We’re jonesing for a fix of new Orange is the New Black harder than a pre-prison Tiffany (Taryn Manning), aka Pennsatucky, joneses for meth. And though there are no new episodes in sight until 2014, we do have some hints on what to expect. Oh, and speaking of Tiffany, the latest scoop is about how our little tweaker fared after the final scene in the season finale.
If you haven’t yet seen Season 1, please immediately do so. We mean it — go to the bathroom, gather some snacks, and cancel your plans for the next 13 hours. If you are up on the series and absolutely don’t want to be spoiled on anything... well, we’re not sure why you’re reading this, but stop immediately!
Okay, now that all those guys are gone, let’s talk about Tiffany. As you’ll recall, Season 1 ended with Piper (Taylor Schilling) knocking what was left of Tiff’s teeth into the dirt. Considering the brutality of the beatdown, we’re sure we’re not the only ones questioning whether Tiffany made it out of that prison yard scuffle alive.
Well, Taryn Manning has been promoted to series regular for next season, so unless this show is going to suddenly go supernatural and bring us her ghost, we think it's safe to say ‘Tucky is alive and kicking. We’re relieved, too. She may be a racist, homophobic meth head, but the love-to-hate-her relationship we have with Pennsatucky is at least as much a draw as Alex (Laura Prepon) and Piper’s on-again, off-again situation.
