...and uses the keycard to accost Adelle in her office. Adelle doesn't seem particularly surprised to see her, but that could be due to her being about three-quarters in the bag here, and she tells Echo that Ballard has been moved to a more secure location -- "one way your illicit keycard will be of no use." She smugly, if unsteadily, asks if Echo really thinks anything happens in the House without her knowledge, but Echo isn't afraid to turn that around, pointing out that it does seem like quite a bit does get past her, and Adelle is forced to drop the bravado and agree as she admits that Ballard and Boyd keeping the truth about her, she can see, but Topher? "He could barely keep a belch to himself." Especially if he's still got his Drawer Of Inappropriate Starches.

Of course, it's possible this is all a fraternity prank, in which case it'd probably be wise to haul Kiki out from the depths of his brain.

"Victor'"s still got the bag over his head and is being sped away in a van, but it turns out part of the Dollhouse's protocols is to keep a released Active's biolinks, well, active for ninety days, so Topher has become aware that in the middle of the previous night, "Victor"'s readings went dead, and he can't even locate his GPS signal. Boyd says he'll get a van to bring him in for a diagnostic, but Topher's like, you're not getting it -- the last readings indicate that "Victor" was fighting for his life. Boyd's like, I'm on my way...
