We’ve already been introduced to a slew of clones on Orphan Black that we really like and care for — Sarah Manning, Cosima Niehaus, and Alison Hendrix (all played by Tatiana Maslany) — as well as others who we could certainly live without, like Helena, and Rachel Duncan. And let’s not forget those ladies who have already passed on, such as Beth Childs, Katja Obinger, and Jennifer Fitzsimmons.
Jennifer was briefly introduced in Season 1, though Sarah, Cosima, and the others became much more aware of her after her death. It turns out the high school teacher was plagued by the same respiratory illness that’s making Cosima sick and also killed Katja.
Delphine gave Cosima a series of Jennifer’s video diaries chronicling the sickness and ultimately, the end of her life. We learned that Jennifer was taken to the Dyad Institute for treatments courtesy of Dr. Leekie, but they only made her sicker. In a shocking revelation, Jennifer declared in her final video entry that Dr. Leekie had lied to her, and she came to terms with her own mortality.
So, sadly, Jennifer has come and gone, but her existence caused us to wonder if we'll be meeting any other clones over the course of Season 2. Entertainment Weekly interviewed Orphan Black co-creator Graeme Manson earlier this month, and reporter Dalton Ross asked him point-blank if we will be meeting any live clones in the remaining episode of the BBC America hit’s sophomore season.
“Like we always say, we’re a clone show,” Graeme cryptically declared all while cleverly avoiding the query at hand. If we’re being honest, that sounds like a yes to us, but we’ll just have to wait and watch the rest of the Season 2 drama unfold.
Do you predict that we’ll be meeting any additional clones — alive or dead — in Orphan Black Season 2? Feel free to share your thoughts and theories below!
Orphan Black Season 2 airs Saturday nights at 9 p.m. ET on BBC America.
