ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK MEME
- Eight Inmates. Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren [3/8]
"How comes everyone calls me ‘Crazy Eyes’?" -Suzanne
I love Suzanne. Suzanne is a fascinating character. Sure, at times, she’s down right crazy -what about peeing in Piper and Miss Claudette’s bunk -to the latter’s grand dismay? But she is compelling, and as she says herself she’s a “nice person”. After Alex, she’s the first person who reached out to Piper when Red was starving her. But Alex and Piper have history. Suzanne was a stranger and yet she offered her help -and peppers- out of sheer generosity, without expecting anything in return -but maybe a little gratitude. And maybe also a little love. I hurt for her when Larry called her a wacko on the radio (fuck you, Larry!) because, she’s so much more -and people like Larry, they don’t even try to see it. She quotes Shakespeare by memory, she writes poetry, she throws her pie for you and she’s a kind soul. I can’t wait to learn more of her backstory. Because, yeah, she might be downright crazy at times, but that doesn’t make her less of a fascinating girl and I love her! Kudos to Uzo Aduba for a wonderful performance.
