Piper Chapman Story Lines
Chapman is sentenced to 15 months in Litchfield Prison for Criminal Conspiracy and Money laundering; Vause had been arrested and named Chapman as an accomplice in order to reduce her own sentence. On her first day, Chapman gets felt up by guard George “Pornstache” Mendez and unintentionally offends prison matriarch Red, who runs the prison cafeteria. Chapman is assigned to the prison electrical workshop and accidentally pockets a screwdriver. Bloom, an aspiring writer, publishes a story about Chapman’s incarceration that paints unflattering portraits of her fellow inmates and the prison staff. Chapman chooses Bloom, but Vause breaks them up and spurns Chapman. Vause persuades Chapman to commit perjury in order to keep them safe from the drug lord, but ultimately cuts a deal to testify against her former boss in return for early release; she then leaves Chapman to suffer the consequences of her perjured testimony alone. In episode 6, “You Also Have a Pizza”, Chapman starts a prison newsletter and makes a deal with a reporter to investigate the financial goings-on at the prison.
