"Manacled Slim Wrists" sees Orphan Black taking a comedic -- albeit conspiracy-laden -- turn.
Ah, dear Crystal... you provide a very welcome comic distraction from the very grim doings on the other side of the world at Revival.
Definitely the best episode of this season thus far.
I did enjoy the plots with Susan/Cosima/Mud and Sarah/Krystal/Art. However, we have a limited time with Orphan Black left, we need to make every minute count.
"Manacled Slim Wrists" keeps an interesting balance between the complex plot and action of the larger story, and the inherent comic relief that a character like Krystal provides.
We've been waiting for what feels like forever for Krystal Goderitch to make her triumphant return to Orphan Black and on Saturday, she finally resurfaced!
For an hour that prominently featured Cosima held captive in a basement, Orphan Black Season 5 Episode 6 was easily one of the show's funniest installments ever.
The mix of over-the-top evil -- the kind necessary for a show with emotions and ambitions as large as Orphan Black -- and broad humor works well, especially when they serve to flesh out the show's giant stable of supporters.
Once again, one of Orphan Black's greatest strengths is the unexpected alchemy that comes from mixing and matching the many rich characters the show has spent five seasons developing.
I regret using up my best Step Brothers reference a few episodes ago, because that truism about oppressing people until they rise up has resurfaced once again, in an episode that's more transitory than anything else.
Serious question: What if my entire recap was just "OMG, KRYSTAL" copied and pasted approximately 100 times?
