We finally enter the mysterious Attic - the secret vault where the Dollhouse keeps damaged actives and problematic employees unconscious and in a perpetual state of terror. Adelle has had Echo sent there, along with Victor and Sierra, on the grounds that her multiple imprints and their growing self-awareness are making the three a danger to Rossum. In the dream-world of the Attic, Echo and her friends forced to face their worst nightmares repeatedly, and their only ally is former Dollhouse security head Laurence Dominic, sent there earlier when he was discovered to be a spy for the NSA. Together they must confront a mysterious predator bent on killing the Attic's prisoners, as they try to uncover the mystery of the Attic's true nature and purpose. Meanwhile, Adelle forces Topher to find a way to restore Ballard's damaged brain in order to revive him - at a terrible cost. Written by Anonymous

Boyd Langton: What do we know about the attic?
Topher Brink: No one comes back, Boyd.
Boyd Langton: But why? What do they do to them in there?
Topher Brink: I don't know: experimenting, torture. They're testing the limits of the human mind. The brain is kept in a fear induced adrenaline fueled overdrive state like a problem you can't solve. Either the nightmare lasts forever or...
Boyd Langton: Or it doesn't last at all.

If Every episode had been this good........
23 December 2009 | by (Pittsville, New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

Or even somewhere close, this show wouldn't be getting down to 3 final episodes.

If there's one thing Joss Whedon can do, it's conclude a series. While the formula is there for all his series, its disguised well enough that you don't see it coming until it smacks you in the face.

Here comes the spoiler: The main characters face what suddenly seems like insurmountable odds, there might be a turncoat in their midst, who ends up not being a turncoat after all, and a villain turns ally.

He still does it very well, and for the first time, I'm actually sad that this series is going away. I watched it sporadically until the last couple of weeks, but they've caught a good wind, and it's too bad the series is going gone.
