Echo’s shortcomings were perhaps most apparent in her execution. Her dialogue, for example, was often forced and unnatural. While the meta-storyline (developed by the killer) surrounding Echo may have been fascinating at first, it soon became tedious and uninteresting. As a result of this, many viewers were tuned out after a single episode or even earlier.
