Orphan Black Preview: “Ease for Idle Millionaires”

[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]

One of my absolute favorite Canadian talents is Helen Shaver, who has had a significant run as an actress (genre fans know her for Poltergeist: The Legacy) and director, logging time behind the camera on series as varied as Vikings, 13 Reasons Why, and Law & Order: SVU. She returns to Orphan Black tonight for her third go.

“Ease for Idle Millionaires” splits the action again between the island with Cosima, Delphine, Rachel, Susan, Ira, and Westmorland, and the city with Sarah, Kira, and Mrs. S. We’re at the halfway point now for the “final trip,” and last week’s reveal that Susan’s former colleague was the woman behind Castor and one of Sarah’s (many) arch enemies was shocking, but that’s what’s always so great about the show–take nothing and nobody for granted because sometimes the characters we’ve seen leave still find a way to come back.

Here’s what to expect in the next episode: While Sarah and Kira spend some well-needed bonding time at home, secrets are unlocked about Kira’s special gifts that are surprisingly linked to the island’s creature. Meanwhile, Cosima joins Delphine at the mansion for a twisted family dinner, causing a dangerous showdown with the Neolution patriarch.

Orphan Black airs at 10/9c on BBC America in the U.S. and Space in Canada.

Here’s a sneak peek.
