Full spoilers for Orphan Black’s series finale, “To Right the Wrongs of Many,” continue below.
Even in its final episode, Orphan Black managed to cram two murders, a complicated four-clone scene, the birth of twins, an explanation of the show’s title and even an abortion debate into just 42-plus minutes.
Orphan Black is a show that, throughout its five-season run, occasionally bit off more than it could chew as the complicated biological mysteries introduced in the premiere grew more and more convoluted with each additional layer (see: all of Season Three).
From the Proletheans to the Neolutionists, Susan Duncan to Virginia Coady, Dr. Leekie to P.T. Westmoreland, each piece of the puzzle added more clutter to what ultimately was a story of four different women connected by a unique bond (and their 274 sestras) who learned not only how to survive in a world where they weren’t supposed to exist, but to become a family.
