Well, we might see more range if she'd stop being cast as crazy people and robots.

Excellent episode. Really enjoyed Victor as Topher, Summer's bizarre nerdiness. She actually made the scenes with Topher in them, not cringeworthy. Wish she'd been on the show from the beginning.

Looking forward to the watching the show's las episodes. Looks like they're going out right.

Re: DOLLHOUSE: ep2x5-Public Eye & ep2x6-The Left Hand Review-Grade-SPO

I'm rather fond of her work, but I can see what people are saying, several of her recent roles had some sort of bizarreness to it. I think this one has somewhat of a more realistic reason to it, between the fact she's seemingly a nerd (then again maybe that's just an act), seeing Echo/Caroline clearly sent her over the edge (if there's any truth what so ever to her memory/the flashback, who can blame her), along with some other issues (she talks to herself as if there were different persona's arguing) and finally it's hinted that she's not working for the Dollhouse under the most voluntarily of positions/conditions.

With that said, I'm looking forward to her other appearance (there's only one other confirmed, and probably would have been expanded if there had been a season three), and the final set of episodes.

Has Summer Glau ever portrayed a character who wasn't weird in the head? (The Cameronator is weird in the head by human standards.)

Absolutely brilliant.

I will add to Joe Washington's bit about the Epitaph One future. Topher and Bennent did a remote imprint, when sent through a phone that is the tech that destroys the world.

Also Victor as Topher was creepy amazing.
Enver Gjokaj did a real good job of mimicking what Fran Kranz has done with Topher.

In season one and two of The Unit (CBS military drama that went for four seasons) she played the girlfriend of a minor character. She wasn't crazy in any particular way (although she did some crazy things) but the show didn't really highlight any particular acting abilities on her part due to the cookie-cutter writing. But that is probably Summer Glau's most "normal" role, at least that I've seen her in.

she was clinically insane in The 4400 as well. loved these last 3 episodes. kind of cool seeing Wes and Faith share the same screen again, even though it wasn't as them. Hopefully from here on out and until the end that its all mythos episodes. Every friday will be like a new Dollhouse TV movie each week.

I really loved these episodes. Best part by far was Victor/Topher. I like Victor's Topher better than Topher's Topher.

These were pretty good episodes. I absolutely did NOT see Wesley being a Doll coming at ALL. That was an excellent twist. River was a really interesting new character, the two sides of cute girl with a crush and evil sadistic schizo obsessive-compulsive. Great stuff.

These were the best two episodes of the show's run. I love how it really gets cracking right when it gets canceled.

Those two episodes worked really well as one block. I enjoyed Victor's Topher as much as everyone else.

Yeah, they did actually, I'm almost curious if that is why they were aired in a single block, considering the way part one ends, and part two begins.

Above Average for the two episode from me.

But man, what do people see in Summer Glau? Not acting ability, that's for sure...
