If you haven't watched it yet or care about spoilers, go away.
Sadly, I had seen rumors on the web saying that Tudyk was Alpha, but even with that knowledge, I loved last night's episode. I was able to "suspend my knowledge" for a while and, if I hadn't seen those rumors, I would have been taken completely by surprise. Tudyk's agoraphobic environmental engineer was pitch perfect and would have served as a great mask for his true personality. And his "medicinal carrots?" Hilarious!
Dollhouse has really grown on me over the past couple of months. After the first few episodes, I was kind of like "take it or leave it." I'd keep watching it only in hopes that it'd get better. Now it has. I love it. FOX had better not cancel this one. I want to see where Joss Whedon will take us next.
