Previously on Orphan Black: Alison goes all Guantanamo Bay on Donnie’s suburban ass and doesn’t let him go to the monthly potluck. Donnie’s sad ’cause he bought mulled wine for it and everything.

Cosima falls hard for Delphine the Frenchie even though she’s fully aware that Delphine is her Monitor. Who’s the smart one now, Cosima?
