My Review

Kudos to the casting crew for the ace casting of young Frieda. She really did look like grown up Frieda especially the eyes. I really liked Frieda’s story and how her dad tested her survival skills for…I’m not sure yet for what. Was he a Communist sympathizer? Loved how Frieda devised a way out of the kitchen just so she can hide out in her bunker. That place was packed with all kinds of goodies. Yep, she wins best inmate.

I was very uncomfortable watching the inmates abuse those guards. Not that I’m on the guards’ side, but that was just inhumane and I think Ruiz took this a little too far. Alex and Soso walking out of that meeting showed that their conscience are in the right place. It’s just too bad no one else spoke up and stood up for the guards…except for Gloria. Man, Ruiz is going to lose her shit when she finds out that Daya no longer has the gun. It’s possible things can go from bad to worse.

Poor Soso and her library getting ransacked. Where the fuck did Judy go? She was supposed to keep Poussey’s books safe. Also felt sorry for Taystee’s plan not working out like she hoped. The only thing that came out of it was now Cindy is a meme (#BlackLattesMatter). The girls trying to figure out the whole Internet thing was very funny and I bet it’s true what they said that for every year that passes inside prison, a hundred years passes on the Internet.

Maureen causing Humps to have a stroke…I didn’t see that coming. I thought it was going to be Suzanne who would have a hand in his demise so that was a nice surprise. It would be insane if Suzanne and Maureen still end up together after everything that has happened.

I hope the Indian nurse helps Sophia with her hormone treatments somehow. Sophia might have found her true calling by helping sick people.
