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

What Fun!
8 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked this episode a lot. It's very Lindsey focused. You know, I really wanted to hate Lindsey. After he went back to Wolfram and Heart and deservedly lost his hand by bringing back Darla, he did so many things wrong I just wanted to hate him. But somehow, I always had a soft spot for him. He always seems so passionate, like despite his best efforts, he's always going to follow his heart. And yeah, sometimes his heart leads him to do evil, terrible things. But I think there's someone good deep down in there.

This episode also really reminded me of what Lindsey lost when Angel took his hand. It's never seemed that big a deal before, but now we learn he used to love to sing and play guitar, and he didn't get to do that anymore. He had to adapt and stumble through this harsh, competitive life, without his dominant hand. I think able-bodied people like me need that reminder sometimes. But it also makes it more beautiful when he does get to play and sing again. It's like he's finally connected back to his soul, and it's nice to see.

I like seeing Lindsey try to work with Angel. This is the second episode when that's happened, and it's just so much fun both times.

This episode also deals with the toll the visions are taking on Cordy. This worries me. None of the guys know how to deal with it. Cordy doesn't really know how to deal with it. I'm not sure what kind of path this will send her on. Poor Cordy.

There are two parts of this episode that I particularly like. The first is when Angel is trying so hard to cheer up Cordelia, he brings her a bunch of food. She tells him she loves him, and he just has this most wonderful smile that nearly made me tear up. It's really perfect - it's just full of his soul, so happy and worried and sweet and adorable. It's a quick but really beautiful moment.

But what really takes the cake and makes this a fun, wonderful episode, is when Lindsey quits Wolfram and Heart. He goes on this whole "evil hand" speech, and I love it. It's so funny and so Lindsey and just a really enjoyable scene.
