As Topher would say: "So close!". They almost got it. Echo almost got to see Ballard's comatose body; Victor and Sierra almost got out of the Dollhouse with their real personalities and Echo almost didn't get sent to the attic. Damn you Adele! Thinks were going so well when she was to drunk to work.
That's the thing that I love about Dollhouse, the entire episode wasn't that strong but way to end it with a bang. I love it when I say to myself: "did not see that coming". This is actually my second viewing of Dollhouse (yes, I have a very bad memory!) but I love that, even though I know that Victor and Sierra were coming back to the Dollhouse, I hoped that they did escape and get to live a little. Everything seems to be going so well, I actually believe, for a brief moment, that everything would end well.
Oh well, at least now we get to see the Attic!
