DOLLHOUSE CAPSLOCK POST!  

THIS FINALE WAS, HOLY SHIT, WHUT?!

PAUL GOT SHOT DEAD. TOPHER SACRIFICED HIMSELF. VICTOR HAD BEEN A SOLDIER IN THE WAR FOR SOME YEARS WHILE SIERRA WAS ALL SAFE AND SOUND WITH THEIR SON. ECHO DID SOMETHING IN THE END WHERE SHE INCORPORATED PAUL'S IMPRINT? I JUST, WHUT?

ALPHA! ALPHA BEING ON THE GOOD TEAM NOW! :D :D :D HOW MUCH DID I LOVE THAT? AND HE RECREATED THE DOLLHOUSE.

I JUST HAVE TO SAY THAT I LOVE DYSTOPIAN FUTURES. I LOVE THEM. I LOVE SEEING THE WORLD ALL FUCKED UP AND HUMANITY TRYING TO REPAIR ITSELF FROM THE DAMAGE WE CAUSED. PLUS, BIG GUNS AND EXPLOSIONS AND AWESOME STUFF WHEE.

JUST, OMG NO TOPHER! D: D: D: D:

AT LEAST AFTER TEN YEARS VICTOR/SIERRA ARE STILL TOGETHER, EVEN WITH SOME COMPLICATIONS IN THEIR RELATIONSHIP. BUT THEY WILL MANAGE FOR THE SAKE OF THEIR LOVE AND THEIR CHILD.

AND THAT ENDING, I AM TRYING TO FIGURE IT OUT. ARE THEY REMAINING IN THE DOLLHOUSE? IS ECHO STILL ECHO OR DID SHE LOSE EVERYTHING AND KEPT THE ONE THING SHE NEEDED AND WANTED, BEING THE MEMORY AND IMPRINT OF PAUL INSIDE HER HEAD? IT SEEMED VERY DOLL-LIKE WITH HOW SHE WAS WALKING TO THE SLEEPING CHAMBERS.

WELL. THIS IS A JOSS WHEDON FINALE. I WOULDN'T EXPECT ANYTHING LESS.


I AM GOING TO MISS THIS SHOWWWWW! D: DAMN YOU FOX, JOSS IS GENIUS AND YOU TOOK AWAY THAT GENIUS WHEN YOU DIDN'T TRUST HIS CREATIVE VISION. FUCKERS. *SHAKES FIST*

ANYWAY - CROSSOVER TIME. SUPERNATURAL/DOLLHOUSE WITH THE CROATOAN!VERSE AND THIS FUTURE, Y/Y?

:D ALPHA!!!!!!!! BUT... D: @ TOPHER.

I'M PRETTY SURE THEY'RE JUST STAYING IN THE DOLLHOUSE FOR LIKE A YEAR OR SO, JUST IN CASE BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT TO GET MEMORY WIPED ONE LAST TIME FROM THE BLAST THING TOPHER DID.

AND I THINK SHE DID KEEP EVERYTHING + PAUL IN HER HEAD AND HER WALKING AWAY AND GOING TO THE SLEEPING CHAMBERS WAS MORE "WOW, I THINK I'M ACTUALLY HAPPY" OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT. IDK.

FFFFFFFFFF. I WISH THERE WERE MORE EPS OR SOMETHING TO FILL IN THE TIME GAPS :( LIKE HOW DID TOPHER END UP AT ROSSUM AGAIN???????? WHAT ABOUT ALPHA???????? JOSS, MAKE MOAR OF THIS IN SOME FORM PLZ :(

JOSS WHEDON IS A MAGNIFICENT BASTARD. MY BB TOPHER, NO! D:

THAT WOULD MAKE SENSE, AND THEY CAN CREATE THEIR OWN LITTLE FAMILY DOWN THERE AND ONCE THE WORLD IS RESTORED, HOWEVER LONG THAT WOULD TAKE, WOULD BE REGROUPED AT SOME POINT?

THAT WAS MY SECOND GUESS, THAT SHE'S NOW IN HER "HAPPY PLACE".

IKR? SO MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS AND HAD FOX TRUSTED JOSS FROM THE START WE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN MORE TO WORK WITH. JUST OMG I NEED MOAR!!!!

IKR!

YEAH, PROBABLY ONCE TOPSIDE IS MORE STABLE THEY'LL GO OUT THERE.

I HEARD LIKE FX WANTS/WANTED JOSS TO MAKE SOMTHING FOR THEM LIKE... IDK A MONTH OR LESS/MORE AGO? UHM. COULDN'T YOU GUYS HAVE THOUGHT OF THAT BEFORE DOLLHOUSE GOT CANCELED AND JUST MOVED IT TO FX INSTEAD OF CANCELING IT? LIKE. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY :(
Renée: DH. Ivy.rogueslayer452 on January 30th, 2010 08:01 am (UTC)
SRSLY! EITHER FX OR SCIFI JUST, I DON'T CARE, IT HAS AMAZING POTENTIAL ESP WITH S2 BEING JUST SO FUCKING AWESOME AND OTHER NETWORKS COULD DEFINITELY TREAT IT WITH RESPECT THAT FOX NEVER SHOWED IT. JUST, GODDAMMIT.

TOPHERRRRRRR OM AND WHEN HE NOTICED THE WALL OF PICTURES AND WAS LIKE, "HUH" AND THEN BAM. AWW. ;___;

AND A HAPPY ENDING FOR PRIYA/TONY YAY. AND PAUL INSIDE ECHO'S HEAD IS P. COOL ACTUALLY.

THAT WAS REALLY PRETTY. I WISH IT COULD HAVE GONE ON LONGER. THERE ARE DEF ENDS THAT DIDN'T GET TIED UP, BUT I DO LIKE THIS.
Renée: DH. Echo. Blank slate.rogueslayer452 on January 30th, 2010 07:58 am (UTC)
I WASN'T TOTALLY SHOCKED BECAUSE HELLO, IT'S JOSS WHEDON. BUT IT TUGGED AT MY HEARTSTRINGS. D:

I LOVE PRIYA/TONY, EVEN THOUGH IT WAS KINDA BITTERSWEET THEY ARE TOGETHER STILL. YOU GOTTA LOVE THAT. AND THEY HAVE A KID TOGETHER! :D THE AWESOMENESS WILL BE PASSED DOWN, DEFINITELY.

I'M SURE IF JOSS HAD MORE TIME WE COULD HAVE HAD MORE OF A NICE WRAP UP WITH EVERYTHING, BUT I'M HAPPY THAT THINGS HAPPENED THE WAY THEY DID.

OH MY GODS EVERYTHING YOU SAID. I'M STILL BAWLING AND I FINISHED WATCHING IT LIKE, HALF AN HOUR AGO. IT'S SO GOOD IT'S CRIMINAL.

SO SHOCKED WHEN PAUL DIED. I HALF EXPECTED HIM TO BE ALIVE D: ALPHA BEING GOOD! ♥

I WISH IT WAS TWO EPISODES LONG BECAUSE THERE ARE STILL SO MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS: WHERE'S SAUNDERS? WHERE'S DOMINIC? DO WE GET TO SEE THEM ONE YEAR LATER ALL HAPPY IN THEIR LITTLE HOUSES? HOW ABOUT ADELLE (THAT CLASS ACT) CLEANING UP THE WORLD AND BEING QUEEN? I STILL WANT SOME CLOSURE. FOR EVERYTHING ELSE, THERE'S FIC

LOVE THIS FINALE. LOVELOVE. WISH THERE WAS MORE. ):
Renée: Echo. I can take care of myself.rogueslayer452 on January 30th, 2010 01:48 pm (UTC)
IT REALLY REALLY IS SO FRAKKING GOOD, OMG.

I WAS SHOCKED BUT THEN I REALIZED, JOSS SHOW, SERIES FINALE, ANYTHING GOES. I'M JUST HAPPY THAT ALPHA DIDN'T DIE (WOULD HAVE BEEN A WASH ALL OVER AGAIN) BUT SEEING ALPHA BEING A GOOD GUY MADE ME GIDDY. I WANNA SEE MORE OF THE ECHO/ALPHA TEAM AS THEY FIGHT THE EVILS OF THE TECH! :D :D :D THAT SHOULD HAPPEN NEXT, 'KAY JOSS?! I WANT THIS!

IT WAS DEFINITELY A FINALE, KINDA SATISFACTORY BUT NOT EXACTLY CLOSURE BECAUSE THERE ARE STILL SOME THINGS LEFT UNEXPLAINED AND UNANSWERED. THIS HAS ME PISSED THAT IT WAS CANCELED BECAUSE GODDAMN, WE COULD HAVE HAD SO MUCH MORE AWESOME.

Did you cry? I'm still crying. Granted, I just finished watching now, but...

I think Echo stayed Echo, with all the crowd of personas inside her head. I think they're staying inside for a year to keep their personalities, and then... they have to go rebuild the world.
Renée: DH. Lonely ghosts.rogueslayer452 on January 30th, 2010 01:45 pm (UTC)
I got teary-eyed in the very end. It's just so much to absorb. And the fact that it's done, Dollhouse has now ceased to be in production, no more episodes, has me even more depressed. :(

After rewatching it, I now understood about staying underground for about a year because of the pulse Topher set off. I was just trying to gather all the information as I could from my first viewing that it's just like OMG WHUT IS HAPPENING? But it makes sense now. Also, I'm thinking Echo is content that, now with having Paul inside her head, and their plans of rebuilding the world are finally going to be taken place, she knows everything is going to be okay.

It's one bleak episode, from start to finish. I just want MOAR DOLLHOUSE! MOAR OF WHEDON'S GENIUS DAMMIT!

I guess in a sense they ended on a hopeful note - like Firefly, they'll just keep flying. But damn. Couldn't have been a more harrowing journey.

I'm sad we won't be getting more of this awesome show. No more Echo, no more Alpha. Adelle. Topher. No more Joss. :(

Fantastic episode, and well-fitting with the fantastic Caprica that followed. Great way to do a season finale.

I liked that moment where you think "Oh no, did Crazy Topher kill them all? (sigh of relief) They're waking up!".

ALPHA! ALPHA BEING ON THE GOOD TEAM NOW! :D :D :D HOW MUCH DID I LOVE THAT? AND HE RECREATED THE DOLLHOUSE.

Yeah. And I'm okay with them not explaining exactly how he changed. It would have been a little too "As You Know..."

ARE THEY REMAINING IN THE DOLLHOUSE?

They have to stay for about a year to avoid the signal. They discussed this before. I wonder if Echo will leave when the year's up, though.
Renée: Six. It's good to be a Cylon.rogueslayer452 on January 30th, 2010 04:03 pm (UTC)
It certainly was a fantastic finale. It didn't give us all the answers or resolutions that we'd hoped for, but that's asking a lot given the shortened time they had to wrap everything up (as had FOX allowed them to have the back nine episodes we would have had more time to flesh certain things out and give a proper closure).

I liked that moment where you think "Oh no, did Crazy Topher kill them all? (sigh of relief) They're waking up!".

I never thought that Topher was going to kill them all. I knew straight away that Topher was about the sacrifice himself for the greater good, which made it harder to watch, actually.

And I'm okay with them not explaining exactly how he changed. It would have been a little too "As You Know..."

Actually, I would have preferred that we did get some backstory on how Alpha reformed. I really do want to know and I don't think it would be anything boring or repetitive at all to his character. It would have been interesting, plus I want to see him and Echo being kinda buddy-buddy and fighting alongside each other in this war.

I already know that.

I will also go with yes, Echo will probably leave because she and the others have to rebuild the world, and I'm hoping that somehow Adelle and the others will return now and again and not just leave them alone for that whole year.

Yeah, but with his instability he could have flubbed it or he could have thought the greater good would be the end of self-destroying humans. I'm pretty sure the moment with them on the ground is designed to make the viewer wonder for a split second if there's going to be a happy ending or not. Tension thing. But I didn't really think that would happen.

I'm not saying backstory would be bad, if it was properly fleshed out, which they didn't have time or space to do. I'm glad they didn't spend ten minutes telling without showing. And I'm glad the development was convincing without the full backstory.

I already know that.

Sorry, I didn't read all of everyone else's threads until after I posted.

I will also go with yes, Echo will probably leave because she and the others have to rebuild the world, and I'm hoping that somehow Adelle and the others will return now and again and not just leave them alone for that whole year.

Would be nice.
