Storyline

Rachel, having apprehended Sarah, is able to bring her back to the Dyad headquarters. There, Rachel is able to get Sarah in touch with most of those adults in her life that matter, including Mrs. S., Felix, Art, Alison and Cosima. To Sarah's amazement, they all encourage her to join Rachel under her lead of the project. Regardless of what she may tell her loved ones, Sarah is determined to escape Rachel's clutches and run off with Kira for good, she having to decide who she can and cannot trust under the circumstances. Her task may be more difficult as she learns that one of Rachel's most valued subjects would be Kira, who she has placed under tight surveillance to ensure that Sarah cannot run off with her. Ferdinand and Kira in particular may affect Sarah's plans. Meanwhile, Scott and Hell Wizard are able to flush MK out, she who may prove useful in her cyber-abilities beyond she getting to know and trust her sisters. Alison and Donnie/Helena have no idea where the other(s) is/are. ... Written by Huggo

A tense, emotional, and tightly written instalment gets the season rolling after a stagnant premiere.

In a way, I wish that they had broadcast the first two episodes together, because the first one did not impress me at all. I found that it had way too much running around in the woods and not nearly enough character or plot. Last week's instalment left me thoroughly underwhelmed, which is why it was such a pleasant surprise when this one turned out to be one of the show's best.

This episode contains all the elements that have worked well for Orphan Black in the past, such as betrayals, secrets, reveals, clones pretending to be other clones, and most of all steadily rising tension that ends in a violent climax. All the best episodes of the show have had some of these elements, and this one had them all. It also advances the plot significantly and sets the final season off to a roll, something which the premiere failed to do.

Even with the tense action-packed main plot of the episode, we also managed to squeeze in a resolution to the P.T. Westmorland cliffhanger from last season. While I still find the idea of a 170 year old man inherently ridiculous, I liked the actor a lot and thought the scene was well written. However, one thing confused me. He says that he created the clones, but I thought that Ethan and Rachel Duncan created them. Maybe they were working for him, but at the moment the whole situation seems a little muddled and confused. I'm hoping for some clarification down the line.

This episode managed to renew my confidence in Orphan Black. I'm now really looking forward to the remaining 8 episodes. I hope they can pull together a satisfying conclusion to it all.
