(SPOILER) Press Release for Dollhouse 2x12. This is the penultimate episode of the series titled "The Hollow Men" and it will air on January 15th.

Hmm, I love the guest stars. It's great that everybody is back not only for 2x11, but also for this episode... and hopefully for the finale as well. ;-)
Bare bones. I like it.
If Amy Acker is in episodes 11 and 12, then presumably she is not in the finale?
Well her character is dead in the Epitaph future.
I'm also seriously loving the guest cast list.
Blergh, well that was vague. I hate press releases.

ETA: Do love the guesters, though. Whiskey, Bennet, Dominic? Bring it on...

Also, is anyone else disproportionately curious about what they're going to do with Olivia's hair?

Hmm...press release does not have me excited, because it is pretty vague. The guest cast list however is nice. Amy, Summer, Reed? Sign me up. Though the press release needs more Ivy.

I will be cautiously optimistic however and say that Amy will be in the actual series finale. Wasn't Happy Town already done shooting when Amy returned for episode 11 and 12?
Reminds me of the synopsis for Buffy 5.22 which I read on the back of the VHS boxset... "Buffy makes the ultimate sacrifice". Triggers all sorts of weird emotions!

I'm gonna miss this show!
(Spoiler, I guess? Based on the Getting Closer trailer.)

Also, is anyone else disproportionately curious about what they're going to do with Olivia's hair?


Ignore the inconsistency, I imagine. She had long hair when Ambrose spoke through a non-scarred Victor, and the preview for 2x11 seems to imply Ambrose is gettin' popped while Adelle still has short hair.

I'd rather have the episode synopsis be overly vague than spoilerific. If I would have read "Buffy makes the ultimate sacrifice" before seeing "The Gift" I would have been seriously peeved. But I also think that Dark Willow on the S6 boxset gives too much away (for those watching the show for the first time) so maybe I'm just a spoilerphobe.
Yeah, I was *hoping* it'd be vague... it was the only way I could convince myself to read it. I'm desperately trying to avoid spoilers and at the same time try to feed my appetite for more. As a result, I don't think I'm doing very well with either. I really need it to be Jan 8 soon!

Anytime I see Reed's name on the guest list I'm happy.
Simon: I don't think she is. The gas could have easily killed only the dumbshows below with Whiskey just watching and then perhaps even cleaning the subsequent "mess". Maybe she didn't even do it for the first time... It's not hard to imagine that the abandoned Dollhouse could have been discovered by someone before.

But I don't see a reason why would Whiskey willingly kill herself like that. After all, wasn't she waiting for Boyd?
Ignore the inconsistency, I imagine. She had long hair when Ambrose spoke through a non-scarred Victor, and the preview for 2x11 seems to imply Ambrose is gettin' popped while Adelle still has short hair.

But the conversation with Victor-Ambrose (who wouldn't have to be aware that his original self was killed by Adelle and Boyd) could have happened later when her hair would already be longer again. If Ambrose has copy of his personality he can be imprinted into another body anytime... Or maybe the Ambrose who we know isn't even the real Ambrose (maybe Ambrose 2.0 like Clyde?). There are various possibilities...
There are workarounds, I just think it's more likely that they're not going to address it.

Whiskey gets hit with the gas. It's just up to interpretation whether it puts everyone to sleep or kills them. Mo and Jed discuss this on the commentary track. I certainly think it's more poignant if she dies.
So, when's the antepenultimate one?
Ack. Sacrifices. I really don't like the sound of that.
I know it's a Joss show, so some heartbreaking sacrifices really have to be expected. But still, I don't want any of our crew to die. Well, except for Mellie. I could certainly live with her early demise. The rest of them? Not so much.

Is there any hope left that Clyde's 3% scenario somehow comes true? I can't wait to find out.
I'm hoping Ivy lives. Not sure why, but she's my favorite not-so-important recurring character ever.
I'm avoiding reading this thread (I'm not reading any spoiler/press release threads), but it seems a good spot to pimp the return of Watch DOLLHOUSE Week, whose Series Finale Edition kicks off the day after "The Hollow Men" airs.
I second Chrisham2. I want Ivy alive.
