    Yeah, isn't it? But sometimes people can just so happen to slip around a phrase for decades. I suppose that's what happened with me and the "nothing good or bad, but thinking makes it so".

    Absolutely fantastic episode. Great plot and really funny (I LOLed at Victor in the club). Eliza and Enver were excellent.

    Definitely an improvement from the first two episodes and like everyone said, Enver was awesome. Also, loved the ending.

    Very very very good episode. This episode totally OWNED the two episodes before it. I know I'm just repeated what everyone has been saying, but Enver was just so so good and that scene when he was Kiki had me on the floor. Eliza was surprisingly good too.

    That looks really really good. Yay I hear Aussie-ness! I love when Adelle is like "Excuse me?"

    Yeah I heard that too. That's awesome. I like him, he's cool. Dexter is just awesome. I watched it this morning and it gave me a happy.

    The episode was nice overall, but I'm really pissed at how they always manage to "link" pretty much everything that happens to Echo....
    There are probably dozens of Actives out there right now, if anyone has a "link" to Victor it'd be Sierra.

    Why the hell did Victor and Echo of all people switch...?

    I really like Dollhouse but I'm really tired of how they tend to put Echo everywhere.

    Yeah, she's the main character and all but it can get too much.

    Victor as Kiki and "Kiki"/Paul was great though. ^^

    It's also weird that they were not at all surprised at the fact that they got linked.

    Also, I was really glad when she killed the client. Such a sleazy ....

    Hmm yeah I sort of agree, I think Echo is the least intriguing Dollhouse character, but like you said, she's the main character.

    Well I don't think they were exactly expecting it to just go perfectly, Topher had never done a remote wipe before.

    HAHA yeah same. That shocked me, was not expecting it at all. I really liked that story though. I liked how the guy was manipulating Kiki into thinking that she was in control, whereas it was him that was in total control the entire time.

    So the whole scene is season five of Angel when the Blue Fairy comes into Wolfram & Hart in Angel's hallucination to make Spike real, totally in one ear and out the other?
    And there were surely a couple others as well.

    Oh... well... I've only seen Angel once, shush!
    Plus that scene just broke my heart SO much, I think I repressed it.
    Little Angel in his little shirt and little pants, all sad...

    Yeah, in season 5 there were I think 2 or 3 "so one of us gets to be a real boy" lines in and after Destiny.

    Did he actually die? Did we find out? Because if he did, I wonder how the Dollhouse would cover that up, especially since the man is obviously loaded if he can afford a 7-digit hooker.

    Overall, my favouritist standalone. Enver and Eliza both gave awesome performances. How confusing would it be to write the scripts. You'd be like CRAZY GUY, then VICTOR/CRAZY GUY and ECHO/KIKI, then VICTOR/KIKI and ECHO/CRAZY GUY. Oh, the madness...

    I am pretty sure that Paul killed him.

    I agree. Definitely one of the better standalones.
    Just remember: there's nothing at all wrong with standalone episode. Most of the best Buffy episodes are standalones.

    Most of the worst Buffy episodes are also standalone though *flashbacks to Bad Eggs*

    What impression did you get?

    It really felt like he killed him since when Echo asked him if Terry dreamed, Paul answered "Not anymore" before Terry even flatlined and the only way for him to know...

    Oh, maybe it was because I didn't notice that Terry flatlined.

    I figured they were going to kill him and Adelle's line confirmed it but still for Ballard to of been the one to do it was a suprise.

    Like everyone else i was simply amazed by this episode. Kiki!Victor was awesome! I LOVED that whole bit of him in the nightclub and then he hugs Ballard who just looks at everyone and says "you got a problem?"

    Enver's acting was amazing, playing a serial killer and party girl in the same episode XD I saw an interview with Olivia and Enver where they mentioned about Enver having some fun scenes in an early episode for this season but I don't think ANYONE would of expected THAT.

    I always read spoilers, watch clips etc. of every show and movie. I also read the last 2 chapters of every book I read before I start at the beginning. I'm very impatient.
