Prediction: Adele is directly responsible for what's happening with Echo. It's no accident.
Never thought of that. I was mostly running through what possible connections Adelle could have had with Caroline (a relative, maybe?) but it would be awesome if Adelle herself was on some kind of inside job/vendetta to bring down the dollhouse.
IMHO, all the bitching points about ED's acting that I've read online pretty much got thrown out the window in this week's (and honestly, last week's) episode. Maybe it's just me, but Eliza's acting in the past couple of episodes has been on par (or better, in some scenes) than anything Sarah Michelle Gellar managed to crank out on Buffy
Methinks Topher has a wittle man-reaction to Dr. Saunders. And it's kind of sweet. God, am I shipping those two? I totally am. I actually liked Topher in this episode. He acted less like Warren Meers, which is always a good thing.
And Mellie's melons? Wowsers. For all the good they did her, she might as well have been wearing a turtleneck. I'm caught between thinking Mellie is adorable and wanting to tell her to grab some dignity and stop being so frakkin' needy. Girl, grab a pan of lasagna and a gallon of ice cream, because he's just not that into you.
Laurence is still the hottest creepy asshole flunky guy on television, but I'd better not get too used to him. He's on Echo's shitlist--and deservedly so--and when she snaps, they'll be carrying him out of the dollhouse in several Hefty bags. I'm a little surprised at the mildness of Adelle's reaction to his big-ass step out of line. I'd have thought that kind of insubordination would've earned at least a castration in the dollhouse. And I'm having trouble believing that his attempted neutralizing of Echo is purely for professional reasons (he's afraid she'll snap like Alpha) like he wants Adelle to think. After all, just because someone euthanizes a rabid dog doesn't mean the euthanizer hates the dog--it just has to be done. But the way he taunted Echo in her doll state--a cruel and useless move, considering that, for all he knew, she didn't know what he was talking about--I think Laurence might want her dead for his own personal reasons...something to do with Adelle's connection to her, maybe.
Any bets on the mail room guy being Alpha?
TV Gods, make it so.
