I knew there was some sort of twist about Perrin's wife being the doll, but I didn't figure it to be Perrin until just before the reveal.
Summer as Bennett was awesome. Her interplay with Topher was endlessly amusing (and only second to Topher's interplay with himself.) Joss was getting a bit too heavy-handed with the god motif, though, especially with the Greek names being used for the Washington dolls. I did like Topher suspecting that she was an active. I hope we'll get more of her backstory with Caroline and this wasn't it.
Wow, sucks to be Madeline/November. I can only imagine her fate is the attic. At least she had the chance to more or less tell off Bellard, who seems to have quit. (???)
Victor as Topher was awesome. I'm surprised they don't do more of that multiple imprinting.
Needed more Sierra.
I'm glad we didn't have to wait a week after Bennett started torturing Echo at the hour mark.
Is Topher calling Echo a friend a sign of Caroline's power or is it because Topher is just that socially stunted? Its a shame he had to attack Bennett because that relationship felt like it had more potential. (Also I was surprised that Topher would hit a girl... she was an evil girl, and Topher's no saint, but something felt offputting about that punch.)
With Bellard and Echo out on their own, I'm feeling compelled to track down Epitaph One. Also, according to this Joss interview (featuresblogs.chicagotribune.com), the finale is called

Epitaph Two: Return.
At least it looks like the show will go out strong.
You believe me, don't you? Please believe what I just said...

I think Madeline is going to be working for Bennett and her own weird little agenda vs. Caroline from now on...
And it looks like the Echo/Ballard tag-team forms next week, according to the previews...
Loved the whole two-parter...Topher/Topher was awesome.
I don't think I caught the D.C. dolls' names.

I was a little pissed about the ending. It seems like another stall tatic, but if they are going not make Epitha One the finale, then I guess it works. I did love Topher/Topher. He has come on strong this year and its a shame Fox refuses to support this show, because he has been almost Emmy worthy.

Originally posted by ges7184Enver Gjokaj is just outstanding! His Topher was spot on. I wished the other actors on this show had his range. But that was just great!
Agreed. I hope that we see Gjokaj pop up on another show soon, since his mimicry skills are fantastic. His impression of Reed Diamond in last season's finale was also dead-on. Too bad 'Dollhouse' isn't lasting longer just so we could see him impersonate Ballard, Adelle and the rest of the cast.
Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.
Not the strongest episode to close out the season but a pretty damn good one. As (briefly) a former goth kid in high school, I was totally on the goth kids' side against the douchey little vampire kids who love Twilight and shop at Hot Topic.
