Storyline

Kira is rushed to hospital after having been struck by a car. Miraculously, she is unhurt and is soon home. Alison has moved in with Felix while she looks for a place to live. When she returns to her home, she finds her husband and their friends waiting for her. In Minnesota, Cosima is pleased to learn that Kira is well but not so pleased when she learns what Delphine has been up to. Art gives Beth one last chance to tell him what is going on. He finally gets to see the security footage from the train station. Dr. Leekie arrives but isn't easily fooled. He knows about Sarah through the information he received from Delphine and wants to offer her a deal. What he tells her isn't quite what she was expecting. When Sarah returns to Mrs S.'s house, she has something of a surprise waiting for her. Written by garykmcd

Now that's more like it! Great penultimate episode, best one so far.
23 June 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

After last week's episode, I thought they were going to kill Kira as a catalyst between Helena and Sarah. It would have been a cheap move, and wouldn't have had the gut punch they would have been expecting. Luckily, they didn't go down that route. Also, they don't just save Kira's life in some unbelievable way, they set it up as a plot thread. I thought that it was overall a really great way to handle it.

After that, the episode just continues to get better and better. Alison is confronted about her recent behavior in an intervention style meeting, and she ends up having a rant that reminded me a lot of Tyrion's trial from Game Of Thrones. It was a great performance moment from Tatiana Maslany.

Speaking of which, the situation between Cosima and Delphine reaches a head. This was a painful scene, but I still think that this is the weakest story thread overall. The police finally put the pieces together. Tensions between Sarah, Helena, and the warring religious and scientific organizations continue to rise. It looks like everything is coming to a head next episode.
