Chapman is completely gay, and not bisexual at all.Consider first that Chapman's two love interests, Vause and Larry, could not possibly be more different, completely apart from the fact that Vause is a woman and Larry is a man. Chapman is clearly passionate about Vause, but about Larry? Hardly. That by itself is only suggestive, but now consider some further facts: in "Bora Bora Bora," when the other inmates try to use Chapman to scare the girls in the scared straight program by claiming that Chapman is a lesbian rapist who will sexually assault them, what part of the accusation does Chapman feel the need to deny? Not the claim that she's a rapist, but that she's a lesbian: "I'm not even all the way like that." Why should it be so important to her not to be thought of as a lesbian, even though the whole prison knows by that point that she's having an affair with Vause? Then consider what she says later in that same scene, after the girl in the wheelchair calls her a "d**e f***t b***h," and she gets angry and decides to scare the girl for real. What does she tell her to really scare her? That in prison, she cannot run away or hide from herself. That here, she has to face who and what she truly is. What could Chapman be talking about? What specific facts about herself has she had to confront in prison? Given the overall context of the scene, doesn't it seem likely that she's talking about her attraction to and feelings for Vause? Doesn't it seem possible that Chapman has spent the eight years since she left Vause telling herself 'Oh, it's just a phase, lots of girls experiment in college, but now I'm settling down with a man. See, I'm engaged to Larry. I'm completely normal.' She wants to tell herself that it was just a phase then, and that, really, it's just a phase now in prison. But maybe she's really just gay and in denial.
Fig is the warden.We never actually meet him, just get these vague threats about budget cuts and how he'll react. Plus she drives a Mercedes.
Larry's Dad threw Piper's case.It seems flimsy that she is in prison for over a year for carrying money (not even drugs). She was also encouraged not to go to trial and the statute of limitations was almost up? She is clearly living a clean life now. Wouldn't character witnesses exonerate or at least reduce the sentence even more? Larry's parents clearly don't advocate the relationship between Piper and Larry, so putting her in prison for over a year is a great way to get her out of the picture.
Alex lied about her mom dying when Piper was breaking up with her.We've seen that Alex is not completely truthful with Piper, since she lied about snitching on her. And she tried to use her mom's death to manipulate Piper into staying with her. And the timing was awfully convenient. Since there's no proof her mom died other than her own word, I'd say there's a pretty good chance she was just lying. If Piper decided to stay with her because of it, she could have found out that she'd been lied to when there wasn't a funeral or anything, but maybe Alex wasn't thinking that far ahead or else would have just made up a reason why Piper couldn't go to the funeral.
Figueroa will end up in Litchfield.Eventually her embezzling will come out, and in a twist of irony she will be sentenced to Litchfield.
Alex will take the blame for Piper assaulting Pennsatucky.If the rumors that Laura Prepon is leaving the show are true then after taking the blame for said action, Alex will either be moved to a different prison or moved to maximum security.
Tricia's death wasn't an accident.Take a look at her when she's talking to Nicky. She tells her she's going to make everything right with Red and that they would be square. Also, earlier in the episode she mentions that Mercy hasn't been answering her calls and she's had barely any contact with her. Then she is given a bunch of drugs by Mendez to get rid of. She realized her life was hell right now- Red didn't trust her and she wasn't one of her girls anymore, her girlfriend wouldn't talk to her and she still had the looming threat of Mendez around. This led her to kill herself.
Healy's first wife left him for another woman.Just take a look at Healy: a guy in his 50s who's weary and yet has a Russian mail-order bride. He comes across as someone who is desperate to not be lonely. Thus, it's possible that his first wife turned out to be gay, destroying his heart, and that's why he has a weird vendetta against lesbians.
Vee will attempt an escape.
Piper will get out of prison at some point in the series, though will stay as a side character.After getting out of prison, there won't be as much focus on her, but she will work to support prisoner's rights and campaign for better treatment. There will also be some following of her life after prison and attempt to try for a normal life.
Miss Claudette was never convicted of murder.She's a very clean woman and left the place spotless (save for some blood on the floor) after killing the client. When she's given a chance to appeal for early release, it's stated to be because of immigration reform. Murder wasn't mentioned or implied.
Healy is crazy infatuated with Piper.Ever since she came to the prison, he always took a special interest in her. He sent her to the SHU for erotic dancing with another woman, but we've never seen any other character get sent there for lesbian activity. He sent Piper to the SHU out of jealousy.
Daya will have a Convenient MiscarriageCliche as it may be, it'd probably solve that storyline. There'd be less evidence that Daya and Bennett were in a relationship.
Caputo keeps Daya's and Bennett's secretAnd helps them out in the third season
Caputo goes to extreme lengthsCombining the above WM Gs with a darker twist... Caputo will see to it that Daya miscarries - covertly so he can keep up appearances and his job.
