This Show's Lucky To Be Alive
...and back in the future, Griff is doing not much better in his efforts to control the contents of his stomach, saying he always thought it would be better to know how the whole debacle of the world they live in came to be, but he now knows he was wrong. Looking at her dad, Iris wonders if the chair hurts, and asks if it can put one person's memories into another. When Griff, who's been left alone with the two Millers, responds in the affirmative, Iris produces a gun from nowhere and shoots him dead. DUN! She then puts the weapon in her glassy father's hand, assumes a fetal position, and starts screaming her murderous little head off. I'm intrigued by your evil little twist here, dear, but I still must insist you cut out the shrieking or I'll get the damn tattoo gun out again and carve you a reminder.
The unheeding little child continues to scream her head off when we being the next act, and Zone does not even do me the solid of covering her mouth again, so I have to hear her whine about "Daddy" being angry. That's enough for Zone to make to waste Dumbshow Dad right there, but Mag urgently tells him not to do it in front of the kid, so Zone yanks DD out of there by his tie (nice touch) as Mag sobs desperately. Whiskey, however, calmly says she'll help her find Safe Haven, and sits back in the chair...
...and we flash into a memory in which LAURENCE DOMINIC HAS BEEN REVIVED! Yes, Adelle has recalled him from the Attic in the hope that he'll take her side against Rossum. Laurence, however, has other ideas, the first of which is to hold Adelle by the neck with a gun to her head and intone, "I regret to inform you, ma'am, that there's been a security breach." Heh. Adelle snaps that she sent for him, but Laurence, whose hair is rather fetchingly tousled after his long stint in cold storage, replies that he's no longer her little lap dog, and by the way, what's going on out there is pretty much exactly what he expected would eventually come of the Dollhouse's practices. He snarks that seeing the look on Topher's face was almost worth it all, and then proceeds to mock Adelle for numerous things, among them her belief that she was giving people what they needed. Speaking of things she needs, Adelle goes to pour herself a drink, but Laurence shoots the carafe of liquor out of her hand before asking if he missed anything. Adelle: "Just the vodka, thank God." She's a good woman, this Adelle. As she raises the glass to her lips with an unsteady hand, she tells Laurence that there may be a way to stop the debacle -- there's a way to block being imprinted, and it's in Caroline at the moment. Laurence: "Which one's Caroline?" Words I never thought I'd hear on this show.
