According to Morelli , it was writing scenes for Piper and Alex that gave her clarity on her own sexuality. I realized I was gay in fall , one of my first days on the set.

Holy shit, am I gay?

The new season got off to a bit of a slower start as we learned the fate of the prisoners after the extreme riot that occurred in season 5. We learned that majority of the characters had been moved up to the Litchfield Maximum Security prison and many had their prison sentences extended for their roles in the riot. It was difficult to watch the characters being forced to rat each other out with threats from the investigators and in many cases loyalties that have been built up over the years were shattered, after all, it is prison and you simply must put yourself first.
The front and center storyline in season six is the fate of fan favorite character Taystee, played by the amazing Danielle Brooks, who is facing major charges for her role in the riot. We also see some surprising people turn their back on Taystee over the course of the season, helping to what will ultimately seal her fate one way or another.

I have seen four A stamps on Natural finished bodies, and a trans-red with an A stamp. I’ve seen a C on a Monaco Yellow and a Sunburst. I have also seen a D, along with an A on a Sunburst body. This is just a theory, but if only A’s were put on Natural finished guitars as an example, it could help determine if a guitar is refinished.

The last five digits are basically random. An important thing to look for are the matching serial number stickers in the neck pocket and on the pickguard. All bodies are Ash, and usually a heavy piece.
Most Natural and Sunburts finished guitars seem to be three-piece bodies, painted ones may be more.
