If you're reading this, you've finished Season 4 of Orange Is the New Black, a show you wait all year for only to finish in one sitting.
Take a moment to commend yourself for your bravery and perseverance — it was quite the journey.
And if you've finished Season 4, that means you know what happens in the penultimate episode, "The Animals."
Yes, that episode and that scene from that episode.
Poussey Washington (Samira Wiley), one of most beloved characters on the show, was killed off in what is now easily one of the most controversial and emotional moments from the series.
OITNB fans quickly took to social media to process, vent, and discuss the shocking loss of such a beloved character.
First came denial. Some people couldn't even believe the scene happened — was it all a dream?
And then came anger, because frankly how dare you.
Of course, there was depression:
How could you watch that scene without getting emotional?
Spin-offs were written up...
...Wi-Fi network names were changed...
...T-shirts were designed...
...and better times were remembered.
On Twitter, people shared their disappointment using #PousseyDeservedBetter:
After hearing about Poussey's death, some refused to watch the last episode — or any of the show this season:
People processed their grief with memes...
...drawing fan art...
...and by breaking down the most tear-jerking scenes from the season.
This season's final episodes also featured a flashback of Poussey in New York City. The moment where she turns and smiles into the camera, breaking the fourth wall, is something a lot of fans are holding onto.
