Major Spoiler Alert:
Angel and Collins is the second couple from Rent that I talked about on this series. The first one was about my favorite couple in the show, Roger and Mimi. But Collins and Angel are also an incredible couple. This couple is so controversial in a way. Collins and Angel after all is a gay couple. Just like Mimi and Roger, Collins and Angel both have HIV. Collins and Angel knowing they are going to die from HIV, they make the most of their situation. Their main song, “I’ll Cover You”, expresses their love so strongly and shows that they are making the most of their situation. Angel and Collins teach the rest of the group how to live in the moment and to love. Then when Angel was dying, Collins took care of Angel and that scene really does show how much those two love each other.
