Orange Is the New Black season 3 is finally here—and it even came out early!—and whether you’re just starting your binge or finishing it up, we’re providing you with a place to discuss the show with your fellow fans.

EW will be recapping the entire season over the next several days; you’ll be able to find all the recaps here. We’ll be ranking all of the episodes, updating the list as our recaps go live. (Fair warning, spoilers lie ahead.)

So with that in mind, here’s my continually updating, completely subjective episode ranking. (Update: Now through episode 13.)

1. A Tittin’ and a Hairin’: Based off the strength of Pennsatucky’s flashback, “Hairin’ ” ranks supremely high for me this season in its offering of the darkest episode yet, but coupled with the double bathroom showdown and the return of Pornstache, and the episode ranks as not just one of the season’s most frightening, but also its best.
2. Trust No Bitch: Ask me a few weeks from now and my answer might be completely different, but the finale was such a fantastic culmination of not just the season but the series as a whole. From its extended lakeside ending to so many individually great moments, there’s something for everyone in the finale.
3.Where My Dreidel At: Whether it’s the hilarious rabbi meeting montage, Red’s frequent apologies for the terrible food, or Leanne’s surprising flashbacks, “Dreidel” is one of Orange’s best comedic and dramatic mixes this season.
