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

Did You Know?


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 »


Paul and the members of his unit commit a number of errors in the way they wear the US Army Combat Uniform: 1) The mandarin collar is never worn "up." The collar should be worn "down" with the tab folded underneath the left side of the collar and secured with Velcro. 2) Assuming the show takes place at the time of airing, the black beret is no longer worn with the Army Combat Uniform. The patrol cap should be worn instead. 3) Assuming some circumstance that would create an exception for the second error, all of the berets are worn incorrectly. Paul, as an officer, should have his rank insignia pinned and centered on the blue "flash," while the enlisted men with him should have their unit's Distinctive Unit Insignia pinned and centered on the "flash." In addition, the berets should be formed to the heads of the Soldiers wearing them and "shaved." 4) All of the Soldiers appear to be wearing pistol belts, but none of them seem to be wearing side-arms. 5) If Paul's unit is a special operations unit, he and his Soldiers should be wearing the US Army Special Forces Command Patch or the US Army Special Operations Command patch, not the patch shown. 6) At least one of the Soldiers is wearing a Velcro name-tape on the right side of his US Army Combat Uniform, but not a US Army tape on the left side over the heart. 7) The subdued American flag patch the Soldiers wear is an unauthorized variety of the patch (it should be full-color or a subdued infra-red plastic version of the flag), and is also worn too low on the right sleeve. The patch should be placed on the top flap of the pocket, not on the pocket itself. 8) As a Veteran of the Afghanistan Campaign, Paul should be wearing a combat patch under the American flag patch on his right sleeve. 9) Every single error prior to this one is irrelevant if the show actually takes place in Canada, where it would be generally illegal for US Army personnel to be wearing their uniforms in public outside of a Canadian Military facility. Under international law, this could be considered an invasion of Canada by the United States. See more »
