“Orphan Black” recap (2.04): Rise of the Fallen Angel

Sarah, understandably, doesn’t know what to make of this. She shot Helena, she killed her. Helena says shot her, yes. Killed her, no. Helena followed her from “mother’s house” (not “your mother”, mind you). Sarah doesn’t know what Helena is going to do, she assumes she’s going to get her back for shooting her, but Helena doesn’t want revenge, she wants her seeeestra. She doesn’t want to go back to the Proletheans, they took something from her. She goes up to Sarah and embraces her, resting her head on her chest, finding comfort in her sister’s heartbeat.

OB 204-11 Don’t even get me started on the fact that this is Tatiana Maslany nuzzling up against Tatiana Maslany. 

Sarah cries. At first from fear, but once she realizes Helena doesn’t want to hurt her, probably from relief. Relief she’s not about to die, relief she’ll get to see Kira again, relief she didn’t kill her twin.

At the Prolethean compound Henrik’s wife tells Henrik that Grace is sleeping and Mark tells Henrik that Helena is lost. Henrik isn’t so worried, though, because they already have what they needed from Helena…and they have made a test tube baby from the egg they stole. Here I thought when Helena said they took something from her that she just didn’t understand. And while this is better than raping or impregnating her, it’s still so, so messed up.

What did you think of “Governed As It Were By Chance”?
