Orphan Black “The Redesign of Natural Objects”

Last week were dark times for our Clone Club. Rachel discovered that her cyber eye of doom can see digital swans because digital ducks are so last year. Alison had an emotional break down where she begged God for forgiveness and then avoided making a confession to her pastor. Cos, finding herself non optimistic for the first time, was short with Scott and in the name of science (#science) tried to implant Sarah’s maggot bot into her cheek. Because that’s a good idea. And Sarah… well Sarah had the best worst time out of any of the ladies as she went on a bender filled with sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll (if you can call the music in that bar rock n’ roll) and teased a little bridge jumping. Luckily for us Felix was finally put to good use as he saved Cos from her nasty/life ending surgery with the news that Delphine was alive (Krystal actually has some value) and was there to help pull Sarah away from Bething (which is a verb I just made up that means jumping in front of a train. I expect to see it in the Urban Dictionary. Don’t let me down people).

Now all this begs the question, what could this week have in store for us? Well, it’s time to rebuild it seems. Our Clone Club has survived it’s biggest defeat and now needs to pick themselves up and fight the good fight. Evie Cho doesn’t look like she’s willing to go quietly in to the evolution and has more or less put a hit out on Alison, Cos, and Sarah. The clone game is no longer the bright shiny toy in the toy room. Genetic modification is the way to go peeps.

You have to figure that Cos will be on the hunt for Delphine because #sciencelove is strong between those two and after seeing Cos’s emotional break down a couple of weeks ago she certainly could use a win here. I guess the return of Delphine, if she hasn’t been manipulated by the Neos, could hopefully bring about a golden science trio between Cos, Scott, and Delphine that will hopefully find a cure for the clone disease. It’s been four seasons and at this point someone is going to have to die from this thing, but I’m still not willing to accept that it has to be Cos.

Alison finds her and the Hendrix fam in a bit of a pickle. Donnie concluded the ultimate sleepover ghost story by getting arrested for the soap drug ring, and now he’s in a bad spot. On the one hand the idea of Donnie trying to survive in prison is probably the gift that keeps on giving, but based on the trailer it doesn’t look like things are going to go well for him at all. When inmates be threatening to stick knives in your brain it’s safe to say you’re going to need to call out the big guns. Good thing this season introduced Adele (who may or may not set fire to the rain) who happens to be a lawyer. It’ll be good to make some use of her and her otherwise pointless story. Felix has already redeemed himself in the eyes of the Clone Club so maybe it’s Adele’s turn. Although I’m still not entirely sure that she’s not a Neo plant. This whole story line seems like a misdirect to me.

Then there’s Sarah. I’m sure she’s going to be dealing with quiet the hangover, but she needs to get her act together because Beth’s ghost has anointed her the leader of the group (thank you Captain Obvious, but I’m willing to cut her some slack on the account that she’s dead and all). MK came back last week to break up the most boring game of Minecraft to speak to the demon child (*ahem* Kira *ahem*) and now this week she needs to talk to Cos and Sarah. Time to come out of the shadows and take the fight to the Neos! Who better to lead the way than a computer whiz who wears sheep masks?

Other things to keep an eye out on this week

  1. Remember Helena was an important member of this cast? Yeah me too…
  2. Art has rapidly shown that he’s a terrible detective. What’s in store for him?
  3. Neo Cop is making moves and now that we know Evie wants our three ladies dead could he be the hitman?
  4. Why the hell is Rachel seeing digital swans? What could that possibly mean? Is there a glitch in the Matrix?

Be sure to turn in later this week for this weeks review. Until then bust your sheep masks out and happy viewing!
