Future Alexis Appearances on Dollhouse

If I'm interpreting this FOX network news release correctly, Alexis Denisof will be appearing in the following Dollhouse Episodes [MINOR SPOILERS]:
Friday, October 30, 2009 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) "The Public Eye (Part 1 of 2)" When Senator Perrin (guest star Alexis Denisof) makes his stand against the Rossum Corporation, Echo (Eliza Dushku) attempts to stop his expos [sic]. Adelle (Olivia Williams) and Topher (Fran Kranz) travel to the Washington, DC, Dollhouse where they meet its genius programmer, Bennett Halverson (Summer Glau), a woman with a mysterious past connection to Echo.

Friday, November 6, 2009 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) - "The Left Hand (Part 2 of 2)" Echo and Bennett have a shocking reunion as Adelle goes head-to-head with the ruthless leader of the Washington, DC, Dollhouse (guest star Ray Wise). Topher sees double when he must involve Victor (Enver Gjokaj) in his espionage. Perrin finds a surprising witness to testify against the Rossum Corporation, but find he may be living in a house of cards.

I'm not sure if Alexis will appear in this episode:
Friday, November 13, 2009 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) - “Meet Jane Doe". After attempting to stop Perrin from exposing the Dollhouse, Echo finds herself in the world-at-large as she struggles to control her multiple memory downloads. Topher discovers the dangers of science that will have devastating effects on the future, while Adelle engages in a power struggle with Harding (guest star Keith Carradine).
Otherwise, I'm assuming that if his character isn't mentioned in an episode description, then Alexis probably won't be appearing.

Of course a lot of people are wondering what the "house of cards" means in the November 6 description. Is Cindy Perrin a doll? Is Senator Perrin a doll? Will his accountant inform him he has majority shareholder interest in Rossum Corporation? Will his chief of staff tell him that Rossum Corporation is the largest contributor to his political campaign? Does someone have a whole bunch of incriminating photos of Senator Perrin? I hope we'll see more appearances from Alexis, but it's hard to predict since FOX only seems to be committed to airing 13 episodes. Even if more episodes are ordered, I'm not sure what the producers have planned for his character.

In the meantime, we'll share the love with Alexis while we can.

Update October 22, 2009: Not so fast. Dollhouse will be shelved for network sweeps until December. See my update here.
