Confirmed to arrive in 2017, Orange is the New Black Season 5 predictions on Daya killing Correctional Officer Thomas Humphrey is anticipated. She might also be the next murder victim along with Lolly inside Litchfield.
Several speculations on Daya’s fate inside prison is talked as well as Lolly’s return in Season 5. Having these two characters in the next season certainly beautifies the series’ episodes.
Recalling Orange is the New Black Season 4 cliffhanger, Daya was seen picking the gun while the other inmates surrounded her. There was no clear hint if she actually pulled the trigger and to whom did she point the gun to.
According to theories, there is a possibility she is pointing the gun to Correctional Officer Humphrey. In our previous report, she has a big motive on doing the crime as per Maria’s orders. In the cliffhanger, there was a woman with her, however, her face was blurred.
There is also a chance Gloria stops the act causing Daya to prevent herself from committing the murder. This theory contrasted when Dascha Polanco, the actress who played Daya, confirmed the character will absolutely pull the trigger due to postpartum depression.
The depressive episode was provoked from frustrating death of Poussey in Season 4 plus the pressure inside the Litchfield prison. It is also possible her failure on raising her own child triggered it as well. “The boiling point has tipped over. At this point, Daya is thinking, ‘F—- everyone. I’m going for it,” Polanco told The Hollywood Reporter.
“She’s in a dark place. Dayanara’s a victim of her circumstance. It’s a cycle that keeps on repeating itself. She’s been fighting it for so long and now there’s no way of her fighting it. Right now it’s her accepting things and I think she’s over it,” she added.
“At one point, there’s a role reversal and you see her become a mother to her own mom. But there’s something she’s harboring inside and you know she’s going to have a point where she’s going to break and rebel. For the most part, she’s very disappointed with the people around her,” Polanco continued.
Along with these Orange is the New Black Season 5 predictions, Lolly’s return and death is also anticipated. Lori Petty cited she’s not sure yet in the meantime if her character will return or not. But she’s hoping she will. “I’m just waiting on the phone call to get back on the plane. I’m sure it will come, but we have 13 episodes and they’ve got a lot to take care of, so we’ll see,” Petty said during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
Meanwhile, Petty confirmed that Orange is the New Black Season 5 episode 1 is filmed. Hence, fans should expect its arrival in 2017.
