ORPHAN BLACK Reveals Season 2 Spoilers We Wish Would Happen
One of the best new series of 2013 is BBC America's Orphan Black, a science-fiction drama starring the insanely talented Tatiana Maslany as several identical women, each with distinctive personalities, that are revealed to be clones. The show's first 10-episode season just ended last Saturday with a second season of ten episodes scheduled to begin sometime in Spring of 2014.
To celebrate fan support for the series, the entire production team behind Orphan Black went on Twitter to express their gratitude to members of the #CloneClub. Mackenzie Donaldson, the assistant to the show's executive producers, went the extra mile on Tumblr and posted this hilarious gag storyboard breakdown of Season 2 that exemplifies the series' wicked sense of humor.
"Season 2" apparently breaks down as follows:
Episode 1 - Sarah (Manning, a small-time con woman clone) doubles down...in Vegas, while Alison (Hendrix, a suburban soccer mom clone) has her head explode.
Episode 2 - Frankenstein! Felix (Dawkins, Sarah's foster brother) blows Paul (Dierden, dead clone Beth's boyfriend), while Rachel (Duncan, a corporate executive clone) has her head explode.
Episode 3 - Cosima (Neihaus, a PhD biology student clone) has a space adventure, while Delphine (Cormier, Cosima's lesbian love interest) takes the Iron Throne from HBO's Game of Thrones and is now Cosima's "puppet."
Episode 4 - Kira (Manning, Sarah's young biological daughter) shoots Vic (Sarah's abusive and stupid ex-boyfriend), while Sarah rejoins the police force and is now "Captain."
Episode 5 - Sarah and "Mrs. S" (Siobhan Sadler, Sarah and Felix's foster mother) have a lightsaber "battle for soul."
Episode 6 - Clones in a bottle. Vic (repeatedly maimed in Season 1) appears in Act 3 and loses his penis in a medieval torture device.
Episode 7 - Dr. Aldous Leekie (head of the Neolution self-directed evolution movement) is caught smoking crack and buys video evidence.
Episode 8 - The clones host NBC's Saturday Night Live.
Episode 9 - Everybody dies. (Hey, works for every Episode 9 of Game of Thrones...)
Episode 10 -- ?
Ah, if only some of this would really happen in Season 2. Otherwise, I'm going to be a little disappointed if John Hurt isn't introduced at the end of Episode 10 as another clone...
