Kris and Stephanie catch up on feedback from the end of season 2 – including further questions, favorite moments, and some additional bits of information. We also have a report from someone who went to some Orphan Black events at San Diego Comic Con!
I just wanted to touch base on the comments related to sexual preference and blood drives in relation to Sarah’s questioning by the meanie doctor. The FDA has a ban on accepting blood from any man who has had sex with a man once since 1977. There is an effort to change this law, based on the fact that it is not in relation to modern science. There are some links below to more information.
Questions about Season 2
- From Katelyn:
The morning after Helena is taken, Sarah leaves to meet Marion. Also we see Kira interacting with Cosima in the morning as well. I’m thinking Alison went home or something because they don’t show her at all after the dance party. SO WHY THE HELL DID NO ONE NOTICE HELENA WAS GONE?? More than anything why did Sarah not notice. Cosima is basically bed ridden and maybe Kira went straight from her bed to Cosima’s, but Sarah would have had to walk right past where Helena was sleeping and then would have walked right past the hat that Helena dropped in the hallway. When we see Sarah getting out of the car in front of Marion’s house, there doesn’t seem to be any fear or concern for Helena. This PAINS ME. Helena is constantly overlooked and forgotten by the other clones, but after Helena was basically inducted into clone club I thought things would turn around for her.
- From Heather (contributor from episode 13):
One of the commenters asked about why Henrik impregnated Helena with his sperm rather than Mark’s. I wouldn’t think it is too far out of the realm of expectations to assume that they (the male and female clones) are made from the same DNA (and thus, siblings.
- From Heather:
Can I suggest the scene between Felix and Paul in the apartment? That was a powerful scene (before the phone call with Sarah, anyway).
- From Janice:
My favorite moment was when Kira meets Cosima (I think their first meeting right?) and Cosima gives Kira a science lesson. The relationship between the two of them was just so sweet. I also really liked the scene late in the last episode where Kira wakes Cosima (or saves her?) and gives her the book that Prof. Duncan gave her. Kira obviously has some type of sixth sense or secret powers, and we all know how brilliant Cosima is. The geek and the monkey are just perfect together…they make the ultimate geek monkey family picture. I can see Cosima being a mentor to Kira in future episodes (if Cosima lives).
- From Bryan:
There are plenty of moments but I would have to narrow it down to the Sarah/Daniel/Helena moment. For some reason this is hitting most of my pleasure centres of my brain and I have to rewatch the scene again and again. I am sure I have seen that scene well over a dozen times and I have an inclination to see it again. For a time I kept the DVR at that scene so when I call up that episode it is right there.
Josh Vokey Interview
- From Jacqueline:
I am such a Cophine shipper but I would like to see something more between Scott and Cosima.
- From Bryan:
I got this on The Talk where the discussion was about Geraldo Rivera comments about women bringing youth to marriage – in other words their reproductive abilities. Needless to say The Talk women were irate. But Aisha made two keywords in a sentence that remind me of Orphan Black. I thought you might appreciate it.
- From Kazuo:
I was recently listening to your podcast for episode 202 and heard you mention Cosimas’ comment about “Clone Jail”.
One of the things I really love about the OB writing is the inside jokes that they scatter throughout the episodes. Some are pretty obvious to genre fans, and some only to fans of OB itself (puppy!), but every once in a while, they put in a joke that would probably only be caught by a very, very small percentage of the viewership. The clone jail line is one of these. It has a double meaning. It has the metaphorical meaning that most people got. Basically a place where Dyad could “hold” Cosima and keep an eye on her while she worked. But for those of us who grew up in the Riverdale neighbourhood of Toronto, it also has a second more literal meaning. The building used for the exterior shots of the older wing of Dyad is the old Don Jail building in Toronto. A facility that served as the primary jail-house for the city of Toronto for more than a century. It was shutdown a number of years ago and was recently acquired by Bridgepoint Health and renovated into the administrative wing for the hospital. Incidentally, the primary hospital building for Bridgepoint health serves as the exterior for the new Dyad wing and the interior for both Helena’s re-appearance at the end of 201 and the facility where Kira undergoes her procedure in 209.
- From Clair:
My question for season 3 is do you think there will be a love triangle between Sarah, Cal, and Paul? Season 1 made it seem like Sarah and Paul were a couple, but then Rachel came into the picture and Sarah and Paul were no more.
