I am totally down with more singing Black Cindy as well as Pensatucky and Big Boo’s new friendship
I somehow missed the news that Lori Petty was going to be in the new season! Marvelous.
Also Laverne Cox’s hair is extra super fierce.
Seriously thinking about asking off work on June 12 to just marathon the entire new season.
Also, lol @ this show has gotten so much acclaim and they went with the Twitter blurbs for this promo
i know i love that they were quoting crazy twitter handles
this is perfect timing! Just finished re-watching previous seasons last night. SO so excited!
I’m noticing Nicky is missing from all of those photos, which has me nervous.
Noooo don’t say that!
freaking hell! they always catch me in exam period!
I will be failing ALL my exams.
I dunno, guys… I just finished watching season two, finally, a couple weeks ago. Definitely didn’t feel like it had my attention in the same way the first season did. But you know I’m gonna marathon at least the first half of this as soon as it hits anyhow.
It was the lack of Vause that did it.
Eeeeeeeee!!! Also JoJo Whilden sounds like my mom talking about Joss Whedon.
I don’t care how many times I see it I will never not have a physical swooning reaction to that Ruby Rose clip.
Right?!? If I ever need confirmation that I’m gay I just have to watch Ruby Rose wink at me.
The only thing I’m disappointed about is Pennsatucky no longer being the kind of antagonist she was in the first season. She reminds me so much of SO MANY of the girls I grew up with, so it just sits weird with me because the awfulness was so realistic (and so gratifying to my younger self who had to deal with those girls like they were the “norm”) and having all that sort of swept under the rug is a major downer.
On the other hand I Pennsatucky/Big Boo is sort of the crackship BroTP from my dreams so…
TURN ON THE CLOSED CAPTIONS
Oh my. That is horrible captioning work. Sorry for any deaf folks who wanted to watch the trailer and have any idea what is going on…
Does YouTube use a robot for captioning?
I’m used to it, EVERY spanish captioning on YouTube is awful and obnoxious.
hahahahhaha oh my god, this is too good. “once in a Santa Clause isn’t real a thong”
I just hope they did not resort to soapy solutions in this season (introducing impossible plots just for the kicks). Somehow I dislike putting Ruby Rose character between Piper and Alex, I think their dynamics is already interesting, no need for additional devices. But we’ll see how that turns out :)
I’m just glad Larry is finally out of the picture. Love triangles are stupid but they’d be less stupid if they all consisted of women…
It seems that Daya’s mom is gonna end up dead or out of Litchfield, because Elizabeth Rodríguez was cast as a regular on Fear the Walking Dead.
That’s a shame because I wanted to see more details on that mother-daughter relationship.
The relationship between Daya and Jonh Bennet is too yuck for my taste, that abuse of power thing.
As long as there are no scheduling conflicts between the two shows, I don’t think she’ll be going anywhere.
I really hope so, because FTWD is not even out yet and I kinda hated already because of Alycia Debnam Carey. I can’t get any information if Lexa will return to The 100.
It’s worth noting Laverne Cox likely isn’t even in the show any more. After marginalizing her character waay down last season to practically nothing, I notice she doesn’t appear on any IMDB cast lists for any of the season 3 episodes. The usual-typical… there to have a short trans-themed sub-plot or two, out as soon as they squeezed all the media attention about how revolutionary it was. Ho-hum.
Needs more Ruby Rose! My head gets light every time I see that wink.
Every. Single. Time.
