Picking up a few months after the Season 1 finale, Echo is the new bride of a charismatic businessman (guest star Jamie Bamber), who is tied to an old FBI case that Paul was unable to close. Meanwhile, Dr. Saunders struggles with her discovery that she is a Doll and targets Topher. Written and directed by Joss Whedon.
The relationships inside the Dollhouse are what Whedon and his writers will be taking advantage of in Season 2 ... Though he didn't rule out doing self-contained episodes, the show would move away from an "engagement of the week" for Echo and move more toward the conspiracy-flavored character drama we saw in the last few episodes of Season 1."This year we're going to see the results of everything she [Echo] went through last year -- particularly the event [in the finale] with Alpha, where she was downloaded with all the personalities -- we're going to see the effect that's had on her and we're going to find her to be a great deal less passive and a great deal more directed in what she wants, and that of course is going to make her life a lot harder," Whedon noted
