My OITNB Season 3 Episode 1 Thoughts blog thanks to GoDaddy coupon CJCSIGLERC

Godaddy is a great way to start your own blog. With GoDaddy coupon CJCSIGLERC you can get one for just $0.99. That means you can blog about whatever you like! I like to blog about television, one of which is Orange is the New Black.

The first episode to season 3 was a little bit of a Debbie-Downer for me.

First off, some good things. The warden or whatever his name is, he is in charge now. It seems that things are running smoother for the inmates. That was a nice sign.

Piper is still Piper. She is still somewhat oblivious to the fact that she is in the same boat as the rest of the prisoners. She always thinks that she is better than everyone else and doesn't think that she has to play by the same rules.

Somehow, and for whatever reason (mostly convenience for the writers, which is lame), Alex shows back up. Something about a gun. This was absolutely some weak writing just to get to the two characters in the same room together.

Red is back. She seems to be a nicer version of herself, but I do not think that this will last. The scene with her sickeningly leech-like family was great. Red is the only one worth anything in that family. She is doing more on the inside of a jail that those losers are doing outside of it. I love her character.

Crazy eyes is having a hard time letting go of Vee, which should be expected. Vee played her, and since Suzanne is not smart, and is developmentally delayed, it makes a lot of sense that she still may not catch on how much Vee played her. She may also not want to realize it. Who can blame her?

However, story wise, what was terribly sad about this episode was the main events, Mother's Day. All the kids came to celebrate it with their incarcerated mothers. At one point, a child goes missing and the whole thing has to be shut down. All prisoners on their bellies and the kids freaking out. I'm not so sure that would happen in real life. It seems a bit traumatic on the kids. It just broke my heart for all of them. Then there was poor Poussey. Missing her mom like crazy when others couldn't care less.

The final sad scene to this episode was the young mother whose gang boyfriend would no longer let her child come see her. It was such a catch-22. She probably did bad stuff with that man she got pregnant with. Due to circumstances, she winds up in jail, and this gang member doesn't. Yet, he tries to turn his life around for the child, which is a good thing, but just so sad for the young mother.

Heart-wrenching episode.
