Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 8 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterToday Serial Box released the eighth episode of Orphan Black: The Next Chapter. The episode is titled “A Harvest of Survivors” and was written by Madeline Ashby.

Once I started it, I quickly realized that this was the episode I had been waiting for. It was so great to have Vivi meet the other clones in person and see everyone’s reactions. I was surprised Sarah took to her fairly quickly.

Maslany was, as always, brilliant in her reading, bringing all the characters to life. It’s easy to differentiate between clones by her voice, even without being able to see them.

Speaking of seeing them, there are so many wonderful scenes in this episode that I would love to be able to see on television. I can so easily envision Alison and Donnie in the sex club, which was so funny to hear about. All of the characters in the book continue to feel so much like the originals.

While the main part of the episode was dealing with the clones’ next step, another important part was, of course, Rachel’s meeting with Davis. I enjoyed her cunning, but was surprised and somewhat confused by her reaction to not wanting him to hurt Kira. I feel like there must be some story there that as a viewer (and reader) we haven’t been privy to that must have taken place between the series and the book. This ended up being the most intriguing part to me, because it was so unexpected.

Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 7 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterToday, Serial Box released an all-new episode of Orphan Black: The Next Chapter, titled “Best Learn to Cope,” written by Lindsay Smith. After so much happened in the last episode, I was excited to know what would come next, probably the most about what would happen to Kira and Em. While there weren't as many revelations in this episode as some of the previous ones, there was a fair bit of action, and a good chunk of it was with the two girls. Kira really stepped up and made her own decisions about what she was willing to risk, which I appreciate. I also enjoyed getting to see someone new be brought into Clone Club in the way she told Em. She definitely had a different reaction than most people do. Their friendship and trust is becoming more important as the story goes on. I’m also interested in seeing if Sauveteer survives the trip to the hospital.

The other big section of the episode was Vivi trying to retrieve Cosima. I’m not sure she was doing it just to save her, as she had things to gain, but her impromptu mission with Jay was fun to see go down, and of course Vivi kicking ass is always entertaining. Her interactions with Jay on the earbud were also amusing.

Probably the main revelation we did get in the episode, however, is that the swarms of bugs, which seem to be the delivery system of the viruses, aren’t actually insects at all, but rather drones. However, I didn’t find that to be much of a surprise. It’s also obviously confirmed that Sauveteer and the clones in Boston were both attacked by the same people. There’s also the idea that Dana, or whichever clone first contracted the sickness, was originally bitten, since they both have a similar rash.

Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 6 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterThe hiatus over, today Serial Box releases episode six of the audio series Orphan Black: Next Chapter, narrated by Tatiana Maslany. The episode is titled “What a Living World Will Demand” and written by Heli Kennedy.

I was so excited for the series to be back after the cliffhanger from episode five, and thankfully the episode was fantastic. Performance-wise, this episode was definitely one of my favorites, because Maslany vocally performs as quite a few clones in this episode, including not only the addition of Helena and Krystal, but also more clones we’ve never encountered before. Felix also makes an appearance, which was a nice surprise.

The episode is a trip, as there is a lot going on simultaneously, which I loved. In one storyline you have Charlotte, who is still quite sick, and Alison, who want to come back home, and in another you have Sarah and Delphine who are stuck at the house after having been accosted by the press. Everything is crazy now that news of clones is out. Not everyone is happy with the revelation either, and clones are being attacked.

Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 5 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterToday Serial Box released the fifth episode of Orphan Black: The Next Chapter, titled “Every Child is Cast from Paradise,” by Madeline Ashby.

This week’s episode is mostly about the characters trying to get information from each other. I’m happy to finally see Sarah and Delphine talking to Vivi, even if they haven’t really uncovered much yet. Not only that, but it looks like Art may finally have to let Jay in on Clone Club. I was curious if he could make up some kind of cover story on the fly that was believable, but it seems like it is going the other direction. I do feel that he can trust her, however. It is fun though to see someone else like he was back in the first season of the series, confused that nothing adds up. Also, how far will he go to get Cosima back?

As a side note, Sarah realizing right away that it was Vivi pretending to be Cosima and tricking her was great, as was the information about the musical security system Cosima and Delphine have set up. Even if it wasn’t really important to the story, it was still entertaining.

Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 4 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterToday Serial Box released the fourth episode of Orphan Black: The Next Chapter, “To Ignore the Oblivious,” by Lindsay Smith.

The last episode left off with quite the cliffhanger, with Charlotte stuck at the hospital with the clone Dana, potentially exposed to the unknown illness with no cure. This episode takes straight off from there and is filled with just as much suspense.

This episode really starts to connect the dots to all the puzzle pieces, showing how everything is related. Not only is it confirmed that Dana and her sisters (yes there’re more!) were the target of GRIT’s genetic attack, but in my opinion, it seems like there could potentially be a connection to GeneKeep where Kira is working. While trying to stay away from the whole clone business, did she inadvertently put herself back in the middle? Regardless, I will say that her storyline has gotten much more interesting this episode.

I was really happy this time to get Tatiana Maslany’s performance in time for the review, which I didn’t last time. It really makes a difference hearing her voice the characters. I was also pleasantly surprised that we got another familiar face this episode, even if only briefly.

Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 3 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterToday Serial Box releases episode three of Orphan Black: The Next Chapter, “Bread and Pottages,” by E.C. Meyers.

The episode is another strong one, and readers finally get a bunch of clones talking together at the same time (although via video chat). Unfortunately, I did not receive audio this time with the episode, so I haven’t heard the scene yet, but I am really eager to hear Tatiana Maslany’s recording of it. It adds so much.

In the third episode, the stakes are getting higher as more is discovered about the explosion at GRIT, and the clones could all be in a lot of danger. I really enjoyed Art’s conversation with Jay in the episode, trying to steer her away from any useful information. It just really brings me back to the television series.

I’m also so glad that Vivi is getting more information about her sisters and realizing she isn’t crazy. At some point, the next step will be for her to confront the other clones, and I’m really excited for that. I do wish, however, that the episode had showed Vivi’s reaction to the what she found out.

Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 2 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterToday Serial Box releases episode two of Orphan Black: The Next Chapter, a continuation of the popular BBC America television series. The second episode is written by Mishell Baker, a different author than the first (written by Malka Older). I liked the idea from the beginning that they were bringing in other writers, as they often do with episodes of television series, but I was afraid it would not blend well together. Thankfully it does, and it feels like one complete story.

I was really happy to have more characters from the original series return, especially Alison. The author has her down to a T. I always loved the show, and as likely most people reading the series, I am doing so to read about the original characters’ adventures rather than just about the universe of the show.

I love how the story continues to feel like it’s just another episode of the series. The idea of weaving in evidence from the case that started a lot of the problems for the clones is a cool idea, and the border patrol really raises the stakes.

Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 1, Part 2 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterToday Serial Box releases part two of the first episode of Orphan Black: The Next Chapter. I was really impressed by the first part of the episode, though it was mostly introduction and fairly short. The second part is a bit longer and is when the real meat of the story begins.

I love how with Tatiana Maslany reading the story, even though it isn’t on television, you can still feel each clone’s personality. It's great to hear about the original clones, and I am especially eager to hear about Sarah and Allison as the season continues. Plus, I think it will be even more fun when multiple clones are together in the same scene interacting. Still, it's really appealing that there is a new clone as a main character, and Vivi is very likable and a lot different from the others we know.
