Dear Orphan Black,
This is after I've had a full night to sleep on episode 6 of season 3 and I'm still in shock! I went from laughing my butt off with Team Hendrix to completely re-evaluating my ability to judge character!
And here I thought I would have to be worried that Pupok would be the biggest assault to my emotions last night! Although Helena is a survivor and we all know that, she does whatever she needs to keep going and keep moving. I was incredibly upset with her for leaving Sarah behind in that hellhole!
Not that I was all for Helena being in that hell hole, but I understood why Mrs. S made the choice that she did in giving over Helena. Unlike the rest of the clones Helena had a rough childhood, rough background and she knows how to survive under any circumstances. Even under torture and experimentation she doesn't go cry in the corner and cower in fear. Helena is calculating; she was planning an escape from the get go and we know she would have escaped with or without anyone else's help. Sarah's arrival in the cell next to hers just expedited the escape process.
But Sarah, Sarah may be a grifter and a con artist, but she's not built from the same tough stuff as Helena is. Twins or not Sarah's life was a dream in comparison to Helena's!
And Sarah did say it best, Helena is institutionalized, she will always and forever have trust issues so it's not really a surprise that she left Sarah behind. I just wish she had as much faith in her Sestra that she wants to because if she did she never would've left Sarah behind.
But all that being said and all us Clone Clubbers know what Helena has done in the past I always trusted her character! She's one of the clones. She's one of the Sestras! She came back for Sarah and they'll survive, they'll make it.
Now let's talk Paul! I was ALWAYS on the fence as to whether or not I should trust Paul Dierdan! Always leaning more towards my distrust of him! He did too many shady things in regards to the clones for me to put my full faith in him; I mean he's no Felix Dawkins. But turns out he was one of the good guys and he only had to DIE for me to finally learn that!
I mean really just as he redeems himself in my eyes he dies! Granted he died, presumably, protecting the clones from Castor and Virginia Coady but he's still dead! That's one less protector the clones have from Castor, DYAD, Top Side or whoever else is out there "hunting" them.
They've got Helena back on their side but really they can use all the help they can get. This is war and war has casualties. No one ever said this was going to be easy kiddo.
Good luck Clone Club, the rest of the season is going to be quite a ride I'm sure!
