Orphan Black: It's Time For a Clone to Die

Orphan Black  Photo Credits BBC America

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... An abnormality that's also a side-effect of the cloning experiment that created them in the first place.

Sarah, a grifter, witnesses the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. She picks up the woman's handbag and runs. Instead of solving the mystery of how they can look the same, she is confronted with more mysteries. Taking on the woman's identity she discovers they are clones and that there are more of them out there, living in a wide range of circumstances.

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.

Tatiana Maslany plays clones Sarah Manning, Beth Childs, Katja Obinger, Alison Hendrix, Cosima Niehaus, Helena, Rachel Duncan, Tony Sawiki, Jennifer Fitzsimmons, Krystal Goderitch, M.K. (Mika) and Camilla Torres.

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. Season four titles are inspired by the works of Donna Haraway, Distinguished Professor Emerita in the History of Consciousness Department and Feminist Studies Department at the University of California. All of the titles are taken directly (or inspired by) various elements of her seminal works: Simians, Cyborgs, and Women: The Reinvention of Nature and A Cyborg Manifesto: Science, Technology, and Socialist-Feminism in the Late Twentieth Century. Season 5 titles are from Ella Wheeler Wilcox's poem Protest from her 1914 book Poems of Problems written at the peak of the Women's Suffrage movement and just as WWI was set to go off.

This series is rated TV-MA.
