Re: Orange is the New Black - Season 4

Sophia wanted to go to max to check on her nun friend. Also, probably a safer place to be.

Re: Orange is the New Black - Season 4

I thought the first two-thirds of s5 was really good. And then forced to resolve the plot, they miss the mark.

Agree that the Piscatella thing was a joke. a literal joke of an arc.

The Piper/Vause flashbacks were stupid. It makes me hope one of them dies in this. Piper did have a conversation about death with her mother.

The Bailey stuff could have been good, but he's not captivating enough to carry that screentime.

Flaritza should have their own show.

Re: Orange is the New Black - Season 4

I guess we should use spoiler tags for a week or so.

Eps 1-3

15 minutes into ep 1 and I'm giving up. They should have wrapped it up at after season 4.

Re: Orange is the New Black - Season 4

By the end of episode 2 it seems on par with the past couple of seasons

Re: Orange is the New Black - Season 4

I enjoyed the season.

Couple new villains that turned out great. The setting is new, it's all a bit darker. Season wrapped up nicely, too.

I didn't enjoy the first episode too much either.

Overall, I think they did a better job connecting all those random story arcs and didn't flood the season with unrelated flashbacks, many of those flashbacks actually filled gaps in the overall story arc.

Finished the whole season.

My overall thoughts - enjoyable enough season, I thought the finale was a little disappointing.

Re: Orange is the New Black - Season 4

Just finished and enjoyed the new season. Definitely watchable and enjoyable enough but I would say that this series has run its course. There are definitely story lines to expound on for future seasons but if there were no more that would be fine too.

Re: Orange is the New Black - Season 4

Are we talking about Season 6 here? The title says season 4.

I am most of the way through the season, in the middle on 10, and one of my lingering questions for me is why is Black Cindy is keeping her mouth shut about her and Suzanne knowing who the real Piscatella shooters are? Yea, in episode 1 she was like "we were never here", but I can't see any motivation for her continuing to keep her silence once Tastee gets charged with murder.

Re: Orange is the New Black - Season 4

[spoiler]Not getting tortured and murdered by guards for exposing a crime they covered up seems like good motivation to me. I figure thats why they denied even being there. If guards find out they were there, they might assume they saw thing and come after them. I figure thats why Cindy tried to leak it to Caputo anonymously. [/spoiler]

Re: Orange is the New Black - Season 4

That makes sense in the moment, but not after the fact. Those SWAT guys are not the regular guards, so their opportunities for "murder and torture" seem exceedingly low.

Basically because she testified about her not knowing anything and the deal plea going away if she changes her story. Also because her story vs guards' story, a lot of risk to come forward.
