Pray for Delphine.

Posted on

A new teaser trailer for Orphan Black's fourth season was released last week, and unsurprisingly, it looks tense as heck.

In case you've been living under a rock, Delphine suffered a minor mishap at the end of season 3.

And we still don't know what happened! Is Delphine dead? WHO SHOT HER?!

Not even Cosima knows!

In January, BBC America released an "In Memoriam" Orphan Black video that seemed to confirm Delphine's death:

I know this will be upsetting to many fans but the story in our minds has always been a tragic love story. Listen, I didn't want to say one way or the other. For us, I believe this is a horrible thing that had to happen. And I know that it's hard and I know that it's emotional and I know there are going to be a lot of people out there going 'WHY?!?' But trust me, this was a necessary move to make.

BUT IT'S JUST SO HARD TO ACCEPT.

WHY SHE NEEDS TO LIVE: Um, because COPHINE, obviously.

If you take Cosima and Delphine away from us, Orphan Black, I swear to god, we will march in the streets.

But then, other the other hand, with Delphine dead, that would clear the way for Shaysima.

Hmm. Yes. Also very convincing.

And yeah, this doesn't look good.

Delphine's ambiguous fate is, unsurprisingly, a contentious topic for Orphan Black fans.
