“Like a Case of Pop”: The Commodification of Women’s Bodies in 310: “A Tittin’ and a Hairin'”

Young Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett walks into the living room, clutching her blood-stained underwear confused by her body. She’s met with annoyance. She’s too young to be bleeding and growing and becoming a woman. After imparting some ambiguous wisdom as to what this “a tittin’ and a hairin'” means, the only thing that Tiffany takes away from this conversation is that she will be rewarded when she proves her  womanhood: in short, when she lets a boy “do his business” with her body. What’s worse is what her mother says:

“Now you’re like a case of pop. You’ve got value.” – Pennsatucky’s mom

Netflix JUST announced that season 4 will be released on Friday, June 17, 2016. And, from Nicky’s and Alex’s short cameos, it appears as though they will both be returning!

SEASON 4 SNEAK PEAK: 7 New Characters!

While Orange producers have kept season 4 details pretty much under wraps, their IMDb page gives away more than they anticipate. After some careful investigation, I have unearthered who I believe to be Litchfield’s freshest faces. Meet them below!

Quincy Chad


Quincy Chad is best known for his roles on The Colors of Love (2012), Are We There Yet? Chloe and Theo (2015), and A Rising Tide (2015). He is set to star in two episodes this season as Leon McDonald.




Christina Brucato


Christina Brucato is known for her roles in The Intern (2015), Vivienne Again (2012), and Made for Each Other (2009). She is listed as portraying a Young Lolly, which means that Lolly isn’t going anywhere. In fact, she’s being drawn further into the spotlight!




Brad William Henke


You might recognize Brad William Henke from Fury (2014), Pacific Rim (2013), or even from his minor role on Dexter as Toni Tucci. He is set to play Desi Piscatella in all 13 episodes of season 4, so he seems to be a key player. The tariler released on February 29 shows Henke as one of the lead Maximum Security guards. This fact confirms that this season will indeed have to do with overcrowding and security issues in prison.



Jennifer Brito


Jennifer Brito is known for her roles in Friends with Benefits (2011), Sorry Charlie! (2015), and Play Your Position (2014). She will be portraying A-Rod in three episodes this season.



Kelly Karbacz


You may recognize Kelly Karbacz from Get Smart (2008) or Regular Joe (2003), but you will soon come to know her as Kasey Sankey as she will appear in a whopping ten episodes this season.





Mike Houston


Mike Houston is best known for his roles in Inside Llewyn Davis (2013), The Drop (2014), and Deliver Us from Evil (2014). He will portray C.O. Dixon in 9 episodes this season.






Shannon Esper



Last but not least, Shannon Esper, known for her contributions to Not Fade Away (2012), Mutual Friends (2013), and Open Five (2010) will portray Alana Dwight in the first two episodes of the series.
