(SPOILER) A look at the Dollhouse season 2 premiere. 'Vows' gets described as "relaxed" and we get some good teasers as to what happens during the episode.

Interesting that Echo is not properly 'fixed' after her encounter with Alpha and consequently, interesting that she is remaining as an Active. Surely thats going to present DeWitt with some ethical questions, namely what to do with a broken doll who she seems to be forming some kind of emotional attachment too. The cold resolution would be to send her to the attic, as you can hardly send out a malfunctioning Active AND expect them to perform to standard on a mission. When it (inevitably) goes wrong, the ramifications to the reputation of the dollhouse and then by effect the income would be disastarous. But yet Echo remains...

I'm getting more and more excited about the premiere. Even if its not as wonderful as AICN are making out, I feel we are in for a solid start to the season. And even then, if its something of a dissapointment, "When She Was Bad" and "Judgement" are hardly indicative of the quality output of their respective seasons in general. So a good thing is coming methinks.
What I find so interesting is that Adelle is clearly attatched to Echo but she still has a lot of resentment towards Caroline, even in Epitaph One. That's kind of mind-bending and fantastically twisted.
Well I likewise think Echo is potentially awesome but Caroline sort of bothered me. Most of all just in that flashbacky episode on the college campus.

I'm intrigued by the offhand Sierra thing though. I'm momentarily thinking of that Dave Chappelle Show joke where a blind black guy was actually part of the Ku Klux Klan except I can't really figure out why someone would program her that way.
I'm actually the same. Echo is awesome but Caroline is a little too idealistic and irritating. I actually felt guilty in Omega because I didnít want Caroline back in her body.
Wasn't fond of Caroline either.
I actually don't think I know a single person who is [fond of her]but at least Echo rocks my world though.

I like Caroline a lot. World needs more idealistic people.
I quite liked Caroline in Epitaph One.

It's going to be a bit weird to see Alexis with his American accent. I'm so used to the English one!

Agreed. I like Caroline as well, it just seems that she has yet to have the "shine" come off her eyes yet. Of course, that was never going to happen once she signed her body over.

Although since I have to blame her for the lame "black president" line, maybe I don't like her as much.

Nothing wrong with being idealistic. The fact that she is short sighted and clumsy in execution is her problem.
