I am – Hercules!!

We all figured he’d be too busy prepping his first feature, but I guess we figured wrong.

Jeffrey Bell was going to write and direct the “Angel” finale by himself, but now Buffiverse mastermind Joss Whedon’s name has joined Bell’s on the teleplay credit.

News of Whedon’s more hands-on participation comes from the always-reliable Pandora at, which also reveals who’ll be appearing in the last four episodes:

5.19 “Time Bomb,” written by Ben Edlund (“Life of the Party,” “Smile Time”).
* Harmony, the Mercedes McNab character introduced in “Buffy” 1.2.
* Hamilton, the Adam Baldwin character to be introduced Wednesday.

5.20 “The Girl In Question,” written by Steve DeKnight (“Shells”) & Drew Goddard (“1943”) and directed by “Angel” co-creator David Greenwalt (!).
* Harmony
* Darla, the Julie Benz character introduced in “Buffy” 1.1.
* Drusilla, the Juliet Landau character introduced in “Buffy” 2.3.
