i thought that was jane lynch for a second
My name is Sarah Manning, and I am part of a sisterhood like no other.
This was my cosplay for Fan Expo Canada!
littlemisstacobell Ugh I am planning to attend the screening either way so hopefully I can run into her! I’m sorry you can’t attend :((((((
natsdormer She is supposed to attend the premiere! I still have a chance that people may let go of their tickets so I’m just wishing for the best. GIVE ME LUCK MARV PLEASE.
“But you don’t want to do that. Or Afghanistan would all have been for naught.”
- Siobhan Sadler, 2x06
"Special forces? JTF2?"
- Paul Dierden and Mark Rollins, 2x06
”You asked me what happened in Afghanistan. I was a private contractor. I killed six marines. Friendly fire.”
- Paul Dierden, 1x10
When Sarah finally divulges the truth about her relationship with Beth, Paul very nonchalantly says, “You should have just told me that in the first place.” While Paul is known for his stoicism, excluding a few explosive moments, his reaction is unusual. The idea of genetic identicals does not seem to phase him in the slightest.
What if the six marines Paul killed were clones from the Project Castor experiment? Furthermore, what if he was a private contractor for one of the groups we’ve already been introduced to, specifically Topside or one related to the Proletheans?
Either would be probable, as the three clones of Ari Millen we’ve seen so far are related to each of the three branches we know of: Mark Rollins was with the Proletheans, Miller was with the military, and the third (unknown name) was kept in Marion Bowles’ (affiliated with Topside) home, under lock down.
With all of that being said, when Tony makes an appearance, his message is:
”Keep the faith. Paul’s on it. He’s like me; he’s a ghost.”
As far as the military goes, the Ghost Army was a tactical division used in World War II that mimicked earlier British operations. The Ghost Army impersonated other U.S. Army units to deceive their enemy. A few weeks after D-Day, while in France, the Ghost Army used inflatable tanks, sound trucks, and fake radio transmissions to confuse enemy forces.
If Paul is a ghost in that sense of the word, his involvement with the military could be for Project Leda’s benefit, given that the military abandoned that portion of the experiment in favor of Castor. Paul fits the general ideology of the Ghost Army, seeing as he has flawlessly moved through several different positions in the two seasons that have aired so far. He began in the military, moved into a lower, “entry level” if you will, position with DYAD, and was then promoted to be Rachel’s personal security guard and monitor. He then managed to disappear without any trace at all.
"No trace? No travel alerts, no digital trail, Paul’s disappeared? Keep looking."
- Rachel Duncan, 2x08
After his impressive disappearance, he reappears in military uniform, though it’s unclear in what capacity, as it just as unclear what purpose Helena serves when she is taken into custody.
