About halfway into this week’s of Orphan Black, I found myself thinking that this was a pretty straightforward season finale. Then, just a few minutes later, I suddenly gasped and screamed, “Holy fuck!” at my screen. Let’s talk about this fresh madness, shall we?
Orphan Black sent a few of its characters abroad this week in search of answers — and boy, did they find a big, weird one. But the best storyline of the week happens at home, when one of our Leda clones makes a very deep — and violent — familial connection.
There are two kinds of clones in Orphan Black: Clones who are self-aware and those who are “naive.” Obviously, our Clone Club members fall into the former category, but what happens when we encounter a clone sitting at the fringes of the conspiracy? Is it better to let her know she’s not crazy? Or hope she stays…
Alison Hendrix drunkenly mentioned her mother way back in Season One of Orphan Black, and now we finally get to make the soap-making mama, and she’s a delightfully horrible human being.
What exactly is Dr. Coady, scientist and surrogate mother to the Castor clones, up to? This week’s Orphan Black finally reveals Coady’s endgame, and it’s a scheme worthy of a costumed comic supervillain.
The revelations about the Castor Clones just keep on coming. While Sarah finds herself in her latest vat of hot water and tries to talk her way into escape, several of the other characters make disturbing discoveries related to the Castor biology and how it affects other people.
Oh, family. On Orphan Black, it’s never as simple as sibling rivalries or uncomfortable family dinners. No, here it’s all about bullet wounds, freaky medical experiments, banishment, and literally digging for secrets. Plus, we’ve got a heaping side of romance real talk and a drug-dealing surprise.
So that happened. We’ve only known about Orphan Black’s Castor line of clones for just a few episodes, but we’re already getting some hints as to how they are linked to our familiar Leda clone crew. But of course, there’s a lot of science and betrayal on the way to the latest discovery.
The Castor clones come out to play in this week’s episode of Orphan Black, and their definition of “play” is just plain horrible. Plus, while most of our Leda clones are scrambling to survive, one decides to start up an illegal side business.
Yes, Orphan Black is back and it is as demented as ever. While one of our Leda clones finds herself imprisoned (and maybe slightly crazier than usual), Sarah has to pull off the greatest acting trick of her clone impersonating career. Plus, we’ve got scary new clones — and a rather scary Delphine, as well.
It's understandable if you don't remember everything that happened in Orphan Black's second season. Those ten episodes packed loads of betrayals, revelations, and freaky, freaky science. Let us catch you up on last season before the new season starts this weekend.
Orphan Black promised to open up a new chapter in the cloning conspiracy—and boy, did it pay off on that promise. We're more excited than ever to see what's ahead for Clone Club, and a brand-new faction in the Orphan Black world.
Somehow Donnie, Alison's hapless, terrible husband, was the star of last night's Orphan Black. Yes, he's still a moron and a sneak, but now we know that Donnie also has a heart—one that makes him do all the deliciously wrong things.
Wow. Our clones had four very separate threads last night, and the biggest moments took place far from the Dyad. Secrets were revealed, quips were quipped, and one of our clones has found herself in deep, deep trouble.
Orphan Black isn't kidding around. The first episode of the new season raises the stakes for our Clone Club members while giving us a better look at the dangerous forces that are battling over them—plus unveils a major surprise. Spoilers ahead.
