Everytime Emily Andras takes a playful jab at Jason Rothenberg and every other showrunner that’s been cliches with overused tropes and fucked up our beautiful otps. 50 additional years get added to my life.
Check out what the cast and creative team of Orphan Black thinks you should be looking out for this season:
“Because I’m so close with Helena, I’m very excited about her journey. We all know that she’s in a motherly way, so that journey’s going to be very, very fascinating.” Kristian Bruun
“I think my favorite journey throughout the entire show, and especially this season, is Alison. She’s the one who’s changed the most, and pushed her boundaries the most, and it’s gonna keep happening this season. She’s so much fun, and she’s going to keep being wilder and wilder and more and more entertaining.”Evelyne Brochu
“I think that one of the wildest, most interesting character journeys in Season 5 is Rachel. Rachel is unbelievable this year.” John Fawcett
“And taken as a whole from when we met her at the end of Season 1? That woman has been on a hell of a journey. As well, I think that Sarah and Helena have a nice sister arc this year, too.” Graeme Manson
“I’m looking forward to Delphine. Fans love the Delphine/Cosima relationship, so seeing how Delphine’s storyline comes to an end, that’ll be really exciting. And Mrs. S. as well. Mrs. S. and Felix have been with Sarah from the beginning, so that whole family unit.”
When we speak for the finale, you’re going to be crying, and that’s okay. We have just finished locking picture on the finale. I think it’s largely a story that John Fawcett and I had in our minds loosely from the very beginning. But to answer your question, I think we sort of asked ourselves: Who were they then and where are they now, and what does freedom look like to each of them?
