June 6 was a monumental day for all Orange Is The New Black fans. This is the day Netflix released the complete second season. If you’re new to this show, let me break it down for you. Piper Chapman, an upper-middle class white blonde female, confessed to having been involved in criminal activities and is sentenced to a low security prison. There she quickly learns there is a pecking order and she needs to toughen up. Everyone from murderers to those fighting with addiction to those caught in the wrong place at the wrong time is here. Among them are some great characters, which really make the show awesome! While we go through Chapman’s time in prison, we’re also given flashbacks of her life, as well as the lives of the other inmates. We find out what she was like before prison and how she got to where she is now.
Flash forward to June 6, 2014. Season two. Of course I had to binge watch this. I spent two sittings to watch the whole season. No regrets. We’re introduced to a few new new characters, Vi and So-So. So-So is a protester that wants everyone to hold hands and come together in the power of womanhood. Vi is a strong-willed and down-right brutal drug dealer who has ties to Tastey. We’re also invited into the world of other inmates that we had yet to learn about. This season we learned about Tastey’s past and her connection with Vi. We focused on Miss Rosa and her fight with cancer, as well as her bank-robbing days. We followed Morello around before she was arrested, and we finally got to meet Christopher! We saw Warren (Crazy Eyes) when she was a little girl and when she graduated high school. We glimsed P when she’s in Germany at school. Ingalls (Sister) was a protester and we finally get to see just how radical this nun was.
Of course we have the weird love triangle between Chapman, Voss, and Larry. There are new wars and questionable alliances. I don’t want to give too much away because I don’t want to ruin the magic. I am geeking out hardcore over here!
So…. have you seen it? Who’s your favorite character? Mine is Morello and Nichols! What shocked you the most (without giving anything away)? Comment below and keep the conversation going. Like Comment and Follow!
