Now, in addition to the episodic photos released earlier, you can check out gallery images of these characters in the slideshow. Keep reading to recall where each was when season 1 ended and find out where each is in season 2.

Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany)

Where she was: After finding out that the clones had been patented and they could claim Kira, Sarah sent Rachel an "UP YOURS, PROCLONE" email and got to Mrs. S' only to find her and Kira gone.

Where she is: She's desperate to find her daughter, and that mission could lead her closer to finding out the truth of who she is.

Alison Hendrix (Tatiana Maslany)

Where she was: She signed the contract and thought she was monitor-free afters he stood by and watched Aynsley die via garbage disposal and scarf, but Donnie's her real monitor.

Where she is: She feels somewhat responsible and begins to find out a series of disturbing truths, which "set her on a downward spiral, adrift on a sea of chardonnay."

Cosima Niehaus (Tatiana Maslany)

Where she was: Dr. Leekie offered her a job at the Dyad Institute, she discovered the clones were patented and she was the latest clone to face a mysterious sickness.

Where she is: She's working with Delphine to find a cure before it's too late, even though she knows she can't trust anyone there. However, Dyad does give her access to the secrets of the clone conspiracy.

Rachel Duncan (Tatiana Maslany)

Where she was: The "proclone" was introduced as the season ended and is described as "ruthless corporate efficiency personified."

Where she is: She wants Sarah and Kira, "a biological goldmine," under Dyad's control and her heel, but Sarah is very unpredictable.

Felix (Jordan Gavaris)

Where he was: As Sarah's brother, he ended up in clone world, and despite a rocky start, he became Alison's confidante.

Where he is: As one of the sneak peeks has shown, he remains Alison's confidante. He does have his own life to live too, but clone troubles lead to unsavory characters, which push his loyalty to the limit and lead him to make new allegiances. That said, he will become the glue that holds clone club together.

Kira (Skyler Wexler)

Where she was: There's something about Kira. The only child born to a clone, she could tell that Alison wasn't Sarah, Sarah knew that she knew she was back and she healed quickly after getting hit by a car. At the end of the season, she and Mrs. S were missing.

Where she is: The search is on to find her.

Mrs. S (Maria Doyle Kennedy)

Where she was: Sarah thought she was just her and Felix's foster mother, but the end of the season brought that into question. Did she take Kira? What's she hiding?

Where she is: She has an important story to tell, but is it the truth?

Paul (Dylan Bruce)

Where he was: He was originally Beth's monitor, but when he found out the truth, he chose Sarah. However, he's being blackmailed for killing six marines while serving in Afghanistan.

Where he is: He's valuable to Rachel, but how far can he be pushed? Which side will he choose?

Dr. Aldous Leekie (Matt Frewer)

Where he was: He personally went to see Alison and Cosima with contracts and was seen talking to Donnie.

Where he is: How powerful is he really in the scheme of things? Big science vs. big business makes him and Rachel "uneasy bedfellows" both wanting control of the experiment. He has a closet full of secrets about the origins of the clones.

Delphine Cormier (Evelyne Brochu)

Where she was: Like Paul, she fell for a clone. She was at Cosima's side when she discovered the clones were patented

Where she is: Where will her allegiance ultimately fall – with science or with her heart?

Donnie (Kristian Bruun)

Where he was: Everyone thought he was just a big stupid lump, but he's really Alison's monitor.

Where he is: Though he reports to Dr. Leekie, he doesn't know the true nature of the experiment. He thinks he's in the clear since Alison suspected Aynsley, but will Alison catch on? When their relationship is tested, what will he choose – to be her monitor or devoted husband?

Detective Art Bell (Kevin Hanchard)

Where he was: He was Beth's partner. Sarah hoped he could provide protection for herself and Kira, but before she could tell him anything, Rachel's lawyer stepped in. However, he does know that there are multiple people out there who look like his dead partner.

Where he is: He's put in an impossible position that will land him in very hot water, but he begins to understand just what Sarah's up against. Will he be a valuable ally to the clones once he wraps his head around what's really going on?

Cal Morrison (Michiel Huisman)

Who he is: One of the new characters, he's a resourceful individualist who walked away from a lucrative tech career when he saw his work co-opted by corporate interests. He's living comfortably off the grid, but an old flame of his, Sarah, crashes in and brings her troubles with her. Could he be Kira's father?

Henrik Johanssen (Peter Outerbridge)

Who he is: Another new character, he's the mercurial modern-day cowboy leader of shadowy religious extremists ideologically opposed to the clones that have broken away from the old world Proletheans. The divide between science and religion has merged and form a new and formidable threat under his "messianic vision."
