Netflix dropped the first official trailer for Orange Is the New Black's fourth season Tuesday and it is a doozy!
After the wonderfully heartwarming lake scene in the Season 3 finale, it seems life at Litchfield has reverted back to its typical scheming, tragic ways. Here are the six biggest reveals from the new trailer.
Piper's in major trouble: Piper (Taylor Schilling) has pissed off the wrong people this time. The used underwear kingpin admits she feels truly "unsafe" for the first time since entering the prison, and she isn't just being paranoid. The trailer shows Maria (Jessica Pimentel) threatening to "bury" Piper, which could explain the previously released photo of Piper being gagged and held down by some of the kitchen girls. What could Piper have done?!?
"It's sardine time, bitches":Now that Litchfield is a prison-for-profit, dozens of new inmates are squeezed into the already crowded premises, which means there's about 100 new people for our favorite characters to fight with. And based on an angry phone call for Caputo, it doesn't appear as though Litchfield has the staff it needs to handle the growing population.
Alex has a secret: Although we still haven't seen Alex (Laura Prepon) since Kubra's lackey pulled a gun on her in the greenhouse, her voice makes a brief appearance in the trailer. "Can you keep a secret?" Alex is heard asking Red (Kate Mulgrew). It's not a lot to go on, but we're excited to see that A) Alex is 100 percent alive and B) She's teaming up with her former prison mom once again.
Litchfield gets swatted: Caputo's reign as warden is really not working out as he had hoped. At one point in the trailer, a SWAT team storms Litchfield. But why? Could there be a prison riot heading our way?
Love is in the air: Despite all the insanity around them, it looks as though Poussey (Samira Wiley) and Soso (Kimiko Glenn) have managed to stay together. Maritza (Diane Guerrero) also shares a weighted look with one of the guards that reeks of a possible affair. And while I'm excited at the possibility of Maritza getting a real storyline this season, something tells me this won't end well.
What did you think of the trailer? Orange is the New Black returns on Friday, June 17.
