13 Memorable Moments from Season 1
Hide Your Ugly Face
You'd peg Sarah, the English punk, as the badass of the bunch, but Alison's tougher than all the clones combined. In Sarah's first meet with the soccer mom, Alison holds her clone at knife point and makes a jab about Sarah's "ugly face." So what if they're identical - the burn works.

Can't have an "Orphan Black" highlights reel without including the double who kick-started the conspiracy. Beth's suicide, and Sarah's sticky fingers, set Sarah on a path of self-discovery (and the discovery of multiple selves.)

Sugar-covered Jell-O and violent footsie in a "nice restaurant" (Helena-speak for a crappy diner), to the tune of Sonny and Cher’s “I Got You Babe.” With clones like these, who needs friends?

Alison's Craft Room of Terror
Donnie thinks he's getting covered with sequins. HA. Lesson? Don't mess with Alison. She's even craftier than you'd think. Feel the burn, Donnie.
Tough to tell who won in Sarah and Helena’s first throwdown. Helena ends up with rebar jutting out of her side, but scores major clone scorecard points with her clever nickname for Sarah – “dirty little copy cop.”

Alison's family, neighbors and Reverend gather to talk to Alison in a "spirit of love and understanding," but Alison calls bullshit. In an epic meltdown, Alison recalls the time Aynsley "blew the roofer at the cabin." Classic. See Also: Chad sleeping with the spin instructor.
I Love You?
The only thing scarier than a psychopath clone out to kill you? A psychopath clone who loves you. Sarah's mix of horror and sympathy makes the sisters' hug scene one of the most compelling moments of the series.
In one of this season's most heartbreaking moments, Helena connects with Sarah's daughter, Kira, who seems to understand better than her mother that Helena just needs a little love.
Felix is the best babysitter in the world… or the worst. Depends on who you ask. If you’re planning to hire him, make sure your drinks trolley is stocked, and don’t be surprised if your kids end up in drag.
As if meeting her birth mother for the first time wasn’t a big enough shock, Sarah learns that she’s a twin. And not just any twin – twins with the craziest clone in the bunch, Helena. Suddenly soccer mom Alison doesn't seem quite so bad, eh Sarah?
