider the idea. I don't think it was unpopular because people didn't like the idea of the two of them together. But the idea of him pursuing *any romance at all* undermined the original reason he left Sunnydale. And the idea of Cordy entertaining the idea for a nanosecond undermined her character. -- rob m at rob myers dot net

Didn't work for me and I shed no tears that it has come to an end. That said, I don't think you can really compare the Cordy of Season 1 of "Buffy" to the Cordy we saw in her later seasons on "Angel." The character had evolved and changed quite a bit and in the course of that evolution and her friendship with Angel, it's certainly possible for her to see him in a much different light than when he first arrived on the scene on "Buffy." > > > >I don't think it was unpopular because people didn't like the idea of >the two of them together.

Boreanaz and Gellar had it big-time. They worked together as a romantic couple. But Angel and Cordy never felt real because the actors being paired simply didn't generate anything beyond friendship.

Cordy isn't the same character she was at that point and the relationship between Angel and Cordy evolved into something quite different than when they knew each other in Sunnydale or met up with each other again in L.A.

Yes, but there's still no reason to believe that her sense of self-preservation disappeared in the interval.
