BBC America releases sneak preview of 'The Collapse of Nature'
All is fair in love and “sestra“-hood, and BBC America continues to tease Orphan Black fans with season 4 tidbits, this time debuting a sneak peak at the first four minutes of the upcoming season premiere.
The clip, taken from the episode “The Collapse of Nature,” introduces a major new addition to The Clone Club. M.K. (Tatiana Maslany), clad in a lamb mask, slinks amongst the shadows as she observes two EMS workers bury what appears to be a body in the middle of the woods.
M.K. then makes a phone call to a character who originally perished during the series’ 2013 premiere episode, Beth Childs, confirming that the season will dip its hand into the well of the past as a means to push forward the present story, which left off with a Sarah/Kira reunion in Iceland. “Follow the coordinates. Remember, don’t trust anyone next to you,” M.K. warns as Beth, laying in bed with another familiar face, Paul (Dylan Bruce), answers the phone. This marks Paul’s first appearance on the series since being killed off in season 3.
Following a minor exchange between Beth and Paul, the clip ends with M.K. receiving a text from Beth. “I’m on my way,” it reads, setting a mysterious stage upon which season 4 will unfold.
Previously described a “a slightly traumatized clone who has a deep past” and “a Deep Throat kind of character” by series co-creater John Fawcett, M.K. will reportedly play an integral role in the upcoming season of Orphan Black.
BBC America also recently announced a brand new after show, After the Black, set to air Thursdays at 11 p.m. ET following new episodes of Orphan Black.
Watch the first four minutes of “The Collapse of Nature” above ahead of Orphan Black‘s season 4 premiere April 14 at 10 p.m. ET on BBC America.
