I’m grasping at straws here, because I really don’t know what to make of the Helena-Kira connection at this point. I’m assuming that Kira could see Helena from her bedroom window and went down the stairs to get a closer look. And you’re right - the lack of fear, but rather joy on Kira’s face when she sees Helena makes it seem like Kira had been anticipating Helena’s arrival. In retrospect, Mrs. S’s rules about answering the door seem rather ominous. There was definitely something eerie about their seemingly telepathic communication through the front door. And I don’t recall anyone discussing the killer clone around Kira, so I don’t know how Kira knew Helena’s name or didn’t seem that surprised to see another woman who looks like her mom.
Mrs. S is very protective of Kira, and the way she talked about burning everything to the ground if the situation should get too close to Kira suggests there is something very special about the little girl, besides being the (supposed) biological child of a (supposed) clone.
I don’t know if their connection has anything to do with any of my earlier theories about Helena and Sarah sharing a birth mother, Helena being “the original”, or Kira actually being Helena’s clone or biological child. There is a childlike innocence to Helena, so I wonder if Kira, who seems to be growing up rather isolated from other children her age, was able to sense that and sympathize. My guess is Helena’s been led to believe that the clones are an abomination and that they can’t reproduce. Kira’s existence completely turns Helena’s worldview upside down, which explains why Helena would reach out to Kira, but not why Kira would reciprocate. Does Kira just somehow know that getting through to Helena may be the key to protecting her mom and “Auntie” Alison?#Orphan Black #Conspiracy Theories #q & a
