Review: Orphan Black, Season 2, Episode 5

Sarah_Orphan_BlackClones and other main characters are reuniting to hunt for answers together, making ‘Ipsa Scientia Potestas Est’ an Orphan Black season 1 reunion of sorts. Despite Helena’s protests and snarls, she makes quite the team with Sarah and Felix. One of the earlier scenes of the trio in Felix’s apartment is one of the strongest comedic sequences of the season because the humor comes out of a completely honest interaction and culminates in a valuable step forward – they’re becoming a family.

And the more Helena is part of that family, the better. She’s the driving force of episode 5. Not only is she the one responsible for pushing the narrative forward, but she’s also pulling more heart and emotion out of Sarah than ever. No one can connect to Helena quite like Sarah and the more Sarah comes to realize that, the more she feels responsible for Helena, much like a big sister.
