Laura Prepon told the Today that her character Alex Vause will appear in “every episode” in season three. Piper, played by Taylor Schilling , is Alex’s lover, and Schilling told Metro Weekly, “The thing that is so interesting about Alex and Piper is that they totally love each other, but they also look out for themselves. It is this constant power struggle between the two of them. And then at the end of season tow, Piper does a major power play. And you wonder, is it because she totally loves this girl, or is it because she’s just getting her back.”
“Orange is the New Black” is a drama comedy about a women’s prison, and is based on the 2010 memoir by Piper Kerman who was sentenced to 15 months in prison for transporting drug money for her lesbian lover.
