The clones are coming! The clones are coming!
That’s right, friends, it’s the final countdown: The highly anticipated third season of Orphan Black kicks off Saturday, April 18 (9 p.m. ET on Space at CTV), and you’re ready rejoin the #CloneClub. There’s just one problem: You’re not caught up on Season 2 yet. Geez…
No need to worry: We’ve got you covered.
Below is a chronological compilation of 36 GIFs to get you caught up on all the doppelgänger drama in the lives of Sarah Manning, her clones, her friends and her enemies in Season 2 of the kick-ass Canadian show. You know, kind of like your very own Coles–er, Clones Notes.
Ready to get caught up?
Sarah thought Rachel had her daughter, Kira. She asked Alison to get her a gun so she could bust into Dyad.
Sarah got in and pretended she was Cosima. Very crafty.
She stole Dr. Leekie’s passkey and got her hands on Rachel. But uh oh: Kira wasn’t there. She was kidnapped?
We also learn that since Aynsley is dead, Alison is now the lead in the community musical.
Sarah got abducted at a hotel while tracking down Kira. She discovered Mrs. S made it look like Kira had been kidnapped in order to get away. They find out Mrs. S.’s compatriots planned to sell Kira to the Proletheans, and Sarah and Kira escaped.
Helena was in the hospital but got abducted by one of Henrik Johanssen’s men. Johanssen planned to use Helena to create a baby.
Alison and Felix set a trap for Donnie to prove he’s Alison’s monitor.
We found out Cal Morrison is Kira’s father.
Prior to her big musical debut, Alison drank too much before and fell off the stage. Yikes.
Daniel tried to kidnap Sarah and Kira, but Cal saved them. Aw.
Helena escaped from Johanssen and his people, but she knew he took something from her. (It was her eggs to fertilize. Evil!)
Alison woke up in rehab after her drunk musical disaster. Donnie revealed she couldn’t see her kids unless she spent a week there. She wasn’t pleased.
Daniel caught Sarah snooping through Rachel’s apartment and put a serious hurt on her.
But Helena saved her and killed that jerk Daniel instead.
Paul threatened to frame Felix for the murder of a cop unless Sarah gave up Kira and Helena. She didn’t.
Sarah talked Helena out of killing Rachel.
Helena hit it off with a dude at a bar, but blew it by getting into a fight and getting arrested. Aw man.
Scott told Cosima and Delphine at Dyad that the stem cells don’t come from a clone but a clone’s daughter. Dun, dun dun!
Rachel found out that Dr. Leekie killed her mother. So she fired him of course.
Donnie found out Alison wasn’t lying about being probed after seeing her with Sarah. He confronted Dr. Leekie and accidentally killed him. Like, really killed him. Gross.
Felix housed a transgender clone named Tony.
Rachel took over at Dyad since Dr. Leekie was dead. Clone-creator Ethan tells Rachel that clones were made infertile by design. Sarah’s ability to give birth to Kira was an accident.
Donnie admits to Alison that he killed Dr. Leekie and the pair plan a cover-up.
Cosima revealed to Scott that she is dying. She later collapses in front of Delphine and Scott when they meet Ethan.
Kira gave up bone marrow to save aunt Cosima.
Rachel kidnapped Kira from the hospital while pretending to be Sarah.
Helena and Gracie learn they were implanted with Helena’s eggs that were fertilized by Henrik Johansson.
Helena, who was super miffed, burned down Henrik’s farm as revenge.
Ethan drank suicide tea instead of giving Rachel his code key. #RIP
Sarah was imprisoned by Rachel at Dyad, but escaped thanks to a well-placed pencil. Ouch! She saved Kira and met a Dyad exec named Marion who let them leave.
Helena finally met the rest of her clone sisters.
But then she got kidnapped by the military.
As the season ended, Marion told Sarah there are male clones. And former Prolethean Mark is one of them! WTF?
Now, bring on the new season!
Orphan Black Season 3 premieres Saturday, April 18th at 9 p.m. ET on Space and CTV. Want to catch up on Season 2 for real? Tune in early for the all-day Space marathon beginning at 8 a.m. ET.
