Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Echo / Crystal / Caroline Farrell
Sophie Alvarez
Wendy / Caroline
Tanaka (as Mark A. Sheppard)


Having abducted Echo, Alpha attempts to recreate the "composite event" that resulted in his becoming a mosaic of all the imprints he'd ever had, so as to make her a fitting companion for himself - at a frightening cost. Meanwhile, Ballard must overcome his scruples when Boyd and Adelle ask him to work with the Dollhouse to find Echo and Alpha before it's too late. Meanwhile, there are disturbing revelations about Alpha's background - and that of Dr. Saunders as well. Written by matt-282

Alan Tudyk being cast as Alpha marks the fourth time Joss Whedon has used members of the core cast of Firefly (2002) as villains for his other shows. Previously he did the same with Nathan Fillion on the final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) and Gina Torres on the fourth season of Angel (1999) and Adam Baldwin in the 5th season of Angel (1999) See more »

Finally gets it right
9 May 2009 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

With this possibly penultimate episode "Dollhouse" finally delivers on all the promise it's shown until now. Engaging, mysterious and thought provoking. Tim Minears script somehow manages to reference both "Blade Runner", "Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind", "Buffy the vampire slayer", the bible and even one of his own (unproduced) feature scripts, while still ending up with something that is utterly unique. Amy Acker, Fran Kranz and Allan Tudyk delivers stellar performances. And the next episode promises to be somewhat mind blowing to bad it'll be 12 or so weeks till we get to see it, i hope there is some miraculous way this show can get renewed.
