ORPHAN BLACK’s Episodic Posters are the Perfect Decoration for Your Clone Clubhouse
By Alicia Lutes on May 8, 2014
Who loves ya, Clone Club? BBC America, baby. Because the home of all things Orphan Black know your thirst for all things Tatiana Maslany is arguably unquenchable, they’ve decided to release some brand new, minimalist and funky-cool episodic posters dedicated to the second season of the sci-fi series. And, surprise, surprise, they’re badass as all get-out.
The current posters — a collection of which will grow with each subsequent episode of season two — are based on the last 3 episodes in addition to the upcoming episode 4, “Governed As It Were By Chance.” The minimalist posters highlight particular objects seen in each episode that either mark a turning point or highlight a change we get to see play out on screen. And lord knows there are plenty of those hanging around in Anywhere-Non-Descript North America where the show takes place.
The first one, for example, highlights the bright green, shiny-and-new clone phones (brought to us by the Number One member of the Clone Club, Felix) that we saw in “Nature Under Constraint and Vexed,” marking a new beginning for our sestrahood like no other. Bye, bye, pink Clone Club phone cases.
The second one, pegged to “Governed By Sound Reason and True Religion” focuses on those nouveau Proletheans over here in North America (a.k.a. not Tomas). With Henrik Johanssen (Peter Outerbridge)’s moral apex found in the teachings of the Old World with the M.I.T.-honed scientific thought of the New, these latest batch of Proletheans are way more deadly and terrifying than their hokey Ukrainian predecessors.
The third one, highlighting the birdwatcher’s home from “Mingling Its Own Nature With It,” highlights ground zero of where the shit hit the fan for Sarah, Kira, and Mrs. S. — and gave us even more questions about Mrs. S and Project LEDA.
The fourth one, pegged to the upcoming “Governed As It Were By Chance,” features an origami…something. But even though we know the answer to this image’s mystery, we’re not going to tell you. You’ll just have to tune into our recaps for that.
Click onward and make ‘em full-sized; they’re pretty big, which is great for those of you who like to print things out.
Which one’s your favorite? Let us know in the comments.
