There's a lot going on in Season 2 of Netflix's Orange Is the New Black, and very little of it has to do with Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), who is ostensibly the show's protagonist. Creator Jenji Kohan made no secret of the fact that plot lines were going to be more equally distributed in the sophomore season, pulling the focus away from Piper and allowing other characters like Taystee (Danielle Brooks), Miss Rosa (Barbara Rosenblat) and newcomer Vee (Lorraine Toussaint) to move into the spotlight. But Schilling says she frankly didn't even notice the difference.
"I felt like it was hard to even know that there was less of it, because what was happening felt so dynamic, and it felt like the character of Piper was moving in such an interesting way," the Emmy-nominated Schilling tells TVGuide.com. "That's what I was focused on."

Do Anna and Elsa have a connection to any of our favorite Once Upon a Time characters? — Nathan
You mean other than Elsa having been locked up in Rumple's vault all those years? It sure sounds like it! "Maybe there is an unlikely friendship that Charming had in his past that maybe literally changed the entire path of his life," Josh Dallas told me at Comic-Con when I asked the exact same question. Safe money is on him being friends with Anna over Elsa, though.

Orange Is the New Black consistently finds ways to make us empathize with unexpected characters, but there are a few that continue to polarize. Alex Vause, most notably, has divided the fandom in two: those who love the four-eyed vixen and those who loathe her with equal fervor.

A note: We are not saying either Piper or Alex is a "good" person. They're both terrible human beings, but that's not the issue at hand. The question is: Who is more terrible? Here's the evidence:

It's been almost a year since we first binge-watched Orange Is the New Black. (As for how many times we've watched it in its entirety since then, we prefer to remain mum). On Friday, the Netflix series finally returns for its anticipated second season. So what better time to look back on where we left off and what's next for our favorite convicts!
