Devotees of the clone sisters of BBC America’s Orphan Black were treated to a slew of clips at Comic-Con this evening. All the sisters are played by Tatiana Maslany, but today’s most enthusiastically received compilation was “Seetra Sineestra,” a glimpse of the continuing misadventures of killer soccer mom sister Alison and husband Donnie Hendrix (Kristian Bruun). In the just-ended third season, the Hendrixes have taken in scary sister Helena, who has proved equally adept as a baby sitter and most fearsome protector of babies.
Co-creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson joined cast members Maslany, Bruun, Jordan Gavaris, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Ari Millen (who plays the sinister clone brothers) and Dylan Bruce for the festivities, but mum was definitely the word on what might be in store for the troupe in Season 4. Producers did say that Maslany would be helicoptering back to Canada as shooting for the new season proceeds.
If you haven’t caught up via On Demand or other means of delayed viewing, fear not. There will be no spoilers here, but we can say that things have become much clearer as Season 3 has played out — right up through numerous loose ends tied up by the season finale. That’s not to say all the convoluted plot lines have been resolved, but what the sinister corporate and military bad guys are up to is probably lot worse than you thought.
In addition to “Seetra Seenestra,” there’s an entertaining bloopers video below for the already initiated. If you’re new to the Clone Club, you can catch up with the first two seasons on iTunes, Amazon Prime and other digital platforms.
