Storyline

In the year 2019, a small group of survivors stumble upon the underground complex of the disused Los Angeles Dollhouse. The group, Mag, Zone, Griff, Lynn, along with a little girl named Iris and her mind-wiped father are "actuals," actual-minded people struggling to survive in a post-apocalyptic society where a tech mind wipe has turned most of Earth's population into "scavengers" or "butchers." Mag and her team struggle to unlock the secrets of what brought on this disaster where the Dollhouse's mind imprinting technology was discovered and abused by the world in which the answer lies within the active Whiskey, who still resides there and who may know where the former active Echo/Caroline is and whom may lead the group to a place called "Safe Haven," while a mysterious and lethal evil lurks among them. Periodic flashbacks show how Paul Ballard became Echo's handler, and how DeWitt realized that Rossum used the imprint technology in their capacity to bring on the end of the world ...

Up there with any Whedon
17 November 2009 | by (London) – See all my reviews

This really is stunning, by far the best episode of Dollhouse. Well, it isn't even really an episode of Dollhouse and should really have been the 'Serenity' to the series' 'Firefly'. It is cinema quality and a worthy story of full movie treatment. I only hope it is pursued at some point. I thought Dollhouse was a great first season, with a terrific finale, but this has surpassed the show by a long way, and its really a crime that it received a low-level release. I urge all Whedon fans to buy or get hold of the series and watch this 'epitaph' last. How the series goes on from here (i wont spoil it by even hinting what happens) is anyone's guess, but I cannot wait to see the second season now. Joss Rocks!!
