'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

'The Walking Dead': First look at Andrew Lincoln in season 5

Norman Reedus recently shared what he knew about season 5 of The Walking Dead — which was somewhere between “not much” and “I’m not telling.” But filming has since commenced on season 5 and we have our first official look. That’s the good news. Now here is the bad — it doesn’t show much. 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

'The Walking Dead': Norman Reedus says season 5 will be 'completely insane'

It is about that time when actors for The Walking Dead are reassembling back in Atlanta to begin work on season 5 of the AMC zombie drama. With that in mind, we caught up with Daryl Dixon himself, Norman Reedus, recently and asked how much creator Robert Kirkman and showrunner Scott M. Gimple had told him about what to expect coming up. “A bit,” says Reedus. “Those guys are very good at telling you a bunch of stuff, and you sit there for an hour and you walk away and go, ‘What the hell did he just say? What’s going on?’ They’re very good at masking what they want to tell you.” (As someone that has interviewed both men several times, I can certainly attest to that.) READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Tatiana Maslany breaks down the latest episode

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

Sarah Manning was finally reunited with both her daughter Kira and her foster mother Mrs. S tonight on Orphan Black, but they did not have much time to celebrate as Siobhan’s former friends turned on them for cold, hard cash. But they were left cold, hard, and dead after S got through with them. Elsewhere, Cosima met Rachel for the first time, and Alison made the painful discovery that husband Donnie was her monitor — as opposed to best friend Aynsley, whom she let die. (Whoops!) We spoke with star Tatiana Maslany to get her take on Orphan Black’s second episode of season 2. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': The creators discuss the latest episode and explain how Helena is still alive

In last week’s Orphan Black premiere, we found out that Ukranian clone/clone assassin Helena was still alive after being shot in the heart by twin sister Sarah. But how? We got our answer this week. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday night’s episode of Orphan Black.]

What is a mirror twin? Why is Cosima working at the Dyad Institute? How come Mrs. S is all of a sudden killing people? And why finally let Alison in on the secret that husband Donnie is her monitor? We spoke to Orphan Black creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson to break down all of that from tonight’s episode and more.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Let’s start with Aynsley’s funeral and Alison seeing that text to Donnie leading to the light bulb going off in her head that’s he’s her monitor. Did you guys debate how long you wanted to keep her in the dark on this matter?

JOHN FAWCETT: The audience is ahead because the audience at the end of season 1 knows. There’s a big reveal right at the end of episode 10 where Donnie leaves the house and jogs down the street and gets into the car and we reveal to the audience that Donnie has of course been a lying bastard and is her monitor all along. And Aynsley is dead and Alison is burying all of this guilt. I think we realized that we had to reveal it to Alison quite quickly or quite early in the season and this seemed like a fun place to do it. Right in a public spot.

GRAEME MANSON: We didn’t want Alison too far behind for too long. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': The creators discuss the shocking return of [SPOILER]

WHAT THE HELL?!?!? That may have been your reaction upon watching Orphan Black’s season 2 premiere. So allow me to issue the standard SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s Orphan Black season premiere.

Helena is not dead. REPEAT: Helena is not dead. And it turns out that was the master plan all along. Orphan Black creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett explain why they insisted on lying through their teeth when they told anyone who asked that the Ukranian clone/clone killer was indeed a goner after being shot by her twin sister Sarah in last season’s finale. They also tell us about that intense diner shoot out, Alison’s foray into musical theater, and their big cameo!

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Tell me, how does it feel to be big fat stinking liars by going around telling everyone that Helena was dead?

JOHN FAWCETT: It feels great.

GRAEME MANSON: Evil master plan. Evil master plan the whole way. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Tatiana Maslany talks about that big premiere shocker


Orphan Black r
eturned for season 2 tonight with a big shocker, and if you have yet to watch then you may not want to read any further. [SPOILER ALERT: Read on only if you have already watched Saturday’s season 2 premiere of Orphan Black.]

She’s baaaaaaaaaack! That’s right, Ukranian clone/clone killer Helena was thought to be dead after being shot by Sarah in last season’s finale and left to die in a pool of her own blood. But SURPRISE! She’s alive, and that was just one of the twists. Sarah impersonated Cosima to lay the smackdown on Rachel, and Alison got Aynsley’s part in the local community musical. (Who says watching your bestie choke via a garbage disposal doesn’t have its advantages?) We chatted with star Tatiana Maslany to get her thoughts on the big premiere episode. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Tatiana Maslany says to get ready for a 'high octane' season 2

It’s hard getting people to notice you when you are a new show on a small cable channel, but BBC America’s Orphan Black was able to gain a devoted fan base with its twisty tale of a woman discovering she is part of a clone conspiracy. Star Tatiana Maslany in particular gained industry recognition for her portrayal of seven different characters in season 1. So what will she and the show do for an encore when season 2 kicks off on tonight? Maslany already shared some intel on the new clone , told us what she thinks she can do even better in season 2, and also revealed her current favorite clone to play. Now she tells us what else to expect in season 2. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Creators reveal more secrets from the set (like that Delphine was originally a 'kooky Asian scientist')

How much of that science on Orphan Black is actually real? How long does it take to film a scene with multiple clones? What clones did Tatiana Maslany play in her audition? And which other OB cast member auditioned for the role of Sarah Manning? In part 2 of our joint conversation leading into the season 2 premiere on April 19, co-creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett chatted about all this and more from their on-set office in Toronto. (Check out part 1 right here.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How much do you guys look at what is happening in the world of science and how much do you incorporate that?

GRAEME MANSON: We want it to be as grounded as possible in real science, but we aren’t afraid to take that one step over the line into science fiction. And part of that is having these characters react realistically to these concepts, not just having the scientific reality. So it’s something that we try very hard to do. When you keep at it, it’s strange how you do rub up against reality.

JOHN FAWCETT: Things are moving so quickly from the medical and science point of view, so the realities of things are so much closer than you would think. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Jordan Gavaris talks Felix and his lack of pants

We’ll be seeing a lot of Sarah’s sassy foster brother Felix when Orphan Black returns for season 2 on April 19. But then again, we always see a lot of Felix…especially when he happens to be wearing an apron (with nothing else). So exactly…um, how much more of Felix will we be seeing? We caught up with Jordan Gavaris, who plays Fe, in his trailer during a break in filming to get some scoop on what we can expect from Felix when season 2 premieres on BBC America on April 19. (Also make sure to check out Part 1 of our interview, in which Gavaris talks about perfecting his fake English accent and working with all the various clones.)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: So, most important question first: Will we have more pantless Felix in season 2?
JORDAN GAVARIS: They love my bum! I don’t know why. I mean I do a bit of work on my bum, but, like, I don’t have a Dylan Bruce bum. They love Felix’s bum so much and I’m so proud that they’re using my body as a means of comedy. That makes me feel really sexually secure. READ FULL STORY

'Orphan Black': Sarah was not originally British (and more fun facts from the creators)

In what city does Orphan Black take place? What is the process of mapping out an entire season? And why the heck is Sarah British? While sitting in their joint office on the Toronto set, show creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson shed light on all of these topics as well as several others in preparation for season 2, which premieres April 19 on BBC America.
