Hey there, Clone Club! What a finale, am I right? Well, it was action-packed, to say the least, and we don’t know if everyone’s going to live to see much of Season 5. Still, with the official news that Orphan Black’s fifth season will be its last, it’s a good episode to begin the beginning of the end.
What do I mean? Read on, sestras. Spoilers for Season 4 and the finale below!
This week’s episode is all about failure. After last week’s action-packed, info-dump-y episode, now we’re given a chance to let it sink in and see what all of these consequences mean for our beloved Clone Club, et al. I’m not sure it can get much lower than this.
Spoilers for this week and trigger warning for suicide after the jump.
Man, just when I thought things were looking up for everyone, Orphan Black reminds me that no one is safe and nothing is okay. Take note, Game of Thrones: this is how that concept works without all that unnecessary misogyny.
Trigger warning for a mention of suicide and spoilers for this week after the jump!
I’ve been behind on my Orphan Black-watching, and all I could remember from last season was a confusing blur and some vague plot points. It was, therefore, a pleasure to sit down and watch the first four episodes of this season in one fell swoop this week, ending with Thursday night’s “From Instinct to Rational Control”. The storytelling this season has been on point and I’m excited to see where we go from here.
This year’s finale felt a little more toned-down than the finales of seasons past. The threats have piled up this season, and in this episode they all fall down like dominoes, giving us one mini-finale after another. After the sounds of the technologically superb clone dinner party faded away, we’re left with a number of revelations. Spoilers after the jump!
