Review: Orange Is The New Black Season 5 Episode 12 “Tattoo You”

Motherhood, relationships and the choice between personal and social responsibility have been frequently visited throughout this season. In some cases they have provided proper, impactful character arcs, while others are overshadowed by the chaos. This episode features the same mixed bag, as while it was nice revisiting Piper and Alex’s relationship, especially through the flashbacks, the two lack the significance in this season for their story to have weight in this penultimate episode. This is particularly important considering everything else is resolving. Such resolution is played around with for a bit, and the outcome is both saddening and gratifying. ‘Orange Is The New Black’s’ riot has not worked, but it does make the future of the show extremely intriguing. 7/10
