Oh, be still my heart. “Orange is the New Black”creator Jenji Kohan has told Us Weekly that Alex Vause will be back for “most” of season 2. Now, I know the massive heart attack every lesbian, some straight women and an assortment of gay and straight men felt when news dropped last summer that Laura Prepon was leaving and/or severely cutting back on her time at Litchfield. It was a terrible, terrible dark time for us all.
Kohan told the magazine:
“Yes, yes, she is coming back. Not the whole season, but...you'll see her for most of it.”So, that means more than the four episodes that have been previously reported. If we do a little basic math – 13 episodes a season, half of 13 is 6.5 – that would mean she would have to be in at least 7 episodes to constitute “most.” Yes, Jenji, I am fucking counting.
So if this math and “most” holds true, let us rejoice at the re-Alex Vause-ification of our hearts. Because when we said don’t you fucking leave us, Alex Vause, we fucking meant it.
