What I’m Watching: Orphan Black (Season Finale)

Orphan Black: Season 1, Episode 10 “Endless Forms Most Beautiful” (B)

It shouldn’t be too much of a surprise that, after a thrilling season, this season finale is a bit of a disappointment. That’s mainly because every installment was full of major developments and shocking revelations, and therefore the finale is almost inconsequential in comparison. That shouldn’t diminish the impact of some of the important moments, namely Dr. Leekie showing up casually to present deals to Allison and Cosima now that they have become self-aware. Sarah meeting yet another version of herself pulling the strings was expected but still momentous, and Donnie revealing himself to be Allison’s monitor confirmed Allison’s long-existent paranoia. Aynsley’s death was rather dramatic, but I think it served to show that Allison really is losing her grip on reality. As Cosima managed to get close with Delphine by actually being honest with her and reveling in scientific discovery, she’s suffering from something that looks like it’s getting worse by the minute. Helena killing Amelia was brutal, but more so for the devastation it caused in Sarah, who had no trouble taking out the sister who couldn’t bring herself to kill her. Amelia’s cautionary words about Mrs. S are disconcerting, and I’m curious to see what her role is because she’s seemed like Sarah’s only ally up until now. The anger in Art’s eyes when he was questioning Sarah was palpable, and I’m interested to see how he fits in next season. This was still a terrific first season, and I can’t wait to see what happens in season two.

Season grade: A-
Season MVP: Tatiana Maslany
