As someone mentioned in the MC Forum, Miracle Laurie (November) is an amazing actor. She really sells “brainwashed” in a way that makes her seem equal parts docile and also eager to please. If Dollhouse gets canned, someone needs to add her to their show immediately.
This week’s episode was the strongest one yet. Without spoiling, a lot of it seemed to be ripped right out of an EMC story. I saw elements of Vendatrix (the reprogrammed Active who has already been snared), Trilby Else (generally the idea that they won’t escape/are being watched seems to be a theme he goes back to) and one of my favorite stories My Girl Imogen, which seems more and more to have been a EMCSA precursor to this show.
