Catch Up On 'OITNB' With Emojis Because Why Not?

Are you missing Piper, Crazy Eyes, Taystee, Pennsatucky, and the rest of the ladies from Orange is the New Black's Litchfield Penitentiary? The good news is that the hit Netflix show will be back on June 12 with new episodes ready for an epic Orange is the New Black Season 3 watch-a-thon. Until then, refresh your memory about all of last season's happenings with an Orange Is The New Black Season 2 recap in emoji. It was 13 episodes filled with so many emotions that it can only be expressed in emoji form.

Sure, Piper Chapman (played by Taylor Schilling) was still there and dealing with her own marital and Alex drama, but the focus of the second season shifted to the rest of the inmates, including flashbacks of their lives pre-Litchfield. Old faces returned — the evil Pornstache, a.k.a. Mendez — but there were also some new faces who entered the prison and stirred up trouble. Vee (Lorraine Toussaint) did just that by manipulating fellow inmates and leading a charge against Red's (Kate Mulgrew) posse. The two women had a bitter rivalry until a very satisfying ending.

Well, what happened? You can see — and interpret — for yourself below in a Season 2 recap purely in emojis. It's the wave of the future.

Got that? Now, you're all set for Season 3. And it can't get here fast enough.

Season 2 of Orange is the New Black is available on DVD and Blu-ray on May 19.
