The game ends up being a peaceful one and Nicky is unaware of Lorna's condition in the finale. And that's another thing that's been established about Frieda's past: the crimes that landed her in prison were violent, and they happened a long, long time ago. Linda uses her newfound power to enact revenge on ex-boyfriend Caputo, until he eventually quits.
"I wasn’t expecting to cry this hard at 3 am but here we are,” cried a third. The final season will continue to follow the lives of the OITNB inmates — whether in or out of prison — but who exactly will appear during the final run will be up for viewers to discover.
Baxter Bayley (Alan Aisenberg) — Bayley, the white guard who accidentally killed Poussey, returned in the fifth season as a broken man attempting to live with what he had done. And she certainly doesn't tolerate any abuses, because she's willing to come up with violent solutions to protect herself â and she harbors no regrets for taking retribution on her husband's anatomy, even though it's meant that she's lived her life behind bars.
She feared for her life upon returning to the maximum security facility and requested to be placed away from bosses Carol Denning (Russell), Barb Denning (Phillips) and new enemy Red in Florida.
Jackie Strause, [This story contains spoilers through season six of Netflix's Orange Is the New Black.]. She uses boyfriend Hopper to help smuggle drugs into the prison, where daughter Daya and partner Daddy sell them. After developing a surprising relationship with C.O. Alex ends up ripping up her grad school application and appears to commit to doing what she needs to survive while still on the inside. She gravitates towards roommate Frieda Berlin (Dale Soules) and Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett (Taryn Manning) until reuniting with some of her old Litchfield friends when joining the kickball game.
Cited as the "epic conclusion" to the much-loved show, the powerful moments and thought-provoking topics proved too much for some viewers who stayed up all night to binge the series.
Joe Caputo (Nick Sandow) — The former warden is sidelined by MCC/PolyCon after the riot and is eventually forced to either back PolyCon or fight for Taystee as the season unfolds; he chooses the latter. The season seven trailer shows her eyeing old friends Taystee and Cindy.
It was revealed that, years ago, Frieda had also betrayed the Denning sisters to get placed out of Max and into minimum security. Gloria Mendoza (Selenis Leyva) — Going into season six, Gloria was laser-focused on seeking revenge against Maria Ruiz (Jessica Pimentel) for stealing her chance to see her kids and ending the riot. The friends had yet to confront each other when season six ended, saving the fallout for season seven. Frieda Berlin (Dale Soules) — Frieda also betrayed her friend, Galina "Red" Reznikov (Kate Mulgrew), in a bid to save herself after the events of the riot.
Daddy isn't supposed to die - but suffers a fatal seizure in her cell after downing all of the cocktail. It wasn't until Cindy joined Taystee on the bus to court and when the former took the stand that Taystee realized why she was going down for a murder she didn't commit. Between her octopus neck tattoo and when Red called her a "badass biker chick," it sounds like Frieda was a career criminal.
Fan favourite character, Daddy, played by Vicci Martinez, is slaughtered in episode one. While the older women in the prison complained that their concerns and needs were frequently ignored, Frieda in particular bemoaned the lack of respect afforded their group despite that fact that they all have a serious criminal history. Frieda was introduced in Season 2, as one of the "Golden Girls" who populated Red's new clique after she was exiled from her kitchen and lost her family.
Since debuting in 2013, OITNB has been a platform for timely topics and modern human stories while exposing the injustices of the criminal justice system and prison industrial complex.
Instead of listening to Gloria and trying to stop the potentially deadly game of kickball, Luschek is last seen driving away in the Back to the Future collector's item.
During the call, Daya asks Deila to adopt her daughter and Pornstache has an emotional response upon learning that the baby survived childbirth, unlike what Aleida had initially told them. Nicky Nichols (Natasha Lyonne) — Nicky's loyalties are tested when she finds common ground with cell-block boss Barb Denning (Phillips).
Despite agreeing to go along with their plan to frame Pornstache as a rapist and the father of their unborn baby, Bennett gets cold feet after a visit to Daya's stepfather's house and leaves their new crib on the side of the road before driving off and vanishing.
Despite her protests about being an employee of MCC, Linda's head is shaved when the Ohio facility is hit with a lice outbreak only moments before MCC comes to release her — much to Boo's enjoyment.
George "Pornstache" Mendez (Pablo Schreiber) — The formerly sadistic guard-in-charge of Litchfield served time in prison for the illegal relationship he had with Daya.
Suzanne "Cray Eyes" Warren (Uzo Aduba) — Suzanne also struggled with keeping the secret about Piscatella, an order she was following from Cindy.
