The big episode wasn’t that big.

Agent Ballard finally sees Echo in the flesh, the man on the street speculates about the Actives, but the real horror lies hidden within the Dollhouse.

The documentary comments weren’t that hard-hitting I didn’t think.  Ballard’s heart to heart talk with someone who can tell him about the dollhouse was a wee bit dull. The mystery surrounding who’s been abusing Sierra was riveting.  It was horrible and believable and nothing good will come of it.

Sierra is my favorite of the actives and I really am dismayed at what happened.

Ha! I knew Mellie was an active: nobody could be that needy, spineless, brain-dead and sweet.  And wow.  Who was she was before?  In a side note, it is pleasant to see that Ballard has noticed Mellie’s puppyish pursuit of him.  I thought perhaps his libido had been extracted.

And Echo was surprising, and not just to Agent Ballard.

Hi-lite for speculation: it’s Topher’s assistant Ivy (Liza Lapira) who’s monkeying with the active’s brains. That’s what I think.

This is not as good as the hype but I’m emotionally involved now and the mystery is pretty intense.  I don’t feel that the world of the Dollhouse has fallen apart as other viewers have suggested.  It’s just widened a little.
