So Vee May Be Returning To “Orange Is The New Black”
OITNB spoiler alert ahead.
When season two of “Orange Is The New Black” concluded, fans were under the impression that Litchfield Correctional Facility’s resident hell raiser, Vee, was gone for good. As you may recall, Miss Rosa mowed Vee down while fleeing the correctional facility in a getaway van. However, according to TMZ, that may not have been the end of the road for Vee.
Production sources claim that Lorraine Toussaint, the actress who brought Vee to life, will be reporting to the set of the popular Netflix series in New York for filming today. The extent of Vee’s presence in seasons 3 and/or 4 are unknown, as it seems unlikely that she would have survived such an impactful hit. However, stranger things have happened and up to this point, Vee has really been able to bounce back from any and everything. Our guess is that she may just be appearing in flashback scenes though.
Netflix reps told BuzzFeed that Vee “is not going to be in season 3,” but they said nothing about season 4, which is also being filmed. Toussaint also wouldn’t confirm whether or not Vee actually died.
“We’re not sure if Vee is dead,” the actress said last June.“She could be dead, she could not be dead. That’s an open-ended question still. Isn’t that a scary proposition? She might need to be dead. I don’t know.”
Toussaint joined the cast of OITNB during season two.
“In my 50s, I’m aware of a certain level of never say never,” Tossaint said of her role in the series last spring. “I would never have said this when I was younger, but there are things worth dying for. And there are probably things worth killing for. And may we, may I, may all of us, never come face-to-face with those kinds of choices. But within my being, I am aware of my capacity for extraordinary good and violence and grace and all of it. For these women, it’s one choice, it’s one desperate choice, one losing control choice. We’re once choice away from these women. So the thing I’m really clear about and why I wanna honor these women is that they’re not the ‘thems’ of this world, they’re the ‘us’ of this world.”
Though Tossaint did an extraordinary job last season, I can’t say that I’d be happy to see her back at Litchfield Correctional Facility wreaking havoc.
