I literally won’t spend hardly any time in the Orphan Black tag because y’all can have your criticisms and that’s fair, but I honestly just don’t care to know what they are. In my eyes, Orphan Black is nearly perfect and fantastically intentional with everything it does.
Onto the new episode: Holy shit. That last scene with Rachel. My jaw literally dropped and I just sat there with my mouth open. Rachel in general this episode really got to me. It’s easy to label her a monster and forget how she got that way, so this episode really kicked me in the feels, especially when she asks her younger self why she didn’t run. And the skin picking because I have OCD and I pick my skin when I’m anxious. Ugh. It’s the fucking details in this show and the way it always manages to blow me away and surprise me. FUCK. Also, if you think Rachel is a dry/boring character, it isn’t Tatiana Maslany’s acting, it’s the character. Rachel has always been portrayed how she’s meant to be.
