Two for the Price of One

This is a very good episode. The principle character, a young photographer, has lived her life on the edge, so when her car is disabled and she gets out to look, a man with a lead pipe mugs her. When she refuses and runs, he hits her from behind. She is brought to the hospital and codes. She is pronounced dead. About fifteen minutes later, she is going to be taken to the morgue and while being prepared, she sits up, alive, scaring the daylights out of the man sent to process her. She is a harsh, abusive, but beautiful woman who has spent her adult life in mourning for her father, the light of her world, when he took his own life. She blames her mother for this. She has also become a druggy and an alcoholic and pushes everyone away who tries to get close to her. A man she was living with is jerked around by her and can't figure her out. Upon checking herself out of the hospital, strange things begin to happen. For one, a weird growth moves around under her skin. Secondly, when she goes to sleep, she finds things have changed in her apartment. He doctor tells her that it has been discovered that the growth is brain tissue. She also finds out that when she was born, she was a Siamese twin and her sister was allowed to die so she could live. The brain tissue is residue from that person and it is becoming viable. The story moves forth with pain and emotion. What could be a maudlin, ridiculous plot, works on all levels. See this one.
