In the year 2020, events finally come full-circle as Echo and the few surviving Dollhouse staff struggle to restore mankind after the devastating events seen in the first season episode, "Epitaph" that has turned 90% of Earth's population into mindless, kill-crazy zombies out to kill those not infected (called 'actuals') by the Rossum's remote mind-wipe system. In the meantime, fellow "actuals", Mag, Zone, and the mind-restored Caroline set out to find "Safe Haven" that can save man-kind from total extinction. Written by matt-282

In the beginning of the episode, Adele and T pick strawberries, which appear to be a rarity during that time. This is a nod to another Joss show, Firefly, where they are also a rarity and enjoyed by Kaylee when they are found. See more »

Fantastic Final Concept.
5 February 2010 | by VedNovakSee all my reviews

It's rather unfortunate that "Dollhouse" was sent to the attic. However, I was very impressed with the direction of the final episode. The post-apocalyptic look was very well integrated. You can tell Joss is an enthusiast of classics like Mad Max and other post-apoc. movies because he did this episode so well.

I was glad to see his attention to detail in this final vision of "Dollhouse". My Favourite element was the various clans of people, for example, the Tech Freaks. These were soldiers who are addicted to uploading themselves with the best skill sets and the goal is to be like "Echo". Even the dialogue felt futuristic and appropriate. When Victor was talking to one of soldiers and he was getting aggravated with him, he told him to "Log off". I got a big smile on my face when I heard this because I thought it was such a clever representation of how conversation has changed and what "lingo" is used in their time.

While watching this episode, I kept thinking to myself that Joss should turn this into a feature film. Maybe not "Dollhouse" per se (Although, I'd still watch it if he managed to do that) but more so use the fundamentals of this final episode to create a feature length story out of it. The final episode has so MUCH potential to grow and expand into a powerful story and I have faith that Joss could do it.

He created a movie out of Firefly, I think he could pull it off for "Dollhouse" or more specifically out of this final episode, Epitaph Two: Return.
