Things are about to get even more dramatic in this finale as synths and humans alike get caught up in the race against time to stop Basswood. Laura (Katherine Parkinson) realise that she must put her reputation and life on the line if she is to save the sentient androids, but is she also willing to sacrifice her family?

The series also attempts (largely successfully) to have its cake and eat it by introducing a new breed of still-obedient “orange-eye” synths (as opposed to the self-aware green-eyed model), providing the series’ trademark use of blank, unnerving humanoids for moments of pathos and humour.

Mia turned out to be one of the sentient synths, which eventually elicited sympathy from Laura but fear in Joe. Another self-aware synth, Niska (Emily), rebelled against being put to work as a prostitute and went on the run after murdering a human customer.
How Channel 4 played on robot paranoia to successfully promote 'Humans' - via Campaignlive
Eoin McLaughlin, a creative director at 4Creative who worked on the campaign, said: "The reason the idea's resonated with people is there is already a suspicion and growing paranoia around the intimate role that technology's increasingly playing in our lives.
My enjoyment of the show’s first season was due to the show’s wonderful cast, namely Katherine Parkinson (Laura Hawkins), Emily Berrington (Niska), and Gemma Chan (Anita/Mia). So, I was a bit wary of how season two would manage to advance the series beyond the rather simple plotting of season one. Having seen all of season two (which aired this past fall in the UK and will begin airing on February 13 on AMC), all of my worries were unfounded. Season two of Humans is absolutely great. While I don’t want to delve too deeply into the twists and turns of season two, I will say that the series hits new creative highs and brings up a number of thorny issues surrounding synths and artificial intelligence. The writing and plotting is a step above season one, and the show’s characters grow and change in a number of ways I didn’t foresee from the beginning to the end of the season’s eight episode run. One of the greatest elements of British television is the shortened season, which often allows for a show to trim stories to include only the best elements of the plot, and while allowing characters to develop along a clear path without any meandering arcs. Such is the case with this season of Humans. <...> - by Entertainment Fuse - Season 2 [Jean Henegan]
