Orange is the New Black Season 5 spoilers and predictions mentioned about Soso’s suicidal attempts after Poussey’s death in Season 4 finale.
In Season 4, prison guard Bailey killed Poussey Washington by suffocation. The devastating and unexpected death of Litchfield’s favorite character resulted to the tremendous heartbreak of Brook Soso. Others think her death is paralleled to an implicit Black Lives Matter movement and racial injustice that dominated the real-life news cycle. This was thought based on the unclear motive behind Poussey’s death.
While others are hurt with her passing, her girlfriend Brook Soso reportedly went back to her shell again. Actress Kimiko Glenn, who plays Brook Soso, told The Hollywood Reporter she’s also shocked with how Season 4 ended.
“I had a hunch that something was going to happen because things were going way too well. I thought I was going to get released from prison and that we were going to have a deal with that – that there would be some drama or that something would happen,” Glenn said.
“But I thought, ‘Samira is safe.’ She is adored and the most beloved character on this show. One-hundred percent, I thought she was going to be OK,” she added.
She cited Poussey’s death will also hint at Soso’s end. This is because the character felt trapped inside the Litchfield prison while facing the pain of Poussey’s death.
“I imagine she’s going to have a really tough time with it. She’s had such a tough go of it in general and she finally found someone she could really talk to. She had a bit purpose when she was with Poussey, because she was able to love someone and communicate with someone and have someone hear her and treat her with respect,” Glenn explained.
In addition, Glenn explained that Brook Soso will find it hard to recover in Orange is the New Black Season 5. This is because the character doesn’t have much of a family inside Litchfield. So, she won’t have an easy time dealing with things.
Bustle cited it’d be easy to predict Soso’s withdrawal from everyone and self-blame to Poussey’s death in the next season. As a result, Brook can commit another suicidal attempt.
Poussey once saved Soso’s life after her suicidal attempt in Orange is the New Black Season 4. More likely in season 5, she’ll succeed in her attempt since no one would stop her from doing it anymore.
Would Brook Soso commit suicide in Orange is the New Black Season 5? Or would she be able to recover after Poussey’s death?
