It’s a simile.
"What’s the question that you’re sick of answering? Did I ask it?"
As Sarah storms through henchmen and Alison flutters between responsibilities, Cosima confronts the question of their autonomy with a quiet desperation that’s just devastating. Her mystery illness is a ticking clock counting down to who knows what, and so Cosima’s staring down a seemingly unsurpassable wall, hoping beyond all hope that her research could reveal a hidden doorway to get through it. Complicating matters is the fact that she’s fallen hard for Delphine, who delivers one of the episode’s most shattering moments when she not only gives Cosima’s blood sample to Leekie, but calls her “324B21.”
At this point, it’s hard to say what side Delphine’s on. Her breach of Cosima’s trust and casual dismissal of her personhood, though, gives the clones’ fight for independence that much more of an emotional impact. While it’s clever to incorporate the Supreme Court’s recent decision that synthetic genetic material is eligible for patents, everyone’s refusal to acknowledge the clones as flesh and blood people is what will propel this storyline forward. Cosima knows even as she says the words that “my biology, my decision” (the clone version of “my body, my choice”) will be the hardest-won fight of her lifetime.
I had to.

i’m looking at you, elementary.
that’s really cute how you dismiss the importance of replacing a white male literary icon with a woman of color and…
Possibly my favorite photoset ever.
today at the bookstore i asked the lady working if she had any lgbtq books that i could check out and her eyes magnified in what i mistook as horror and i thought i had offended her and then she said “i have a bag of lesbian fiction in the basement i’ve been waiting for someone to finally ask” and she all but burst down the stairs to get them for me
"I have a bag of lesbian fiction in the basement" is my new go-to pickup line
Sarah, put it down.
