Instead, we cut straight to Boyd and Adelle leading the captured Bennett into the L.A. Dollhouse, wherein Bennett amusingly chooses to focus on the fact that Adelle used the corporate jet in her nefarious plan, prompting Adelle to wittily reply that she's sure to be kicking herself when bonus time rolls around. Hee, but Bennett's faux-sunny reply of "I'm sure you'll be dead by then" is no slouch of a line either. Taking in the atrium, Bennett notes that the Actives are allowed rather complete run of the place, "like free-range chickens. We keep ours more like veal." Ick, on more than one level, but that could go far to explain how they busted November (now that she's a Doll again, the name makes the most sense) out. They reach the lab, and Topher hilariously tries to give Bennett an enthusiastic greeting, but the fact that she literally recoils from him probably suggests seeing him isn't quite adequate compensation for being punched in the face and then kidnapped, although she does compliment his work in sabotaging her chair. Adelle then announces that Topher will explain why they've gone to such lengths "to procure [her] services." Bennett is like, not so much, and proceeds to express her wish to file a formal complaint, to which Adelle responds that, as she's well aware, she's been abducted, and she can be treated as a guest or a prisoner...at which point she hilariously trails off, because the way Topher is wildly gesticulating behind Bennett would make a seizure victim seem stable by comparison. Anyway, the point of Topher's flailing about is that he'd like to be left alone with Bennett so he can show her the lab, and he then makes a joke about how she showed him hers that even he seems to know as he's saying it is completely inadvisable, and Bennett's serious grimace confirms that, as does Adelle's tortured eye-roll. Hee. We stay with Adelle and Boyd, with the latter asking how long she thinks it'll be before Rossum tracks Bennett to their location. Adelle thinks it'll be sooner rather than later, and then seeing Ballard lead November into the atrium, sighs about the "damn romantic fools" she's surrounded by. Boyd calmly defends his buddy, saying he couldn't just leave her there, and Adelle sighs that she supposes not before telling him that they'll be going into full lockdown mode. Considering what a joke Alpha has shown that to be, I don't know why they even bother anymore.
