Have you been watching BBC America’s new science fiction/drama series Orphan Black? I’ve been hooked since the first episode back in March. Starring Tatiana Maslany as all 6 clones: Sarah, Alison, Cosima, Katja, Beth, and Helena is an extremely talented actress. What Maslany does in this show is amazing. As you watch, you forget that all 6 clones are the same person. It is not just the makeup that tricks you, it is the emotion, the actions, and the feeling of the characters. What fun it must be on the set of such a show!
Every episode of Orphan Black is packed with suspense, action, drama, and best of all, horror. For a show like this, you can’t start watching the show at episode 5, you have to start watching on the first episode or else you will get mindraped and not know what is going on whatsoever. So, if you’ve never heard of Orphan Black at all, here’s the full-on plot:
(From BBCAmerica.com) – Sarah has always lived the life of an orphan outsider. But a clone is never alone.
Sarah hopes that cleaning out a dead woman’s bank account will solve all her problems. Instead, her problems multiply – and so does she. Experience a whole new side of BBC AMERICA with the channel’s next original scripted series, “Orphan Black,” the exciting and ambitious new addition to the Supernatural Saturday programming block. “Orphan Black” features rising star Tatiana Maslany (“Cas & Dylan,” “Picture Day”) in the lead role of Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah assumes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones… but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy and must race to find answers about who she is and how many others there are just like her.
*EPISODE 8 SPOILERS AHEAD* On the last episode of Orphan Black, Sarah’s daughter Kira was taken for a little walk down the street with Helena, the Orphan killer. Of course, this triggered Sarah’s Spider sense on because Kira was in deep doodoo.
Helena has been stalking Kira for a while now, and finally had the chance to scoop her up, hold her hand, and talk with her. Now, everyone is thinking Helena is going to hurt the little innocent girl in some way, but nope. Kira and Helena hug, Kira admits she must get going, and as Kira is crossing the street, an SUV comes from the blue and hits Kira from the side! Kira’s small body is shown being mangled across the street like a ragdoll! I was so shocked, and I’m sure everyone else was too! No one was expecting this little innocent girl to get trucked by a car 10 times her size. I’ll be honest, I knew something bad was going to happen, but not this!
Episode 9 of Orphan Black is the climax episode of the season. This second-to-last episode until the season finale reveals the truth about everything! “Everything” includes Sarah and how she is in the mix of all the clones! Another thing about Sarah, we don’t know where she came from or how she ties in with all this.
