No consensus yet.
The show only does a half-decent job explaining what is amounts to a pretty serious retcon.
Once Beth's story wrapped last episode it was unclear if there would be another return to the past. Thankfully, that story continued when Art and Sarah visited her flat... and flashbacks began filling in more of the blanks.
"Transgressive Border Crossing" shed more light into Beth's final days, and also added "maggot-bots" into the show's lexicon and my future nightmares. Suffice to say, this gives "bugged" a whole new meaning.
Two episodes in, and it looks an awful lot like we're getting two seasons of Orphan Black for the price of one.
"Transgressive Border Crossing" had an extraordinarily tough act to follow... Nevertheless, we do get a great moment or two, most of which remind us that Tatiana Maslany's virtuosic performances are not the only exceptional elements of Orphan Black.
Holy god, this show.
This season of Orphan Black continues to be off to a really strong start with Orphan Black Season 4 Episode 2.
Orphan Black remains exciting, tragic, and consistently funny; this season appears poised to deliver on all three elements.
I didn't feel like the Beth flashbacks added a whole lot. It's actually a bit disconcerting that after coming this far in the story, we're going all the way back to the beginning.
Pushing forward after its impressive, format-breaking season premiere, "Transgressive Border Crossing" cements Orphan Black's determination to keep one foot planted firmly in the past.
