Clone Club Minutes: ‘I do not rot’ on Orphan Black

This week on Orphan Black, ‘I lived four months in broom closet, I do not rot.’

Helena is back in lock-up after killing the latest Castor clone as he begged her to do so. She’s not happy that Sarah, or Mrs. S, made a deal with Dyad back at the end of last season to capture Helena while Sarah and her daughter were set free. Sarah, sadly, is also now being held captive in the kingdom of Castors, errrr, the military compound by Dr. Virginia Coady. She’s in a cell right next to her beloved sister Helena. Good thing Sarah knows which buttons to push and makes sure Helena knows the Castors are their brothers. You’ll recall how loyal Helena has been to her ‘sisters.’ So Sarah takes a few hits to steal enough metal prongs for Helena to break them out of their shackles. Ya know, because she picks the locks and then slathers on enough butter to slide through the hole at the top of their heavy metal prison doors, then scales a wall to kill the security camera (and its operator).

In other news, the last Castor kid conceived from the original genome has been found, but sadly never made it out of infancy. Dr. Coady and co. now have the genome, but keep Sarah as another source of clone genetic material.

With improved health, Cosima is branching out to Internet dating on some site called Sapphire? She meets a lovely blonde named Shay for a drink at the most decidedly hipster bar in this random city all of our clones live in. Too bad somebody else is watching.

Back in the now clone-free zone, Art, Mrs. S and Felix join forces to find the sisters’ keepers. Gracie’s found Art and the group. After losing her baby, she is no use to her Prolethian family and of course can’t find her Castor-clone husband, Mark, who’s made his way back to the military operation.

Clone of the Week: That creepy scorpion hanging around Helena who apparently talks to her. We all know Helena is crazy, but she’s right: she’s been shot and stabbed and left for dead and doesn’t rot. Helena¬†certainly doesn’t have a problem with Sarah helping her break out of captivity and then leaving poor Sarah behind. Or does our craziest clone have a heart?
