Recap: Orphan Black S 01 E 08 Entangled Bank
Sarah's actions pit the Orphans against each other as she tries to plan her next move. As Paul tries desperately to cover up Sarah’s existence, Alison takes vengeance on her suspected monitor, which could cost her everything she holds dear.

  • Adult Fear: Kira is taken by Helena. When Helena lets her go she gets hit by a car.
  • The Confidant: Mrs. S. gets in on the conspiracy.
  • Foreshadowing: At the start of the episode, Kira goes to answer the door but Mrs. S. stops her "stranger danger" style. Too bad Kira didn't remember this lesson later on.
  • Hope Spot: "Mummy, I'm here!
  • May-December Romance: Possibly Dr. Leekie and Delphine. He's in his fifties, she's in her late twenties.
  • The Mole: Delphine is revealed as Cosima's monitor.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Alison's reaction after shagging her friend's husband while stoned. She starts crying about how badly she ruined her own life.
  • Oh Crap:
    • When Delphine finds Cosima's clone related work.
    • Sarah gets a massive one when she realizes that Helena has her daughter. Doubled when Kira gets hit by a car.
  • Source Music: Allison driving home, singing along to Meredith Brooks' One-Hit Wonder "Bitch."
  • The Stoner: Double subverted with Alison. She says she hasn't taken a hit since college, but then gets stoned with her friend's husband. And shags him.
  • Title Drop: Indirectly. Mrs. S. says that Sarah was "in the black", that's an undocumented orphan.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Kira gets hit by a car, though there's nothing in this episode or the next that explains what happened to the driver of said car. Granted, it's not hugely important — but it still makes you wonder.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Dr. Leekie sends someone in to poison Olivier while he's in the hospital.
