Critic reviews for From Instinct To Rational Control
It's possible, in fact, that M.K. tipped off Sarah to the imminent attack in Iceland in the first place in order to eventually lead them all to this endgame. Seems a stretch, but Orphan Black has pulled off stretchier.
So far the fourth season has done a terrific job of taking some of the focus from Sarah and the other clones and allowing the supporting characters to shine through.
From Instinct to Rational Control juggles both a new series of stories for the individual clones as well as furthering the season's arc.
"From Instinct to Rational Control" keeps the clones connected in purpose, yet in many ways they're drifting from one another personally.
"From Instinct to Rational Control" (and, indeed, the series as a whole) is a hard item to critique-after all, it's near impossible to properly judge rising action until you have the whole layout to judge it against.
