so because I’m a responsible adult, I’ve spent the last week watching every episode of Orphan Black instead of studying for my exams…

Holy shit. Holy SHIT.

FeRDINAND!! 😒

ahhhh shit

I like really love Krystal though and just…I really love that the writers did that. That they took someone they knew we’d immediately stereotype and judge and write off and then they allowed us, so quickly upon meeting her, to totally empathize with her. All the judgments slip away in place of love and support within one scene. One conversation.

And you have to realize: they’ve done that with every clone thus far. They show you this highly stereotyped generalized image and then allowed our perspectives of those images to alter completely. Sarah - all heavy eye-liner and tattered tights - calling about her daughter. Cosima - all miniskirts and hippie dreads - giving a homily about genetic development and evolution. Alison - a paranoid turtlenecks and landscaped lawn - willing to help the version of her that could have the one thing she couldn’t (biological kids). Helena - all cut-up back and crazy eyes - turned into a puppy at the slight sight of kindness.

And what’s interesting is that it takes no time for you to change your idea of these women. It doesn’t take hours of conversation and background research. In one fraction of a second, you see in them that tiny aspect of humanity that you see in yourself, and in that reflection you feel love - or at the very least you feel affection - and then even the idea of those past judgments are rendered utterly ridiculous.

And that’s important for this show. That’s WHAT’S important about this show. Surpassing stereotypes and judgments isn’t an impossible feat - in fact it’s incredibly easy. Loving the people beneath those stereotypes and judgments isn’t impossible either. And to learn more about the way you tick, you need to open yourself up to those fractions of moments where you are free to see yourself in those other people.

This has been a lesson in yet another reason why I love this show.

I love how the way they handled Krystal basically paralleled how traditionally (hyper)feminine women are treated in our society. The narrative during the episode literally went from “look at this vapid beauty queen” to “she is conducting her own investigation into the clonespiracy and knows a lot more than she lets on”.

Everyone underestimated her, including the audience (I know I did!) and it was a mistake. How’s that for social commentary? Orphan Black does this kind of thing all the time and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. Thank you again, Orphan Black.
