Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
Long averse to turning Angel Investigations into a purely for-profit venture, new dad Angel (David Boreanaz) suddenly becomes money-conscious when it comes to the welfare of his son. He advertises online, and the crew find themselves spread rather thin by the flood of new business. Angel gets conned by a businessman who turns out not to be who he claimed. Wesley (Alexis Denisof) and Gunn (J. August Richards) try to save a woman from her now-undead stalker ex-boyfriend, but lady and zombie ultimately decide to overcome their differences. Fred (Amy Acker) and The Host (Andy Hallett) take a 50,000-dollar gig helping some demons solve a complex puzzle, but Cordelia (Charisma Carpenter) learns in a vision that the demons actually want to harvest Fred's head and use it to revive their ailing leader. Angel, Wes, and Gunn save the day, and the gang decide to pocket the 50 grand for their troubles. Originally broadcast January 21, 2002, on the WB network, "Provider" marked season three, episode 12 of the supernatural comedy drama.
