*** It gets worse later. Poussey, unlike most of the other girls, lead a decent life, was brought up by loving parents and was generally a happy person. Her reason for being in prison? Possession of less than an ounce of pot (which, [[DirtyCop knowing how cops]] [[FantasticRacism on this show are]], might have been planted on her as a pretext to arrest her) and how do we even come across this information? [[spoiler: Because Poussey was killed in trying to protect her friend.]]

* SeasonalRot: While there's still some debate about whether Season 5 is outright ''bad'', it has the lowest Metacritic score of any of the show's seasons by quite some distance, is widely considered the show's weakest season by fans (with Season 3 being the only one even coming close in that regard), and even creator Jenji Kohan publicly apologised for the drop in quality.

* FandomBerserkButton: Some fans of the show get upset if you refer to Suzanne by her in-story nickname of "Crazy Eyes" because itís ableist. The creators seem to have taken notice, as even the show's characters almost never call her that in Season 4.

** Early in Season 5 we get DayInTheLimeLight episode for Janae that flashes back to her middle school years when she visited a prestigious, predominantly white academy. The moral of the flashback seems to be Janae's resentment towards white students getting better educational conditions than black or Hispanic students which is a fine point but what really oversells it is the moment when young Janae sees an all white production of Theatre/DreamGirls. Out of everyone in that entire school, did really ''no one'' find it awkward that they were whitewashing a traditionally African American cast and music group? Was Dream Girls the only play the school could think of?

*** And then when the prison gets privatised, they ramp up the exact same message just with "privatised for-profit prisons are broken."

** Bayley's utterly random background appearance during Poussey's flashbacks in the Season 4 finale, in a very clumsy attempt to hint that [[spoiler:they've been fated for their cafeteria encounter for years.]]

** Everyone seems to have a different mass shooting to use as a metaphor for Humphrey's supposed shooting spree in the Season 5 premiere.

** You wouldn't think a BungledSuicide could be hilarious, but [[spoiler: Gerber's attempt by drinking non-toxic dog hair dye, and his family's utter indifference]] manage to do it.
