Facing her mortality, the consequences are severe. Cosima takes a turn for the worse in the penultimate episode 'Things Which Have Never Yet Been Done' (airing June 14th).
#Oh my goodness #My heart either roars in laughter or breaks for Alison Hendrix #Oftentimes within seconds of each other #So endearing and wild and persnickety and sincere #Unforgettable characters #The tenderness she showed towards Donnie in this episode was breathtaking #(and it´s not like I´m enamored with Donnie) #This show I swear #It´s consistently the best on TV at balancing the most extreme of emotional swings #And what can be said about Tatiana Maslany at this point that hasn´t already been said a thousand times? #Tatiana Maslany´s generosity onscreen is a thing of wonder #Truly a magnificent episode (x)
John Fawcett: Tat did an enormous amount of research, she met with various people in the transcommunity. This is the kind of person that Tat is: she grew her armpit hair for six weeks and was like, really excited about the fact that she was growing this gnarly armpit hair. Then, unfortunately the timing of the episode worked out that she had to attend the Golden Globes just prior to shooting the Tony stuff. She was trying to get an outfit for the Golden Globes that would cover her armpits, and then obviously in the end realized that that was impossible. She ended up having to shave her armpit hair. So that never made it onscreen, I think they faked it somehow.
So that the spirit of man (according as it is meted out to different individuals) is in fact a thing variable and full of perturbation, and governed as it were by chance. - Francis Bacon, Novum Organum
