This Thursday (June 16) marks the end of what is reportedly the penultimate season of BBC America's Orphan Black. With a very limited number of episodes left, and the final act of the show beginning... It's time to kill off one of the clones.
In case you've totally missed the past few episodes (and you should go back and watch it, it's been great), BBCA's clone drama has spent the past season following Sarah, Alison and Cosima (all played by Tatiana Maslany) as they tracked down the cure for a chromosomal abnormality that's killing them...

Sarah, a grifter, witnesses the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. She picks up the woman's handbag and runs.

As Sarah tries to find out what is going on and who is responsible for it, someone starts picking them off one by one. In a race to find the reason for it all before the killer can get to her, Sarah doesn't know who to trust.
The episode titles for season one are taken from Charles Darwin's evolutionary text "On The Origin of Species" (published November 24, 1859). Season two episode titles are quotes from the works of Sir Francis Bacon. Season three episode titles come from Dwight D. Eisenhower's televised Farewell Address to the Nation given on January 17, 1961 from the Oval Office.
