We're now past the one-month mark in the countdown to the return of BBC America's Orphan Black. Some artsy new posters for Season 2 have made their way online and they show off Tatiana Maslany in her various characters. The one above is Sarah, and the one below reveals the (partial) face of new character Rachel:
The profile is the same in each poster, but the faces are different, which is a nice nod to the DNA similarities of each member of the "Clone Club" while also recognizing how different each version is. The tagline "One. Of a Kind" is another great nod to that. You can check out the posters for Alison and Cosima over at TVLine.
Orphan Black comes from Graem Manson and John Fawcett and centers mainly on Sarah (Maslany), a woman who comes face to face with another woman who looks just like her and decides to assume her identity when the woman kills herself. From there, Sarah's thrust into a mysterious but dangerous world involving cloning. The first season has her befriending two other clones -- Alison and Cosima -- one of whom is a housewife while the other is a scientist. The plot continues to thicken throughout the first season as these three identical (in appearance anyway) women try to uncover the truth about their existence. (We get into more Season 1 spoilers ahead when we discuss the pictures so consider yourself spoiler warned if you're not caught up!)
BBC America says Season 2 of Orphan Black will hit the ground running with Sarah in a desperate race to find her missing daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler). This leads her to face off with ruthless pro-clone Rachel, whom we met at the end of last season...
Meanwhile, fellow Clones Alison and Cosima have their own problems to deal with as they attempt to recover from the events of Season 1. For Alison, that might involve... a funeral?
I'm actually guessing that's a funeral. Possibly Aynsley, Alison's frenemy, who died "mysteriously" from being choked to death by her garbage disposal. It's a fate Lionel Luther nearly suffered in similar fashion when his necktie met a paper shredder in Gremlins 2:
Except in Ainsley's case, Alison was there to watch her friend slowly suffocate as the disposal tugged at her scarf. My guess is she's playing the grief-stricken friend in that photo, while her husband Donnie pretends as well, for his own motives.
And then there's Cosima and Delphine (Evelyne Brochu), looking cozy...
I'd say it'll be interesting to see where their relationship picks up, but it seems like things are just fine for them there, no? Cosima does seem a little caught off guard by that kiss.
Last, but never least, we have Felix (Jordan Gavaris) and Sarah having what appears to be a wood-set picnic while Sarah looks at a map.
Or they're playing Hunger Games in the woods.
Orphan Black returns Saturday, April 19 at 9:00 p.m. Et on BBC America.
