Orphan Black has been a somewhat frustrating show to follow at times. It seems that every season introduced a new shadowy project or organization dedicated to hunting down our clones and even, unfortunately, introducing new clones. Some seasons, it felt like the show was carried purely on the strength of Tatiana Maslany’s amazing acting and her emotional intelligence with portraying the relationship between the clones. However, as we come into the final season it appears that everything has been pulled back to focus on the Leda clones again; their lives, their relationships with each other, and their struggle to overcome the apparent doom that stalks their existence:
This show has always been the best when it asked ordinary questions of people in extraordinary circumstances. What is family? What is the self? How much freedom are you willing to fight for and how much are you willing to give up to protect those you love? It looks like they’re back to answering those questions on June 10th, and I’m looking forward to it.
