Loosely based on the memoirs of Piper Kerman , the series follows her incarceration in a female prison. Starting as a something yuppie, Piper Chapman Taylor Schilling has it all: But it all collapses when Alex Vause Laura Prepon , a member of an international drug ring, is brought to trial. Alex was Piper’s college girlfriend, and Piper became an accomplice when she carried a suitcase full of money, once. Sentenced to 15 months for her crimes, Chapman must trade her life in New York City for a stay in Litchfield Federal Correctional Institution with a motley crew of inmates, each with her own story—a Russian mobster Kate Mulgrew , a Hispanic woman Dascha Polanco whose first act is to get slapped by her angry mother, a trans woman who committed credit card fraud to finance her operations Laverne Cox , and more—not to mention her own personal nemesis, Alex Vause. Each episode is a look into life at the Litch. Chapman is largely the focus character, the center of Flashbacks depicting her life before prison, but more often than not one of the other cons shares the spotlight. The politics of prison life dominate most episodes, and Piper has to navigate her way through its world of work, power structures, death threats, and lesbians. And there’s always the actual wardens to think about. First running for 13 episodes from July , the fourth season debuted in June
Meet Alex Alex is carrying out her sentence for being a drug smuggler. Meet Red Red is currently serving time in Litchfield for an unknown crime and the former head of the kitchen. Meet Gloria Gloria is the head of the kitchen and a hardcore lady that takes bullshit from no one. Meet Lorna Morello Lorna is planning the imaginary wedding of her dreams while serving time in prison. Meet Crazy Eyes Suzanne just wants to be loved and taken seriously but struggles to do so while serving time.
Meet Poussey Her name is not pronounced Pussy but Poussey and she is the supportive side kick to Taystee.
She’s dating Samira Wiley, who plays Poussey on Netflix’s award-winning series. Back in May, Orange Is The New Black writer Lauren Morelli penned a touching essay announcing that working for.
After busting out a gum-wrapper ring and proposing to Daya Dascha Polanco , who is both the mother of his unborn child and still serving her sentence for drug related charges, Bennett visits her also-incarcerated mom’s boyfriend, Cesar, in hopes of connecting and becoming one big happy family of women in prison and the men who love them. But still, he said, “I’ve had mixed feelings about it. We’re sort of breaking the romanticized bubble of Daya and Bennett and actually delving into what is maybe the most realistic portrayal — something that can express the consequences of a relationship between a guard and inmate.
But he’s not exactly winning any medals for bravery. At one point he jumps out of the way of an incoming grenade in order to save himself, whereas another soldier jumps on it, absorbing the blast. He talks a little too big of a game, and I think he bites off more than he can chew. I already had people tweeting at me, screaming at me, ‘Why would you do this? You have to support your baby! If you watch the show and think of these relationships that happen between corrections officers and inmates, you might think of it a little differently now.
Orange Is the New Black
During her first lunch time she sits at the same table as Nicky, Lorna and Yoga Jones and starts to befriend them. Although Piper tries hard not to get on anyone’s bad side, she had a habit of saying the wrong things at the wrong time. Red , for instance, is the first person who suffers from her thoughtless words and in retaliation refuses to give Chapman any meals, as she is the head cook of the prison’s kitchen. As well as insulting the food in front of the head cook, on Piper’s first day in prison she discovers that Alex Vause , her ex, is in prison with her and that she would have to deal with the person responsible for her incarceration.
Although Alex wants to reconnect with her, Piper chooses to avoid her despite Alex sneaking her some food.

According to Morelli , it was writing scenes for Piper and Alex that gave her clarity on her own sexuality. I realized I was gay in fall , one of my first days on the set. It wasn’t so much one thing, but the sum of many small details: Wanting to read a book instead of have sex is a perfectly reasonable preference to have, right? But on set, these small moments came into sharp relief, and I found myself answering to an endless stream of cast members who peppered me with questions like a gaggle of kindergartners curious about their new teacher.
Holy shit, am I gay? TMZ goes on to report that the divorce has gone amicably following the couple’s two years of marriage, with Morelli keeping her Lexus and her ex-husband getting the Mazda hatchback, etc. Yet, as interesting as dividing up luxury vehicles and non-luxury vehicles may be the obvious point of this story is that Morelli is now in a relationship with Poussey and our hearts are just swelling with love right now and, hey, they look so good together in this Instagram:
Sophia Burset[ edit ] Laverne Cox Sophia Burset played by Laverne Cox ; portrayed by M Lamar in flashbacks — A trans woman , formerly a firefighter named Marcus, Sophia is in prison for credit card fraud, which she used to finance her gender confirmation surgery. Her wife at the time, Crystal, had been supportive of her transition and even helped her during her adjustment period, but her young son, Michael, had difficulty with her transition and ultimately turned her into authorities.
In the prison, she works as a hairdresser and spends the first half of the first season railing against a reduction in her hormone dosage, which is stated to be over concerns about liver damage, but she is convinced it is discrimination in fact, it is hinted at being due to Figueroa’s embezzlement. She becomes a friend of Sister Jane, originally in an attempt to convince the nun to give her some of her hormones.
Jane convinces her to try to reconcile with her son, and also to let Crystal move on. Sophia is kind and understanding, albeit a little stubborn.

Piper Chapman Taylor Schilling Piper Chapman played by Taylor Schilling is a woman who was sentenced to 15 months in Litchfield Penitentiary for helping her former girlfriend Alex Vause smuggle drug money in Europe several years before the first episode. The first season shows Piper’s journey through the prison system, beginning with her rough first week, during which she accidentally makes several enemies and struggles to adapt to life on the inside, as well as reuniting with Alex.
In prison, she acquires several other nicknames throughout the series. Piper is assigned a bunk with Claudette, who treats her rudely at first, but eventually warms up to her. She works in the electrical shop at the prison and inadvertently takes a screwdriver from the tool crib and loses it. She is initially considered non-threatening by most of the other inmates.
Although she does her best to have empathy and be helpful to others, she is often accused of being profoundly self-obsessed, and she only comes to realize that this might be true after being sent to prison. She becomes enemies with Tiffany after she ridiculed her religious beliefs, and ended up beating her severely after a failed attempt on her life at the end of the first season, knocking out all of her teeth. In the second season, she is flown to Chicago to testify at the trial of Alex’s former boss, Kubra Balik.
After perjuring herself at the recommendation of Alex, Piper is returned to Litchfield to serve the remainder of her sentence while Alex is released on early parole for her testimony. After learning her grandmother is dying, Healy assists her in getting furlough to visit her, and then to attend the funeral, which aggravates some of the other inmates. She is also commissioned by a journalist and friend of Larry’s to secretly investigate the prison’s books and later collaborates with Caputo to expose Figueroa’s corruption, preventing Piper from being transferred to a prison in Virginia.
She ends up breaking up with Larry, and after discovering that he and her friend Polly are having an affair, she asks them to report Alex to her probation officer.
