Instead of leaving us to wonder what's next, the finale whispers the question of, where do we go from here? This, to me, is a conclusion that feels true and honorable, that isn't necessarily a happy ending but a right one that satisfies.

It's right that at the end, Orange Is the New Black would dispense with the magic and get straight to the point. It's brutal. It's unambiguous, and surprisingly emotional, and it's a fitting end for a show that helped launch a new era of TV.

There are moments throughout the 13 episodes when you might also wish to seek release, but don't bail before the poignant final bows over the end credits, which remind us what a remarkable and diverse ensemble once wore the orange.

Every season of Orange of the New Black has been accompanied by despair. That despair, however, has never felt more acute than it does in Orange is the New Black season seven, the show's final go-around.

It's a daunting task for a show with such a sprawling ensemble - there are 19 stars listed in the opening credits alone - but overall, OITNB delivers.

The final season of Orange is a pit of wasted potential, and even the skills of its supremely talented cast can't save these last episodes from feeling like a chore.

For as impossible a task as tying every loose end is, these last 13 episodes acquit themselves fairly well. But repetitive flashbacks and a couple hugely ambitious new plots unbalance the season and cause the series to make a shakier landing.

As the show gets toward its closing episodes, Kohan and company display a strong grasp on what these characters have gone through in what was a condensed time period, living and suffering lifetimes over less than two years of story-time.
