    Question: The guard is pissed at the inmate for how she handled the pregnancy cover-up. Was there a better way for her to handle it, or is he just mad that she slept with someone else?

    Answer:

    I think that being mad that she had sex with Pornstache was part of it, but I think he also was taken aback that she was acting/thinking like a criminal would, and not all lovey-dovey.

    He was also upset about the way he found out she was pregnant.

    HA! I do want to see Pornstache go down -- permanently.

    I have a problem with prison guard / inmate relationships but this one is really sweet. Not sure why it doesn't bother me since I recently voted to keep a former guard in prison (not in Community Corrections) for having sex with a couple of inmates.

    Maybe he was also upset that she was setting Pornstache up to take the fall for something he didn't do (get her pregnant, I mean). (We know that he deserved it, but the other guards likely didn't know of his offenses.)

    That's true, pornstache had been befriending him so he probably thinks of him as an idiot, but mostly harmless. He didn't know about the drug running and no one knows about Tricia's death.

    A little sunshine would be nice, y'all. Tell him about the drugs! I can't remember, does the pregnant woman know?

    Theories about Crazy Eyes' backstory?

    They seemed normal and loving (obviously looks can be deceiving) and she said they kept getting her out of the psych ward.

    I feel the same way. Why is this show so addicting? I feel completely obsessed with the story and characters

    I just finished the book. It's hard to believe they are the same story. The show is much different.

    I just started the book. It hasn't much grabbed me so far but everyone I know who's seen/read both prefers the book.

    I think you always prefer what you saw/read first.

    The GIFs are giving me a headache. I'm not sure I understand this new trend.

    I just finished the book. No real spoilers, but JIC:

    That would have made one incredibly boring TV show. I enjoyed the book, but it had none of the drama of the show. Completely different beasts.
