Welcome to the Orphan Black Double Take where I give you my first impressions right after seeing the episode titled “The Scandal of Altruism” for the first time. I’m creating these short posts to encourage listener feedback by asking questions about the episode.

Feedback deadline is Sunday morning at 9am Eastern Time.

This week’s questions are…

1) Was Evie telling the truth about Delphine being dead?

2) What will happen now with Susan Duncan?

3) What’s next for Clone Club?

Send me your thought about these questions or any other part of this latest episode of Orphan Black.

I’d like to thank everyone who has subscribed to this podcast and encourage you to join the discussion by sending in your feedback by calling +1-805-910-7656 or by e-mailing me at


  1. 1 – No, I go along with Krystal -she says shot not killed.
    2 – Clone club will let her go as they believe she has no relevance, However Ferdinand will drag them back in so he can rescue Rachel.
    3 – They have to work out what assets they still have now that Cosima’s research and Kendall’s genome have been destroyed. There is Sarah’s bot that will be useful along with the Sarah/Helena/Kira variant genome.

    Additional comment – Mrs S is going to go hunting – Evie Cho and Duko have a fatal problem, Especially since they let Cosima witness Kendall’s death at their hands and let her live.

  2. Hi Mark, This episode was one of the best of the series. 1) Evil Cho probably was not telling the truth about Delphine. She just wanted to twist the knife in Cosima. It is possible Delphine is being held captive. Possibly in the same location as Rachel. 2) Susan and Clone Club may have to form an uneasy alliance. Since she is the creator of the clones they need her knowledge. 3) I think initially Clone Club will not know what to do. I hope Cosima does not give up and stop trying. I have a few other thoughts. Mk was tracking Sarah and I presume the other clones. I wonder if she ever got into the underground lab and made a copy of the science. Hopefully the bot from Sarah that Cosima swiped will be helpful. I wonder what will be the fallout between Sarah and Mrs. S because Kendall has been killed. I find it suspicious that Adele has left. Suddenly she is on the scene and now she is gone. I totally called Beth giving Evil Cho the scar. This is the first OB prediction I have been right about. This episode was like a season finale. It scares me to think what the final 4 episodes of the season will bring.

  3. Hi Mark

    This was one of the most emotional and best episodes of Orphan Black. I am really worried about Cosima. Will Clone Club find a cure for her in time?

    Well on to the questions…

    1) I think Evie was telling the truth about Delphine because Krystal who has nothing to hide, also saw Delphine shot for dead.

    2) I think Susan Duncan will join forces with Clone Club and help them to find the cure for Cosima, Rachel and Ira. For her it is all about the science. That said I do think one of the clones will die this season.

    3) Well it looks like Sarah is going to gonna go on a very destructive binger and Rachel is going to try and to find out how to free herself from her imprisonment. That said, I think that maybe the bot that was in Sarah’s cheek which was supposed to make her sick can help cure Cosima. I also hope that Helena’s babies could help cure Cosima but that might come too late. It doesn’t look like Helena will not give birth to the twins for several months. The race for a cure is on.
