Orphan Black - Certain Agony of the Battlefield - Advance Preview

   Orphan Black will continue its amazing third season next Saturday on BBC America with an all new episode titled "Certain Agony of the Battlefield". I must admit, last week, I was a bit disappointed, IMO it was the weakest episode of the season so far. Things will change completely in "Certain Agony of the Battlefield".
   It’ll be a very dense episode, so exciting, with many twists and revelations. The combination of the different storylines (Sarah/Helena/Cosima/Allison), and Delphine and Rachel’s comebacks will really make this episode standout. From the beginning to the end, you’ll be on the edge of your seat.

   Last week, Paul started to suspect Dr Virginia Coady and her boys clones were up to no good. He didn’t like Sarah being taken to the base either, and so he won’t like what Dr Coady’s planned for Sarah now Helena had escaped. Paul will start to question Dr Coady’s and her actions at Castor.
   I’ve always been a huge fan of Paul. First of course because he’s very hot but that’s not all. Paul turned out to be a very complex and surprising character, I’ve enjoyed all the revelations about him (being a monitor, working with Rachel) but the fact he is Castor really blew me away last season.  Paul will finally explain why he came to Dyad and worked as Beth’s monitor in "Certain Agony of the Battlefield".
   Sarah will have the perfect line about him in this episode “You’re the worst Paul, because I don’t know where you stand”. It’s very accurate and that's what so interesting in Paul. He has always been hiding things from Sarah and the girls but still he has always protected them the way he could… Until he asked Mrs S for Helena. So, what will Paul do now ? Will he help Sarah or is his link to the brothers stronger ? You’ll find out in "Certain Agony of the Battlefield".
    And here’s a list of what to expect from "Certain Agony of the Battlefield" :

- Delphine is back ! Finally ! Sarah has disappeared, so Top Site is worried and Delphine will be so pissed Cosima didn't call her. Things will be tense between the ex lovers, but Tatiana Maslany and Evelyn Brochu have such a great chemistry, their scenes will be really great.
- Sarah will experience some very weird dreams. They will be quite revealing too and they might actually be her best help.
- We will see a young Castor family picture. Those boys looked like angels at that time.
- Gracie will feel better than last week. Cosima has worked on her sickness, what caused it and where it came from…  The answers will be shocking.
- Allison will meet with her drug lord/former High School flame again… And Donnie will start to be jealous of them.... Cute. And Allison will explain her plan to keep their business on moving forward. Her plan will be pretty good. But it feels like she forgets about her school trustee campaign...
- Tatiana Maslany will be absolutely amazing in one scene, even more amazing than usual. IMO, it’ll be one of her best performances in the entire show. It’s so crazy how she’s able to give so many feelings in one scene, playing two different characters. This clone confrontation will be amazing, it'll be so emotional and so powerful.
- Helena and her scorpion will have a rough time in the desert. It’ll be very hot out there and there's nothing but sand. Can Helena really survive alone ? Rudy will be sent to get her back. How much do you want to see a Helena/Rudy confrontation ?
- One character will make a drastic and brave choice.
- Last week, Cosima had a great first date with Shay… And in "Certain Agony of the Battlefield", Cosima will still be dating her, spending her time at her place. I’ve never wanted to see Cosima with anyone else than Delphine but it’ll actually feel very good to watch her being happy and kinky. But, there’s this weird vibe about Shay. Especially when she'll start asking about Cosima's lab and Sarah... Maybe it’s paranoia from me. And, the deal with the pictures taken during her date with Cosima will be resolved. We’ll know who took them.
- Kira will be back ! And not only in a dream. She’s always the cutest.
- So, Paul will suspect Dr Coady’s actions. He will look into her things and it’ll turn out she is hiding something, for a long time. And it's something huge. I’ve never expected that from her.
- As seen in the promo, Felix will visit Rachel, aka The Cyclope. Their scenes will be quite funny, because well there’s Felix and Rachel powerless in a wheelchair but Felix will also show a deeper side. Jordan Gavaris will be quite spectacular showing this side of Felix. He will visit Rachel to try to get more info on Castor, and a way to find Sarah. He really worries for his sister. And Rachel has to know something about Castor, as she won't be in a position to make threats like before, she'll have to answer questions.... if she can speak more than one word.
- There will be a declaration of love. It’s not yet the “I love you” but it’s close and it'll be as touching.
- Sarah will start feeling very sick after Dr Coady’s experiences. That nasty woman has done something wrong to our Sarah ! I don't like it, and of course, Paul won’t like it either.
- Someone will be played and that will put a lot of people at risk.
- We will finally find out why the male clones were collecting DNA samples from various women during their trips. I must admit I’ve never really guessed it, I hope you'll be as surprised as I was but it'll totally make sense. And of course, those answers will open new questions… Exciting questions.
- Donnie and Allison will have the best dance sequence of the entire show. Honestly, if you can watch it without laughing out loud, you're strong or quite depressed. It'll be hilarious. Those two are the best. They''ll be enjoying their new lives as drug dealers, especially Donnie.
- Scott will make a shocking discovery.
- I bet you always wanted to see Bubble’s right ? If so, well, you’ll be quite satisfied with "Certain Agony of the Battlefield".... : )
- Okay so now huge final teaser ! Don’t read unless you’re really want to know… Fine, your choice. There will be two major deaths in "Certain Agony of the Battlefield". Get your tissues.

   "Certain Agony of the Battlefield" might be the best episode of the season so far. It will definitely feel like a season finale, especially in the last ten minutes. I’m so glad it’s not the season finale because I just can’t get enough of this season. Everything is well constructed , all the episodes are brilliant.
   In "Certain Agony of the Battlefield", there will be many revelations and twists and pieces will start to come together, it will introduce new developments for the remaining episodes of the season. Clearly, it’s the episode we don’t want to miss ! Mark your calendar for next Saturday, and watch the excellent latest Orphan Black on BBC America.

   And finally some quotes from "Certain Agony of the Battlefield". Guess who'll say them :

"I miss you"
"Does that make me a monster ?"
"Make this right"
"A wilder version of me"
"What happened there ?"
