none of this is following the book anyway so they can go as long as they want.  its a prison so as long as they incoming, is there really an end?  Piper isnt really necessary.


And her sentence can change at any time. There will be no closure cause Alex will be back.Alex will be back

She told on Alex more because she afraid for her life than anything.
She's still in love.

I agree 100% that Piper isn't necessary. If the series just wanted to focus on the diverse cast of colorful inmates then I'd be 100% on board with them going as many seasons as needed. But that isn't what Netflix is doing. The real Piper is a show consultant or whatever, and I know they aren't going to write her out of the show. In fact I believe Netflix thinks she is the anchor to the show. Can't just have a show about a bunch of crazy drug dealing, murdering, loud inmates without having the white, high class, privileged, liberal   "relateable - or *gulp* endearing as coco said - character represented. It's how they sell the show in trailers, so even if her story is wildly irrelevant, it's still included so that the viewer can have someone's shoes to step inside of voyeurlistically.

To be clear, yes Netflix can go as long as they want, but I'm saying I can't see the quality of the show remaining high if they still insist on Piper being the lead character, as her story doesn't have much juice to ring out before it becomes really contrived.

Spoiler
Her trip down south being canceled and Alex coming back an example of the contrivances.
Good shows know when to end.

-not reading anything on this page… seems like spoilers- 


lol tatee and HB.. i kinda wanna pace myself cus the next season probably wont be until 2015.. plus i wanna be productive and save the show for nighttime.. 
idk how long that will last though.. i havent been very productive today. 


I think they could definitely go to 4 seasons.. About pipers sentencing being half way through… so that means she didnt get time added on for beating pennsatuckys ass?

I decided to stop being stubborn and check out the first episode. The opening sequence assures me I would never last in prison. I'll turn this on whenever I feel myself about to go ham on a nicca. It ain't worth it.
