Mark is not dead yet, Allison is still in the thick of things drug dealing, Sarah risks her life while Helena offered mercy killing in “Orphan Black” Season 3, Episode 4 “New Elements of our Defense.” Read below for the full recap:

If Helena didn’t tie off her arm to hinder the sedative from getting into her bloodstream, we wouldn’t know that that’s possible. Upon doing so, she was ready to escape, but he encountered Parsons with his brain exposed. She offered mercy killing instead by driving a scalpel into his head while saying “We were both abandoned by our families, left to suffer…” She really thinks her sisters have abandoned her.

Meanwhile, Allison is still drug dealing. In this episode she met the local drug kingpin, who turned out to be her ex-boyfriend back in high school. Of course, Allison flirted around because well, he turned out to be really hot especially the fact that Donny is the guy her mom actually liked. I also think that it’s time that we meet Allison’s mother.

Sarah tried to save Mark and even dig up a small casket for him. She’s doing all these stuff because since Cal and Kira are gone, she’s got no love. And with Mark gone, there’s Rudy who’s so ready to pick up the pieces and do the dirty work.

In other news, Cosima is still rooting for Delpine. Poor Felix, though. Oh and there was the shocking image of Gracie miscarrying.
