I’m the kind of person who sees the forest from the trees, but it’s probably only because my forest exists on a tiny island in the middle of an ocean of despair. But I heartily admire the people who look into the trees from the forest and delve into the minuscule details that add curiosity to spectacle. One such person is Valerie Anne of the website AfterEllen, who rounded up all of Orphan Black‘s recent Instagram clips and decoded the hidden message hidden at the end of each of them. I didn’t even realize there were hidden messages. Sigh.
The brilliant BBC America series took a unique approach to promoting its upcoming second season by dropping eight clips in eight days, most of which were at a peak moment of conflict. As if I wasn’t bursting with excitement already. And at the end of each clip, just before the “#CloneClub” screen, is a flash of binary code, different for every video. As Valerie explains, they are all taken from a single source.
