I was tired last Thursday night. I was seconds away from switching of Netflix for the evening in favor of sleep when I was alerted to the early release of season 3 of Orange is the New Black. Suddenly, I wasn’t so tired anymore! I only got an episode in that night, but I had a proper binge over the weekend. How on earth do I forget how AMAZING this show is?! I loved this season, as I do every season. Guys, I freaking love this show!
I don’t know how I’ll survive a whole year again, but since I’ve done it twice before… I suppose I’ll make it. Until then, I have three things to say about season 3!
- Why is Red not everybody’s favorite character?! She is the freaking best. I have loved Red since season 1, but my love for her is off the charts right now. She can properly take the title of my favorite character in this show. She’s tough, but so sweet. Can we start a Red Reznikov fan club? I’m completely obsessed with Red right now and I never want to lose this feeling.
- I loved Morello since I first saw her, with her charming but wacky accent. I was shocked to learn her backstory last season. I couldn’t be happier to see Yael Stone promoted to a genuine credited regular! And she was definitely utilized. We got more Morello this season and she was hilarious! Since we know her better, we can truly appreciate the happiness she achieved this season.
- I’m concerned about Nicky. Somebody please tell me Natasha Lyonne is coming back for season 4. Lie to me if you have time. With that swift exist, I was wondering when and if Nicky would come back all season. I’m worried more than ever now that she didn’t.
