Howdy, listeners! It’s the penultimate episode of season 5 (we think) and the penultimate episode of the whole show (most likely). We don’t know how, or why, but Ms. S never made it past the opening credits. Luckily, Sarah has broken Helena out of The Dyad and if anyone can dispense revenge/justice it is her. Thanks for listening!
Welcome to season 5 episode 8, folks! Everyone’s favorite brother is back from doing recon and is ready to present his new gallery, themed on the sistras. Hopefully, Sarah and Ms. S can figure out their drama before Felix’s art suffers because of the distraction. Now, we just need to get Kira back (again, again..) Thanks for listening!
It’s season 5 episode 7 and Alison is finally back in our lives! She even has some new ink and a new outlook on her “shadow self”. Meanwhile, Sarah and Cosima are still tracking down some dirt on PT and his island of horror. Kira has been kidnapped again so we definitely need any help we can get! Thanks for listening.
Welcome to season 5 episode 6 of Orphan Black! Alison is still out on vacation, singing classic vacation tunes. Cosima, with a little help from everyone’s favorite ghost/rebel, escapes from a basement prison. Meanwhile, Sarah and Art are getting “help” from our very own ethical cosmetics enthusiast Crystal.
It’s season 5 episode 5 and Cosima is the star of the show! PT and his cabal of eugenics-obsessed scientists are holding council on the spooky island. Cosima talks her way into the dinner party but the situation isn’t quite as it appears. Can she make it out with her life? Has she bitten off more than she can chew? Thanks for listening!
Welcome to season 5 episode 4, folks! Sarah and Ms. S are out on a special mission, hunting down some leverage to hold over Rachel’s head. Along the way, Sarah and Helaina are reunited and share a heartfelt moment. Meanwhile, Cosima is sneaking around a spooky island and meeting a “bear” with our friend Mud. Thanks for listening!
Welcome to season 5 episode 3 of Orphan Black! It’s a much-needed and long-awaited Alison episode this week and we even get some juicy flashbacks. Alison has a lot of skeletons in her closet. That is partly a metaphor but mostly just a cold hard fact. For better or for worse, Alison is steadying herself and setting her sights on action, ready to bring her family back into the fold. Thanks for listening!
Season 5 episode 2 is here! Sarah is scrambling to keep Kira out of Rachel’s grasp but the walls are closing in. All of the sistras are being trapped or manipulated in one way or another, except for maybe Helaina? We don’t quite know where she and Donnie are at the moment. On the bright side, Cosima has a cure in her body and is rubbing shoulders with the tip-top of the Neolution pecking order. Thanks for listening!
And here we are in season 5 episode 1! Wow stuff is gettin’ kind of weird. Sarah is limping, bleeding and beaten, through a strange forest. But, she isn’t alone. Alison is abducted by Art’s terrible and rude new “partner”. Meanwhile, Cosima seems to be a little drunk on a cool evil-genius science mystery. Thanks for listening!
It’s time for the season 4 wrap-up! Big thanks to all the fans who submitted questions for us to answer. Next week begins the fifth and maybe or maybe not final season of Orphan Black.
As a quick note: the most recent allegations against Joss Whedon came out between recording and releasing this episode. We fully support and stand with Charisma, Ray, Amber, Michelle, and all those who have joined them in sharing/empowering the truth of their experiences. We will have a chance to discuss it further in our next recording.
Thanks for listening.
