One of the more interesting highlights of Season 3 of the American comedy-drama TV series “Orange is the New Black” on Netflix is the love triangle that took place between Piper Chapman, played by Taylor Schilling, Alex Vause, played by Laura Prepon, and Stella Carlin, played by upstart but widely-acclaimed Ruby Rose.
Piper and Alex used to be a couple but they had a falling out and that’s when Stella came into the picture, getting close and chummy with Piper in the process, much to the chagrin of Alex.
But the huge cliffhanger during the Season 3 finale saw Alex getting trapped into a corner by a security guard who turned out to be an assassin. The hit was apparently arranged by Kubra, played by Eyas Younis.
However, most of the fans and viewers of “Orange is the New Black” are now aware that Alex would be back for Season 4 and that she would be able to survive the ordeal. It was actually Laura Prepon herself who quashed speculations that her character is going to die when she posted on social media a few months ago a selfie of herself and her Litchfield Penitentiary ID.
When word came around that Laura Prepon is still involved in “Orange is the New Black” and filming her parts, fans knew that Alex would still be around in Season 4.
She was even part of the Holiday special video teaser of Season 4 of “Orange is the New Black” that Netflix released late last year.
Stella Carlin, on the other hand, was sent to maximum security in the penultimate episode of Season 3 of “Orange is the New Black.”
Critics believe that fans and viewers have not seen the last of the love triangle of Piper, Alex, and Stella because it still has good legs to stand on, notes Melty.
Friends for the rest of her life
In a recent interview, Ruby Rose said that she thought that when she was taken in to be a cast member of “Orange is the New Black” beginning with the third season, her character would be tasked to kill Alex.
Although Stella Carlin is unbelievably attractive, but she knows how to fight and also knows how to win dirty.
As the actors only receive the script for a particular episode one week before filming, she shared that she really thought that her character had been sent to Litchfield Penitentiary to kill off Alex.
She said like most of the cast and crew, she never knew what’s going to happen with her character on the TV series. So they would just sit and come up with conspiracy theories about what would be happening and at one point, they were all convinced that Stella was in the prison to kill Laura Prepon’s character.
The Australian actress also said that last year was the greatest year of her life because of “Orange is the New Black,” which also gave her friends that she will have with her for the rest of her life.
She said that while the ladies appear to be the bitchiest of bitches in front of the camera, they are all best of buddies behind it. She said that all of the women in the show support each other. Rose said that is the biggest difference between “Orange is the New Black” and some other shows that are out there.
A different Taystee
Season 4 of “Orange is the New Black” shall also see a different Taystee, the character played by Danielle Brooks, as the inmate will grow and take over much responsibility for the prison block she is in, details MNR Daily.
Brooks explained that Season 3 left off with Taystee being the mom, taking over the role that Vee was into. The upcoming season will see how she deals with the situations.
