Storyline

While a street reporter interviews random passersby about the urban legend of the Dollhouse, Ballard continues his obsessive quest for evidence of its existence, leading to an encounter with dot-com billionaire Joel Mynor, where he finally meets Echo face-to-face in her "programmed" state, and learns a little more about the Dollhouse clientèle. Meanwhile, it appears that Victor has been sexually abusing Sierra. DeWitt wants to have Victor sent to "the Attic", but Boyd suspects all may not be as it appears. Elsewhere, Ballard increasingly confides in his neighbor Mellie, and finally begins a romance with her, unaware that he may be putting her in danger by doing so. DeWitt decides to take more decisive action against the threat posed by Ballard - with unexpected consequences. And there are ominous hints that the Dollhouse may be much more than it appears.

The best episode yet
21 March 2009 | by red_persuasionSee all my reviews

We all knew that Whedon had it up his sleeve but was waiting to pull it out. This episode was simply brilliant. You expected four in one episode. This will be the episode that will guide the series from here. I was disappointed with some of the earlier episodes *cough*episode 1*cough*episode 3*cough* but this episode shows Whedon is back. The episode well, what can I say without going into spoiler territory? Well, it shows an enormous change in the FBI character's plot and a change to the way Echo will behave and it adds a new question to the story that you will have to see for yourself in the episode and it gave insight into the scale of the Dollhouse.
