Orphan Black – Impersonation mixed with drama

Community of Dreadful Fear and Hate


My jaw literally dropped during this scene! What a zinger, I couldn’t believe my ears.

Tonight’s episode, the seventh of Season Three, is my favorite so far this season. It was great to see the humor as Cosima impersonated Alison. My favorite episodes are usually ones with some light-hearted scenes as a bit of relief from the breathlessness of the drama.

And there was plenty of drama too:

Happy Birthdays! – Orphan Black Clones


Thanks to FLYFISHERJO for researching and recording birthdates and places! It will be a busy spring and just in time for Season Three.

Orphan Clones

If you can’t send a card to your favourite clone, just bake a cake and eat it in their honour! Post photos of the cakes on the Orphan Black Twitter or FB account just to be sure they know fans out there are celebrating.
There was no recorded birthdate for Rachel. Guess no one wants to celebrate her birthday. 😉
