It sounds funny until you remember what happened to the family bunny in "Fatal Attraction". Here's a view from someone who doesn't like season 2. http://spectator.org/articles/59841/orange-new-black-proves-tv-being-written-binge-watchers Needless to say I disagree with Mr./Ms McClay re: the Vee/Red etc storyline. I also vehemently disagree with his/her portrayal of the Red & Healy storylines. Specifically on Red. "Red drew most of her social capital back in the day from smuggling in goods via the kitchen. But since she’s been exiled from the kitchen, how can she regain power? By. . .smuggling in goods a different way. The status quo keeps on getting aggressively restored..." Red THOUGHT that was where her power came from... smuggling goods into the prison. But when her supply chain opened up again and she tried to ply her "friends" with goodies, she was rebuffed. Gina, Norma, Nicky, Morello (not sure about Boo ) didn't need goodies to be her friend. They needed HER. They needed an apology for Red endangering one of them in the search for power and they needed an apology for Red deserting them as soon as her power was lost. What kind of message did that desertion send to her "girls". That I don't trust your love/respect unless I can buy it? And how much does Red actually value their love/respect if such a commodity CAN be bought? As for Healy... Healy, a prison counselor who actually abandoned Piper to die back in season one (remember that?), pops back up as a sad misunderstood guy. He spends a lot of time trying to set up some kind of group therapy club with violent-psychopath-turned-cute-sidekick Pennsatucky. Why? It’s not really clear... I really thought the Healy storyline was well done. So often we look at prison through the inmates eyes or through the family's eyes but here we see what happens when a gentle soul is subjected to the soul sucking effect of incarceration even when the 'incarcerated" get to go home every night. In this season we see the aftereffects of the Piper/ Pennsatucky beat down through counselor Healy's eyes. A man who was finally pushed by the bloody faces of these two women to do what Figaroa TOLD him to do in the final. "Get some effing therapy, man!" While in therapy we see the man's insecurities and foibles in display, but we also see something else. We see his interest in HIS job, a job which could earn him 75 dollars an hour not to mention respect in the private sector, return full force. We see him practice HIS counselor's techniques on Pennsatucky and then watch him try to branch out into the "safe place" counseling program. As laudable as his new found conversion is, one wonders at the blind eye he still turns towards the other women. Without Taystee there to feed him intell, he's woefully behind the times on the sea change that has occurred in the prison power structure. So behind he can't understand why his "safe place" is failing... because its not safe to talk there.
