Personally, I'm glad Helena's still alive 'n kickin'. She's my favorite clone! That said, I do enjoy the "adventures of Alison", and think putting her in a community theater production - where we get to see thespian virtuoso Tatiana Maslany act badly - was genius.

Same here....
It's a tribute to Tatiana's acting abilities when you contrast the differences between the almost feral Helena, uptight Allison and the refined Rachel Duncan characters!
She does an incredible job with the roles... I'm at the point where I actually consider them different people now.

Yes CW... Otherwise a great show that I really enjoyed btw. I never saw the other, older show - only the original Besson movie...

The Besson movie was also Americanized with Bridget Fonda. Forget the name though. Too lazy to look it up.

Now I'm glad they didn't finish off Helena....
Sarah now uses her as a tool... "I'll unleash Helena on all of you" eek.gif
Best line of the episode "A little more off the back Helena..." tongue.gif

There may be hope for Art the Clueless because Carlos the Clueless in Continuum eventually got clued in.

I like Vic because of the physical pain he gets. He lost a finger from his drug supplier. Pepper sprayed by Alison and had his hand damaged by Paul. I wonder what he will get hit with next.

Art yet again gets tooled by Helena. Clueless! Remember, he's supposed to be a veteran police detective.

...and Art's partner Angie was working behind his back investigating Allison independently.
I like the actor, he's very intense... but wish they'd make him a bit more savvy.

I failed to remember when or where Helena got expert sniper training...

Loved her doll head that looked like Rachel though and put on the scope.

Cosima's life is winding down, they'll need to find a cure for her or she's toast like the other clone that already died of cancer.. maybe some stem cells from Helena, the almost immortal one..

He's a detective. He's not a prison guard. He investigates crimes and is not experienced at making sure prisoners don't escape. Especially ones as crazy as Helena. She probably could have fashioned a shiv out of the sardine can lid if she wanted to. Or taken a bite out of his throat ala Rick Grimes in The Walking Dead. They should have chained her hands and feet to a really sturdy chair and fed her with a sling shot.
