In the Season 2 premiere of ORPHAN BLACK, entitled “Nature Under Constraint and Vexed” (Friday, Aug. 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV – check CTV.ca for local times), Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) is out of options, on the run, and being pursued by deadly adversaries. Desperate to find her daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler, ALPHAS), Sarah’s scorched earth tactics bring her face to face with the “pro-clone” Rachel. Meanwhile, with Alison’s carefully crafted suburban world spinning out of control, and the genetic illness affecting Cosima threatening them all, Sarah must negotiate a dangerous world of new enemies and shifting allegiances to get to the bottom of the experiment that made them who they are.
