Orphan Black 108 Preview “Entangled Bank” – More Helena, More Mayhem

It’s hard to believe there are only three episodes left in season one of Orphan Black.  It’s even more amazing when you realize just how much the story and characters have progressed in only seven episodes.

She may be crazy as hell, she may be unpredictable, and she may be dangerous, but Helena is so much fun to watch.  In last week’s episode, I was laughing out loud when she was in the cafe with Sarah pouring sugar on top of her Jell-O to the tune of “I Got You, Babe.”

In a way Helena is the personification of the show itself.  Both are insanely fun to watch, you never quite know what either is going to do next, and although the meaning of the word is different in each case, they both can be described as “killer.”

“You wanna mess with my life, I’m gonna mess with yours.”
“It’s time I told you what’s really going on.”

Sarah’s actions pit the Orphans against each other as she tries to plan her next move.  As Paul tries desperately to cover up Sarah’s existence, Alison takes vengeance on her suspected monitor, which could cost her everything she holds dear.


Thankfully it looks like Helena’s going to featured heavily in the storyline, and with Kira no less.  The police confront “Beth” about Sarah Manning while Alison tells nosy neighbor Aynesley she’s in for a fight.  Art begins to get closer to who Sarah is, while Paul looks like he’s going to get inside information from Leekie about what’s really going on…or at least what Leekie wants him to believe.

So much going on and only three episodes left.  I can’t wait and at the same time I don’t want it to be over.  At least Orphan Black is definitely coming back for a second season and while it’s a long wait, we’ll have a lot to look forward to.


Orphan Black airs on BBC America Saturday nights at 9/8c right after Doctor Who and just before The Nerdist.
