Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 1, Part 2 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterToday Serial Box releases part two of the first episode of Orphan Black: The Next Chapter. I was really impressed by the first part of the episode, though it was mostly introduction and fairly short. The second part is a bit longer and is when the real meat of the story begins.

I love how with Tatiana Maslany reading the story, even though it isn’t on television, you can still feel each clone’s personality. It's great to hear about the original clones, and I am especially eager to hear about Sarah and Allison as the season continues. Plus, I think it will be even more fun when multiple clones are together in the same scene interacting. Still, it's really appealing that there is a new clone as a main character, and Vivi is very likable and a lot different from the others we know.

Killing Eve - You're Mine - 5.08 - Review & Recap

Killing EveOne of the things that makes Killing Eve interesting, is that while you want Eve (Sandra Oh) and MI6 to prevail, you also don’t want Villanelle (Jodie Comer) to get captured or killed. This season with Villanelle working with MI6, it has made the lines blur more and even made it easier to forget sometimes that Villanelle is not only a coldblooded killer, but she enjoys it. The whole operation was bound to fail from the beginning, but it was a lot of fun to watch play out.

Obviously, the title of the episode, “You’re Mine,” is partially a reference to the line at the end of the episode, which we’ll get to, but it also represents the twisted and obsessive relationship between Villanelle and Eve. For the first season, most of it was in Villanelle’s head, but throughout this season, Eve’s obsession with her has continued to grow. The relationship between Villanelle and Eve has always been a strange one to say the least, but also very interesting and one of the best parts of the show.

Lately Eve has been moving ahead full force and not looking back, ignoring everyone who tries to get her to see what she’s doing, fully trusting Villanelle at this point. She sometimes seems to recognize she is behaving abnormally, but she still doesn’t stop. Before she was intrigued but also scared, however, as her obsession has grown, she has become more and more comfortable around Villanelle. After her husband left her, it only got worse, opening it up to her being less likely to hold back. Niko (Owen McDonnell) was a sort of tether for her at one point, but now that she feels she’s lost him, all bets are off.
