Orphan Black


Prepare yourselves, Clone Club, because your minds are about to be blown.

The season-two finale of your very favorite show is almost here and we've got a few tidbits straight from the mouths of Orphan Black creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson to help prepare you for an hour that will literally have you squealing. (Whether it's with joy or with fear, we'll never tell.)

At the end of last week's episode, in a move straight out of  Law & Order: SVU's creepy playbook, Rachel had kidnapped Kira and set her up in a nice and creepy (but slightly adorable?) child's bedroom at Dyad, which is, of course, the easiest way to make Sarah very, very angry.

"We think that the season has been about the war between Rachel and Sarah," Fawcett told us. "Kira is just another part of Rachel's big plan to get revenge on Sarah."

So what can we expect from this week's finale, titled "By Means Which Have Never Yet Been Tried," other than for all of our dreams to come true?

"It is absolutely jam-packed from start to finish, and has as many twists and turns to it as three or four episodes of Orphan Black put together," Fawcett teased. 

In fact, there's so much awesome stuff packed into this finale that some scenes featuring two of our very favorite characters, the hilarious team of Alison and Donnie, had to be cut. However, Mason promised us that those scenes will be found on the DVD when it is released in July.

For those of us worried about our favorite scientist after her potential cure was kidnapped by Rachel, John and Graeme were remarkably unhelpful in making us feel any better about Cosima's chances of surviving.  "The ticking clock that is Cosima's health is running out, and the bone marrow seems like the only answer right at the moment," Graeme teased. "Without it, things look pretty bleak."

As for what else we can share from our chat with John and Graeme, it's not much. This finale is bursting with so many developments that you really don't want to know anything. We will, however, tell you this: Bill Nye the Science Guy plays an indirect part, and there's one scene that is both one of the most complicated scenes the show has ever pulled off, and our new favorite scene ever.

Check back directly after the finale airs for an exclusive postmortem with John and Graeme for the answers to all of the questions you're definitely going to have on Saturday night. In the meantime, we'll be furiously working the Emmy campaign for Tatiana Maslany who was deservedly named Best Actress in a Drama at the Critic's Choice TV Awards last night.  

The Orphan Black season two finale airs Saturday, June 21, at 9 p.m.
