Somebody give Sarah another pencil!

I loved the scene where MK and Sarah met up in the loft. One line especially stood out to me, I think Sarah said something like: “We run on principle, it's all we’ve got left!”

Did Ferdinand think he was killing Sarah instead of MK?

He said, while stomping the life out of her that she'd been the crust of the problems he's had with Rachel.

But, when Rachel told everyone Sarah had turn herself in, he didn't bat an eye. At that point, I assumed he knew it was MK instead of Sarah.

I think Siobhan answered this question during that scene.

"Kira wants to know why she's like she is?" Remember when MK died, she actually told everyone. "MK's dead! I can't feel her anymore."

When that doctor put the needle down, I said, this ain't going to be pretty.

She stabbed the doctor straight thru the jaw. Impelled her tongue, and attached her to the bed. Just damn!

Re: Orphan Black S05E02 "Clutch of Greed"

^^ covered my eyes for that part, Hodge! Eeeek. I can't do graphic stuff like that, especially needles.

I think the writers could have come up with a better way to handle Kyra. I think it is lazy that they were OK with leaving their lives hanging in the balance because of a ten year old girl wanting to know why she is how she is.

Also that ending..Delphine seemed genuinely scared at whatever she found out from her trip.

And how is that little girl with cancer significant? She's just sick? Any theories as to what Mr. Westmoreland is trying to do? (Since it probably isn't as simple as just perfecting science / longevity)

You know Mattie, we haven't seen the crux of Kira's "specialness".

Yeah, bodily injuries are cured without hesitation, but I get the impression, she's not afraid of aunt Rachel. I'm looking forward to a scene of Kira tossing Rachel around the room using nothing but her mind. Sort of like the movie, The Exorcist.

for reminding me of that last scene.

I was actually frighten for Cosima when Delphine left. But now we know Westmoreland wants her involved with the cure and testing. In other words, the "science".

I haven't truly accepted the idea he's 170-years old. Is it all a hoax?

Now granted, Rachel and Cosima want it to be true, but maybe they're looking at things through rose-colored glasses.

I will admit, they got a fine actor to play him. Stephen McHattie, has done some great work in his career.

I am not too familiar with his work, but I thought he was an excellent cast as well. Very mysterious and great presence on screen.
