Wow–Talk about a delayed post!! Welcome back, Clone Club members for another enticing Orphan Black episode review. (If you do not find them enticing, humor me a little, please?)

This week’s episode,  “Ruthless in Purpose, and Insidious in Method,” written by Gemme Manson and Chris Roberts, brought back a few familiar faces, Dr. Coady, Benchman, and Rudy, laid the ground work for a trip back to London in the search for the Castor clone original while setting up an ingenious triple-double cross resulting in surprising clone swap.

Was that as nail biting and hook reeling as it felt? If yes, great! If no, stick around for jaw dropping details.  This week’s episode seemed to be about following the ball (aka the plot) as it shuffles back and forth under the cups.

Dr. Coady & Benchman

With Dr. Coady’s brief appearance we learned that she was still recovering from the explosion on the military base two episodes back. However, in her short scene we were privy to a short hint in regards to a possible puppet master behind LEDA and CASTOR in her conversation with Benchman.

Substitute Dyad Queen Bee, Delphine paid a visit to Krystal Goderitch, the poor Leda clone who we saw briefly at the beginning of the season. In an attempt to check in on the naive clone, Delphine determines that since her run in with the Castor boys; Krystal had not put two-and-two together.

Orphan Black S3 Ep7 “Community Of Dreadful Fear And Hate” | Review

Weekly Episode Poster from BBC America’s Orphan Black website.

Good to finally be back with a review.  It has been a bit of an adjustment the past few days finishing up my final assignment for grad school and finally catching up on some zzzzz ^___^

Also, glad to be back this week with a different atmosphere than last week’s Orphan Black episode after such a major character loss. This week’s episode, titled “Community of Dreadful Fear and Hate,” gave us some really interesting plot points to cover: Alison & Her Mother, Helena & Ms. S, Scott & Rachel and my favorite, Donnie & Pouchie.

Episode seven was mainly centered around our every astute and spear-headed sister/clone, Alison who was preparing to officially enter into the candidacy for School Trustee while she and Donnie simultaneously purchased her mother’s Bubbles store and officiate their new line of work as drug dealers with Jason by buying a large supply of drugs from the notorious Pouchie.

Helena & Sarah come face to face with Ms. S in Mexico.

Meanwhile, Sarah & Helena find themselves in a small Mexican bar/cantina suddenly surprised by the arrival of Ms. S, whom Helena is more than unenthusiastic to see.

Still on the outs with her ex-lover/girlfriend, Cosima remains reluctant to cooperate with Delphine who shows up at Shay’s apartment with a pee-cup asking Cosima for a sample to run emergency tests.

Mrs. & Mr. drug dealer-sleuths, Allison and Donnie, seemed to have all of their eggs placed into all of the right baskets, but as it turns out there were a few rotten eggs stinking up the bunch. Two major examples: the campaign envelope getting switched with the drug money envelope meant for Pouchie and Allison’s mother’s reluctance to hand over her Bubbles store to them.

I have watched this week’s Orphan Black episode, “Certain Agony Of The Battlefield,” written by Aubrey Nealon and I am still not ready. I do not think I ever will be. Since this is still fresh in my mind and in the minds of all the Clone Club members, I want to first mention Continue reading

A Writer’s Update–In A Flash

Image from Orphan Black’s Tumblr

Happy Sunday, Clone Club and happy mother’s day to all the moms out there. I’ll make this brief; it has been a long, long last few days and I do apologize for this week’s regularly scheduled post being delayed. On top of Mother’s Day, today was my uncle’s birthday, yesterday was mine & my brothers’ (we’re twins) as well as my sister’s college graduation from IUP. Most people don’t know about IUP and that’s okay, but know this–it is a long drive. Needless to say, typing up all my notes and getting my thoughts organized have been a bit exigent. On top of this weekend’s events, I also work and have just entered the last month of my MFA Creative Writing  program.

Anyway, this is just a quick writer update, I’ll have much, much more news for you later this week ;-). I also wanted to  take a second to say how excited I was when I found out our Orphan Black has been picked up for a fourth season by BBC America! Yes! #Cloneclub members, we can rejoice! ^__^

We’re only on episode four of season three and to learn that we’re definitely getting more from these characters was just so amazing. You can read the official word, released on May 7th, from BBC America here. I have a few hours of sleep to catch up on, but I will have a new, clean, mean, nail biting review post up tomorrow.

As always, stay creative,

Gia.
