Welcome back, Clone Club! I hope you all stocked up on tissues before watching this week’s Orphan Black. Our sestras not only brought the tears, but an ample amount of suspense as well. Of course, I would expect nothing less from The Final Trip. Cosima meets the creator of Neolution himself, P.T. Westmoreland. You know, the dude who knew Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Helena discovers she has magical babies, just like her sestra Sarah. Speaking of which, Sarah rebels against the Rachel Regime as only Sarah can, while Kira is surprisingly compliant. MK reunites with Sarah under unhappy circumstances. Ferdinand takes out his frustration with heartbreaking results. Well, I’m ready to jump right in! Friendly reminder that spoilers have eyeballs everywhere just like Rachel, so do be careful.
We open with a dream sequence: Kira (Skyler Wexler) is trying to rouse Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) from her sleep. Mrs. S. (Maria Doyle Kennedy) also comes into view, on Team Kira. Suddenly, we see Sarah jolt upright, snapping back into reality. She discovers she’s in a very small, familiar dark room with a large screen. Back at Dyad, baby!
Meanwhile, as Sarah processes the familiar surroundings, Ferdinand (James Frain) appears. He informs Sarah that Rachel wishes to “parlay.” Well, Detective Enger did say in the previous episode that the Neolutionists wanted to forge a truce. Ferdinand shows a live stream of Alison and Art (Kevin Hanchard), with the former saying that she’s unharmed. In fact, the “nice” Neos brought her home and she’s back to her “busy schedule.” Hmm. Sounds fishy. Cosima also calls in from the Island. She tells Sarah that Rachel helped her administer the cure. If said cure works, she’ll give all the Leda clones a dose of it. Basically, Rachel is one of the good guys now. Of course, Sarah isn’t buying what she’s selling.
Then, we see footage of Kira drawing. Ferdinand dangles the carrot a bit closer – Rachel wants to reunite Sarah with her family. Go home, live a normal life. Isn’t that what Sarah truly wants?
Later, Ferdinand takes Sarah upstairs to meet with Rachel, whose newfound desire to make peace is also accompanied with a desire to meditate. Wow, P.T. Westmoreland did a number on our clone we love to hate. Rachel informs Sarah that Kira is now enrolled in school. After fixing up a nice cuppa for Sarah, she drops the bomb of wanting to regularly study Kira. Of course, Sarah immediately resists, refusing to submit her daughter to the hands of Dyad. Rachel still believes Kira will play a part in saving the clones – her physiology alone is a miracle.
Then, Kira and Mrs. S. are led inside. Sarah happily hugs her daughter. We learn that Mrs. S. and Kira are both aboard the Rachel boat. Sarah is now the deciding factor. Auntie Rachel is quite the manipulator, y’all.
