A well-crafted intermediate episode.

This episode was very solid. It was pretty much all about the characters recovering from last week's shocking events. As a result, there isn't a whole lot of advancement of the plot in this episode until the last couple of minutes. In fact, there isn't a whole lot going on in general throughout most of this episode, and yet it is strangely watchable. The characters receive some additional depth, and it is very well structured so that it never becomes boring.

Sarah and Cosima blame themselves for the tragic events of last week, and so they lash out and do reckless things. Siobhan also blames them, which does not help the problem. These scenes comprise the majority of the episode, and serve as excellent character studies. The show has always been set in Toronto, but it's also always been shot so that it could be any urban city. But in this episode, for the first time, we are shown the Toronto skyline. It serves as a wonderful backdrop to a touching scene and confirms that it is canonically in Toronto.

Donnie and Alison host a birthday party for one of their adopted children. This sequence was okay. It showed Alison's way of grieving over last episode and provided some amusement. The very ending of the sequence makes me excited to see the next episode.

The episode does end with a couple of twists. There is one big one that people will be very excited about yet I am neutral towards. There are a couple of small ones that pose questions for future episodes.

This is a perfectly good episode of Orphan Black. It doesn't have much that will knock your socks off, but it provides some solid aftermath to last week's fantastic episode and sets up some gripping plot threads for future episodes.
