Loved this Allison-centric episode. We need more of those even if they don't move the main storyline all that much.


Right? She's so fun to watch.

I am usually an episode or two behind, but now that I've caught up, I thought I'd offer my .02.

This season started slow for me and I wasn't exited at first, but the last few episodes have been really entertaining and captivating for so many reasons and on so many levels, but, of course, with ALL of girls and their unique personalities still the driving factor of the show. We even saw Beth again.

I see the US viewership continues to slip. Is this too offbeat for us? Is it too character driven? Is it too complex? Is there not enough RomCom--well, of a hetero variety?

I think US viewers are just too lazy. That's why CBS is the #1 network year after year. All their shows are case of the week shows were you can miss one or a couple of episodes and still know what's going on. At the same time BBC America isn't that big of a network. Heck what else do they really have? Most of the good shows of BBC they broadcast it through BBC One, BBC Two, or sell the US rights to Starz, SundanceTV, etc.

Really fun episode.

I mean the package switcheroo is the oldest cliche in the book but that doesn't matter because they pulled it off well and made it fun.

I still firmly believe Allison is the best character on tv right now

New clone Crystal getting dragged into all the mess. Feel bad for her. Tatiana looks pretty great as a blonde bimbo that's for sure.

Right? I felt bad and we didnt even get to know her. And she definitely was a hottie. Helena with Donnie was just too great.

I lost interest with the addition of the male clones and too many various factions/groups/shifting alliances going on.

Leda, Dyad, Topside, Proletheans, Mrs S's group now Castor the military.. I'm sure I've left out a few.. Tatiana's absolutely incredible but the plot is too convoluted for me to follow.

Anyone else wonder what Tatiana's real accent is? For the longest time I figured it was british like Sarah based on the stupid assumption that since Sarah is the main character, lol. Now that I thought about it I think she probably has an american accent like Allison/Cosima. I havent seen any interviews so I'm still in the dark haha

Her accent is so attractive. When she was talking as she was dressing Donnie's wounds I was like

Terrific season opener. It's a prequel to the series pilot where we get to find out more about Beth Childs and another, previously unseen clone named M.K. who was helping her unravel the mystery of Neolution.

I don't get BBC America without bumping up my cable tier, & amazon prime doesn't include season 4. Is this a neolutian plot to get my $$$?

It's about time. 2017 will be the final season of Orphan Black so she's only got one more chance to win another.

The crew who does the editing on the show deserves an Emmy for the seamless way they're able to integrate the scenes of Tatiana Maslany's various characters together.

Yep. Her win and Rami's (please tell me you are seeing this) were pretty cool. Now, millennials, you've been recognized. Go out and vote.

Well deserved. My wife got into the show this summer, and it was amazing to watch a show where the main actress plays so many different clones. Yet, you believe each one is a different character. Definitely an amazing actress.

Digging this one up from the grave.

Series finale tonight. Sad day as one of my favorite shows ever comes to a close. I'll follow Tatiana for sure. Hopefully she gets big time roles cause she deserves it.

Two great shows ended their runs last night: Orphan Black and TURN: Washington's Spies. I liked how both wrapped up their series.

Orphan Black was the role of a lifetime for Tatiana Maslany. It will be hard to see her in other roles that don't challenge her talent just as it is for every actor who starred in iconic roles. I hope she wins another Emmy and has continued success.
