From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
The only time we see Orlov is when he sings and plays the accordion so loudly that Sasha and his father can hear it through their wall on the night Sasha's dad gives him the Pioneer scarf. When Sasha's dad knocks on the wall and tells him to stop, Orlov does so right away (because that's the level of stark terror... er... healthyrespect... that Sasha's dad commands).
