Tumblr, why did you do this thing and make that post with the caps of Cosima’s clone files blow up? Because now I feel compelled to tell you that there’s actually conflict between Cosima’s chart/notes and the actual documents of her fellow clones. Why there’s conflict, I have no idea, especially considering that Cosima has all the documents in hand. But they are as follows:
(Cosima’s chart: 1984-03-10, no conflict)
(Cosima’s chart: 1984-03-12)
(Cosima’s chart: 1984-04-28)
DOB, according to license: 1984-03-12
DOB, according to birth certificate: 1984-03-24
DOB, according to passport: 1984-03-24
(Cosima’s chart: 1984-03-24, DON’T ASK ME WHY TWO OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS DON’T AGREE, I DON’T KNOW)
(Cosima’s chart: 1984-04-18)
(Cosima’s chart: 1984-03-13, this is so wildly off I can’t even)
I have no idea why these huge disparities exist considering Cosima has all the papers in her own possession. You’d think she’d be decent at copying information from a source to her chart considering she’s a scientist who is conducting research and all …
Other things to note:
- Danielle’s blood sample features a very official-looking patient number. I’ve been wondering how Katja got her hands on hair and blood samples if her genetic identicals were killed months before her. How long had she known of her genetic identicals? It doesn’t seem likely that she was brought into the DYAD/Neolution machine/corporation in the way that the North American crew were offered deals because she would have just gone to them for protection and/or health aid. So … how did the European crew get together and how in the world did Katja get samples? (Also, Katja was loaded with money or at least had a generous credit line. Seriously.)
- Is that an X-ray of Katja’s lungs? Or was more than one of the EU clones infected/affected by whatever seems to be genetic?
- I tried very hard to see the birth date listed on Beth’s driver’s license, but the show really, really didn’t want us to see that information and strategically had all that info out-of-focus in every shot (when Sarah checks Beth’s ID after she steals the purse; when Felix looks at the ID; when Stephen checks “Beth’s” signature against her ID). If anyone has better eyes/capping powers than I, please nab it.
- If we go by Beth’s birth certificate, she’s an APRIL FOOLS’ BABY. I can’t even.
