* NeverMessWithGranny: Most of the older inmates are serving long sentences for serious crimes and have spent most of their lives in prison, so they're surprisingly scary. Basically, if you're looking for gangsters, murderers or just someone who lives by the philosophy that MurderIsTheBestSolution, the 50+ years old demographic is the one to go to. And in season 5 it's the gang of older ladies [[AndZoidberg (plus Gina)]] who [[spoiler:takes down Piscatella.]]

** Season finale {{cliffhanger}}s have become a tradition since season 3, which is especially cruel in a Netflix series which begs to be binge-watched in a few days (or less) per season. Have fun waiting an entire year to see if someone dies!

* WritersCannotDoMath: [[spoiler:In the end of season 5 the guards are repeatedly ten prisoners short in their count. Given that ten are hiding in the basement (Frieda, Red, Gloria, Flores, Nicky, Piper, Alex, Suzanne, Taystee and Cindy), two've gotten out (Dogget and Chang) and there is one additional (Linda), it should be eleven.]]

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Discussed by Josh from MCC and Caputo while [[spoiler: the black inmates are holding them hostage during the riot.]]

to:

* BlackDudeDiesFirst: BlackComedy: Frequently, particularly season 5 is heavily loaded with whis with the inmates [[spoiler:Abusing the prison workers taken hostages.]]
* BlackComedyRape: While sexual molestation of [[spoiler:the hostages by the inmates is portrayed as disturbing, two cases: Luscheck's and Stratman's are in the same time PlayedForLaughs.]]
* BlackDudeDiesFirst:
**
Discussed by Josh from MCC and Caputo while [[spoiler: the black inmates are holding them hostage during the riot.]]]]
** Invoked with the black guard in season 5, as [[spoiler:Maria pulls him to be the first for torture, pointing out how it's payback for the racist bias of the guards. Ultimately averted, since the inmates don't hate this particular guard too much, and the "honor" goes to Dixon instead.]]


Added DiffLines:

** The Latina deliquents and the neo-nazis in Season 5. Under certain circumstances they get along swimmingly.
** Season 5 delivers it to a great scale with the inmates and the guards. [[spoiler:When the guards are taken hostages, some of the inmates resort to torture, rape, molestation, beating or even murder.]]


Added DiffLines:

** Angie and Leanne are difficult to be taken seriously, but [[spoiler:give them a gun...]].
