Orange Is the New Black's second season was all about family. At the center of this were two very different women struggling to create and maintain their prison support systems.

After becoming a fan favorite in Season 1, Danielle Brooks was upped to series regular on Orange Is the New Black and finally given her own flashback episode this year. The heartbreaking first glimpse at Taystee's (nee Tasha Jefferson) past set the entire second season in motion and added some depth to Litchfield's class clown.
Brooks spoke to TVGuide.com about Taystee's history with Vee (Lorraine Toussaint), her character's hopes for the future and the struggles of being mean to Samira Wiley (Poussey).
