There's still about a month to go until "Orphan Black" season 2 premieres, but on Friday, March 14, BBC America released a few promotional photos from the first three episodes to tease what to expect.
When "Orphan Black" season 2 begins, Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) is on the run, trying to find her daughter, Alison is dealing with the consequences of signing that contract, Cosima is trying to figure out how to save herself from her mysterious sickness and Rachel is determined to get what she wants: everything.
For the premiere, "Nature Under Constraint and Vexed," we see Sarah on the run, Cosima sharing a kiss with Delphine (Evelyne Brochu) at some sort of event, Paul (Dylan Bruce) on the phone, and Sarah confronting Rachel (in an image that was previously released).
For "Governed by Sound Reason and True Religion," we see Alison and Donnie (Kristian Bruun) attending Aynsley's funeral. Alison thinks she's safe this season because she thinks Aynsley was her monitor. How long will it be before she realizes her monitor is really the person she sleeps next to every night?
The "Mingling Its Own Nature With It" photos show Sarah and Felix (Jordan Gavaris) in the woods and a first look at new characters Henrik Johanssen (Peter Outerbridge) and Mark (Ari Millen). Johanssen leads a group of followers that broke away from the Proletheans, and Mark is one of his loyal followers. This is a group of shadowy religious extremists ideologically opposed to the clones.
Check out the episode descriptions below from BBC America for the first four episodes of season 2:
"Nature Under Constraint and Vexed": In the season premiere, Sarah is out of options, on the run, and pursued by deadly adversaries. Desperate to find her daughter Kira, Sarah suspects ruthless pro-clone Rachel is behind her daughter’s disappearance and sparks an all out war against her. Alison and Donnie attend the funeral of her fallen friend, Aynsley, causing Alison to sink into guilt and despair. Cosima is faced with a perplexing decision that may have dire consequences.
"Governed By Sound Reason and True Religion": While Alison struggles with Aynsley’s death and Cosima grapples with the worsening symptoms of her mysterious sickness, Sarah enlists Art’s help to find Kira and is shocked when she learns where the trail leads.
"Mingling Its Own Nature With It": After hitting the road with Felix, Sarah is forced to turn to a ghost from her past – an old flame named, Cal Morison. When their brief respite is brutally shattered, Sarah realizes that no matter how far she runs, it will never be far enough.
"Governed As It Were By Chance: Sarah comes home to look for answers. With Cosima’s help, she digs into the origins of the clone experiment. The hunt takes her right into the belly of the beast, but getting out again could cost her more than she knows.
"Orphan Black" season 2 premieres April 19 at 9 p.m. on BBC America. What do you think of these first episodic photos?
