When Echo and the deputy start to take Galina away on her gurney, both her arms are partly in the sleeves of her orange prison jumpsuit. In the next shot in the corridor, the jumpsuit is completely off her upper body, her arms lying atop it. See more »


Topher Brink: I think they're trying to build a portable device that would be able to imprint anyone without any active architecture in place. Any innocent on the street with a new personality.
Adelle DeWitt: That's unnerving.
Topher Brink: What's unnerving is - I figured out how to do it.

Echo is lost in the 'real world'
30 January 2019 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

After the events of the previous episode Echo has disappeared into the world in her doll state. Somehow she makes her way to Texas and her actions lead to the jailing of another woman, Galena. Three months pass and she is working as a nurse, planning to break Galena out of prison. Meanwhile Adelle has been replaced as head of the LA Dollhouse and her replacement is less concerned about the wellbeing of the dolls. He has also tasked Topher to work on the portable device that can remotely return actives to their doll state... he believes that it is part of a more sinister scheme.

This was a solid episode that had elements of a standalone story while also advancing the main series plot arc. It was interesting to see how Echo survived in the outside world thanks to being able to access the personalities she had previously been imprinted with... and how this appears to be negatively effecting her. These personalities enable her to give us some great action scenes during the struggle that led to Galena's jailing and later during the jail break. The changes at the LA Dollhouse were possibly even more interesting as the power dynamic has changed; it will be interesting to see how the events we see in this episode develop.
