Storyline

Echo is imprinted with the memory of a mother with a newborn baby for Dollhouse's latest business client. Complications arise when, thanks to Topher's programming, Echo takes too strongly to motherhood due to her maternal instincts. Meanwhile, Senator Perrin escalates his investigation into Rossum Corporation over the imprint technology. Also, DeWitt pays a visit to the former active November (now in her real personality of Madeline Costley) where she has a dark agenda of her own. Written by matt-282

Topher outplays himself, and gets a bloody nose for it
22 October 2010 | by See all my reviews

"Instinct" comes dangerously close to being a "filler-ish" episode. It doesn't advance the plot much - Echo's imprints are still working (in this case, working all too well), but her memory wipes are not; after each engagement is over, she retains the feelings and experiences that her characters go through. Dushku gives one of her most convincing performances, and there is a good jolt when Topher puts Echo in the chair. Nice to see Miracle Laurie again, but the only purpose of her return seems to be the contrast between her blissfully ignorant state of mind about her Dollhouse years and Echo's current overload. The anti-Dollhouse crusading senator pops up again, and gets a break in his investigation by an unknown "friend"; his pretty wife seems to be on his side all the way, but I still have my suspicions about her. *** out of 4.
