Orphan Is The New Black Is Now Canon (Sorta)

Youuuuuu've got cloooooooones!

Did that headline confuse you? It was meant to.

Here at The Mary Sue headquarters, folks have a tendency to get BBC America’s Orphan Black and Netflix’s Orange is the New Black confused. That is, unless you’re me, who watches both, and would never make such a mistake (ahem). But we realized a while ago it wasn’t just our staff making the mental leap and now the two worlds have officially collided thanks to the Critics Choice Awards. The Orphan Black twitter account posted this shot of Uzo Aduba and Tatiana Maslany and made a lot of folks happy. Head canon accepted: Suzanne and Helena go on a road trip. You’re welcome.
