Nerds of the Round Table

For all things good and nerdy

Dollhouse is Back Tonight

Thats right, Dollhouse is returning for its final run of 3 episodes.  We have 3 left until the end of the series.  It’s really a shame because the show had finally hit stride!  This episode is entitled “Getting Closer” and the official preview is below.

Topher races to reconstruct Echo’s original personality and memories when Adelle realizes they are the key to adverting a devastating future. Meanwhile, Echo and Bennett’s shared past and the identity of the Rossum’s Corpration’s mysterious leader are revealed.

Judging by the past few episodes we’ll find out a lot more.  Here’s some things to consider:

  • What is Ballard missing now?  In order to save his life Topher had to rewire his brain and remove one of his abilities.  All we know is that Ballard is going to be pissed off when he finds out he’s been changed.  Maybe we’ll find out what happened to him.  Here’s a few of my ideas: 1. Ballard can no longer fight.  Brain rewiring could wreak havoc on hand-eye coordination.  2. Ballard has lost the ability to feel certain emotions like love.  This would be very Whedonesque.  Just look at his other shows, he loves to have unrequited or impossible love.  Examples include Buffy and Angel, Buffy and Spike, Mal and Inara, and now possibly Ballard and Echo.
  • Echo is getting Caroline put back in her head.  Will Caroline become dominant again?
  • What is the connection between Bennet (Summer Glau) and Caroline?

We might find out some of those answers, but until then check out the trailer for the newest episode below.
