What I’m Watching: Orange is the New Black

Orange is the New Black: Season 4, Episode 3 “Don’t Say Anything” (B+)

I’m really enjoying the choices that this show is making this season for who gets the flashbacks in each episode, and I don’t think it’s a problem that we’re not even seeing what eventually sent each of them to prison even though I am curious. Seeing Soso fight against Walmart and willfully go to a sex offender’s house to win a bet was extremely intriguing, and she really is all about giving people a chance. That’s what made the things she told Judy in order to get her to talk to Poussey seem like she was just full of hot air, but they came back around to a nice place. They’re definitely a great couple even if they take too long on the basketball court. Taystee’s new job as Caputo’s secretary is fantastic, and I love how she continues to take notes but can’t figure out how to transfer a phone call. Caputo’s date with Linda was fun even if it wasn’t actually proposed by her. Vince confessing that he lives with his parents and his little brother didn’t go over too poorly, and it was equally sweet and disturbing to see Vince and Lorna engage in full, loud role play with all of the other inmates and their visitors present. Lolly is definitely going to be a problem, and Frieda emotionlessly reporting that she already moved the body and then confirming moments later to Alex that she definitely didn’t do that indicates that she may soon try to make sure that Lolly doesn’t continue to cause any trouble.
