Body Count:

  • Kramer family, indirectly killed by Wolfram & Hart
  • Bradley Scott, died when Lindsey unplugged the machines keeping Bradley alive.

Monster of the Week: 

  • The Pockla: The Pockla are a group of demon healers who have the ability to regenerate flesh. But, because they're demons, they likely have no love for any humans who aren't sacrificing things for them, so they possibly imbued the reattached body parts with some of its former owner's mind.


  • Wolfram & Hart: Wolfram & Hart has giving its employees new appendages care of a bank of bodies in life support fueled holding cells. The people in this bank are apparently disgraced old employees, possibly ones who were caught doing something illegal or were scapegoatted to save the firm. Lindsey destroys the bank when he feels sympathy for Brad.


  1. Lindsey: Wolfram & Hart give Lindsey a second chance at having two hands. A new right hand is grafted onto where Angel hacked it off in the first season. He uses his newfound dexterity to start playing the guitar again. But, when the hand starts to act on its own, he decides to leave Wolfram & Hart because they gave him an evil hand.
  2. Lilah: Although Lindsey was going to be the one promoted, he lays the "evil hand" speech on the board room and makes a case for Lilah. She's promoted when he leaves.


For over a century, the vampire, Angelus, blazed a swath of murder and mayhem across Europe, until a gypsy curse restored his soul. His guilt and remorse eventually led him to Los Angeles where he battles evil and helps the helpless in his neverending quest for redemption.
