Storyline

With a reevaluation upcoming for his department, Lindsey is referred to a clinic where he is able to receive a donor hand. Lindsey is shocked to discover that his hand has a mind of its own, jotting nefarious notes on its own accord. Meanwhile, the Angel Investigations crew follows up on a vision Cordelia has in which a man, who recently received a transplant eye from the same clinic, stabs himself. Lindsey and Angel's paths cross as they realize they are investigating the same matter. They discover the clinic is using donor body parts from a cache of unwilling subjects which was orchestrated by Wolfram & Hart. After the discovery, Lindsey decides to leave the firm leaving his promotion to Lilah. Written by Patrick "Puck" Gurney

Gross!

DEAD END

The Good; Well if you like gross horror concepts this one's for you! A very nice end to the Lindsey story arc (for now) and some good humour about corporations and how they work. Very clever scene where we see around Lindsey's apartment with all the little features showing his life with 1 hand.

The Bad; When Lindsey shoots up the boardroom where the heck are WR+H's crack security team who always seem to turn up on every other occasion?

Best line: Lindsey "Stop it evil hand!"

Jeez, how did they get away with that? Eye stabbing anyone? Or living organ donors? Plus Angel garroting the parole officer.

Apocalypses: 5

Angel Clichés Damsel in distress; 18

In disguise; 8

DB get's his shirt off; 12

Cordy's tattoo; Her green top shows it to great advantage so 6

Cheap Angel; 6

Fang Gang in bondage: Cordy: 5 Angel: 9 Wes: 4 Gunn; 1

Fang gang knocked out: Cordy: 10 Angel: 12 Wes: 5 Doyle; 1 Gunn; 1

Kills: Cordy: 5 vamps, 1 demons Angel; 26 vamps, 32 and 1/2 demons, 3 humans Doyle; 1 vamp Wes; 2 demon Kate; 3 vamps Faith; 16 vamps, 6 demons, 3 humans. Gunn; 7 vamps+ 2 demons.

Fang Gang go evil: Cordy: 2 Angel: 2

Characters killed: Lindsey's donor 36

Recurring characters killed; 5;

Total number of Angel Investigations: 4, Angel, Cordy, Wes and Gunn

Packing heat; Wes; 3 Doyle; 1 Angel; 1

Notches on Fang Gang bedpost: Cordy: 2 ?+Wilson/Hacksaw Beast Angel: 1;Buffy Wes; 2; Virginia and the bleached blonde

Kinky dinky: Of course this being LA even the organ donors are insanely pretty. Lindsey pinches Lilah on the way out, well you would, wouldn't you?

Captain Subtext; Angel seems to yearn for the parole officers 'butterfat'? (Yuck!)

Know the face, different character; 2

Parking garages; 5,

Buffy characters on Angel; 16 Wetherby, Collins and Smith. Angel, Cordy, Oz, Spike, Buffy, Wes, Faith, Darla, Dru, Master, Anne, Harmony, Willow

Questions and observations; Once again Wes and Angel subtly compete for leadership. Love Wes delegating Angel to help Cordy. Lilah suffers a death of the thousand cuts, constantly humiliated by Lindsey, treated as a secretary by Lindsey's client. No offence to Christian Kane but I really don't think he's that good as a singer. Kate is sorely missed by AI who now have to pay an outside contractor. Poor Cordy, the visions really starting to take their toll. Interestingly Angel warns Lindsey to never come back and Lindsey warns Angel never to play WR&H's game. NEITHER listens to each other's advice.

Marks out of 10; 8/10 great stuff and the last we'll see off Lindsey for 3 whole seasons
