Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard

When Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) suffers one of her visions, Angel (David Boreanaz) and his crew discover the existence of Bethany Chaulk (Daisy McCrackin), an emotionally disturbed young telekinetic. Even after her out-of-control powers impale Angel with a metal spike, he extends an offer of help and sanctuary. As it turns out, though, Bethany is actually living with evil Wolfram & Hart associate Lilah Morgan (Stephanie Romanov), who plans to manipulate the young woman into being an assassin for the firm. In a moment of distress, Bethany accidentally injures Lilah, and, wracked by guilt at having hurt her supposed friend, heads to Angel for advice. With the help of Gunn (J. August Richards), who has recently become a paid employee of Angel Investigations, Angel figures out what's really going on and attempts to warn Bethany about Wolfram & Hart. Then Lilah brings out the big guns, staging an impromptu reunion between Bethany and her abusive father (Gareth Williams). Now fully in control of her powers, Bethany teaches her father a lesson, and with Angel's help, starts a new life. Meanwhile, Darla (Julie Benz) continues her nocturnal visits to Angel's bedroom, disrupting his sleep patterns and leaving him obsessed. Originally broadcast October 17, 2000, on the WB network, "Untouched" marked season two, episode four of the supernatural comedy drama. When Angel gets impaled on a reebar in this episode, it prompts a crack from Cordelia about a similar injury she received on Buffy in "Lovers Walk."
