Did ORPHAN BLACK Just Drop a Multi-Clone Finale Scene Bomb on Us?
By Alicia Lutes on June 2, 2014
Well THIS sounds like it’s going to be epic as all get-out: according to the press release for the DVD and Blu-Ray release of Orphan Black‘s season season was a sort of big reveal about the June 21st finale: we’re going to get four clones in a single scene! Say what?!
That’s right: buried within the announcement that the sestrahood like no other will be getting a physical disc release on July 15th (a.k.a. next month) were details about the additional features the release is set to include that highlighted the aforementioned, never-been-done-before Tatiana MaslanyFest. Alongside the 10 episodes of this currently insane (in the best way) season, the release states that “BBC Home Entertainment is giving the audience even more to explore with extra features and exclusive content including an extended version” …of something that was apparently cut off when this sentence was never finished.
However, the line that immediately follows expands upon this mystery a bit more, adding that “This behind the scenes vignette shows how the 4-clone scene from the the season two finale was conceived and created, providing an exclusive look at never-seen-before on-set footage with running commentary from co-creator and writer Graeme Manson and co-creator and director John Fawcett sharing their vision of the scene.”
So — we’re going to see four of the clones together. But there are 5 clones we’re dealing with, currently: Sarah Manning, Helena, Rachel Duncan, Cosima Niehaus, and Alison Hendrix. What does this mean? Will one of them… not survive the season? The prospect of losing a clone feels rather likely — even though we’re terrified at which clone it may be, given the teaser for this week’s upcoming episode. As if fans haven’t had a crazy season already.
What do you think of the news that there will be an as-yet-to-be-done 4-clone mega scene in our future? Sound off in the comments below.
