This week on Orphan Black, it’s a dead body not a bag of weed, and also a family affair.

This week on Orphan Black, it’s a dead body not a bag of weed. As you’ll recall a Castor bro has been killed, or ok, died at the hands of Felix and Sarah. While everyone’s looking for the key to the clones, Cosima thinks it may be a good idea to examine his brain. Luckily Art’s still on board with Sarah’s plan and is let in on everyone’s apparent plan to find the original clone DNA.

Meanwhile, Gracie’s still on the run with her Castor-clone-boo from Prolethian-land, Mark, and now he’s telling her the truth that her dad stole valuable scientific material and the army sent him in to handle the situation.  Sarah’s hot on their trail as she knows Mark can lead her to Helena who is still being held captive by Mark’s remaining clone-kin.

Over in the land of soccer moms and selling weed, Allison and her hubby are still campaigning to save the school district, now with an extra edge. They’ve successfully taken over Ramon’s drug deals to her fellow soccer moms in order to get their support.

Clone of the week: Cosima.  Who brazenly ripped open the Castor Cadaver and brought us the biggest news of the season so far.  Not, entirely, shockingly the two sets male and female clones are siblings.  Unfortunately, Orphan Black opens my own feminist can of worms by making Sarah plead for her life with mark by declaring them family, and it works.  But, really, Cosima wins this week because in scenes from next week’s Orphan Black she may just be making the jump to spice up her love life on an off-brand-for-tv version of Tindr.  Swipe right.
