Orphan Black blew us away last year (you may have seen our Season 1 recaps during the hiatus?) with its riveting performances (led by Tatiana Maslany), brilliant storytelling, and intriguing romances (like Sarah/Paul and Cosima/Delphine). Now it's back for Season 2, and so are our weekly episode recaps. Buckle up—we have a feeling it's going to be quite the ride.
This post contains SPOILERS for all aired episodes of Orphan Black, including last night’s Season 2 finale “By Means Which Have Never Yet Been Tried.” Enjoy!
Welcome to the season finale of Orphan Black. Grab your glass, get comfy, and strap in! It’s one hell of a ride.
Sarah stands in a dark corridor. She is systematically stripped and interrogated over her medical history all while being methodically if hastily examined. Sarah does not resist but rather sits quietly and endures the humiliation. The examiners are faceless; who they are doesn’t matter. “Are you taking any prescription medication?”
Interspersed with this cold inspection is the heated argument Siobhan and Sarah are having in Mrs. S.’s parlor, presumably right before Sarah turned herself in. Their fight is in the fuzzy background as a devastated and still slightly drugged Felix sits in the foreground trying to come to grips with his unwilling part in Kira’s abduction.
