The final episode was phenomenal. But I have to say, that opening flashback is the single most distressing and disturbing scene I've yet scene. Were those disabled women and babies being loaded onto a truck to be torn apart by dogs?

Last 3 episode were epic, and yes that opening scene was very dark.

I can't recall too many times where I am unable to put into words how much I enjoy a TV show like I do this one.

I can't even call it "enjoyment" but it's become my all time favourite show.

I thought season 3 was weaker then when the finale finished I was like "oh...they know EXACTLY what they are doing".

I recommend it with caution, as for me I have been triggered into anxiety attacks numerous times. But it's far too f***ing clever to ignore and there has NEVER been anything like it, and what's even more amazing is it's made for some of the best conversation I've ever had.

I keep watching that opening scene thinking "f**k".

I thought we'd always be left to read between the lines what happened to these people.

Just watched the finale. This season ended very strong after a frustrating beginning. Even though June consistently avoids punishments others receive, and as convenient as that is, the importance of this show Can't be ignored. This is an important show. So is OITNB, and it ended much better that the previous two years.

Don't worry, I'm a fan of the show and even I didn't recognize the abbreviation right away lol.
