Dead Head is the fifth episode of the second season of Human Target, and the seventeenth overall.


When a client's sudden and suspicious amnesia prevents him from remembering his own identity — and knowing who might want him dead — Winston is forced to ask his own ex-wife for help. As the client's memory returns, the problems just keep coming, and the tale gets progressively less appealing and harder to swallow - and more crammed with indiscriminate bad guys.
