This week on Orphan Black a little book becomes a bigger problem.

This week on Orphan Black, a little book becomes a bigger and bigger problem. Let’s start at the beginning, ok, more like last week, but Cosima has become crazy in love again. While, last season, the resident Clone Club dread-head found herself sleeping with the, minor, enemy, this season Cosima’s found herself again In a love affair that could jeopardize she and her sisters. Shay is still keeping Cosima close. Unfortunately for Cosima’s luck in love, Shay is able to creep into Cosima’s work-life and stealthily trick fellow-scientist Scott and getting the all-powerful copy of the Island of Dr. Moreau that holds the key to clonedom.

Meanwhile, we’re finally getting new-ish clones. Do you remember bubbly-blonde Crystal from the season preview? Me neither, but she’s now officially joined the Clone Club as a doctor Delphine is personally keeping an eye on. While Delphine decided this clone is far more naive than the others may have ever been, we’re not sure in this case looks aren’t deceiving and Crystal knows far more than she’s letting on.

Sadly, Rachel is the one clone to rule them all right now, and she knows it. Scott revealed that Rachel has the key to the code hidden in the pages of The Island of Dr. Moreau. As a bargaining chip, Sarah agrees and the two share a lovely Skype chat, bit to be outdone by Sarah’s Skype chat with Cosima. While the latter revealed a bit more about the tough timeframe of Cosima’s medical condition, the first Skype chat leaves us with the biggest clue to the clone conundrum yet. As promised, Rachel reveals the first lines of the book’s code tells of things falling down in ‘Londontown,’ and a Castor awakening. Hopefully this first clue can awaken some answers for next week’s Clone Club Minutes when we’ll likely learn more about how Virginia Coady is still alive and what everyone’s doing at ‘the Cantina,’ you know, the convenient desert oasis that seems to be a Clone-related hang out.

Clone of the Week: Cosima. The poor woman has been on a crash course with death and somehow is still alive and still the object of attracting for confounding scientists and beautiful strangers. She’s also evidence that even the smartest people aren’t always those most likely to survive.
