“Dollhouse”: The Awakening
However, while I don't want to be too optimistic, the marketing spot for tonight's episode suggests that it may, finally, get to that point. Tonight, Echo snaps the hell out of it. She and her Dollmates are going rogue. It seems a little premature to be doing so, at this early stage of the series' run, but given the almost certain fact that there are only five episodes left, maybe it is time. What's even more impressive about this trailer is that, for a second and a half in this spot, Echo actually sounds like a real person.
I'm not going to get my hopes up, but I'm for damn sure going to watch just to see if Whedon actually does manage to pull "Dollhouse" out of its tailspin. Check out this TV spot:
