The sneaky folks over at Netflix, proving once again that they are benevolent yet all-powerful puppet-masters who can make the world shut down on command, decided to release the complete third season of “Orange is the New Black” a day early. As expected, everyone promptly freaked out / canceled all their plans / stayed up all night / severed themselves from all their loved ones and all their worldly posessions in the name of one singular cause: bingewatching.

First off, everyone freaked out:

And people were soooo happy:

But some people were also a bit defensive:

Many people bade farewell to the world:

Even Questlove:

Some people also multi-tasked:

[embedtweet id="609395531677347841"]
[embedtweet id="609364492108046336"]
[embedtweet id="609315599416569857"]

After the first few episodes, many feelings were felt:

[embedtweet id="609214697326297088"]
[embedtweet id="609214318966652928"]

New addition Ruby Rose was a particular hit:

[embedtweet id="609342949470552064"]


All in all, it was a long night for everyone:

[embedtweet id="609334229806280704"]
[embedtweet id="609347768797265920"]

So basically, the question is:
