Orange Is The New Black Season 3 Spoilers: Pornstashe Won’t Be Back, But His Mom Is Coming
There's another new face on Orange is the New Black and this one may mean trouble for the girls. Even though Pornstashe (Pablo Schreiber) won't be returning, another member of his family is joining the cast.
Actress Mary Steenburgen is coming onboard to play Pornstashe's mother on the hit Netflix show, reports Hollywood Reporter. Her inclusion means that life is likely to get a lot more complex for Daya (Dashcha Polanco) and her unborn child.
Last season, the girls framed Pornstashe for rape and set him up as the father of the Daya's child. Because having any sort of intimate relationships with the prisoners is totally forbidden when you're a guard, he was fired from his job. Ultimately he deserved it though, he was terrible.
Steenburgen's new character will likely be heavily involved in Daya's storyline. As far as anyone officially knows, Pornstashe is the baby's father and although he will not be seen on the show, it's likely that his mother wants some sort of relationship with the child she believes is her grandchild.
If this is the case, it will be a major issue for Daya, who has one of the main storylines this upcoming season. When Pornstashe was originally charged it seemed like their problems were solved for the most part. But the coming of his mother means that they'll have to keep up the charade or somehow set it up to clear Pornstashe's name as the father, without revealing Bennet (Matt McGorry).
Orange is the New Black is returning to Netflix this summer.
