Edited April 29, 2016, to add:

And now we know. The scene pictured above in the first photo aired last night in the third episode, The Stigmata of Progress. It is Helena with Donnie!

With the discovery of the maggot bots and the fact that one was implanted in Sarah, Alison and Donnie decide to dig up the body of Aldous Leekie to try and obtain a specimen for Cosima to study. Helena is busy in the kitchen eating for three when two detectives arrive to speak with Alison about a murder. When Donnie pops into the house for water, he notices what was going on and joins Helena and the two detectives for a hilarious, yet suspenseful scene. The photo shows Donnie and Helena at the door after the detectives leave.

Orphan Black – Season Three DVDs are out!

OBSeason3

Hooray! I am now at home after running errands and picking up the Season Three DVD set for Orphan Black which was just released. See you in a couple of days.

Only fooling. I was at a local Wal-Mart bright and early trying to beat the heat. Not on the shelf! Just then a clerk happened to walk by so I asked about the new Orphan Black just out today. She led me over to boxed DVDs on a cart and said that the third shift hadn’t unpacked them for whatever reason. Then the wonderful clerk, rummaged through the boxes until she found it for me. Kudos to her.

Orphan Black – Impersonation mixed with drama

Introduction

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:

Orphan Black: Alison Takes Charge

Alison, how you’ve changed.

Alison-and-Sarah

No more drinking yourself into oblivion and passing out, no more sticking your head in the sand and not wanting to know.

Alison is such a fun character. Hard to believe that I actually didn’t like her much in the beginning, but that soon ended.

This post on the Orphan Black Fansite blog recaps Alison’s progression from soccer mom into one tough lady who does what needs to be done (and more). It’s part of their Clone Wars and if you visit in the next few days, you can vote for Alison.

How to Be Awesome Like Alison Hendrix

Great post on Alison!

Welcome to the final day of Orphan Black Week on Girls Like Giants! We launched this discussion last week with a post on the patriarchal metaphor that structures the show. This week we’ve been featuring a series of “How To Be Awesome Like…” posts on the women of “clone club.” Today our final contributor, Rachel B., gets at the heart inside the neuroses of Alison Hendrix.

Guest Contributor Rachel B.

In Orphan Black’s first episode, Alison Hendrix is nothing more than a Social Security card in a safe deposit box. At first glance, this seems an apt metaphor for the woman herself: contained within the cold, sterile routine of her highly regulated suburban life. Unable to think or live outside the box. Indeed, when Felix asks Sarah early in Season 1 why she decides not to inform Alison about the more frightening characteristics of the as-yet unidentified Helena, Sarah explains that if…
