Review: Orange Is the New Black (Season 5, Episode 1)
Jane Ingalls | Orange Is the New Black Wiki | Fandom
Sister Jane Ingalls is a former inmate at Litchfield Penitentiary. Her character is based on real-life pacifist nun Sister Ardeth Platte. Whilst on the surface she comes off as mature and rigid, Sister Ingalls is a very kind, well-spoken, and accepting individual. Season Two presents a complex background for Ingalls, who is revealed to be severely flawed.
Right now Litchfield is about as strong and stable as British politics, but hope of revolution hovers on the horizon. Much like the British government, Litchfield penitentiary is destabilising into chaos as inmates fight for justice following the tragic death of one of their own, Poussey Washington Samira Wiley. But as the riot gains momentum, Poussey takes a backseat as far too many inmates fight for adequate screen-time in this rather bloated season premiere. Unfortunately, I was left disappointed.
You see a flaccid penis in the first 15 minutes of Orange is the New Black. It epitomizes what this season is about: flipping the script of gendered violence. This season is a thought experiment in radical feminist revenge.
