Orphan Black - Scarred by Many Past Frustrations - Advance Preview

   Orphan Black will continue its third season this Saturday on BBC America with an all new episode titled "Scarred by Many Past Frustrations". This episode will mark the mid season, time has passed so quickly. I can’t believe we’re already in the middle of season three. It has been such a great ride for now, the addition of the Castor clones and the new directions for Allison and Cosima really gave a new and interesting dynamic to the show.
   I like this season way better than last year. The tension is way more higher with Dr Coady and the male clones than with Dyad and Rachel. It’s a complete different universe, with the male clones and their closed and hierarchic relationships.

   The quest for the original samples has always been one of my favorite story in Orphan Black. I was so thrilled last week with the discovery of Johanssen’s baby. It'll open new horizons for the clones, but getting the original DNA and studying it will take lot of time so in the meantime, Coady and her clones will work on Helena and Sarah, as they’re now their prisoners. Sarah will finally meet Virginia Coady and she will make it clear why she’s so interested in her sister and her.
   Finally in "Scarred by Many Past Frustrations", Helena will have interaction with one of her sisters, Sarah. Helena had been kept alone for the four first episodes, with only the scorpion as a friend and of course her captivity has affected her. It’s not the first time Helena has been locked up and tortured, so it might bring bad memories. Her reunion with Sarah won’t be as sweet as I expected. Remember Helena knows Sarah was the one who gave her up to Castor… So if you expected sweet and happy reunion between the seestras, well, lower your expectations. Helena won’t be friendly the first time she’ll see Sarah.
   And here’s a list of what to expect from "Scarred by Many Past Frustrations" :

- We haven’t seen the last of Gracie ! She was cast out by her family, and so she will turn to someone we know for help. Honestly, I’ve never expected to see more of her, I thought her story ended with the loss of her baby. But the writers are planning something new, very interesting and quite shocking for the Prothelean girl. You won't see this one coming.
- One clone won’t show up during "Scarred by Many Past Frustrations" and another will have 48 hours of free time.
- Helena has a new plan and it will involve butter.
- Cosima will have her very first internet date ! Of course she’ll be anxious and nervous about it, anything can happen with those kind of dates (I know something about it…) but it will be actually quite surprising and not that bad. Two things I really didn't expect will happen during that date.
- Paul will be back and he will have a talk with Sarah about what he's done and what she's done. Paul always wants to make things clear to Sarah, we will understand more his actions. But still, I kinda hate him for being Castor and locking them up…
- Helena’ special friend will be back ! It will lead to some funny moments with Helena talking to him and Sarah being totally lost.
- Sarah’s first meeting with Dr Coady and other Castor doctors will go in a very Sarah Manning way. Actually, it made me think about the premiere when Allison played Sarah at Dyad, she was really in the character.
- Parsons will be mentioned several times, and we'll see him too.
- Sarah will learn what Helena did to Parsons, and she will tell Helena about their brothers. But will Helena believe her ?
- Sarah’s disappearance will make her friends and family worry.
- Mark will be questioned by his superiors about his wedding ring and his tattoo. He better has good explanations to give them because Coady will be suspicious of his activities back at the farm.
- One character will make a surprising and shocking choice.
- The sisters will prove they can be very resourceful together, and by themselves too. We've never doubted it but Castor will learn it.
- Felix and Mrs S will spend much time together in "Scarred by Many Past Frustrations" and Mrs S will shed some light on her past. Her revelation will touch Felix and it will change what he assumed of her. If you’re a huge fan of Mrs S and Felix as I am, you will love their scenes. I'm so glad we got to see more of their relationship.

    "Scarred by Many Past Frustrations" will be another epic and intense episode of Orphan Black. Sarah and Helena will be prisoners at the Castor base, they will do their best to work together to escape Castor. Sarah and Helena always have the most complex and interesting clone relationship of the show, "Scarred by Many Past Frustrations" will really focus on that.
 Also, for once, the episode will give the spotlight to Mrs S and Felix and their fun and dynamic mother/son relationship. Well, "Scarred by Many Past Frustrations" will explore those different relationships, particularly focused on how the past has influenced our beloved character.
   Are you excited about "Scarred by Many Past Frustrations" ? Are you thrilled or scared of Sarah and Helena locked up at the Castor base ? Hit the comments !

   And finally some quotes from "Scarred by Many Past Frustrations" :

"I'm not someone you can fight"
"Not so smart after all ?"
“Why are being so nice to me ?”
“Maybe you’re next”
“I’ll show you how it’s done”
