Typically I don’t participate in any speculation about an upcoming story line on a show but we received confirmation today that Delphine and Cosima will not be together in S3.
Ok. That makes sense in the broader story line because shows don’t keep couples together. I am excited to see if they will finally develop Delphine’s character. Some people don’t like her or think she is weak. I don’t think so and I hope Ebro has the opportunity to show that in S3.
Many people think that Cophine is the end game but I am concerned for a couple of reasons. Ebro is the lead on X Company and it was renewed this week. Shooting schedules overlapped some this year and probably will next year as well. X Company provides her the opportunity to show her depth and acting ability - more so than Orphan Black. Plus she seems to enjoy acting in independent films. Many actors thrive on variety and different challenges. Working on two shows doesn’t leave much time for other work.
As much as I HATE to say it, Delphine dying in an attempt to save the Leda clones makes sense. It redeems whatever she does to hurt Cosima and allows a proper send off for her character.
Despite my post, I remain optimistic. My hope is that they will be back together by the S3 finale. Maybe Shay will not be as she appears and Delphine figures it out.
I feel better now that I have said it. So, Cophine fans - stay strong and let’s have hope!!!
