If two weeks ago was an Alison-centric episode, and last week was mostly-Sarah-plus-everyone-else, Cophine fans can rejoice this week. “Ease for Idle Millionaires” showcases Cosima working out just what’s going on behind the scenes at Camp Revival, and the answers are horrifying. The last few seasons of Orphan Black have been too complex for its own good; it’s hard for the un-obsessive viewer to keep track of all the plot threads. Luckily, this episode stays fairly straightforward in its reveal of P.T. Westmoreland’s nefarious plans, allowing more time to consider what they mean for Clone Club.

Exciting and terrifying as Orphan Black tends to be, it was a bit of a disappointment for me this week when Orphan Black‘s fourth episode this season ended up being… a little boring? The season started off with Sarah fighting for her very survival on a strange island, followed by a problematic death and a shocking twist, and was topped off nicely by a screamingly suspenseful Alison-centric episode. Yet “Let the Children and Childbearers Toil” wasn’t focused on any particular clone and, in fact, ended up talking a lot about characters I didn’t particularly care about.
