That's what starts the story and it's what ends it, with all the bumps along the way being highlighted. While they clearly love each other, to the point where they get prison married, they are also not very well matched. They constantly argue, they cheat on each other and seem to just have totally different personalities, which means they're likely better suited to other people. Throughout the show, Piper interacts with several women who she was better suited to in many ways, as well as other characters she doesn't get romantic with, but likely would have been better with.

How OITNB Finale Wrapped Up Alex and Piper's Relationship: Review
Skip navigation! Orange Is The New Black began with Piper Taylor Schilling starting her prison sentence at Litchfield, so it only seems right that it ends with her re-entering the world as a free woman. At the end of season 6, budget cuts led to a new system where the prisoners were ranked based on their behavior to help determine who could potentially be eligible for early release. This led Piper and Alex to have a prison wedding before her release to solidify their relationship, and then, Cal Michael Chernus came to pick Piper up from Litchfield. That totally ended up being true. Of course, since this is OITNB things get a little dark and twisty, but you'll have to see how Piper's life on the outside turns out for yourself when the final season drops on Netflix. After 14 years on air, Keeping Up with the Kardashians is finally coming to an end.

New workplaces, new food sources, new medicine--even an entirely new economic system. Two weeks into her month incarceration, Piper Kerman was seated in the mess hall of the federal correctional facility in Danbury, Connecticut, eating another desultory meal.
The year marked when Piper Kerman really turned her life around. If you skipped the famous memoir, you were likely pulled in by the popular Netflix adaption of the same name, loosely based on Kerman's experience. She may appear in the series finale , but the show's ending depicts a very different story than how Piper and her fellow inmates end up.
