HARD ACT TO FOL­LOW

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

THE lat­est and fi­nal sea­son of lands on Net­flix this Fri­day, so it’s a per­fect time to re­visit Piper (Tay­lor Schilling) and the rest of the in­mates at Litch­field Pen­i­ten­tiary. daugh­ter to live the life of a to­tal in­valid who is en­tirely de­pen­dent on her for every­thing. She makes Gypsy shave her head. To use a wheel­chair. And eat through a feed­ing tube in her stomach. As Gypsy Rose’s aware­ness of her mother’s sick plot grows, so too does her de­sire to break free, with hor­rific con­se­quences. This episode jux­ta­poses Dee Dee’s grue­some end with Gypsy Rose’s birth and early child­hood. It soon be­comes ap­par­ent that Dee Dee’s fraught re­la­tion­ship with her own dom­i­neer­ing mother set her on this twisted jour­ney. Af­ter all the ma­nip­u­la­tive hor­ror we have wit­nessed from Dee Dee and Gypsy Rose, the se­ries will leave view­ers feel­ing sym­pa­thy for both women who, it seems, were only driven to hurt peo­ple in the quest for love and hap­pi­ness.
