Out of the Black

Holy shit guys. Wait, first, spoilers for last week’s “Orphan Black” ahead. OK, we all clear? Good. Then let me say: It’s alive! ALIVE! The Cophine fandom LIVES! You know, it’s hard to think of another instance where we (potentially) got one back from the Bury Your Gays trope. Yet here we are, on the verge of erasing Dr. Delphine Cormier from the Dead Lesbian Syndrome rolls. And it’s so terribly clever.

I had resigned myself, after the week’s before episode, to the fact that the blonde French doctor was, indeed gone. Cosima’s breakdown when Evie Cho told her as much was one of the most gut-wrenching, soul-shaking cries I’ve ever heard uttered from a human person. Slow and forever clap for Tatiana Maslany.

But then, this week. Holy shit, guys.

This season has been *insert fire emoji here* and I don’t mind saying it. Not one bit. Now, let’s go find our girl, eh?

Last week's episode was intense, indeed. I do hope we will see Delphine again. BTW, what happened to Shaye? Am I the only one who thinks the show ventured into "bisexuality as shorthand for self-destruction" territory in that scene of Sarah in the bar? It seemed a little cheap to me.

It was well done. After the creators telling us she was definitely dead and gone, I'm glad that it might not be true. Go get your girl indeed!
