Dubbed the "Dollhouse" episode that "you'll never forget", the March 20 story is written by the creator himself, Joss Whedon. Echo tries to help a client heal the ache of a lost love as a TV reporter prepares an expose on the Dollhouse. Whedon himself said the episode represents "a much stronger vision" he considers the show to be.
Echo becomes the perfect wife for a lonely Internet mogul (guest star Patton Oswalt), and Sierra's attacker is revealed. Meanwhile, Mellie's life is in danger and Agent Ballard's investigation takes a surprising turn when he comes face-to-face and goes fist-to-fist with Echo for the first very time.
Called "Man on the Street", the ep is airing March 20.
Although entering with mediocre rating in the beginning of the season, Whedon promises that the show will pick up the pace. He said, "For me, the question isn't just whether a show is enjoyable, but whether it's more than the sum of its fun, whether it truly touches, surprises or connects with you. These (episodes) may do none of the above - I'm not the boss of your opinion - but I feel strongly that they, and the eps to follow, are pretty intense, and very much worth the watching."
