Rachel has kidnapped Kira and Mrs. S.

All Paul does tell Sarah is that there is a black tie event at Dyad at which Rachel will be in attendance. Sarah decides that she needs to attend the event - Cosima who already is an invitee - but has no plan beyond knowing that she will need to get in there with concealed gun in hand. With this scant outline of a plan, Sarah enlists the help of Felix and the other clones, although Sarah does end up enlisting their help also without their knowledge. Meanwhile, Cosima has decided to trust Delphine, Cosima's grand plan which is to take control of her own "biology" in dealing with her illness, as opposed to providing Leakie with this information.

Beyond excellent season premiere.
19 April 2014 | by dancin-singin-queenSee all my reviews

One thing I have come to adore about this show is that it gets straight to the point and the story is so amusing by itself that it needs very little embellishment. This season premiere was a perfect little concoction of embellishment and raw story. I guess every season premiere needs some showiness to set the stage and attract people into the world of the show. Anyways, the episode is entertaining, of course brilliantly acted, and fabulous science fiction with an exceptional cast. Orphan Black is very entertaining and promising. Season 2 looks 2 steps up from the first season. I for one am definitely looking forward to watching this every week.
