The season 5 finale of Orange Is The New Black was mayhem. It had to deal with far too many inmates wrapping up far too many storylines in a riot that had spun far too deeply into chaos. The same can’t be said about the season 6 ender, “Be Free.” The 2018 closer simply had to deal with two massive threads: the trial of Tasha “Taystee” Jefferson (Danielle Brooks) for a murder she didn’t commit and a looming kickball war slash death match between two rival maximum security tribes, C Block and D Block.
While “Be Free” actually handled both storylines well, it still had quite a few characters to check in on. After all there are still about 13 longtime OITNB favorites the series continues to follow, along with two brand-new, sprawling gangs.
So, if you’re not sure what happened in the finale, what it means, or who stabbed whom, we’re here for you. Keep reading this complete character-by-character guide to how every Litchfield inmate ended season 6, and what to expect for them in the already announced season 7. It's going to get dark.
