When Margaret Bashford, a wealthy friend of Adelle's dies, Adelle has Margaret's memories implanted in Echo to try to solve her own murder. Posing as Julia, a pen-pal of Margarets, Echo/Margaret tries to solve the case during what she sees as her "second chance". Boyd, now the new security director of Dollhouse, imprints Victor to help Echo out as a racehorse owner which may hold the key to the mysterious. Meanwhile, Topher signs Sierra out for an intensive "benchmark" imprint, which turns out to be that of a fellow gamer nerd and friend. Elsewhere, Ballard obtains Mellie/November's fingerprints and sneaks into the FBI headquarters to run them to ascertain her true identity. But the computer spews out a multitude of names and then goes blank. Written by matt-282

Did You Know?


The estate belonging to the dead woman Echo imprints is the same set (or possibly real building) that was used during the production of Gilmore Girls (2000), in which it was used as Rory's private school Chilton. Incidentally, Gregg Henry who plays the dead woman's brother used to play Mitchum Huntzberger on Gilmore Girls, the father of Rory's boyfriend Logan. See more »

So bad that I stopped watching it after nearly 20 painful minutes
27 April 2009 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I probably over rated the previous episode because I can't resist spy fiction but this time I didn't dig the story at all. It was as boring and old as the one from True Believer. Moreover I found Eliza Dushku performance quite disappointing and Echo's new character completely mismatched. The usual geek joke was also as annoying as the previous ones. The worst thing is that I never gave up so quickly and don't even think I'll take the time to check out the other episodes. I don't mind new story arcs as long as they develop characters and bring something refreshing but this time it seems it wasn't the case. Just an empty, quick written and dirty filler. Note that I could be wrong considering as I haven't watched it completely but you can't just ask a viewer to endure 20 minutes or more. Even if I enjoyed some episodes it won't be a surprise if the show gets canceled.
