Netflix Resurrected This Telenovela Villain Once Again To Give OITNB Some Life And It’s Genius
Netflix is dropping season 5 of “Orange Is The New Black” on June 9 and they are getting everybody excited. In the latest teaser to hit the Internet, Netflix LATAM teamed up with one of the most notorious telenovela villains in history…again. That’s right, Soraya Montenegro ended up at Litchfield Penitentiary and BFFs Marisol “Flaca” Gonzalez and Maritza Ramos could not handle their excitement. This is the second time the infamous novela villain has been resurrected to bring some life to the Netflix original series.

The iconic telenovela villain is back to the franchise much to Flaca’s surprise who first sees her setting up shop in her new bunk next to her. When Flaca realizes that it is in fact Soraya, she (understandably) starts to fangirl and grabs her partner-in-crime Maritza so they can bask in the icons glory together. Once Flaca and Maritza get their freak out out of the way, they then beg for a reenactment of the “Maldita Lisiada” scene that made Soraya the international icon she is today.
Jailhouse besties Flaca and Maritza take their moment with the most famous of telenovela villains to recreate her most iconic scene.
However, Soraya isn’t happy with how they act it out so she gives them a little tip on how to make it believable.
Flaca is all of us when she clearly loses her mind at the fact that she is being choked out by Soraya. Maritza is just as star struck as she watches a legend at work. The promo continues to show Soraya crying in Spanish because memes are life, tbh.
Fans are over the moon with Netflix’s cultural crossover.

For those days when words won’t cut it, a Soraya gif will always do the trick.
Not to mention that being extra will only benefit Netflix.
