While this wasn't a plot-centric episode, we did get a heapin' dose of character development regarding the Hendrixes.

We got a few more tidbits in the mystery surrounding Kira and Helena's babies.

"Beneath Her Heart" is the kind of episode that makes all the science and twists in Orphan Black have real meaning.

As someone who absolutely loves Alison, Orphan Black Season 5 Episode 3 was easily one of my favorite hours of the series as a whole.

June 26, 2017 | Rating: 4.75/5 | Full Review…

Their irrelevancy aside, "Beneath Her Heart" is an important episode for Alison's psyche, its emotional gravity leavened by some of the goofiest, most cartoonish gags in the series' annals (including the revelation that Donnie is quite well-endowed).
