A discussion thread for those of us with no self control at all, who have finished OITNB S4.

What was your favourite moment from the series?

What are you most looking forward to from season 5?

I'm in! Just got two more episodes to go. I don't know if I'm enjoying it there's not been any light relief and some bits have been disturbing. I can't stop watching though.

Be back in 2 hours!

I'm just starting episode 2. Place marking for later.

Thank goodness.

I can't believe this series ending.

I was shocked when the guard made the girl eat the mouse, this series was brutal.

MissBattleaxe Sat 18-Jun-16 21:37:15

I'm on episode 3. There's a lot of comedy but I'm not keen on all the new alliances and characters. There's enough characters to go round already.

I love it that Red is in it lots. The bits with Alex and the pragmatic serial killer were actually very funny. I like how Crazy's new girlfriend was too crazy!

MissBattleaxe Sat 18-Jun-16 21:37:40

Also liked how Piper was trying to be important but nobody cared.

ElsaAintAsColdAsMe Sat 18-Jun-16 21:46:54

She was more annoying than usual this series.

MissBattleaxe Sat 18-Jun-16 21:54:42

I think they've given her a very interesting character arc. In S1, Alex was saying Piper was narcissistic and manipulative, but Piper still seemed nice. Now, you can see that Alex knew her better than anyone and she really is a cow, but with shades of grey. I like there are no saints and no out and out villains. Everyone has good and bad points.

Look at Pennsatucky- she was a monster in S1 but is one of my favourite characters now. Her backstory was so sad.

motheroreily Sat 18-Jun-16 22:33:27

What???? Just scrolled to miss all the spoilers. Episode 12. I did not see that coming.

I need to watch all these episodes again. I don't take as much in when I watch them one after the other

ChipsandGuac Sat 18-Jun-16 22:35:25

I finished the whole thing earlier. I feel like an emotional wreck. It was really full on this series and back to its best. Loved it but, omg. I cried.

ChipsandGuac Sat 18-Jun-16 22:37:22

And as for what will happen next. I think the guard will get back his gun. And then it will REALLY kick off.

motheroreily Sat 18-Jun-16 22:40:10

Bring back porntache he's a humanitarian compared to the new guards

ElsaAintAsColdAsMe Sat 18-Jun-16 22:50:14

I can't believe they killed her off.

I sort of like the captain I think he has potential to be a good guy eventually, the guards are cunts, apart from the woman and the young lad.

SharkBaitOohHaha Sat 18-Jun-16 23:26:19

I watched all 13 episodes yesterday, only taking a break to eat 😳 Spent half the time shouting at the laptop telling Caputo to bloody well stand up against what was happening, but couldn't have predicted Poussey..

I don't think Daya will shoot the creepy mouse-munching guard. I can see her maybe firing it into the air to waste the bullets?

Also agree Piper's storyline has been interesting, even if I don't like the character.

AndYourBirdCanSing Sat 18-Jun-16 23:50:29

I really disliked Piper for most of this season. Love Alex though.

I actually read a spoiler about who died but it was awful to watch- I felt quite claustrophobic. Loved the New York flashbacks and her smiling at the end sad

motheroreily Sat 18-Jun-16 23:53:22

Just finished it.

I was going to say my favourite moment was when they all
Stood on the tables in solidarity but I didn't imagine how that would turn out.

I feel stressed and sad after watching it. I need to watch some comedy now before I sleep

ChipsandGuac Sun 19-Jun-16 00:39:24

mother I loved that bit too.

The scene where Bayley met Piper in the corridor. 😭😭😭😭😭😭

ChipsandGuac Sun 19-Jun-16 00:41:09

I love Bayley. I kept shouting at the screen, "Don't just leave him! He needs to be looked after!!"

Heyheyheygoodbye Sun 19-Jun-16 01:28:24

I watched the whole new series over the last two days. I am absolutely in bits. I've never cried so hard at television in my life! So, so powerful. I wish I had been spoiled so I could have prepared!

minatiae Sun 19-Jun-16 01:49:31

Not going to forgive the writers for the end of episode 12.

My favourite character sadsadsad

ChipsandGuac Sun 19-Jun-16 01:50:20

It's interesting so many disliked Piper this season. I kind of saw it as another side of her naivety and lack of street smarts. We were laughing at her along with the prison.

I'm so glad this season got back to its best. I found last season a bit dull and didn't have high hopes.

ChipsandGuac Sun 19-Jun-16 01:51:08

Can you tell I don't have anyone in rl to discuss this with? My friends either don't watch it or are still on episode 3!

honeysucklejasmine Sun 19-Jun-16 02:08:22

Yes, I loved the Poussey NY flashback. And her smile to camera at the end just broke my heart.

Agree that Piper was an irrelevant bitch at the start, but I warmed to her again by the end. She's such a knob but she handled Bayley really well.

I was wanting to scream at Bayley "move your goddam knee. Moooove!" and it was awful to watch.

That fucking guard that drive him home though.... make a kid juggle grenades?! Kill the girl you raped?! Monster. And that psycho with the gun... jeeeez.

I too think Daya will just waste the bullets. I also hope the inmates don't fight each other, but riot instead. I feel bad for lady guard being caught in the crossfire.

Piscatelli is a douche and i hate him.

My friend is watching. After Ep 5 she said "love Piscatelli, and Poussey" and I almost cried. I love Poussey too! 😭😭

Also... wtf with Suzanne's back story! Shocking stuff!

Thelonewanderer Sun 19-Jun-16 02:10:55

I'm genuinely sat here sobbing. Can't believe it 😭

ChipsandGuac Sun 19-Jun-16 02:18:59

It was obvious Piscatella was a douche from the start. Your friend is weird grin
