Suicidal popstar, crazy obsessed fan and Echos combat and psychological reasoning skills to the rescue.
For me this episode was really confusing cause I couldnt relate to Diva great problem -she didnt make any sense. First, she wants a beautiful death on stage so people would remember her till the end of their lifes. However, when she is given an opportunity to die like a real heroine saving her Nr 1 fan,a.k.a. Sierra, she suddenly chickens out. So was this all I want to be free talk just a cry for attention? Totally emo.
Anyway, Echos (Jeremys) sollution to the problem was perfect, at least for some time this annoying singer wont try anything stupid, selfish and dangerous.
Second thing I didnt really get - why was Sierra even brought into the operation, not that she was a great help. Did the writers just feel guilty about underusing her character?
Things that I found interesting - Lubov turns out to be an active named Victor -so it means that he is programmed to mess the investigation on Dollhouse conducted by that persistent policeman. This would however be much more intriguing if that detective wasnt such a moron and thought over at least 7 times before he went alone into some suspicious basement. I totally agreed with that russian guy who called agent Ballard an idiot.Did he really think he find the stock of doll-actives in some mauldy basement??? Unbelievebly naive.
I also liked the ending scene when Sierra smiled to Echo, but Echo shook her head signaling that its better not to communicate with each other while the watcher and that angry guy Laurence Dominic (he really needs to chill) are watching. Does it mean that both girls are developing a personality, which is something combined from memory bits which are not thoroughly wiped? Or are that their real personalities waking up? Quite a mystery, dont you agree?
Honestly, I liked previous episode(The.Target) much better - it provided much more suspense and creadability. Still, I'm waiting eagerly for the next episode, and I'm not gonna give up on these series- In Joss Whedon we trust^_^
