Storyline

Victor's five-year contract with the Dollhouse elapses and he goes back out into the real world under his old personality of Anthony Ceccoli. But his past as a soldier fighting in Afghanistan (whom he was running from in the first place) threatens his present with Sierra who remains behind at Dollhouse and is conflicted over Victor's absence. Meanwhile, Echo continues to keep an eye on the comatose Ballard, while Adelle slips into hopelessness over recent events. When Victor/Anthony is captured by a rogue military unit with ties to Rossum Corp. Echo is forced to recruit Sierra, under her real personality of Priya, to help rescue Victor/Anthony while Boyd and Topher monitor and keep Adelle in check to avoid her finding out what is going on behind the scenes.

Trivia

Adelle says, "Pain reveals who you really are." The villain in Firefly (2002) episode 'War Stories' said something similar. Both series were created by Joss Whedon. See more »

Goofs

To aim a gun, it's common to close one eye. When Echo shoots out the bunker's camera, she closes the wrong eye, the one more nearly in line with the gun's sights; she shouldn't be able to hit anything. See more »

Victor leaves the Dollhouse
6 February 2019 | by TweekumsSee all my reviews

Victor has been at the Dollhouse for five years so his contract is coming to an end. Adelle uses for one last personal engagement but it doesn't end well for her emotionally. He is then released from his contract and Anthony Ceccoli walks out and restarts his life... or he would if another part of Rossum didn't have plans for him. They kidnap him that night and take him to a secret facility to recruit him into a military unit made up of ex-dolls whose minds are connected. Topher realises that something is wrong and tells Boyd; soon Echo, with Sierra's help, is mounting a rescue mission.

This was another enjoyable episode. It provided good character development for Adelle, Echo, Sierra and particularly Victor as well as some fine action sequences. It opens well with Adelle's disappointment as Victor's 'Roger' persona dumps her; while this section could easily be seen as a mere prologue it serves to set up Adelle's emotional state for the remainder of the episode. Victor's release from the dollhouse and subsequent kidnapping were interesting as was the revelation about those who took him. Echo gets good development as we learn more about her relationship with her various personas. The cast does a solid job; most notably Enver Gjokaj, who takes centre stage as Victor. The episode's main plot line is nicely wrapped up by the end but the final scenes set things up for the next episode. Overall a fine episode which left me keen to discover what will happen next.
