ORPHAN BLACK Season 4 promises a “horrifying new direction” for Sarah.
Years after her death, it all comes back to Beth Childs. Sarah Manning didn’t know exactly what was happening when she took over Beth’s identity after watching her leap in front of a train, but she has a much better idea of the trouble she’s facing in Orphan Black Season 4 as she searches for Beth’s old contact. Still, she doesn’t anticipate that the information she discovers will force her away from her sisters, as evidenced by the newly released season synopsis!
From BBC America:
Sarah will reluctantly return home from her Icelandic hideout to track down an elusive and mysterious ally tied to the clone who started it all — Beth Childs. Sarah will follow Beth’s footsteps into a dangerous relationship with a potent new enemy, heading in a horrifying new direction. Under constant pressure to protect the sisterhood and keep everyone safe, Sarah’s old habits begin to resurface. As the close-knit sisters are pulled in disparate directions, Sarah finds herself estranged from the loving relationships that changed her for the better.
Orphan Black Season 4 will also bring in a new character named Dizzy played by Joel Thomas Hynes (Republic of Doyle, Relative Happiness) who is described as “an edgy, self-reliant hacker who doesn’t conform to group mentality”. It seems quite possible that this character could be Beth’s contact, but there’s no official confirmation quite yet.
Meanwhile, a set photo has already found its way on to the Internet thanks to John Fawcett!
