...just as Adelle staggers in to accuse Boyd of sending Echo and Sierra off to rescue Victor. She yells that she ordered him to leave the situation alone, but Boyd evenly counters that he was hoping she wouldn't remember that conversation. Adelle asks what he's saying, and here's where Boyd unleashes the full force of his awesomeness: "I'm saying that you're a drunk. You're obsessed with keeping Echo under your thumb, and you'll do anything you can to keep [Keith Carradine] smiling." He adds that while in the past, they had their differences, they at least used to agree on putting their House and the Actives within first. Adelle lamely tries to tell him she's still that person, but he swiftly and strongly disagrees, and adds that he'll be the one knocking down her door should she continue on her current path. She leaves her drink on his desk: "I hope it doesn't come to that, Mr. Langton." Particularly because that whole knocking down the door thing would be awfully loud, and I don't think she's in any shape for that at the moment.
Speaking of which, Echo knocks in a door, and after pummeling the guy on the other side, she gets to work on reprogramming the chip-delivery system...
...as Tony and Priya keep moving. They run into the team leader, but even as they point their guns at each other, Tony is able to use the fact that they knew each other pre-Dollhouse to talk his way through the orders in the guy's mind, and the guy eventually shakes them off and allows Tony and Priya to pass. Unfortunately, this ends up costing the guy his life, as the team members who were pursuing Tony and Priya shoot the leader dead once they catch up to him. This looks like it's about to cause an encore performance of Tony's PTSD, but Priya tells him he's got to keep it together. "For me." They really are cute together.
Adelle decides that a steamy shower among some naked Dolls is just the thing for her hangover. I wouldn't argue with her on the merits, but when the water runs over her, it still looks like she's got the shakes. Might not be entirely due to the alcohol, though.
Echo looks like she's just about done when three guards accost her. She disposes of two of them easily, but the third manages to spin her into the chair before she gets the best of him. However, once she does, she injects herself, and the same effect we got with Tony earlier lets us know she's connected to the other minds. After a little more Echo-fu, she's able to overwhelm the voice that's giving the men the orders, resulting in her getting the soldiers by her to stand down without further conflict. However, this somehow leads Tony to conclude that Echo is down, so he decides to face the music by stepping out into view of the four soldiers that have him and Priya bottled up. They all shoot in unison, but miss, which seems like a cheap device even if it was a last-second course correction -- but the point is that "Echo changed their marching orders," as Tony puts it. Priya wonders what she told them to do, but the woman herself appears to answer that question: "Go home." Maybe lacking a certain flair, but I could see the value in not issuing unclear orders to a bunch of jacked-up guys with really big guns.
