Tatiana Maslany has revealed some spoilers for the 3rd season premiere of the TV series, “Orphan Black.” In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter , Maslany shared that the clones she portrays in the series are in more danger than what was previously believed.
In the show’s premiere, Helena had been kidnapped, while her other clone sisters had taken to impersonating each other in order to avoid arousing suspicion as to what they were up to.
To recall, previous episodes showed that Sarah’s character impersonated Rachel, while Alison impersonated Sarah.
In the process of pretending to be Rachel, Sarah discovered that she and her cloned sisters were all in immediate danger.
Before Rachel had been injured, she had been working with others to exterminate all the other clones, in an operation called “Helsinki,” “We realized there are kill switches in a way – there are people who are willing to abort the [cloning] experiment for their own reasons,” Maslany said in the interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “It’s not being able to control their life or make their own decision.” “That’s what it speaks to,” the actress concluded.
Meanwhile, the other characters in the “Orphan Black” season 3 premiere are also facing their own problems.
Delphine called it quits with Cosima, when she was ordered to take the shoes of Rachel, who was injured and has lost an eye.
Donnie was fired from his job, while Alison decided she wanted to be part of the school trustee.
On the other hand, Mrs.
S, who originally promised to safeguard Sarah and Kira was forced to divulge what she had done to Sarah.
Sarah quickly dismissed Mrs.
S’ excuse and answered with the line, “You’re not my people.” Maslany explained in the interview that Sarah felt particularly crushed by the betrayal of Mrs.
“Sarah’s pretty used to being betrayed by people, but she definitely started to trust Mrs.
S in a way she hadn’t before, and let her in,” Maslany shared.
“This betrayal is huge.” “It puts a huge wrench between the two families that Sarah is a part of,” she added.
As to what Sarah will do with the new revelation, Maslany said that the outcome will be dramatic. “She doesn’t do well with it: it’s all or nothing with her,” the actress shared.
“You either support her, or you’re her enemy” “She deals with it in an extreme way, which is warranted by what Mrs.
S did,” the actress concluded
