'Orphan Black' creators answer burning questions about the season finale

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s season 2 finale of Orphan Black.]

Wait…male clones?!? What the %&#*?!? That may have summed up your feelings at the conclusion of Saturday’s Orphan Black season 2 finale as we learned the military had their own clone operation named Project Castor consisting completely of dudes, and that Mark the Prolethean was one such clone. The twist is sure to send shock waves through the show when it returns for season 3. But that wasn’t the only bombshell dropped. Turns out Paul has been a double agent all along, Cosima is still sick, Helena is being airmailed to God knows where, and Rachel can only cry one of her eyes out to mourn the loss of her father after being on the receiving end of a pencil shot out of a fire extinguisher. We checked in with creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson to get the behind-the-scenes scoop on all of that, as well as what may just be the craziest Orphan Black scene ever: Code Name — Clone Dance Party.

Tatiana Maslany breaks down the 'Orphan Black' season finale and that crazy twist

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s season 2 finale of Orphan Black.]

Tatiana Maslany got to taste both the good and the bad and the maybe in the season 2 finale of Orphan Black. Sarah escaped from the Dyad Institute and was reunited with daughter Kira. (Good.) Rachel watched her father kill himself and then got stabbed in the eye by a pencil-spewing fire extinguisher, while Helena was taken and shipped off an military plane to lord knows where. (Bad.) And Cosima is still sick but might have uncovered some clues to her illness in a book that Professor Duncan gave Kira. (Maybe.) We caught up with Maslany to get her take on these events and more, including that crazy clone dance party (where she had to play four different characters shaking their respective groove thangs), the twist of there also being a group of male clones, and what she knows about next season.

Video: 'Orphan Black' creators share their Origin Stories

PCPT-ORPHAN-BLACK.jpg

Ask a director what his influences were during film school and the answer probably won’t surprise you: “At a certain point, all I wanted to make was Goodfellas, and then at another point, I was heavily inspired by Spielberg,” Orphan Black co-creator John Fawcett says. But get him to talk about the TV shows and movies he was obsessed with as a child, and that will change. (Killdozer, anyone?)

EW sat Fawcett and co-creator Graeme Manson down for our new video series Origin Stories to chat about both their earliest influences and the movies and TV series that inspired them as they developed their hit clone drama (which airs its season 2 finale June 21 at 9 p.m. ET on BBC America). Watch it below. Then read on for more about the movie Fawcett shot in high school, when they discovered they could work together, and which Breaking Bad scene Fawcett demanded Manson watch immediately.

'Orphan Black': Watch Rachel threaten Sarah in this exclusive scene from the season finale

“The last time I saw your mother she laid hands on me,” proclone Rachel Duncan tells Sarah’s kidnapped daughter Kira in this scene from the finale, while Sarah watches helplessly behind a one way mirror. Rachel then goes on to talk some more smack about Kira’s mommy before directing a not-so-subtle message straight through the glass at her adversary. What is the message? Well, click on the video player below to find out. And for more Orphan Black scoop, follow me on Twitter @DaltonRoss. READ FULL STORY

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s episode of Orphan Black.]

KIDNAPPED! Orphan Black’s penultimate episode of season 2 ended with Rachel disguising herself as Sarah to steal Kira. But for what purpose? In other news, Helena gave Henrik a taste of his own artificially inseminated medicine — taking out the Prolethean leader while burning down his cult-like compound. We spoke to Orphan Black co-creator John Fawcett to get the scoop on these two big developments and more, while also obtaining some clues about next week’s big finale. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': The creators discuss introducing Tony the transclone

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s episode of Orphan Black.]

Orphan Black has never shied away from taking risks, and the BBC America drama proved it again tonight by introducing a new clone into the mix. But this clone was a little bit different from the rest. For one thing…FACIAL HAIR! Meet Tony the transclone. Born Antoinette Sawicki, transgender clone Tony burst upon the scene in tonight’s episode — taking testosterone injections one minute, and then making out with Felix the next. He was looking for Beth Childs (R.I.P.) to deliver a message, but stumbled upon Art (and then Felix and Sarah) instead. We spoke with Orphan Black creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett about introducing this complex new clone, along with other big plot points from the latest episode. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Creator John Fawcett explains that big [SPOILER]

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s episode of Orphan Black.]

Season 2 of Orphan Black claimed a major victim tonight when Dr. Aldous Leekie met his untimely demise by the most unlikeliest hand of all. After losing a Dyad power struggle with proclone Rachel, Leekie fled the institute, only to be stopped by a distraught Donnie. Donnie was so upset about his wife’s…ahem…”probing” that he quit emphatically. Only one problem: When he quit, he also accidentally discharged the handgun he was holding, which splattered the doctor’s brains all over the car windows. In our weekly post-episode Q&A, co-creator John Fawcett explains the decision to kill Leekie (played by Matt Frewer), as well as Rachel showing some actual emotion, going for big laughs in rehab, and the twisty-turny relationship that is Cosima and Delphine (or Cophine, for short).

'Orphan Black': Creator John Fawcett on Helena's big make-out scene

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday's episode of Orphan Black.]

ROAD TRIP! Sister clones Sarah and Helena were on the move in the latest episode of Orphan Black, which led to one hilarious sing-along scene as Helena channeled Betty, Veronica, and Jughead with her rendition of The Archies’ “Sugar Sugar.” But then the freak got even freakier, heading into a bar where she got it on with a tow trucker named Jessie (played by Suits star and OB fan Patrick J. Adams). We spoke with Orphan Black co-creator John Fawcett to get the scoop on an episode that provided doses of both humor and intrigue, as Sarah uncovered a key piece of intel from…Rachel’s father?

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So, you realize there is totally a Sarah and Helena road trip spin-off sitcom to be had here if you want.
JOHN FAWCETT: [Laughs] We wanted to put Sarah and Helena together on the road: the camping, the sing along in the truck, those were all elements I was hoping to get into season 1 that just didn’t happen. Because I just think the two of them are really hilarious together and really fun. So I’m really glad we got the opportunity to put the two sisters together and have a little bonding time and mend a few fences. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Creator John Fawcett breaks down the latest episode (including clone sexy time!)

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday's episode of Orphan Black.]

Why, Paul, you naughty boy! And naughty in more ways than one. Tonight’s Orphan Black episode was filled with people making big moves — sexual and otherwise. Like Rachel’s new monitor, for instance. That’s right, after bring told by Rachel that he needed to pick a side, Paul swooped into action — framing Felix for murder and then doing the do with Rachel while two of her fellow clones (Sarah and Helena) watched. Kinky! Elsewhere, Dr. Leekie ignored orders from Rachel to shut down Cosima’s stem cell treatments, Gracie paid dearly for trying to kill Helena, and Cal proved that there is some mystery and intrigue in his past as well. We caught up with Orphan Black co-creator John Fawcett to talk all about tonight’s episode. READ FULL STORY

InsideTV Podcast: Trish from 'Survivor' unloads on 'unbearable... cruel... vicious... no class' Kass

Trish Hegarty tried to let bygones by bygones after she was voted off of Survivor: Cagayan, wishing everyone luck as her torch was snuffed. So how did arch nemesis Kass respond? By giving her the finger on the way out.

So it’s little wonder that after watching that one finger salute on TV last night that Trish did not hold back when she called into Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM channel 105) this morning. Here are just a few of the words she used to describe Kass during the course of our discussion: unbearable, cruel, vicious, no class, and delusional. Oh, yeah, she also said that Kass “literally made my skin crawl.” So there’s that.

And there’s much more. Hear how Trish feels about being betrayed by Tony, how she thinks she would have done in the finals, her thoughts on pre-merge enemy Lindsey, and what has surprised her the most watching the season play back on TV. It’s all ready and waiting for you on the latest edition of the InsideTV Podcast and you can listen to it right here and right now by clicking on the audio player below. (The Trish interview begins at the 36:40 mark.) READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Creator Graeme Manson on that shocking clone reunion

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s episode of Orphan Black.]

Reunited and it feels so good…if your definition of feeling good involves being bound in a shower while your crazy clone assassin sister in a bloody wedding dress caresses you with a giant knife, that is. That’s right, Sarah was face to face again with Helena (whom she thought she had shot to death), and in Rachel’s apartment of all places. Then again, Helena did kill Daniel for her, who appeared ready to do some serious damage to Sarah himself, so, like, where’s the gratitude? Anyway, it was a creepy, chilling scene, and now Orphan Black co-creator Graeme Manson tells us all about it in our weekly post-episode react. Also up for discussion: Alison in rehab! Mrs. S. having sexy time with Carlton! Intel on Rachel’s parents! And the Proletheans making a startling discovery. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Creator Graeme Manson reveals how they created the new clone

[SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s episode of Orphan Black.]

The chase is on! Tonight’s episode of Orphan Black featured a reunited Sarah, Kira, and Felix on the run. And that run led to a cabin in the woods occupied by none other than…Kira’s father! Turns out he’s an old flame named Cal that Sarah scammed back in her grifter days. Meanwhile, Cosima pored over the video diaries of another clone named Jennifer Fitzsimmons who seemed to be suffering from the same respiratory illness that she is. In the serious bummer department, it turns out Jennifer just died from it three days prior. (Gulp!) And in the serious cliffhanger department, Rachel’s henchman Daniel showed up and took Sarah at gunpoint, but the episode ended with their car being plowed into by another vehicle. (Double gulp!) We spoke with Orphan Black co-creator Graeme Manson to get the inside scoop on everything that went down in tonight’s episode. And click on the video at the end to see more of new clone Jennifer’s video journal that you did not see on the show! READ FULL STORY
