Orange is the New Black Season 5 release date remains uncertain in the meantime. Yet, news about Lolly Whitehall’s return is already the most talked. Would she be the next big character to die after Poussey Washington’s death in Season 4?
Lori Petty, who played the role as Lolly Whitehill, was asked several times about the fate of her character. She mentioned that she didn’t know how the writers to create twists about a character’s path in Orange is the New Black Season 5.
During an interview with Huffington Post, there was a small hint wherein it stated there might be a possibility that Lolly should have been dead in Season 4. But that scene didn’t happen. Maybe, yet to happen. If this is true, fans could anticipate another big character’s death in the Litchfield prison.
Lori Petty denied this claim. “No, my ego’s too big to think that. You can’t kill me! You already killed what I think is one of the greatest actors on our show, Samira Wiley. You can’t kill everybody in the house!” she said.
Nonetheless, a lot of rumors on the web tackled the high chances of her being the next victim of correctional officers in Litchfield. Like for example, Correctional Officer Baxter Bayley accidentally murdered Poussey Washington in Season 4. Hence, with the mystery behind Lolly and Mr. Healy in the previous season will likely turn out something huge in Season 5.
Based from Lori Petty’s descriptions on Mr. Healy, he seemed to appear manipulative and took advantage of Lolly’s mental issues. If his role developed in Orange is the New Black Season 5, he has the highest possibilities to take Lolly’s life leading another murder case within the prison. Hopefully, this won’t happen since Lori confirmed Healy’s character doesn’t appear like a murderer.
“I thought Healy had a lot of empathy with these women, and maybe it crosses the line a little bit. He’s like a compadre where he’s maybe supposed to be more of a boss,” Lori cited.
“But I think the two of them had a real special connection where maybe he saw his mother or maybe he saw himself in her,” she added.
In the meantime, CO Bennett’s return is yet for confirmation. Matt McGorry told Bustle he doesn’t have idea on how the Orange is the New Black Season 5 will turn out. “At this point, I don’t know what will happen next. I wish I could give you more information, but I don’t know anything at this point,” he said.
