Disagree. They make they sure, the other characters are interesting in minor rules but season 2 featured them far too prominently. I don't give a about V being the "big bad" , it dragged the season down.

Piper and Alex. I only endure Piper's white privilege ass for the rest of the characters. Every time she blew up I rolled my eyes and ignored my instincts to fastforward. I sighed heavily every time she went to tell people she isn't the girl they think she is, like drinking Malt Liquor means she is the new black now.

So thank God there was a greater focus on everyone else. I just wasn't that interested in Vee as the main antagonist.

There are so many characters so I'll break down what I liked about season 2 by character. I don't remember anybody's name so...

Spoiler

Character arcs I enjoyed:

Cancer Patient reliving her past, doing one more heist, smelling that money, breaking the curse, then going out in a blaze of glory

The guy that has his own band getting rid of both pornstash and the embezzling lady.

Mouse looking cop girl getting hit on, spying on phone convos, and ultimately standing up for herself before finding out this line of work isn't for her.

Big loud girl that has her mom taking care of her daughter. There's something realistic about that, that I appreciated watching.

Piper's weird ass brother getting married at his nana's funeral, lmao.

Head Hispanic kitchen chick's foodstamp scam backstory and maternal nature explored.

The arc of Taystee and Poussey's friendship. I didn't like the plot device they used to divide them but they had a bunch of really good scenes nevertheless.

The one prison guy who led safe place and thinks lesbians are going to take over the world. He was fun to watch this season too.

The transgender woman's scenes, especially the one with her son. Problem being there were too few of them.

Red's story. Even though I didn't care for Vee, seeing Red humbled and reaching out for her family was interesting. I did sort of like seeing booth Vee and Red running their various smuggling scams.

Crazy Eyes is starting to become an iconic character for this show. Seeing more of her story, and why she is the way she is was great.


Character arc's I didn't enjoy

Vee. It would be one thing if she was a minor character but she was a major one that divided the prison so that impacted the enjoyment of the season as a whole. The woman playing her is a good actress, so it's not that, but I just didn't buy anyone's reason for following her, except for Crazy Eyes. Everyone else she magically had by the balls? Didn't buy it. I also didn't really like her ending. The person she had the deepest relationship with was Red and Taystee yet neither one of them ultimately put an end to her...it was the prison cop and the cancer patient. Hardly satisfying.

Asian girl. Didn't understand what the the point of her was. Kept waiting and nothing. No backstory. No trait that is uniquely hers (except being annoying?). Nothing. I'd assume the point of her was to get the nun lady back into protesting but that could have been done by a number of characters, including Patti Mayonaise and the crazy Jesus freak with new teeth...speaking of which.

Crazy Jesus Freak with new teeth didn't do anything worthwhile the entire season. Neither did her crew. She's one of the better actors on the show so if they are going to have her character around, have her do something?

Alex. Her sporadic appearances don't work, imo. I just lose complete interest when she's gone for 3-4 episodes and then pops back up and I'm supposed to care. When Piper says "I thought you were going to lie" and Alex said "I thought you were going to tell the truth" I just sighed to hell, cuz I'm just tired of their no chemsitry having relationship.


Jim from American Pie. Only person this guy can have chemistry with is Michelle from American Pie.  He did however have some funny scenes with Piper's best friend and his dad at the gay spa.


Daya and Bennett's relationship. It was one of my fav parts of season 1 and I just didn't understand their scenes together here. She was annoying. He was, just sort of there. I guess it could be chalked up to her being pregnant and emotional but if that's the case, snatch it off TV cuz it's not interesting to watch, imo. I did really like the other hispanic chicks getting Bennett to smuggle in sh*t for them, that was hilarious.


As my list shows, I def enjoyed a lot of character moments but the overarching plot wasn't as compelling. The issues with pornstash in season 1 was much more compelling, imo. I think I'd give the season a 7.5 out of 10. Pretty good. I think I would have given season one a 8 or 8.5 out of 10.
