‘Orange Is The New Black’
What will happen to Taystee (Danielle Brooks) following her unsuccessful attempt at giving Poussey (Samira Wiley) the justice she deserves in “Orange is the New Black”? Netflix

“Orange is the New Black” Season 5 did not only end with Piscatella’s (Brad William Henke) death; it also saw the inmates boarding a bus and being sent to different prison cells.

According to Entertainment Weekly, the final scene in Season 5 teases a new storyline for Season 6. One of the biggest questions that will most likely be answered in the premiere is where exactly are the inmates headed. Since not everyone can fit in at Litchfield, some of the inmates will be staying in different prison cells and will be meeting new people there. Those who will be left at Litchfield would have to struggle with dealing with the higher-ups.

After all, Taystee’s (Danielle Brooks) attempts at giving Poussey (Samira Wiley) justice ended up in vain. Not only did her and her friends’ riot attempts not work, but Taystee also felt extremely broken towards the end of the episode for disappointing Poussey. Luckily for her, her new best friends Cindy (Adrienne C. Moore) and Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba) have her back.

Just like Taystee, Nicky (Natasha Lyonne) and Lorna’s (Yael Stone) bond was strengthened. Nicky showed Lorna just how much she really loves her by calming her down.

Meanwhile, “Orange is the New Black” writer Lauren Morelli opened up to The Hollywood Reporter about their decision to not write a “winning” storyline for Taystee. Her losing to the higher-ups of Litchfiel prison was a devastating outcome following Poussey’s shocking demise in Season 4.

“As you can see all season long, that is also a conversation we came back to constantly in the room. That if we are going to do this riot and if this is going to be the season, then that means we are tying ourselves into the reality of the consequences. On ‘Orange,’ even though it’s this really incredible tone of Jenji’s that walks this line of absurdism and is yet really grounded with reality, when it comes to the actual reality of prison, we have tried very hard to make sure it’s as realistic as possible,” she said.

“Orange is the New Black” has already been renewed by Netflix for Seasons 6 and 7.
