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!
The title of this episode seemed like the episode would get into some serious genetics shop talk, but fortunately, last night’s Orphan Black wasn’t big on the body horror at all. In fact, we seem to be moving forward on several plot points in several different ways.
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!
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!
