Since Michonne's hallucination positions her as the hitchhiker, perhaps it's suggesting a moment in time that haunts her. On season nine, episode six, Michonne told Magna that they have all done terrible things.
And that's most likely what AMC wants. Negan's still a big part of "The Walking Dead" after all. He recently killed the Whisperer leader under Carol's orders and the show has already been trying to get fans to empathize more with Negan by referencing the controversial season seven premiere and bringing up Negan's wife. If Negan's going to be sticking around, AMC will want to make sure fans can finally get behind the character in the way they have fallen in love with Rick, Daryl, and Carol, no matter some of his past transgressions.
And considering the high alert status, it didn't make sense that Higgins and Magnum were able to engage in a gunfight with Ian without anyone noticing. Also, wouldn't have there been security around Jing since he was the cause of the alert in the first place? He was there in his room with no protection whatsoever.
Jessica was proud of her son in a way we haven't seen before, and it was due to her comprehension of what it is he does. She also doesn't mind jumping in and aiding in investigations in any way she can provide, too.
Malcolm: I'm just confused, lost, scared. You have no idea what these visits do to me, what you did to me. Martin: My boy, I made you.Malcolm: You destroyed me.Martin: Malcolm, what are you doing?Malcolm: I came to tell you face to face--Martin: Tell me what?Malcolm: That you're a crazy, old man, a sick lunatic, living in a delusion. We never had a relationship because none of this is real. I never loved you, and you'll never see me again.
Dr. Evans: They can go on Tonyevans.org. You can find out all of our resources, all of our programming. We have a training center now. People can learn about what this kingdom life is all about comprehensively. Tonyevans.org.
Lots of things to nitpick.It was a mistake and probably the biggest error of the series to only have the new suit at the very end of the finale. It came across gimmicky to have the birth/debut/reveal/whatever of Daredevil and Kingpin to happen simultaneously, which is what they were going for. They should have had at least one full episode of him with the suit.
With the casino causing problems, Rachel is threatened by a cartel member. She blames Marty for what happened. When Marty denies it, Rachel thinks his wife did it and realizes that Wendy is behind the entire plan. Marty begs Rachel for help. Later on, Marty finds out Wendy sent Nelson after Rachel, and he lets his wife know that Ruth has now rerouted the funds in the casino, thus causing further problems. He clarifies that if Omar Navarro is extradited to Mexico, it will not matter if they do not have money.
The group falls back into the chair room, and Iris is given a tattoo on her back with of her name. It is what the actuals call a "birthmark". It is used to identify the actuals from the imprinted. The group then look at the window to see Dr. Saunders is outside. The group run down to interrogate her, but it is clear that she has regressed to her Active self, Whiskey. The group are about to execute her, believing she killed Lyn. However, she says she can lead them to Safe Haven, which is rumored among actuals to be a sanctuary from the imprinted and the mind-wiping technology. Whiskey states that the memories in the tablet will lead them there. In another flashback scene Victor, who has been imprinted with Clive Ambrose, head of the Rossum Corporation, is informing them they are going to sell actives. For a nine-figure sum, a person can have immortality, similar to that of the episode "Haunted." Mr. Ambrose informs Adelle DeWitt that it would be all legal within a year as their services to high-ranking officials would push this legislation through. DeWitt believes it is morally wrong, but Mr. Ambrose states they have a choice to either join them or die; meanwhile, his mind is currently in ten other dolls, making the same ultimatum to the leaders of ten other Dollhouse branches.
Whiskey, now awake, states that something has to go into the chair and points to the hard drive slot. Mag asks Whiskey what needs to go in there. Whiskey says she doesn't remember...yet. Whiskey is then given another memory. In this flashback, Victor and Sierra have been given their real souls back - their identities as Anthony Ceccoli and Priya Tsetsang, respectively - and they discuss what is to come. Anthony shows Priya a hidden cabinet filled with more hard drives - copies of all their personalities including Caroline's, just in case. (As a side note, Priya is shown to have the first "birthmark".) In 2019, Mag, Zone, Iris and Whiskey are all that are left and they go find the hard drives. Zone decides to give Iris a gun to protect herself. The group then go back to the chair room to upload Caroline's mind into Whiskey so they can find Safe Haven. However Iris turns her gun on them saying, she does not know how she ended up in a child's body but she wants out. She says she will take Mag's body and then imprint Whiskey with Caroline and get to Safe Haven herself. She tries to fire the gun at Zone only to discover it unloaded, and Zone quickly grabs Iris and puts her into the chair. Zone figured out Iris wasn't who she appeared when he executed her "father"; he had a birthmark but his name was not Mr. Miller, as Iris claimed.
Mag activates the tablet and another flashback occurs. The Dollhouse has now isolated itself from the increasing anarchy in the outside world and Adelle looks on as her former Actives pray. The dolls have had their real identities restored to them, in defiance of the Rossum Corporation. Topher - who by now has been stricken by mental illness and is holed up in a sleeping pod - then calls for Adelle and in a short conversation it is revealed that in an instant an army was created. A phone call had been made to everyone, and those who picked up the phone were imprinted, similar to the way Echo was wiped in "Gray Hour." An insane and guilt-wracked Topher now realizes that his creation of waves for imprinting is to blame for the unfolding tragedy outside. Adelle tries desperately to comfort him, but he succumbs to a fit, mumbling "I know what I know" repeatedly and rocking back and forth. Adelle cradles him in her arms, until a loud disturbance is heard off camera.
Joss Whedon said about the episode: "The decision had to do with the studio saying, 'We need another episode for our package, and we can't afford one. Can you do a clip show? Can we show the unaired pilot?' I'm like, 'No, you can't. It wouldn't make any sense. Besides, we cannibalized it for parts. Most of it's in other episodes.' And they were like, 'Well, we really have to have 13 for foreign.' And I said, 'I'll tell you what. I'll shoot a post-apocalyptic thriller that's all on our sets in six days with a cast of four other people, then we'll pepper it with different bits from our regular cast, and we can do it all during the schedule. It'll cost you half. I can do this.' And I was so in love with the idea that I just came up with off the top of my head, and that's what it turned into. It's one of the best episodes we've ever made." 
Rocco Passionino, Dollhouse's visual effects supervisor, said about the episode: "The last episode is very interesting. The intention of that episode is bizarre and it's done for half the price of what a normal show is done. They contained their resources and the environments to not make it as expansive as a normal show. For us, I think the concept is phenomenal. I would have hoped that they could have brought the concept in earlier but it opens up everything and allows us to run away with the fact that technology has done more than they intended it to."
Lucifer is deposited on the roof by Amenadiel. Lucifer asks, "Can we not tell anyone you just carried me in your arms like a baby?" Amenadiel wants to know what Lucifer was trying to accomplish. Lucifer replies, "...a good death? Or at least a nice and messy one. But then you had to come and ruin everything, like always. Why'd you swoop in and stop it? Wouldn't let someone else send me to Hell, is that it? Well, guess what, brother, you don't need to kill me, because I'm done here. I've had my fun on Earth, and... there's no reason for me to stay anymore. You win. I'll go willingly. Please, just... take me back to Hell." Amenadiel refuses, having finally realized Lucifer is right and that people have died because of what he did to get his brother to go back to Hell.
Dan calls Chloe and says that he can't find any evidence tying Malcolm to the murders. Chloe tells Dan what Mel said, and Dan suggests that there is a bar where there is a guy who owes Malcolm money. Once Dan hangs up, he sees Lucifer and Amenadiel in his office. Amenadiel says that they need some information, giving him what they have, Dan makes the connection between Tommy and a beer, and Lucifer uses his mojo to make Dan say that he wants to redeem himself by taking down Malcolm. Dan tells them that a drug dealer named Tommy Campolongo who works out of an old brewery. He tells them to stay put, but Amenadiel flies them out when Dan looks away. Dan calls Chloe and tells her about Tommy, and she heads over.
A paper airplane lands at Malcolm's feet and Chloe runs off. Lucifer enters and tells Malcolm to give him the gun. Malcolm refuses, and Lucifer asks him what he desires. He asks if Malcolm really wants to kill Chloe with his second chance, and figures that he wants to live. Malcolm says that he wants to live more than almost anything, and shoots Lucifer in the gut. As Chloe watches, Lucifer collapses and Malcolm says, "You feel that? That's what it's like to die, my man. I know, 'cause I've done it. And what I want, more than anything... is for you to feel that pain. To go through what I did. Because we both know where you're going to." He takes out the Pentecostal Coin and holds it just out of Lucifer's reach, and says that he'll be sending Chloe right behind him. Malcolm then goes to find Chloe, while Lucifer talks to his Dad, "Dad... I need a favor. I'll be the son You always wanted me to be. I'll do as You ask. Go where You want me to. In exchange, all I ask is that You protect Chloe." With that, he dies and finds himself back in Hell. He walks through the corridors to a room, and realizes that it's open. Lucifer insists that it isn't possible... and resurrects back in the hangar. Eyes glowing red, he goes looking for Malcolm. 781b155fdc
