Orphan Black S02E05 – Ipsa Scientia Potestas

In an interesting, and highly enjoyable episode, we get to spend more time with Helena (Tatiana Maslany) this week, as the clones react to the pressure that Rachel is starting to exert on Cosima, to bring Sarah to heel, and of course, turn over little Kira (Skyler Wexler).

Speaking of Kira, in her moments with Cal (Michiel Huisman), we’re starting to get a hint that he may not be as clean and straight arrow as we thought, when we were first introduced to him. In a quick shot, we see he has a gun in the camper van, as well as at least two different driver’s licences, there is one for New York that we see, and one for Washington that he gives a police officer.

Rachel while troubled by Daniel’s (Matthew Bennett) fate in the last episode, is quick to replace her monitor with Paul (Dylan Bruce), who doesn’t seem to be too troubled to be adding another clone notch to his belt.

Leekie (Matt Frewer) may be keeping life-saving info from Cosima and Delphine (Evelyne Brochu) at Rachel’s request, but, much like everyone else in this show, he may have his own agenda that may not be running parallel to the pro-clone’s.

In the Prolethian camp, we see a bit of punishment doled out to poor Gracie (Zoe de Grand Maison) by her father Henrik (Peter Outerbrige) for letting Helena escape…

Speaking of Helena, she has some great dialogue with both Sarah and Art (Kevin Hanchard) in this episode, and while she’s still a psycho, we get a look at how she interacts with the world a little better, and that she too will do what she has to in order to protect her family.


And poor Felix (Jordan Gavaris), he finally gets a chance to have a little fun but is rudely interrupted by an armed and dangerous Paul, who is intent on setting him up, under Rachel’s orders, to blackmail Sarah.

I’m fairly sure Rachel is underestimating Sarah, because we know she is not someone you want to have backed into a corner…

Catching the next time on Orphan Black clip at the end of the episode, looks like the web of conspiracy is spreading even further, I do hope that it doesn’t collapse under its own weight!

And of course, if you’ve watched our episode chatting with Kathryn Alexandre, Tatiana’s body double, you know the things to watch for to separate Tatiana from Kathryn!

We are now, at the halfway mark for Season 2, and you know everything is going to come down to Sarah and the clones squaring off against Rachel, with the menace of the Prolethians growing in the background!!!

Cannot wait to see what they do with the rest of the season!

Orphan Black airs Saturdays on Space.
