In a set of leaked screen shots from Orange’s upcoming fourth season, Taylor Schilling (Piper Chapman) and Laura Prepon (Alex Vause) are pictured in what appear to be prison-chique wedding veils. The season three finale left Alex’s fate up in the air with one of Kubra Balik’s men confronting her, teasing the idea that she’d be killed; however, a picture posted to Prepon’s Instagram in mid-August (pictured below) clued fans into her return to the series.
Of course this does not mean that Alex is alive. She could be appearing in dream sequences or even pre-climactic flashbacks. However, her presence on several panels and at cast parties suggests that Prepon isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
