Despite not knowing where she's gone or why she's back, Sarah reconnects with MK, who is able to provide some information as to the fact that the Neolutionists under Evie Cho see especially Sarah, but also Alison and Cosima, as threats to the project. As such, Sarah asks MK for one more favor in getting her in touch with Susan Duncan, who may now be more of an ally in finding a cure for Cosima. However Rachel being aligned with Susan may still be an issue. In the process, Cosima believes she may have found at least a starting point for their future research, which involves a reluctant Sarah. Rachel, in the meantime, has been seeing visions, including of swans, which she believes are not hallucinations but something implanted into her eye. Meanwhile, Mrs. S is still determined to get some revenge for her mother's murder, and to discover what Evie Cho's end game is so that she can help find some peace for the sisters.

Did You Know?


The church theatre group rehearses Jesus Christ Superstar, with Alison (Tatiana Maslany) playing Judas. The key plot of this musical is that Judas become conflicted about being Jesus's disciple, and promises the priests that he will help them capture Jesus (although insisting that Jesus would approve if he knew the motives). The high priest demands that Judas reveal the location of Jesus, and Judas reveals that on Thursday night Jesus will be at Gethsemane.

Coincidentally, this episode first aired in the US on a Thursday night. See more »

Alison takes centre stage in another solid episode.
2 June 2016 | by Guy2026See all my reviews

This was the first episode in a while where Alison's story was used not for comic relief, but actually as the dramatic centre of the story. There were certainly comedic moments, but it mostly consisted of tension. Towards the end of this episode, there was some splicing of the comedy and tension in editing that I found slightly jarring. This show is normally very good at balancing those elements, but there were a couple of moments in this episode that did not work for me personally in that respect.

Sarah and Cosima negotiate with Rachel and Susan. This mostly consists of clone Skype calls, and sets up things for the next couple episodes. Rachel's swan visions are still a mystery, and one that I hope we see some answer to relatively soon.

This episode was good. It provided tension in the moment and set up some story lines for next week that seem neat. Aside from one big thing, this was not at all a pivotal episode, but it did just fine.
