"I was so bummed out. But I handled it, so I'm in every [episode] in season three. It is so good," she explained.

According to a report in Entertainment weekly, Taystee will be devastated over Vee's death.
Danielle Brooks who plays Taystee Jefferson in the show said, "It's very emotional. It catches her off guard.

Changes in prison

In an interview with Vulture, Nick Sandow dished details about his character and the changes he will make to the women's prison.
Sandow said: "How do I think he's going to run it differently? It's a good question. I don't think Caputo really knows. I don't think he's the kind of guy that has any plan. I don't think he's the kind of guy that has absolutely anything up his sleeve. On the first and second day of his new job, he's just trying to keep his head above water. Do I think that he'll go about it without embezzling and these other things? Yeah, I think that he's got a sense of wanting to do the right thing."
