BREAKING NEWS: "Dollhouse" is safe for at least half a season.

Fox ordered 13 episodes of "Dollhouse" up front. This is a fairly standard half-season order, and if the show is successful they'd generally pick up the "Back 9" to bring the season up to a standard 22 episodes. Despite this, however, Fox has been known to screw with shows before - "Firefly" for instance filmed 13 episodes, but only 10 were on the air. It's not uncommon for a show to be performing so badly that the network ditches it before it bleeds any more ratings from the time slot.

The series - and possibly the season - enters its endgame phase. Team Connor abandon their very nice rental home and head for a new safehouse location. Sarah splits them up in to two groups - her and John, and Reese and Cameron, neither of whom she trusts anymore.

Meanwhile, John Henry goes all bat-guano and starts hurting Savannah, the daughter of Shirley Manson from Garbage. One of the techs is on hand to shut him down, though.
