Last week’s premier of Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse captured my interest. I enjoyed it a lot, but it didn’t blow me away like the pilot of Firefly. Episode two is a totally different story.
With the characters and premise fresh in my mind, Joss & co. just dove in headfirst. The episode started typical enough and then BAM! The most outrageous plot twist. I think I had the same facial expression that leading lady Echo (Eliza Dushku) had when the reveal came. I think I was just as shocked and confused as she was. It’s rare when I can watch a scene where I feel the same way as the character in the scene.
The rest of the episode was exceptionally thrilling and clearly planted the seeds for future plot threads and conflict.
I can’t wait to see where this is going.
I have no intentions of spoiling it if you didn’t already see it.
