Spoiler: show
In an earlier episode Helena had gone to the police station and impersonated Sarah impersonating Beth, and Helena had tucked her blond hair up under a hat. It was very well done. In episode 10, Helena is impersonating Sarah to fool Amelia, and is supposedly wearing a wig this time, but I swear they used plain old wig-less Sarah until Helena stabbed Amelia. I think that's cheating the audience, and trading suspense for a cheap shock.

I'm also not sure how I feel about the implication that Mrs. S is somehow involved. Not sure how that fits in.

I am really looking forward to season 2-- which unfortunately doesn't start until April 2014, so it will be a long wait.

I still cling to the hope that Mrs S just packed up and ran because she was worried for Kira. Sarah never had a monitor, as far as we know, so let's keep our fingers crossed that Mrs S hasn't been doing what we all think she did. It would be weird if the organisation never knew of Sarah but somehow had a scientist at hand raising her and her child.
