In the very first scene of "Nature Under Constraint and Vexed" we find Sarah Manning on the run. With no where to turn, it's Pro-Clone Rachel Duncan who ends up on the other line of the infamous pink clone phone.
"There is a painless way to reunite with Siobhan and Kira," Rachel says, but Sarah's having none of it.
It's not exactly a phrase we haven't heard before. But, Orphan Black doesn't like to let its threats lie hanging, and this one's no exception.
In the episode's final scene, we catch our first glimpse of a supposedly-kidnapped Kira. And what do you know?! That mysterious man sure is getting up close and personal with more than one hair on Kira's head.
Opening and closing Orphan Black's Season 2 premiere with strong bookends like these not only makes for a tightly scripted episode, but also reinforces the fact that Kira (and the magical lizard DNA all tied up in those golden locks) continues to remain one of Orphan Black's central mysteries.
It looks to us like Kira's definitely caught in the crosshairs.
