Storyline

Now that she has Kira and her harvested bone marrow, Rachel is holding all the cards. She replaces Delphine with a Dr. Nealon as the facility and thus Cosima's chief physician, not even letting Delphine say goodbye before she is escorted out of the facility. As such, Rachel can use Cosima and Kira as a bargaining chip, which works as Sarah feels she has no other option but to surrender herself to Dyad, although Sarah still stays as defiant as ever under the circumstances. However, some will do anything, even risk their own life, to stop whatever Rachel's grand plan. And on the outside, Mrs. S and Felix, with a little help, believe they may have an inside track on what's happening within the Dyad facility. Sarah ultimately has to decide whether to trust that insider and the promise made. And after the fire at the Johanssen farm, those involved are able to escape they hope to a better life. Helena hopes to reunite with Sarah and Kira, but what happens may be beyond her comprehension. ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

Kristian Bruun, Millie Davis, and Drew Davis appear in the ending credits even though they were not featured in the episode. This is because a four-minute scene between the Hendrix family had been filmed, but it had to be cut due to time constraints. This scene, however, appears in the special features on the Orphan Black (2013) season two DVD set. See more »

Goofs

As Helena has bad motor abilities and isn't used to dance, she does awkward moves and misses the beat when the clone sisters and Felix dance at his loft. In contrast, Helena dances amazingly well at the underground club owned by Olivier in Orphan Black: Parts Developed in an Unusual Manner, with Olivier's tail in her hand, which she cut off earlier.

Moves at a cracking pace but are there gaps in the narrative?
23 December 2018 | by DVD_ConnoisseurSee all my reviews

Without a shadow of a doubt, "By Means Which..." is a strong episode. However, it moves at such a cracking pace, there are jumps in the narrative that the viewer has to fill themselves.

This season finale leaves the viewer dangling. With new questions raised and at least one of the main characters facing an unknown fate, I look forward to devouring the third season.
