Storyline

Echo, Victor, Sierra, Mellie/November, and another Active mysteriously awaken with them aware of their identities, but not their memories. The five of them start to search for answers about the Dollhouse facility they as well as how they got there and how to escape. In trying to find her own answers, Echo discovers more about herself, while Victor and Sierra escape to look for the man who recruited Sierra, and November searches for her missing daughter. But Adelle soon learns about the Active's glitch and sets her own agenda with the help of Boyd, Dr. Saunders, Dominic, and Topher to help her out. Meanwhile, Ballard discovers the hidden surveillance camera in his apartment and it sets him back on the path to finding the Dollhouse. Written by matt-282

Trivia

At around minute 48, when Sierra walks past the room of her past trauma, and after they've gotten closure and returned to tabula rasa, the camera focuses on the glass of the doors. If you look closely, you can see subtle hand prints on the glass. Almost like a ghostly memory of what happened in there; a memory apparently from which Sierra no longer suffers. See more »

Goofs

When Echo first jumps out of the SUV in the car-park, and argues with the other dolls about staying, the elevator door in the basement is closed, and she is on the "right" of the car and the lift (as we see it). When the shot changes, the lift door is open, and Echo approaches from the left of the lift with the car on her right. See more »

Quotes
