The way Orphan Black always put women at the center of its story, never shortchanging their complexity for likability or easy solutions, is what will be most remembered and missed.
"Gag or Throttle" exemplifies how well the series combines plot, character payoff, and great pacing with the consistently outstanding acting of Maslany and company.
"Ease for the Idle Millionaires" pulls at the complex and interconnected plot threads, while giving Maslany endless opportunities to showcase her talent.
"Beneath Her Heart" is an excellent character study of Alison (Tatiana Maslany) that not only delves into her past, but also clearly marks her future.
There’s a lot to unpack, but the show deftly moves things toward a quickly approaching finalé with its signature fast pace.
"The Few Who Dare" continues to keep the clones separate, for the most part, as they each pull on a different thread in the Neolution plot.
