Once again "Orange is the New Black" ended with a thrilling cliffhanger in the finale of season 4, leaving its viewers rooting for a familiar character's comeback in season 5.

Before the previous season ended, Daya (Dascha Polanco) was shown in a completely new light. Daya was usually soft-spoken and nice, but in the "Orange is the New Black" season 4 finale, a rebellious aggressive side to her was shown when she got a hold of corrections officer Thomas Humphrey's (Michael Torpey) gun and pointed it directly at him.

Officer Humphrey has built up a nasty reputation among Litchfield's inmates, which means he can come back in season 5 as a vengeful antagonist out to get back at Daya, that is, if he can manage to slip off from his current situation with Daya safely.

Much speculation has surrounded the "Orange is the New Black" season 4 finale, leaving fans to conclude that Daya might get sent to the Special Housing Unit, mostly known as the SHU, in season 5.

With Daya going deep into trouble due to her actions, "Orange is the New Black" fans are rooting for the comeback of her former paramour and father to her child John Bennett (Matt McGorry) in season 5 to save Daya.


Rumors about officer Bennetts' comeback has spread throughout the internet when actor Matt McGorry recently posted a photo with Laverne Cox, who plays Sophia Burset in "Orange is the New Black," on his Instagram account. Unfortunately, there is still no official confirmation regarding Bennett's return in season 5.

On another note, the rebellion among Litchfield inmates triggered by the wrongful cover-up of Poussey's (Samira Wiley) death is one more thing fans are expecting to be covered in season 5.

The Netflix original series "Orange is the New Black" season 5 has no specific premiere date yet, but is expected to air in June 2017.
