Orphan Black 5/25/13 "Unconscious Selection"

They're clones...AND TWINS!!

So I'm guessing the Big Bad who's giving orders to Max Headroom is an older version of the clones; the original.

Poor Art...he got screwed by his partner about ten minutes before he would have done the same thing himself.

Fun watching Alison and Felix bond. They make such a cute couple!

Sad that there's only one week left. This season. This has become my favorite show that doesn't have the words "game" and "throne" in the title.

Wow, always something every episode. The pacing of the season has been terrific. And if I had to pick one of the clones to live the rest of my life with it would have to be Alison. She is frakkin' hilarious. LOL

Yeah, I'm thinking the lady on the phone is the original donor too....

This show is hitting on all cylinders.

Yeah, they always say that. Until they get knocked out with a golf club, tied to a chair, and tortured with hot glue.

I'm not sure which one I'd pick. Cosima would be a no-brainer except for the gay thing, since I'm a sucker for hot geeks.

Oh, and I forgot to mention...just as Catherine of Aragon turned out to be one of the good guys, I wonder if Max Headroom and the Mother of Clones are good guys, or at least, not all that evil (they're certainly ethically-challenged). Max Headroom makes a good point that in the face of the Spanish Inquisition, they have a common interest at least to some degree.

I'd say putting a hit out on Olivier counts as more than ethically challenged -- that is evil (Olivier was an ass, but he did not deserve to die).

What was the deal with that intervention? Even if the watcher somehow had a tracker on Alison, and even if the watcher was constantly monitoring Alison's position, there would not be enough time to get everyone together once they could tell Alison was coming towards the house. And it certainly did not look like all those people had been waiting around for hours.

Man, this show has gotten good.

Kinda weird that Kira's major injuries healed so quickly but that little boo-boo on her forehead is still there.

Art was in full scowl mode factor twelve when he saw that his new partner went behind his back.

Next week's the season's finale? Time flew.

Did Sarah/Beth know about the clone healing ability prior to Kira? Helene does due to the healing from her cutting but what about the others.

When Kira was in the hospital, they briefly showed an x-ray (actually, I don't remember what type of medical image it was). We were supposed to see something astonishing on it, I think, but I couldn't tell what it was. Do any of you know?

I know it's crazy but I thought it was going to be a clone fetus or at least something that really, REALLY wasn't supposed to be there. Now, I'm guessing that she was just surprised that there were no broken bones since it was dismissed so quickly.

My impression is that all we were supposed to see was the doctor freaking out, and that we'll find out later what the deal was.

Pretty sure it was ultrasound. I recall seeing a rectangular object, proportioned long and slim like the spine of a book.

I got the impression that the doctor had seen something he needed to report to someone, but then acted like there was nothing there to Sarah. Waiting for the other shoe to drop on that.

Mind blowing. Loved the twist on Allison's soccer mom from hell intervention scene. Gotta say I have a serious case of hots for Allison since as a science guy my usual choice Cosima is playing for the other team, at least presently. Maybe a sportsy jock science geek could make her defect. Wife wouldn't like that though. Or maybe...

Anyhow, didn't see the twin thing coming.

Loving this show.

A fast paced well acted show moves so quickly that any plot issues are blown by so quickly that they're irrelevant. Well done, you Brit bastids. Well done.

You are kidding, right? Defecting?

Anyways, who says she is a lesbian? She might actually be bisexual!

I'd also have to go for Cosima except for the same problem. Not as fond of her hair, but the glasses make up for it, and the science-geek thing tenfold.

Still a little irked at the whole 'turns out they can tell us apart by the DNA' because of course they can tell you apart so much more easily than that anyway.

Uh, seeing that one person is playing all the clones it's demonstrable that they can't tell them apart w/o the DNA stamp. We've even seen two different clones impersonate Sara and of course sara impersonate Beth. Such a label could be inserted in the so-called (but not always) "junk DNA" sequences.

Well, you'd have to take off the wigs...

...or the hundreds of much more easily detected biological markers that reflect their life up to this point. Do you think Cosima's lungs look the same as Sarah's after all the smoking Cosima has done? Do you expect that Allison's cholesterol level is the same as Helena's, after their different diets and exercise regimens? Do you expect all those scars on Helena's back had perfectly matching scars appear on Beth's? Seriously, there's a $50 glucometer in a drawer in my bathroom that would probably be able to tell them apart with a 15-second finger-stick test.

The nose ring ruins it for me with Cosima. Not a fan of piercings and tats. I'd go for Allison....the hawt housewife next door does it for me

It's not an Emmy but still nice that she's getting recognized.

The nose ring is definitely a strike against, but one I can overlook. Barely.
