What I’m Watching: Orphan Black

Orphan Black: Season 1, Episode 8 “Entangled Bank” (B+)

I look forward to the arrival of a new episode of this show every week, which I now will only make me more disappointed once this show wraps its initial ten-episode order. Yet I’m confident that it will have a long and thoroughly interesting life since it has already been renewed by BBC America for a second season. It’s never that just one thing happens on this show, and one startling realization on a character’s part is always followed by something else. Art’s discovery of Sarah’s existence led him straight to Mrs. S and to Felix, both of whom handled their interrogations well, but of course he put together the fact that Felix was the one who called him. I love that Alison showed up drunk at Felix’s after opting to have sex with Aynsley’s husband (who I knew would have a bigger part than his one scene in last week’s episodes given the choice of actor), and that Sarah decided to bring her right to Mrs. S so that they could show her what was really going on. Helena taking Kira turned out to be nothing to worry about, but Kira getting hit by a car is the last thing Sarah or any of the clones need right now. It was great to hear how Delphine justified sleeping with Cosima, discussing sexuality as a scientific spectrum, and it was interesting to see that, while she did tell Dr. Leekie a good deal of what she found in Cosima’s files, she left out Kira’s existence. Paul is far from done advocating for his new girlfriend Sarah, and getting on Dr. Leekie’s good side while Olivier got himself taken out definitely puts him in an ideal position to help her.
