I really didn't enjoy this season very much. I know my "sensitivity" as a Black woman greatly plays into it, but it was extremely grating to have to sit through so many racially charged plots, and then the ending was just... exhausting. I want to commend them for invoking Eric Garner's death, for referencing Sandra Bland, but it really fell apart for me in the way they wrote it. Framing Poussey's death as an accident (and I don't mean Caputo doing so - that was very realistic, but the show literally having Bayley not meaning to do it), and involving Suzanne, it was just very frustrating. I know they wanted to add nuance, but in my opinion, there's nothing gray about Black people being killed in police custody. They took the racism out of something that is inherently racist, and put a large part of the blame on the company instead of just having one of their many shitty COs be the one involved. Now I'm supposed to also feel sorry for the innocent one whose life could be ruined because he didn't mean to do it. Whatever. I get what they were trying to do, but I think they failed, and only made it more offensive for me. Also, Poussey was my favorite character, so it was like an extra stab in the back, lol.
I'm gonna come back next year, because I still think it's a good show, and I love its diversity, but I'm a lot less willing to sit through another season of what feels like trauma porn.
So my wife and I just finished watching this season and 1 thing that I had an issue with for the whole season is why the drug lord guy (forget his name but Alex's old boss who sent the hitman to kill her) never followed up with "where did my hitman go?". His hitman is able to work his way into the prison and tells the boss that he killed Alex but then goes AWOL. Surely, a savy guy would have noticed that his hitman never came back from the job and hasn't heard from him in awhile. I'm guessing at least a month or 2 must have passed during the season and so the drug lord guy would have at least started to snoop around or sent someone into the prison to find out if the hitman is still posing as a guard there or what happened to him. Just thought that was something that should have been addressed along the way.
Like everyone else, I was very sad to see Poussey killed off and sad to see what happened with Suzanne. It will be interesting to see what happens with the prison riot next season and what happens to the guards.
