A truly visually stunning fight between the two occurs in the kitchen of a Chinese restaurant which involves all sorts of hijacks including Echo getting slammed onto a car! But oh no, she isn't there to kill him. Someone inside the Dollhouse has put a little programme into her that reveals information to Ballard. She tells him that there are twenty Dollhouses world-wide and are connected to the highest governments and he can't take them alone. I think Ballard now has an ally in the Dollhouse and a very valuable one indeed.
However, Echo decides to shoot a cop for cover and flees the scene. Just when you think all the double crossing is over for the week, Hearn's attack on Mellie has a bit of a surprise. As she is getting beaten up, a nice haiku in the form of a phone call from Miss DeWitt activates a hypnotic imprint inside Mellie and she kills Hearn. Ah, the answer of who is she really is revealed. She is an active called November who has been spying on Ballard. Well, she'll have a lot more time to do so as Ballard is suspended after his gun was used to shoot the cop. But I'm sure that won't stop him....not without a fight.
- Who in the Dollhouse is helping Ballard?
- Is the spy in the Dollhouse with Alpha?
- What would you do with an Active yourself?
The story is in full motion now and I'm sure you all would agree we are heading for an exciting season and Echo-mania will squash these horrible cancellation rumours! Who's with me?
See you next time
