From here on out, over the remaining nine episodes, Dollhouse tightens up significantly, and rides a bullet train of brilliance to its abrupt finale.
I shouldn’t say too much about what unfolds, other than that show maintains a high level of tension and forward of momentum.
Better is the tragic episode of Echo’s fellow doll Sierra (the soulful Dichen Lachman).
Heretofore she had been mostly a bit player on the show, but in the episode “Belonging” we see her back story fleshed out.
The biggest surprise of Dollhouse is not that it made it to a second season, but that it made it on the air at all.
