By now, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that part of Season 5 of Orange Is The New Black has been leaked online. Whether you took the chance to watch it or not, I’m here to tell you that whenever you do, you will not be disappointed. I’m not here to give away spoilers but to give you a sneak peak at what’s in store.
When our favorite inmates left off in Season 4, we were left with the image of Dayanara Diaz pointing a gun at one of the Correction Officers. As Daya is ready to shoot, the inmates are gathering around, shouting and pointing, telling Daya to kill him. All this stemmed from their cruel treatment of the girls and the death of one the most beloved characters, Poussey Washington.
What ensues when Season 5 picks up will leave Litchfield Prison in shambles and forever changed.
Just because Daya has the gun doesn’t mean she keeps the gun. Before all this went down there was already racial tension in the air and a gun on the grounds mean more scheming, lying and possibly more death is sure to come. Every click has their own agenda and the way in which the writers were able to bring it all together with a mixture of seriousness, self-awareness, humor, sadness and violence was a joy to watch.
We were giving more back stories onto some of our favorite characters and it gave us better insight as to why they carry themselves a certain way in Prison. But make no mistakes about it, the riot is still controlled by power. Whoever has the gun– has the power.
I will tell you this. The gun and power change hands so many times that situations will lead enemies to join forces and crew members to break off into their own world.
For 4 years we’ve followed these women lives as we mostly focused on humor, however, Season 5, while still funny, it brings a darker tone to Orange Is The New Black. This is a season of regret, revenge, honor, lost, love and most of all POWER.
