Do you hate the dentist? Then this is not the Orphan Black episode for you.
Sarah’s discovery that she’s playing host to one of those totally unharmless, definitely not run-of-the-mill maggot-bots (they showed that video from last week again, ugh) leads her to try and find out more about what it is and, more importantly, get it out of her face. But that, like all things on this show, leads her and Team Leda into more troublesome territory with Neolution and Topside. Nice to see you again, Ferdinand!

It was another episode that contained that classic Orphan Black mix of humor, heart, and horror, as deliciously odd couple Donnie and Alison went for an ultrasound, Beth and MK had a tearful goodbye in flashback form, and Sarah discovered one of those gnarly Neolution tech implants moving around inside of her cheek!
After focusing almost exclusively on Beth last week, our second entry into season 4 caught us up with the rest of the key clones — and yet another nefarious threat against them.
“Transgressive Border Crossing” shed more light into Beth’s final days, and also added “maggot-bots” into the show’s lexicon and my future nightmares (did anyone else have to cover their eyes?). Suffice to say, this gives “bugged” a whole new meaning.
Welcome back, Clone Clubbers! I’m your new Orphan Black recapper and a card-carrying member of the Club whose favorite sestra changes by the episode, or also the minute (though it often lands on Helena).

Orphan Black turned back the clock for its season 4 premiere. The episode was actually a prequel installment, going all the way back to before the events of the series debut as we saw what led Beth Childs to throw herself in front of that train— the event that led to protagonist Sarah Manning assuming Beth’s identity.
Orphan Black kicks off its fourth season on April 14, and a retro vibe means that everything old from season 1 will feel new again. We spoke to star Jordan Gavaris to get his take on the new season as well as some intel on what we can expect in the future for fan-favorite Felix.
All is fair in love and “sestra“-hood, and BBC America continues to tease Orphan Black fans with season 4 tidbits, this time debuting a sneak peak at the first four minutes of the upcoming season premiere.
How many lives does Orphan Black have left to live? The low-fi sci-fi serial has remained resonant thanks to Tatiana Maslany’s multiplicity of performances and clever outsider shadings. But it’s struggled to consistently generate the inspired zap from the show’s lightning-strike, wholly realized 2013 debut.
