She’s a Wild One: New Orphan Black Teaser

Ah, the teaser. The perfect 15 second clip that creates more questions than clues. But we’ll take it. The latest glimpse of Orphan Black’s third season features Sarah across from one of the Project Castor (Ari Millen) clones.

Boy clone asks “What is the wild one doing with Dyad?”.

My questions: Who is the wild one? Does that refer to Sarah, or the entire Tatmas set of clones? How many other sets are there? Why does he think she’s with Dyad? How did this conversation come about?

Orphan Black Season 3 premieres April 18th on Space and BBC America.

Orphan Black “Governed by Sound Reason and True Religion” – Our Brains Explode with Theories Galore!

Orphan Black Sarah Manning and Mrs S Tatiana Maslany Governed by Sound Reason and True Religion

Episode 2 of Season 2 “Governed by Sound Reason and True Religion” continued at an unrelenting pace (part of what we love) – and while we didn’t necessarily feel like we were moving in a distinct direction point in the second season story it had more than enough to keep us hooked.

In the conversation about the episode topics quickly veered away from the episode as a single entity and instead had us thinking about what the show was doing in it’s larger mythology and more generally about the conversation the show is having with the audience.

There has been so much more happening in this story at this point; the discovery of clones and learning about each other, that we’ve hardly stopped to think about why. Project Leda has been name dropped a few times, but diving further into the Dyad Institute, and Mrs. S’s network has led us to really start to question where this all started, and why.

[Spoilers ahoy for Orphan Black Season 2 Premiere “Nature Under Constraint and Vexed” and prior. You know the drill.]

Let’s be honest – did anyone not spend about 5 minutes in the first half of the season opening thinking “Wow. So much Felix butt.”, because I did. It was just out there and everything. I kinda love it. Isn’t that what the show is all about – just putting it all out there, up front and then driving ahead full tilt? Continue reading
