Season two of The Dollhouse is about to begin and there are some new faces we will get to see this year.
Know best from Firefly and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles.
Appearing as: Bennett
Bennett is a Dollhouse employee who shares a past with Echo.
I love that Bennett will not be a doll even though Summer would make a great one. I think her as a doll would run too close to River. Eric hopes that Bennett is a higher up of Adelle that sparks a rivalry. I wonder if Bennett is actually Caroline’s friend from college who infiltrated the Dollhouse many years ago and now finally found her and secretly hopes to free her.
Know best from Angel and Buffy as Wesley Wyndam-Pryce, and Sandy Rivers in How I Met Your Mother
Appearing as: Daniel Perrin
Daniel is a U.S. senator leading a witch hunt to track down the Dollhouse. I like that Daniel will be introduced to the audience in the first episode of season 2. I wonder if his quest to find the Dollhouse will mirror Ballards in the first season but be ramped up due to his increased access and power. We should expect for him to run into problems from some of his coworkers due to the Dollhouses influences over some senators and congressmen. I suspect that he is the first of Joss' three antagonist for season 2.
Known best from Battlestar Galactica as Captain Lee 'Apollo' Adama
Appearing as: Martin Klar
Martin is a wealthy charismatic British businessmen who will marry Echo in the first episode of season 2 as part of an engagement. This marriage will be arranged by Ballard who decides uses the Dollhouse and it's resources to solve an old open case from when he was an FBI agent. I wonder if Ballard will be able to keep his cool this time since his hot hotheadedness is probably what blew his chances of solving the crime on his first go around.
Known best from Battlestar Galactica as Colonel Saul Tigh and as Myka’s father in Warehouse 13
Appearing as: Bradley Karrens
Bradley will turn to the Dollhouse for help with preventing a psychotic family member from going on a killing spree. He will appear in the second episode titled Belle Chose. I suspect Bradley is also a Dollhouse shareholder.
Known best from Dexter as Special Agent Frank Lundy
Appearing as: Matthew Harding
Matthew is a nemesis of Adelle Dewitt who will stir up trouble this season. I don’t think he is the “Big Baddie” that Joss keeps dropping in conversation but he may be the red herring to the “Big Baddie”. Even if he isn't he will still be a nice pain in Adelle’s side and I’m hoping he is someone directly from Rossum. I suspect that Matthew is the second antagonist for season 2.
Miracle Laurie Returns
We will also get to see the return of November in the third episode of season 2. Adelle will pay her a visit. I wonder if this visit will be to help Echo out with her maternal imprint. What would be even cooler is if Adelle’s visit is due to the sleeper programming that I suspect is still rattling on around in Novembers’ unconsciousness like a ticking floral time bomb.
The one left out so far is the third antagonist. Joss likes to run his antagonists in threes. In season one we had Ballard, Dominic, and for the big baddie Alpha. Part of me hopes that Summer's character will be the big baddie and the third antagonist for season two.
