Pennsatucky lost a lot of her fire (and brimstone) this season. But she gained a new set of teeth. Hallelujah! But in all seriousness, I loved Pennsatucky’s crazy-ass last season. But this season, I couldn’t rock with her… or that unfortunate hair cut she had towards the end.
OK, so this is where it gets hard. Because there’s Sophia, who is a fantastic character. And then there’s LaVerne Cox, the phenomenal woman and activist. If I could rank LaVerne Cox instead of Sophia, she’d be #1 on this list. But alas, I have to rank Sophia. And we didn’t see that much of her this season. But her sex ed anatomy lesson was so great.
4. Miss Rosa
Miss Rosa did everyone the hugest favor this season: she took out Vee. It hurt to watch her find out she was going to die, but it was so great to see her backstory and to see her leave Litchfield in a way that was so suitable for her. I’ll miss her next season.
1. Crazy Eyes
Crazy Eyes is probably the best person at Litchfield. Yeah, she’s a little unhinged. But she speaks mad truth. I hated seeing Vee manipulate her the way she did. But as per usual, Crazy Eyes always comes out on top. My life is empty now that I have to wait another year for more Suzanne.
