Reunited and it feels so…well, it should feel good. Sarah and Helena are finally reunited, but not under the best circumstances. This week’s Orphan Black is tighter and more driven than the first four episodes, as “Scarred by Many Frustrations” sees Mrs. S. and Felix taking on a fragile new ward, while Sarah tries to convince Helena (and her scorpion friend, I guess) to help her break out of the Castor base, and Cosima makes a fun new sexy time friend.
Orphan Black kind of has an Ari Millen problem. These Castor clones are dropping dead left and right, and it seems to indicate that Millen isn’t quite up to the challenge of portraying so many different characters like Tatiana Maslany can. “Newer Elements of Our Defense” introduces yet another Castor clone as the literal brains behind the operation, giving Helena a chance to really shine in an episode that otherwise spends too much time spinning its wheels.
That’s the great thing about clones. No matter how many we meet, you know you’ve never really seen the last of them. Hence, no matter what happens to Sarah, Allison, Cosima, Helena, Rachel or the rest, Orphan Black will officially return for Season 4 in 2016.
Well that was kind of predictable, right? This week, Orphan Black made a connection between the Leda and Castor clones that you could sort of see coming, but that didn’t make “Formalized, Complex, and Costly” any less riveting — the real twist, though, came at the end of the hour. That death wasn’t one I saw coming.
For the last two seasons, Orphan Black’s primary focus has been delivering dimensional stories about women, each female clone highlighting how different and engaging each woman can be, while also symbolic of various genres (Helena is horror, Cosima is sci-fi, etc.). But with the addition of the male Castor clones in Season 3, the dynamics have changed and the stakes are higher than ever before. This isn’t just about man vs. woman, it’s about nature vs. nurture and what it means to survive.
Orphan Black Season 3 has almost reached fever pitch in advance of Saturday’s premiere, but who couldn’t use one last cloned trailer?
