This Exclusive "Orphan Black" Poster Is Full Of Season 2 Clues

Let's break down the eight hints embedded in this all-new poster for Orphan Black's second season, shall we?

BBC America

The second season of Orphan Black premieres April 19 on BBC America and BuzzFeed scored an exclusive poster that's full of hidden secrets.

At first look, the conspiracy thriller's usual suspects are all there: devious doctor Aldous Leekie (Matt Frewer); Hot Paul (Dylan Bruce); pro-clone Rachel (Tatiana Maslany); missing-in-action Kira (Skyler Wexler); star-crossed lovers Delphine Cormier (Evelyne Brochu) and Cosima Niehaus (Maslany); new face Cal Morrison (Michiel Huisman); resourceful heroine Sarah Manning (Maslany); the fabulously loyal Felix Dawkins (Jordan Gavaris); everyone's favorite suburban psycho Alison Hendrix (Maslany, again); Alison's husband and monitor Donnie (Kristian Bruun); the madly mysterious Mrs. S (Maria Doyle Kennedy); killer cowboy Henrik Johanssen (Peter Outerbridge); and cop with a clue Art Bell (Kevin Hanchard).

But that's only on the surface. Here are eight items in the poster worth closer examination.


BBC America

Fans have wondered who Paul will stand with in Sarah's war against Rachel, and his placement hints at where his loyalties might truly lie.


BBC America

Kira is wiser than her scant years would indicate, and there have been hints that she might be gifted in inhuman ways. (After all, she did miraculously heal after being hit by a car.) So you can't ignore the fact she's drawn pictures of Sarah, Alison, Cosima, and Helena (RIP).

Cosima began to succumb to an illness that has afflicted several clones thus far, and it seems The Dyad Institute (Dr. Leekie's company that employs Delphine) will play a significant role in her cure — or death.

Newcomer Morrison, whom BBC America describes as a "resourceful outdoorsman with surprising emotional depth and a sixth sense about people and situations," is the only one amongst the excellent ensemble to be mostly obscured by the darkness in the poster. Therefore, he must be shady.

Felix and Alison developed a unique bond in Season 1 and many have wondered if his allegiance is shifting from Sarah to the harried mother. In this photo, he is dressed like an Alison clone (bangs included) and placed, literally, between the two.

It's also worth nothing that Alison is standing on the scarf that spelled doom for her dearly departed neighbor, Aynsley Norris (Natalie Lisinska). Clearly Alison won't be able to leave behind the role she played in her death.

When BBC America announced Season 2's new characters, Johanssen was described as "a modern-day cowboy," and there's something very wild west about the attire and gun Mrs. S is holding. Do they share more than an affection for country-western wear?


BBC America

Art is slowly (very slowly) piecing together clues that could lead him directly to this clone conspiracy; but given the contemplative way he's staring at that badge, one wonders if he'll sacrifice his pension for his "partner."

Orphan Black Season 2 premieres April 19 at 9 p.m. on BBC America.
