Critic Reviews for The Collapse of Nature

A series like Orphan Black calls for experimentation and pushing the limits in terms of technology and story, but where it really shines is in focusing on the relationships between the core clones, issues of identity and free will.

This season premiere set the tone of the season of how we will visit the expansive nature of Neolution. I'm eager to learn more.

Swear to Leda this shit snuck back up on us like the night that Walt Whitman used to talk about, but this s*** is here and it's back, yo.

The fourth season of Orphan Black seems poised to go back to its roots with "The Collapse of Nature", and that's a good thing.

After last season's neat season ender, our showrunners had to find a new story to blow us away. And they did.

Maslany's incredibly strong and nuanced performance carried this installment to the finish line, making it something truly great. She spent most of "The Collapse of Nature" as Beth Childs, the clone whose suicide kick-started... the entire series.
