Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) and Mrs. S (Maria Doyle Kennedy) starts to be dubious of where Alison’s loyalty truly lies in brand new “Orphan Black” airing tonight.
Last week’s episode saw Sarah and Cosima continue to struggle in dealing with the consequences of their actions which eventually led to the death of Kendall Malone (Alison Steadman). There was a time that the two even contemplated in ending their lives over the guilt and the lack of will to move on with their seemingly never-ending mishaps. Fortunately, Felix (Jordan Gavaris) was able to talk them out of the deed.
Moving forward to this upcoming episode, things will not also go well with Alison as she starts to be very concerned about Donnie (Kristian Bruun) with regards to the Neolution threats against him. This leads to Sarah and Mrs. S to start questioning her real intentions and whether she is an ally or foe.
Elsewhere in the chapter titled “The Redesigns of Natural Objects,” Siobhan (Maria Doyle Kennedy) will be making her move against Sarah while the latter is distracted. Cosima and Susan Duncan (Rosemary Dunsmore) on the other hand pushes through with their final attempt in discovering a cure.
Meanwhile, lead star Maslany was recently in Cannes where she was asked by various media outlets (Entertainment Weekly) about her challenging role in “Orphan Black.” The show’s narrative already transcend boundaries in itself and Maslany’s need to play various and very distinct characters make it all the more demanding. Despite all this, the actress is embracing the responsibility and stepping up to the plate.
“I think Cosima was my ‘in,’ first season. I was like, ‘I get her, I know her, we’re very similar,'” Maslany explained. “Now, Sarah feels more close to me, Alison at times feels very close to me, Helena for different reasons feels close to me I won’t go into that [laughs].”
“But then I get to play Krystal who is so far from me but I’m obsessed with her,” she furthered. “I love her, she’s so much fun. I would never get cast as that character, ever. So it’s great to get to have that chance.”
The Canadian thespian is at Cannes to promote her newest flick dubbed “Two Lovers and a Bear” opposite Dane DeHaan.
“Orphan Black” season 4 airs every Thursday night, 10 p.m. EST on BBC America.
