Orphan Black season 2 is nearing the end (unfortunately) with just one episode left–the finale, which airs on June 21.
A lot will undoubtedly happen in the finale.
Let’s take a look at what insight has emerged so far.
—–The description of the finale has come out. It’s titled “By Means Which Have Never Yet Been Tried.
“The war with Dyad is all but lost when Rachel’s latest ploy forces a broken Sarah to concede,” it says. “The Clone Club springs into action, uniting in a reckless gambit to save Sarah. As they fight to gain their freedom, Sarah encounters a new ally and uncovers a terrifying new dimension to the conspiracy.”
—–The finale is going to be “quite a ride,” says co-creator Graeme Manson.
“It is jam packed and it’s a thrill ride,” added co-creator John Fawcett to Entertainment Weekly. And it will include Paul. “Paul may be gone, but he is not forgotten, and he’s important,” Manson said.
—–It will also include Marian, the new bad boss
“Marian is definitely someone that is important to the story and to upcoming episodes and beyond,” Fawcett said. Marian was chilling again in episode 8, appearing briefly to see Rachel.
—–Helena will be prominent in the finale.
“Helena is on quite a journey this year. At the core of it is this idea that we set in motion kind of early on, that she’s got this nurturing drive that she’s been unable to ever express and the fact of Kira has opened her up. We really, really found that wonderful. It’s such an important part of the twin sisterhood,” Manson told Variety. “She may not understand at all the science that is going on with the Proletheans, but she knows the concept. She knows what she wants, and they better watch out.”
—–The point that Rachel is upset about not being able to be a mother is important
“For her, it’s the betrayal of Dyad, of being the insider. You’re the elite, you’re the one who knows everything, but she didn’t know that. So, that’s a betrayal for her,” Manson said. “To some degree, too, it’s also a bit of a slap in the face for Rachel to realize that this person that she despises, that she’s at war with, has something that she doesn’t. Whatever feelings of self-worth she’s built for herself, I think seeing that really chops her down,” Fawcett added.
—–Rachel tries to force Delphine to do something terrible
This is seen in the sneak peek of the finale, which aired after episode 9. “You used me,” Delphine says, crying. “None of this is personal,” says Rachel, cold as ever.
Sarah is seen in a video (or is it Rachel again?) saying that she surrenders.
—–Sarah’s guy friend is back
Not Paul. That other guy, the rich guy who has a cabin. He goes to Mrs S’ house. “I’m Kira’s father,” he says, much to her surprise.
