TV THIS WEEK: Orphan Black finale, new Game of Thrones, The Mist and more

Contributed by

The big story this week goes to the Clone Club as BBC America's critical hit Orphan Black wraps up with an eagerly anticipated series finale. If you haven't been watching, shame on you (just kidding, but seriously).

Orphan Black has been one of the best, and most critically underwatched, shows of the past few years. Tatiana Maslany has consistently given a tour de force performance(s), and the final season has done an amazing job of moving a whole lot of pieces into place for this story to come to an end. Don't miss it.

On top of Orphan Black, we also have a fresh slate of SYFY fare, including Killjoys, Wynonna Earp, Dark Matter, and Blood Drive this week. There's also a new Preacher, some near-sighted terror in The Mist, and a new Game of Thrones on HBO. This season has been cramming in a whole lot of action and story, and this week's episode is expected to be a biggie.

Check out our full rundown below, set your DVR, and let us know what you’ll be watching.
