Orphan Black - Who are "We?"
Really Mrs. S, who are "we?"
Did anyone else face palm themselves when Mrs. S answered the door at Peckham's (aka, Ethan Duncan) home when Sarah went knocking?
This lady is ubiquitous! (And you know she is on a mission because she is wearing her stealthy watch cap.)
Seriously, I am beginning to suspect they are doing some heavy back filling to the Orphan Black story line. The more we learn the denser it has become.
I think we got our first clue to the "back filling" when the character of Carlton (Roger Cross) was introduced recently. Secretly moving kids across the globe, whaaat?
Okay, about the "we." Here's the reference from Mrs. S herself, "He came to our side 20 years ago. We hid him in exchange for information about experiments in unborn children and a surrogate mother that ran away." Siobhan was referring to Duncan and Sarah muttered "Amelia" when she made the connection.
But, "our side." "We?" Who are "We?"
Here's another clue as to what Mrs. S has been up to all these years, "Just like you I got caught up in a struggle I didn't ask for." "Only I've been at it longer so I'm better at it than you."
Ha! Really? Like that network of bird watchers that was part of your organization? How did that work out for you Siobhan? Don't be so quick to dis Sarah's acumen.
I can't quite place where Mrs. S first met Paul. But as she cozied up to him in his car across the street she gave him a glib little smile (see above) and dropped a reference about Afghanistan being "all for naught."
She knows about Afghanistan???!!! How? In talking to Paul, she called Dyad a Hydra. Is she one of the heads?
Here's something a little disarming. During the episode we learned from Scott that stem cells were extracted from baby teeth probably from a niece or daughter. This is what helped develop a possible cure for Cosima. (Something Delphine wanted to be kept a secret.)
Are we talking about Kira? Who had Kira for the longest time before she was reunited with Sarah?
Mrs. S! Shocker!
Did Mrs. S trade these teeth to Dyad much like she exchanged Duncan all those years ago? What was the trade for? Does Mrs. S have someone inside Dyad or is she working for them?
Yes, I'm sounding a little frustrated. The density factor as far as the storyline is concerned is getting more convoluted with each passing episode.
That's why I suspect "back filling" in order to make things work and Mrs. S is the vehicle that drives this crazy train.
Theories and Hindenburg Moments.
So, did my theory about Duncan being the start of the Dyad group and the Proletheans have a Hindenburg moment (crash and burn.)? I posited that he gave birth to both movements in my blog post last week.
It seems so. He barely seems to be able to care for his birds let alone father two opposing movements in the Orphan Black mythology. So you know what that means...
So, if the reason for starting the clone research was to have, "Babies, little girls." What were these little girls for?
Post apocalyptic reseeding of the planet in answer to humanity being nearly wiped out? We are talking the military here (at least initially) and if the "other side" is experimenting with something that might wipe out mankind as we know it, then you better have an answer to that.
Clones and babies!
I had another theory where Helena once had a child or at least had developed a unhealthy attraction for Kira. No Hindenburg moment for this yet. But Helena seem to indicate she was just learning she was fertile.
Paul and Sarah working a long con? No Hindenburg moment yet but I think I smell gas (Not Helena's farts.) Someone might strike a match to this theory as Paul and Mrs. S had a conversation in the car that didn't shed any light that might help this theory.
Delphine a clone? This theory is still up in the air but so was the Hindenburg once.
Can we back track a little to Paul? What was his deal in Afghanistan?
At first I thought he must have gotten his men killed and that was his dirty little secret. Then I thought he must have been trafficking in war orphans for Dyad and that was his even dirtier little secret.
But Mrs. S said Afghanistan would have been for "naught" if his information got out. Was he rescuing kids? Are people being held as leverage if Paul's complicity in whatever comes out? Does Mrs. S know about this from Dyad? Information traded for what? (Arrgh!)
Who are these guys? Yes, one is Duncan and the other three are apparently his associates in science. Are we going to spend the rest of the season and next year chasing down the whereabouts of these three mystery guests? Arrgh!
Wait, I know who can find them, Mrs. S!
