“Orphan Black” Season 3 is going to change up some relationships. When the clone drama returns, the Project Castor clones will be explored. The male clones (Ari Millen) know of each other, but it seems Mark wants to separate himself from the group. As Mark tries to distance himself, Delphine (Evelyne Brochu) will become more involved with the female clones (Tatiana Maslany) than ever before.
Millen revealed that while his clones don’t have the same circumstances as the Project Leda clones, there is still a sibling-like relationship. “We're a very close-knit unit, so the fun part for me was finding how these guys jerk around with each other and how they can express their brotherhood,” Millen told TV Guide.
While Rudy/Scarface might seem like the off-kilter one, apparently it’s Mark who is the loose cannon. The Prolethean desperately wants to leave the clones behind. "Mark very much wants a simple life," Millen said. "He wants out of Castor, he just wants a family, everything he doesn't have. Moving forward we're going to see that the things he wants aren't going to come easily."
While Mark attempts to move away from the clone life, Delphine is diving further into it. Evil clone Rachel may have transferred Cosima’s girlfriend to Germany, but “Orphan Black” Season 3 will bring Delphine back to Canada. However, as we speculated earlier, she’ll be leading the Dyad Institute. She’ll take Rachel’s place while she recovers from that pencil the clones lodged into her eye.
“Delphine’s job responsibilities have changed mainly because there is a position that has been vacated, because of the fall of Rachel,” executive producer John Fawcett told Entertainment Weekly. “Someone has had to step into Rachel’s chair, which may interfere — in a large degree — in her relationship with Cosima.”
It seems that sleeping with her boss won’t help Cosima. Delphine gets to decide what projects are researched and that’s where she and Cosima might find some disagreements. Delphine’s first priority likely will be finding a cure for Cosima’s illness. However, the clone might want to focus on other projects. Cophine shippers will have to wait until the spring to see if the lovers can work out their differences.
“Orphan Black” Season 3 premieres Saturday, April 18, on BBC America. Do you think Delphine and Cosima will survive this bump in the road? Sound off in the comments section below!
