Donnie, Paul, and Delphine have been tasked with keeping tabs on the clone club. Kris and Stephanie talk about the monitors’ ambiguity, their possible motivations, and why Donnie is a much better employee than either Paul or Delphine.
- The show seems to be big on ambiguity for the monitors. They all but tell us that Donnie is a monitor half-way through the season but don’t confirm it until the finale. Paul’s and Delphine’s loyalties are questionable throughout the season.
- They seem to be assigned to “match” the clones to which they are assigned.
- He’s been a monitor for the longest, but we’ve seen the least of him as a monitor
- The “best” monitor of the three. Alison immediately suspected him, but ended up apologizing for it.
- We don’t know why Donnie is a monitor. We’re curious how he got involved, because Alison said she’s known him since high school and it seems unlikely that he would have been a teenage monitor.
- Was with Beth for two years, but almost immediately falls for Sarah.
- He has a somewhat abrupt transition from “terminator Paul” to “smooshy mooshy Paul”. In one episode he’s ready to kill Sarah, and in the next, he’s nuzzling her like a house cat.
- We only have pieces of Paul’s backstory. We know that he has military training and is being blackmailed into service as a monitor because of an incident involving friendly fire.
- We’re allowed to see the most of her story arc and perspective and is therefore (to us) the most sympathetic monitor.
- What’s the story with her and Leekie? Clearly, they have a relationship of some kind, but we think she looks uncomfortable in their interactions.
- Why is she a monitor? Is/was she just in it for the science? As a monitor, she is either terrible or very very good.
