I think they're pretending it's a US city. I believe Kisema is attending college in Minnesota and they all seem to live within a short drive of each other. The other thing that makes me think that is the fake police shoulder patches. It's got a couple of symbols from the US Department of Justice in the center, as if someone said, "See? It's an American police force, cause it's got American stuff in it!"

Even though it's being made with British Money.

They're not drawing much attention to it, but I think they're in Toronto. Felix keeps complaining about going to Scarborough whenever he winds up at Allison's place.

Cosima's in Minnesota; she was only in town to pick up the briefcase.

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

I liked this last one---the mixing of Alison and Sarah's lives. I'm assuming that Kasima is allowing her monitor to get close on purpose.

Quick check: Oh. Wiki has the character's name as "Cosima;" never would have thought of that spelling.

Yeah, Vic is a total scumbag but I couldn't help feel sorry for him now that both his hands are messed up. OUCH. And couldn't help but feel a little bit sorry for the husband while Alison tortured him with her crafting supplies---but he did kind of deserve it and it was kind of a funny in a sick way.

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

What if the husband is still her monitor and he's just really good at withstanding torture. That's what was going through my head all throughout the episode last night. I don't trust him yet.

^Then he's in it for the long haul, considering they went to high school together.

Considering we saw him in full espionage mode burning the files in the middle of nowhere (rather than just ditching them in the trash somewhere away from home) while talking all spy-like on a phone... yeah... They even showed it in the recap.

I'm also pretty sure Sarah isn't a clone but the genetic donor (hence being able to have a child), which is why she likely doesn't have a monitor at all. They apparently just want to monitor the way the clones behave in the real world. Like whatshisface basically said, "as long as they're making their own decisions, there's no wrong choice."

Though I do believe Mrs. S. knows about her being in the experiment. Or at least suspects something, which is why she brought her to the New World. Especially now that we know the European clones were being exterminated.

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

Why would they pick a no one to be the doner?

It's probably a way cool historical figure?

Joan of Arc?

Mary of Nazareth?

Tzarina Anastasia?

Dr Quinn Medicine Woman?

There could be a town in Minnesota named Scarborough. It's a state.

There's an easy way to know for sure. What bills was Sarah issued when she cleaned out the account? Likelihood says: Canadian Dollars means Toronto, American Dollars means fake American City.

The Wikipedia page says Canadian dollars, and lists a couple of other hints the show is set in Toronto.

They probably did tests on a large number of orphans (that no one would miss if things went awry, hence why they'd pick one), and Sarah just happened to meet all the prerequisites they had for a donor.

It's the fact that she had a kid of her own and none of the other North American clones had any idea she existed that's the big indicator. Crazy psycho chick also seems to think there's an original donor.

I thought Helena was Russian. The German was the one she shot in the car. Could be wrong, though.

You may be right. Either way, I think that she thinks she's the original and the others are abominations of god.
