Some new photos showcase an upcoming episode of Joss Whedon's Dollhouse in which Matt Keeslar, aka The Middleman, hires Eliza Dushku's mindwiped shell. Unfortunately, Keeslar's not in his milk-drinking, wisdom-expounding mode. Spoilers and gallery below.
Keeslar plays Richard Connell, an outdoorsman who hires Echo (Dushku) to be his companion on a little wilderness getaway. Unfortuantely, he's not just looking for a little nookie in the woods, and someone to hold his ammo while he shoots animals. Rather, he wants a more stimulating target to hunt. It's like Hard Target, only with a mindwiped babe. We reviewed some pages from the script for this episode a while back, and it sounds like Keeslar and Dushku have mindblowing sex, and we get to see them being all afterglowy in bed together. And then Keeslar suddenly kicks her out of bed and gives her a slight head start before he comes after her, guns blazing. The cad! I can just imagine what the Middleman would say about such behavior.
Here's the official description for the episode:
Echo is imprinted to be the female counterpart to an avid outdoorsman and quickly learns how the hunter becomes the hunted during her wilderness adventure. Agent Ballard receives a clue to Echo’s real identity, encouraging him to continue his investigation, while flashbacks reveal the tragic events at the Dollhouse that led to Boyd’s arrival and Dr. Saunders’ scars.
