BUT... what if Boyd isn't an "evil mastermind" after all, a twist within a twist.

So much for that theory! He's just bug-nuts!
I had a problem with this show from the very beginning precisely because Joss Whedon did such a good job of making the Dollhouse organization so very wrong. Now, surprisingly, I find myself looking forward to someday watching the entire series a second time start to finish at my own pace (now that I know what's coming), looking for clues and whatnot laid along the way I may have missed the first time.
This week: We jump 10 years into the future!
So that’s it: The End.
Here’s what I thought the deal was. I thought there was going to be one episode set 10 years in the future to cap the series off, and that that episode was to air January 23. Then the telethon for Haiti relief pushed it off to January 29. (It wouldn’t have made any difference, anyway, because our satellite went out that week and we didn’t have a replacement by the 22nd, pre-empted or not.) But we watched Friday’s episode last night and we definitely missed something! No big deal. We had already decided to watch this series again (one of these years) on DVD, even before Matt pointed out that the unaired pilot addresses the “moral ambiguity/immorality of the Dollhouse from the get-go.”
Oh, well… what’s past is past. I’m looking to the future. Someone posted that Whedon’s next project is already in the works and would be announced after Dollhouse came to an end. Any word on what that is going to be?

There aren't any real details yet, but the word going around the 'net is that Joss has been meeting with executives from the FX network.
Why, oh why, did they choose to not air this episode (or one very like it)? Tracy (who paid much closer attention to those early episodes than I did) tells me several scenes (one in particular) contradict what was eventually aired, but nevertheless they could have worked a lot of this into a better first (and second and third) episode than the one actually aired, or better yet, written those early episodes to more closely follow the pilot. If they had done so, I could have enjoyed the premise from the very first episode, rather than waiting ¾ of the first season for the show to win me over.
