I can’t believe I missed posting about this episode. Well, this episode was forgettable.
A sort of Britney Spears/Beyonce pop star named Rayna (Jaime Lee Kirchner) has gotten threatening letters and one of her backup singers was hurt during her most recent show. Her manager (Jim Piddock) decides to get a doll to protect Rayna instead of hiring a bodyguard. His reasoning is that someone who wants to save you (read: imprinted) will be better than someone who is just doing their job. Enter wannabe Jordan/Echo (Eliza Dushku) who is just so thrilled to be near Rayna the great.
I wish they could just say, “It’s the hellmouth” when they need to set up a scenario instead of this ineffectual and tedious hand waving.
I get that Rayna is a ‘doll’ just like Echo but Rayna has the ability to make decisions – to leave the business or mediatate or something. Echo made one really bad decision, she gave up her right to be a person. Now she’s stuck.
The end was rather dull but I liked the setup. I liked watching Echo smile at the beginning as the wannabe.
Sierra (Dichen Lachman) was adorable in this episode.
Agent Ballard (Tahmoh Penikett) plugs along. The man has no hope of figuring this out.
