Maria Doyle Kennedy, thank you for being the best TV mom who ever TV mom-ed, and for portraying such a strong maternal figure for five seasons. We are all your chickens.

"Guillotines Decide" may have done a great deal to move the story forward, but there remain enough loose ends to offer much to look forward to in the final two episodes of the series.

"Guillotines Decide" was an incredible episode that showed Orphan Black at its best. The eighth hour of the final season delivered a perfect mix of Neolution corporate drama and family heart.

I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed Orphan Black Season 5 Episode 8. What a phenomenally masterful hour of television.

The show gives her quite a sendoff, having Felix articulate what has often been Orphan Black's deepest message, that we are so much more than genetics, and that family is about more than just blood.
