Orange Is the New Black: Should Bennett Go to Prison?
On Orange Is the New BlackSeason 2, Bennett (Matt McGorry) got dangerously close to blowing his entire life up when he confessed to Caputo that he's the one who got Daya (Dascha Polanco) pregnant. Fortunately for him, Caputo decided to sweep the situation under the rug. But does Bennett really belong behind bars? Matt McGorry and Dascha Polanco recently argued the situation.
Daya clearly did want to sleep with Bennett, but that doesn't change the fact that a guard sleeping with an inmate is against the law. So, should Bennett do the time? In an interview with TV Guide, Dascha and Matt disagreed.
"In the eyes of the law, yeah [Bennett deserves to go to prison]," Matt said. He added that as an actor he of course has to get into his character's mindset, but that in the end what happened between Daya and Bennett "is highly illegal and non-consensual sex."
Dascha, on the other hand, takes issue with the idea that the sex was actually non-consensual. "She's as responsible as he is. So, it's really consensual... There was an attraction. I guess that's the romance part of me."
Matt acknowledged that there was definitely a mutual attraction, but added that because of the situation, the lines are still blurry. "When you have so many women and so few men and the power differential, it may influence an inmate's mind in a way that she's not necessarily aware of."
