Exploring the art of storytelling.

Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis (SPOILERS)


I was impressed with Ari Millen’s (male clones) acting in “Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis.”  It’s hard to step into the shoes of Tatiana Maslany, but he’s keeping up.

My favorite part of this episode was when Cosima spun Scott in the swivel chair.  Scott complained that he suffered from motion sickness.  This small detail illustrated Cosima’s more playful side.

Alison and Donnie are a power couple.  I love their relationship; it’s different from all of the other characters.  I’m glad that they’re finally on good terms again and stronger than ever.

The waterboarding scene with Helena was probably the most graphic scene in “Orphan Black” so far.  It was difficult to watch.  I felt like I was suffocating.  Poor Helena.

Cal rented himself (and Kira and Sarah) a new apartment.  And now Cal is going to be on the road again with Kira.  Well, that apartment was a waste.  They made such a big deal about the family settling down together.  Maybe Sarah will end up living there on her own.  I just don’t really understand why the writers wrote this apartment into the story when the characters won’t even be using it.  It confuses me.
