Aargh the lady who was left in the dessert was awful, hope to god that’s not based on a true storyI was a huge fan of the previous season after thinking I had given up on the show forever with the riot series which I only watched about 2 episodes of. But s6 was amazing plot wise - I loved the carol barb storyline and was heartbroken by Taystee's. And the introduction of ICE as that shocking twist I didn't see coming really hit me.hard too.
Sorry for so long on the series bstore but had to convey how much I loved that one as comparison for how 'meh' this was...at best. At worst it was wayyy too preachy. I get that they wanted to make a real impact for the charity but that just shouldn't be allowed to affect content. Plus when has the show ever struggled to pack an emotional punch -without sacrificing subtlety?
So.while.there was nothing i hated there was nothing I really loved the whole series either. Eh.it waa so.bland and rushed to include everything it wanted to....one thing that was bad was that new character who was.separated from her kids...but then ended up probably dieing with a messed up ankle in the desert by the border ?! I felt like that was an uneccessary step too far - as if her story wasn't tragic enough?
And I echo the person wondering how accurate the ICE.depiction is. I have no doubt they are doing all sorts of horrendous inhumane things every day. But the small things - the lack of rights -access to phones or lawyers for example. Or the girl.who.got sent to.Colombia who was picked up in a.club and.thought she was born in the US and had literally no connections in Colombia ? The.children in the courtroom? Anyone know?
