ORPHAN BLACK Returns With Big Reveals, Contains Spoilers

Season two of the series hits the ground running with Sarah (Tatiana Maslany, Picture Day, Parks and Recreation) in a desperate race to find her missing daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler, Carrie). Her scorched earth tactics spark a war with pro-clone, Rachel (Maslany), dividing and imperiling all the clones. Co-creator Graeme Manson told The Hollywood Reporter, "[Sarah is] in a rather similar position than when we met her at the start of the series. She's on the run, she doesn't have her daughter, she barely has a dime in her pocket and has very few places to turn."

During the season premiere, big reveals were made about the characters and the trajectory of the show. Prepare for spoilers: for starters, Rachel doesn't have Kira; and, Kira is indeed trapped in a room with a faceless man, which was revealed in the final seconds of the episode. Next, Helena isn't actually dead. Even though she was shot at the end of season one, she managed to survive. Manson stated, "It was always part of the evil plan in the beginning. We knew we wanted to bring it down to a climax where Sarah kills Helena at the end of season one and we knew we wanted to bring her back." How she survived will be revealed later on in the season. Also, there is a modern-day group of Proletheans. Manson explains, "They're I supposed a more modern version of Tomas' world view and they're far more willing to use Science in the name or equate Science and religion as the same thing or conflate them or use Science to their own ends." And finally, Alison is very near to breaking. Manson hints, "Alison is in deep denial and she is wound tightly to the point of snapping. And when she does, sparks are going to fly."

Orphan Black airs on Saturdays at 9pm on BBC America.
