Echo becomes the ultimate outdoorswoman when a handsome young client, Richard Connell, hires her as a date for a wilderness adventure. But unknown to the Dollhouse, Richard's true sport is hunting humans - with Echo intended as his next victim. Meanwhile, Agent Ballard continues investigating the origins of the Dollhouse, hindered by both his skeptical superior Tanaka, and his colleagues who continues to dismiss it as a legend. Eventually, Ballard receives a clue about Echo/Caroline's past from an anonymous source. Also, periodic flashbacks show how Boyd came to work for Adelle and be assigned as Echo's handler, his first meeting with tech Topher, and how Dr. Claire Saunders received her facial scars from the shadowy Alpha; a rogue active who may or may not still be on the loose.
