Did anyone stick it out and finish? (Vague description of element of last episode so MINOR spoiler)

I thought this final season was very good. The ICE stuff was absolutely devastating. I thought pretty much all the storylines ended well. There was one in particular that was already heartbreaking that they for some reason felt it was necessary to stab you in the heart one last time and that felt cruel.

Glad I watched it though. It was hard to finish sometimes considering how dusty it was in my room...ha

    I had quit, but picked it up again last week.  I’m mid-season 6 right now.

    I had been pretty dissatisfied with the last couple of seasons but this last one did feel way better. Plus, I couldn't just leave it all unwatched.

    For sure.  I'm way invested in Taystee's trial.  My heart is breaking for her.

    And this new townie chick Madison makes me want to put my fist in her face.  I can't *wait* until her downfall.

  • I absolutely love this final season. It took me until the 4th episode for me to see that they are trying something else to finish the series. Instead of waiting to the final episode to either “cut to black” or “speed through to the future and death of beloved central characters”, it looks like they are taking the entire season to say goodbye to every character we care about. They are doing this without sacrificing narrative devices and biting social commentary. Me suspects that if they weren’t told to end the show that we would probably have had another meandering season with the social commentary diluted in soap opera but thank the Lord we got this instead.

    Just finished up the final episode over the weekend and overall I enjoyed this season.  The ICE stuff is really tough to watch, especially since there is some major truth to it.  I did think we didn't need to see that 1 character at the end, or at least the way the show had her last scene play out.  We could have just seen her trying to get back and that's it as oppose to what happened to her.  I really did enjoy how they pretty much brought everyone back for at last a cameo appearance.  There were definitely a few characters that I had completely forgotten about and was happy to be reminded of.  I wasn't too surprised at how Piper's storyline ended but it's really funny how she was suppose to be the main character but even in this season, I felt like she actually really wasn't the main character.

    I now want to go back and watch an episode or 2 from season 1 to see who was there at the start and who wasn't by the end (either by being fired, death, or just transferred to the Ohio prison).

    Yeah, I've felt like Piper has taken a backseat role in a lot of the seasons and I am totally okay with that. Taylor Schilling does a fantastic job portraying the character, I just lost interest in Pipes a long time ago. There are so many other interesting, more deserving stories and characters to hear about over her.

    It was really nice to see those old characters! It was a nice surprise and like you said, I had sort of forgotten about so many of them getting transferred away, it was great to see them all again.

    As rocky as my relationship has been with this show, I love it. They took some chances on some seasons and they were kind of big misses but there is just something about these actresses and their portrayals of these characters that just does it for me. I'm glad they nailed the ending.
