Time has run out for Litchfield's ladies. 

The final season of Netflix's "Orange Is the New Black" wrapped up the storylines of characters we've followed for nearly seven years. Piper (Taylor Schilling), who initially led us into the world of the New York women's prison, is finally free; Tasha "Taystee" Jefferson (Danielle Brooks) is running the Poussey Washington Fund; and Maritza Ramos (Diane Guerrero) has been deported. 

Below, we recap where some of your Litchfield Penitentiary favorites ended up.

"Orange Is the New Black" season 7 is streaming in full on Netflix.
