      Oh dearest Paul, I love this!

      This episode went by fast! I'm glad we got to see all three, Cosima, Allison and Sarah this time... I'm wondering what will happen in the next episode! I mean: Sarah's going to the HOSPITAL. She has to declare herself as Sarah Manning, since she's the parent of Kira, right?! OMG What will happen

      This episode continues the great pacing the past handful have had. I expected the police to be brought in on the clones this week, but that'll probably be next episode - Sarah can't really go to the hospital without revealing herself at this point. I didn't really feel much at all for Kira at the end of the episode, mostly because despite the same face (and she picked out Alison immediately as a different person, so it shouldn't have been difficult for her to figure out Helena was different), she should have known better than to open the door and wander off with a stranger. She should have known to look before crossing the street. It was sloppy writing that failed to provoke an emotional response. Beyond that, the stakes are as high as ever and allegiances are far from black and white. Can't wait for the next episode.moreless
    • Great show

      This is a really fine television series. It has one of the most compelling plots and features so many fine performances. Tatiana should be up for some major acting awards for so adroitly assuming the peronalities of five different women. The evolution of the story line has been so well done it keeps the show fresh, moving and interesting.

      • Sarah: Shit, Fe. Cosima drank the purple Kool-Aid.
        Felix: Well, then to hell with her. But you can still save Alison.
        Sarah: Alison's fine.
        Felix: She's not fine. She's divorcing Donnie.
        Sarah: It's every freak for herself.
        Felix: Divorces do really strange things to normals, Sarah. They lose their fake happiness, they forget the way to the mall, and then they come downtown to find themselves.
