I think it ended pretty well. I'm disappointed that Piper is still with Vause, but not surprised. I was hoping she would make a life with the new woman. But I think Larry was accurate in his assessment of Piper. She is always looking for something different....exciting, less ordinary. And Vause provides that for her.
Sad that P-Tuck died. I'm glad that Taystee didn't. She has found her place within the prison and hopefully will continue to pursue a new hearing/trial. And I hope Cindy will continue to build a relationship with her mom & daughter.
I will always love Suzanne. I loved her friendship with Pussey and Taystee. They were the heart of the series for me. Poussey's death broke me. I feel bad for Lorna, but she really does belong in Florida. And it's good that Nicky is taking Red's place... gives her purpose. Happy that Gloria is reunited with her family. And it's good that Maria is accepting of her ex's new girlfriend and that they seem committed to all working together to provide a stable home for the baby.
I was sorta expecting Aleida to make a physical move on Dayanara. But that was shocking. I do believe she is dead. It looked like she broke her windpipe. It doesn't look good for Karla either... after being left out in the desert alone.
It was nice to see a lot of the people that have been missing for the last couple of years... even Pornstache.
I'm glad Badison was sent away early in the season. Couldn't stand her!
Cheers to OITNB. I didn't always love you, but I will still miss you.
