    Interesting ending with the male clones, I especially loved the clone at the end who was a male version of Helena! It should be fun next season if they ever meet!

    So they're making an the big secret. Now what? I need to know. If cosima dies I am done. So much random shi. In this finale. Ugh. Who made that kid in the end? She said she adopted her? Okayyyy. Too many questions. But still hooked! And OMG that dance scene lol. Was epic.
  • Nice dance scene.

    This episode could never stand on its own. Again the writers have lost their way. I can forgive them because overall Orphan Black is so intriguing. I just hope this is not going to be a regular thing. Four great episodes then one crazy who knows what is going on episode. We've got Mrs. S ordering car bombs. Kira sending her mother bizareland messages via Cosima's science lesson. Duncan committing suicide, for some unknown reason. Paul has suddenly rejoined the military. Cal calmly returns with all kinds of info, that he can only get. Mirim is a mother foremost of a Sarah clone that wears a leg brace. Rachel gets her eye poked-out. Art is weary and uninvested in whole crazy mess. Manslaughtering Allison is behaving like shy school girl. What the hell happened? This episode was so off-track the writers need to go back to their roots and get a clear vision. The only interesting material in this episode is that Mark is a clone. I knew there was something more to this guy. So now Gracie is married to a clone and having a clone and her father's baby. Weird, but at least this is in accord with the original thread of the story. Since Gracie thinks clones are the work satin. Not to mention Helena, a force of nature, being abducted into the military with barely a fight. Hopefully the writers will get back on track for season three. Still a fan of the show, not of this messy and off kilter episode. I know the writers can do way better.moreless
