The title is a quote from the final chapter of Charles Darwin
's "On the Origin of Species" (1859), which ends, "There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having been originally breathed into a few forms or into one; and that, whilst this planet has gone cycling on according to the fixed law of gravity, from so simple a beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are being, evolved." It is also the title of a 2005 book about evolutionary developmental biology, a topic featured on the show. See more
In this episode Cosima finds out that the clones are patented. This part of the plot has several errors at the same time. Even if it were possible to get a patent on human cloning (which is in fact NOT possible), a patent is granted for the maximum duration of 20 years. Moreover, a patent would never take away your human rights.... This twist in the last episode makes the whole story completely ridiculous. See more
[Sarah prepares to introduce Amelia to Helena
Yes. I carried you both. I need to see her.
I don't think that nine months of gestation entitles her to risk us all.
Hey, look, Helena's my twin sister. She has a right to know.
Because you shared a womb? Helena. Is. Dangerous.
