A lot of action without much actually happening
10 June 2017 | by Guy2026See all my reviews

Orphan Black is back for one final season, and the premiere is mostly solid but has some faults that will hopefully be resolved as the season progresses. As an episode, it is solid but forgettable, as there is a lot of action and moving around but not many events of actual, lasting significance to the plot. I would have appreciated a little bit less running around in the woods and a little bit more development of the relationships between the many new characters and organizations that showed up out of the blue in the last couple of episodes. The show-runners are holding back any and all information about these people, presumably to hook the viewer until a later date when it will be revealed. The problem is, we have not yet been given any reason to care about who and what they are, so the ploy does not work. One character claims that they hold all the answers, but the first three seasons already gave us almost all the answers, which means that these new story lines can't help but feel tacked on. I sincerely hope that the show proves me wrong by developing the relationships between these groups and tying them in to the history we already know in a natural, seamless way. Until Orphan Black does these things, this will continue to be the weakest string of episodes in the show's history. I have a moderate degree of faith that it will happen, but I hope it's soon.

So did I hate this episode? No. Was I a bit underwhelmed by it? Yeah, that would be fair to say. But, I'm still looking forward to the rest.
