The Battle of the Alley was the intended "last stand" of Team Angel after they rebelled against the Senior Partners and slew the Circle of the Black Thorn.


After they successfully slew every member of the Black Thorn, as well as Marcus Hamilton, the four surviving members of Team Angel (Angel, Spike, Charles Gunn, and Illyria) proceeded to gather in the alleyway north of the Hyperion Hotel, where they were quickly assailed by a massive army of demons sent by Wolfram & Hart. Expecting to die right there, Angel and his friends resolved to simply fight to the finish and go out in a blaze of glory.

However, the army was just a precursor to their true plans: in the midst of the battle, Gunn was captured and turned into a vampire, and the Senior Partners transported all of L.A. to a hell dimension and turned Angel into a human to hinder him.
