Orphan Black” Season 3, Episode 5 “Scarred By Many Past Frustrations” was more slow-paced than its previous episodes this season. Is this the “calm before the storm?” Read on for the full recap.


On this week’s episode, Helena and Sarah have found each other but they’re both locked up so for starters they shared secrets and then hatched a plan to escape. Their plan was to get Sarah knocked out and then steal a pair of tweezers. On the other hand, Helena slathered herself with butter to make it easier for her to squeeze in through her cell window.

To Sarah’s horror, Helena killed a guard and to make matters even worse, Helena left her behind. Of course, we know why Helena did what she did. The Castor clones have pretty much convinced her that her sisters have left her and she believes them. In fact, they told her that Sarah trades her freedom for her own. At first Sarah thought that it was part of the plan: Helena leaving her, but she will actually come back for her.

But Helena did really leave Sarah behind as we saw her sitting atop the wall of the compound, just a few more inches until she gets the freedom that she’s been waiting for. Yet she was there, stuck, contemplating whether she should go back to Sarah. Of course, the scorpion just wants her to go and run but it was very clear that something is holding her back.

Paul has started to doubt the motives of the Castors. It was very clear that Cody is hiding some stuff from him and it isn’t what Paul signed up for. We also saw found out why there’s a creepy and freaky way of the clones keeping a lock of hair from each girl they sleep with plus the logbooks!

Paul and Detective Bell have figured out that the Castros clones don’t just have deteriorating brains, but they are also infectious. This means that Gracie Johanssen is infected by sleeping with her own husband. It was because she just collapsed in pain and her eyes turned red. Art also discovered that the same thing happened to the girl that Rudy and Seth had sex with.

And Cody encourages her “sons” to screw women just as long as they document every detail – names, vital states, and a lock of hair from each.
