Storyline

Echo is programed to go under cover as a blind woman at religious cult in Arizona after a corrupt senator recruits Dollhouse to assist the ATF in the breakup of the cult. But with Boyd watching from a distance, he soon learns that the Jonas Sparrow cult may be more difficult to handle, and the ATF agent in charge has an ulterior motive... as does Dominic when the situation takes a turn for the worse. Meanwhile, Agent Ballard continues his relentless quest to look for Echo while his neighbor, Mellie, continues to harbor a crush on him. Also, Topher and Dr. Saunders monitor Victor when he begins exhibiting primordial behavior whenever he's around Sierra. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Dr. Claire Saunders, looking through the video archive for instances of Victor getting an erection in the shower, says, "If it'd been a snake... Please pretend I didn't say that." The complete adage says, "If it had been a snake, it would have bitten me" (or various words to that effect), meaning that the speaker was surprised by something that should be immediately obvious. This saying occurs often (with varied wordings) in science fiction and fantasy, as when Paradox says it in Ben 10: Alien Force (2008) and when Buckaroo says it in The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984).

Little Dollhouse on the Prairie
14 March 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

It's only the 5th episode and I'm almost bored by the show. I mean it's not interesting anymore when you can see behind the curtain as the same patterns are applied over and over. A new mission and side story, a few minutes about the main one… The episodes almost feel like fillers. I don't mind as long as the screenplay is catchy and original but this one… Its ending was as disappointing as the one from Stage Fright and Gray Hour because after The Target it's obvious they all end up the same way, with Echo remembering something after waking up and saying "Did I fall asleep ?". The Sleeping Beauty effect has its limit, even for Eliza. Of course the cop's investigation advanced but I don't really like that story arc. What happened to Victor was funny but I'm not really fond of the programmer. His scene with the Doctor wasn't as hilarious as it should have been. The worst part was the writing and the whole cult idea. I mean it's so old ! Considering Echo's character it almost felt like watching Little House on the Prairie.
