There was a lot of male vulnerability in the latest episode of “Orphan Black” Season 3, Episode 3 “Formalized, Complex, and Costly.” The whole Castor/Leda experiment has done a great deal of complication and has made its participants financially challenged. We found out a lot this episode so read on for the full recap.

Seth’s dead and Sarah and Felix were stuck with his body. Unfortunately, Art came banging on the doo. They can’t conceal the body any more with the pool of blood in the living room floor. Art saw the whole thing and chose to help Sarah to find Helena. Why? Well, it’s all because of his love for Beth! Sarah then called Cosima asking her and Scott to come over. They need to look at Seth’s brain to further understand how it works and they might just find something that can help them understand what’s really going on. They went to the rescue and Cosima went all “Grey’s Anatomy” on Seth’s brain as if he’s a neurosurgeon, thanks to YouTube who helped her out.

What did Cosima find out? First off, the women didn’t inherit the genetic defect that turns clones into freaks just like the Castors. And second, she also found out that the Ledas and Castors are working together now. Now, it is only Gracie who carries some of their genes but she can’t escape from her crazy mother.

Then we had Sarah and Mark who met Mrs. Johannson at the Willard Finch’s farm. Just when things are getting between these two, Mrs. Johannson had to put a stop to it by blowing him apart.

Also, a side story: Allison is still selling drugs to schools and making a lot of money.

As for Helena, we found out that she doesn’t have the defect and Paul was ordered to go back to Arlington because a problem occurred involving their weapons program. Yep, big reveal right there – they have weapons now! Back to Helena, it was an awesome scene when she tried to get Paul in her cell. She told Rudy that she will kill them all and we know that she keeps her word.

Meanwhile, Rachel is getting stronger but she doesn’t recognize the Castor symbol of the two-headed horses anymore.
