Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - 2.01 Recap

***The following recap contains spoilers for Season Two Chapter 1 - There is also a spoiler-free review available. There is also a recap of the season one finale if you need a refresher.***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterOrphan Black: The Next Chapter finally returned today for season two. The story picks up where we last left everyone. After Charlotte revealed it to the press, the world is now in the know about the truth about the existence of clones. However, it’s not going as she had hoped. A lot of the clones are not happy after being lied to and many people still do not accept them.

Charlotte is helping run a crisis hotline trying to help clones come to terms with what they are. A woman calls that has locked herself in a bathroom to get away from her significant other, who is screaming at her for lying and accuses her of not even being human. Although hesitant to do it for fear police could escalate the situation, Charlotte coaxes an address out of the woman and Felix gives it to the police.

Vivi meets with Arun to tell him she is going on vacation. He questions if she is going to see the clones, but she is angry with them – their “pretend family” broke her cover, and she even had to save them. Having such a recognizable face doesn’t make for a good spy, and she can’t get a field mission and has been relegated to disk duty. She gives Arun the excuse for leaving that she wants decent espresso and Cuban food. All he cares is that she comes back again. Not used to talking to him in person, she isn’t sure if he’s being supportive and really cares or is just pitying her – she’s bad at flirting. He tells her that there are people who know how good she is and they will figure out a way around it. She’s not so sure but tells him that she will be back in five days.

Jenna Elfman & Keith Carradine Tease Fear the Walking Dead 7.03, This Sunday on AMC

Jenna Elfman and Keith CarradineWhen we first see June, played by Jenna Elfman, and John Dorie Senior, played by Keith Carradine, in this week's upcoming episode of Fear the Walking Dead, they are holed up in the bunker that Teddy (John Glover) built for after he set off the nuclear bomb. June recently lost her husband (Garret Dillahunt), John his son, so emotions will be running high. Elfman told SciFi Vision during a recent roundtable interview, that although it’s a blessing they have the bunker and each other, it has multiple layers. “She hasn't even properly had any time to mourn John at all, because it happened, and then she met John Senior, and then that is its own can of worms. Then, we come back [and] have to go face this enemy…and then, the nuclear bomb goes off. So, it's a pile-on situation emotionally for June… That we get to be the beneficiaries of [the bunker] and to be with family, John Dorie Senior, [is] a blessing. However, the two of them also have inner demons and trauma, and this is the worst possible environment.”

Carradine talked to SciFi Vision a bit about some of those demons. “Everybody's dealing with their foibles, and John has got a secret. You can only keep a secret like he's keeping for so long before it gets revealed and has to be dealt with.”

Review: Orphan Black: The Next Chapter Returns

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterI was so excited to hear that Orphan Black: The Next Chapter is back again. I very much enjoyed finding out out what happened after the television series and was curious where it would lead. The first book surprised me in the fact that they revealed to the world the truth about clones, which is something I never thought they would do. It, however, opened up new story possibilities and also introduced new clones and left it of course open for even more.

Season two picks up eight months after the events of season one. Although season one did explore some of the fallout from the world finding out the truth, now the world has had time to ruminate, and as expected, many people still do not accept the clones or treat them as equals. The sestras bear some responsibility in those who weren’t self-aware being unprepared, but can they themselves even deal with being ostracized? The beginning of season two starts to delve deeper into how the characters are coping with it, as well as with the idea that it’s not just them against the world anymore.

The actress admires her character’s vulnerabilities. “I think Izzy is traits that I wish I had. She has this really special ability to be vulnerable, and that's a really, really hard thing to do.”
