Island of Sisters: Let's Talk About Ferdinand (Orphan Black's Final Trip Episodes 1 & 2- "The Few Who Dare" and "Clutch of Greed")

Rachel has internalized the greed for ultimate power and control over others as the only way to find purpose in her identity as a clone, and is therefore a shell built by patriarchy, and as fragile as one. (A nautilus, if you will. Points if you get the reference). Ferdinand claims to love Rachel, but what he loves is the violence of their relationship, the power play that makes both of them feel stronger. 

Ferdinand wants, needs, the power and dominance. He gets angry. And the person who is in front of him when his anger erupts is MK. She shares a face with Rachel. That is enough.

Love Your Frenemies: Thoughts Before Boston - Queer Girl Running Chapter 6

Also I'm pretty sure nightblood makes people immune to radiation which is how the survivors of the first nuclear apocalypse endured in the first place, and since you had nearly all of Ontari's blood pumped into you (and let's be real, you were fluid bonded with Lexa), you're good. Ditch these losers.
