Spoilers ahead for Orange is the New Black Season 5.
While it was released a few weeks ago, fans of Netflix's Orange is the New Black are still recovering from its emotionally draining Season 5, as well as the explosive cliffhanger that left ten major characters in jeopardy. With Litchfield possibly becoming a setting of the past and a possible character death coming, next season will be chock full of crazy plot twist and spoilers that will have to be avoided in order to properly enjoy it. And actress Selenis Leyva has just revealed how she ensures she's not responsible for spoilers: she hands scripts back to production.
Selenis Leyva has played inmate Gloria Mendoza since the very first episode of Orange is the New Black. She just did a long form interview with THR about the most recent season of the show, as well as the mysterious and ominous looking Season 6. And it's here that she revealed how scared she is of spoilers, and why she gives her script back after she's learned her lines.
Well, that's one way to not piss off production. If any scripts end up getting leaked onto the internet, Selenis Levya will have her hands clean to continue doing her work. Smart move, Gloria.
And with the Season 5 cliffhanger serving as the show's biggest WTF moment so far, I wouldn't be surprised if Selenis Levya's approach to her script becomes mandatory for the cast. Everything is up in the air at Orange is the New Black, so it's going to be a very difficult job to keep the show's many secrets for a full year. I can't imagine all ten of the inmates in danger survive the raid by the SWAT team (Gloria herself might even go), so the advertising should also be pretty challenging. We saw AMC's The Walking Dead struggle with a similar cliffhanger last year, and the marketing for its last season had to be very creative.
While you'll have to wait until next summer to find out what happens to Gloria and the rest of the bunker inmates, you can catch Selenis Levya in Spider-Man: Homecoming when it swings into theaters on July 7th.
