None other than the beloved Poussey Washington — played by Samira Wiley — turned up in flashback scene during the final season.
"OH MY GODDD POUSSEY MY SWEET BABYGIRL I MISSED UR PRETTY LITTLE FACE IM SO HEARTBROKEN IM IN TEARSS LOOK AT HER," one fan tweeted after seeing the scene.
"Poussey was a f—ing Woman and seeing her just a couple minutes broke my heart even more than when we saw her die," another watcher wrote.
I personally feel that this show single-handedly changed television, and we should all be eternally grateful.

"I was 100% not ready to see Poussey show up on my screen in OITNB ep. 12," someone else commented.
"I literally got goosebumps and started bawling my eyes out, when Poussey showed up on the screen," one other user said.
This moment in the last season of #OITNB made me so happy yet so heartbroken.

"I need all of Maritza and Flaca’s help today after finishing [Orange Is the New Black]! Should’ve been a “Don’t watch after applying mascara” warning! Thanks to the cast for the laughs and tears, but most of all for giving voice to so many real women’s issues. Donating to the Poussey fund now!
