ORPHAN BLACK 2×01 GOVERNED BY SOUND REASON AND TRUE RELIGION

8.8/10

Di episode minggu lalu, kita melihat bahwa kira disekap oleh seorang pria yang tidak diketahui identitasnya, di episode minggu lalu kita juga melihat Kira yang mukanya hanya bisa plenga plengo (no but seriously) saat dia sedang disisir

Di epis kedua ini, kita diberitahu tentang keadaan Kira, yang ternyata bukan diculik oleh Proletheans (the religious extremists) seperti yang diperkirakan di episode sebelumnya.
Sarah and Kira were reunited mighty fast in a development that kind effectively undoes a lot of the happenings of the season 1 finale.  Finale biasanya menciptakan sesuatu untuk dijadikan plot di musim berikutnya, tetapi masalah yang yang telah diciptakan ini terlalu cepat si selesaikan, tetapi ini juga ada sisi positifnya, like when Alison realized that Donnie’s actually her monitor. It was a surprise, and a relief, that this was cleared up so soon, karena ini bisa menjadi plot baru untuk musim ini.

After confirming that she’d watched Aynsley die for no reason, Alison turned to Felix for help but came up empty-handed as Felix took off with Sarah and Kira for lands unknown. Ini terasa sedikit aneh, karena di season 1 dan 2 ini kita melihat bahwa selama ini Felix lah yang membantu Alison saat dia sedang dalam masalah, dan Felix juga adalah teman curhat galau untuk Alison. His quickness to disengage and tell her to “play possum” with her monitor husband was a huge blow to their friendship.

It’s outside of Alison and Sarah that “Governed by Sound Reason and True Religion” struggled. Storyline untuk Helena hanya berputar pada satu titik, yaitu The Proletheans, a science-friendly religious cult led by Henrik (Nikita‘s Peter Outerbridge), and Helena’s not really doing anything right now but still. Henrik and his cult-y family aren’t exactly interesting tbh. In fact they’re kind of gross since Henrik wanted Helena there in the hopes that she’d be able to have children like Sarah.

Tetapi, di eps ini juga ada adegan seru seperti adegan antara Helena dan Rachel, lalu juga ada adegan antara Mrs. S dengan “teman” lamanya.

Stray Observations :

– Alison: “I killed Aynsley.”
Felix: “No, no, darling….. Well…”

– Jika Donnie sudah menjadi monitor Alison sejak pertama kali mereka bertemu, why is he suddenly so bad at it?

– NO PAUL THIS WEEK. HALLELUJAH LORD BEYONCÈ

– “So… You’re gay..”
