What's up with Alex and Piper? The former couple must testify in the trial of Alex's old drug boss Kubra—but Alex takes a deal after convincing Piper khổng lồ lie on the stand. Alex gets out—but not really, considering Kubra didn't get convicted và she lives in fear of his revenge. Piper is spitting mad for most of the season (for obvious reasons) và convinces Polly khổng lồ tell Alex's parole officer that she's planning on fleeing the country. Cut to lớn Alex being caught in her apartment with a gun, violating her parole, & earning a one-way pass back khổng lồ Litchfield.


How about piper's other lover, Larry? He's got another lover: Piper's best friend Polly (yikes). Piper finds out that he's cheated while on leave for her grandmother's funeral, Piper figures out it's Polly, and then Larry và Polly visit Piper in prison to lớn ask for her blessing. Her response: "F—k you. F—k both of you."


Don't forget about the prison personnel. Pornstache returns, gets framed for Daya's pregnancy, & is fired. Figueroa is busy embezzling money from the prison to lớn her husband's (who is having an affair with a man) political campaign, which Caputo discovers (with help from Piper). Caputo nabs Figueroa's position as a result (but not before nabbing an, ahem, oral parting present from her). & Bennett (Daya's real baby daddy) confesses lớn Caputo—who doesn't want to lớn hear it.


Back to lớn the prisoners: Vee & Red's showdown. First, Red strangles Vee with a piece of plastic wrap but lets up short of killing her. Vee lets Red think that they're going to form a truce & then shows up in her greenhouse with a lock in a sock (and you can guess what happens next). The worst part of it all? Vee makes Crazy Eyes take the fall for the brutal beating.


Don't worry, Vee gets her due. Rosa, after learning she has only weeks to live, busts out of Litchfield with a stolen prison van. During her escape, she sees an escaped Vee along the side of the road—and runs her over in the most glorious moment of the season. #ByeFelicia.
