re: Is there a way to tell, from the git reflog view, that the third commit is orphaned?
 

I think there is a way. The term is “an unreachable” commit. I don’t know the commands though.

 

I don't think you can do it with reflog.
However, you can use git fsck --lost-found. This command will give you all dangling blobs and commits.
After the command, check the .git/lost-found folder.

In a "hello world" project with a few commits it can be cool... however on a big project it will give you hundred of files 😕
