Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
Having suffered through two years of the painful visions bequeathed to her by Doyle (see "Parting Gifts"), Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) finds that the premonitions are taking an ever heavier toll, both emotionally and physically. Her horrific vision of an apparently happy family man plunging a knife into his eye. It turns out he was the recipient of a cursed transplant from a predatory organ bank run by Wolfram & Hart. Lawyer Lindsey McDonald (Christian Kane) soon receives a new hand from the very same institution and learns that the appendage has an evil mind of its own. Crossing paths at demon karaoke bar Caritas, mortal enemies Lindsey and Angel (David Boreanaz) are urged by the Host (Andy Hallett) to work together on the case. They soon uncover the organ bank, which is full of living and half-dead involuntary donors -- including an old buddy of Lindsey's. He and Angel kill the hard-luck cases and save the rest. Lilah Morgan (Stephanie Romanov), on the basis of the firm's magnanimous biological gift to her rival, is convinced that she's going to be knocked off and Lindsey promoted. But, once again disgusted by his firm's tactics (see "Blind Date"), Lindsey quits, taking with him enough sensitive documents to protect himself from any sudden "accidents." Lilah gets the job, and Angel and Lindsey part, if not friends, then at least neutral to one another. Originally broadcast April 24, 2001, on the WB network, "Dead End" marked season two, episode 18 of the supernatural comedy drama.
