Morello’s Backstory On “Orange Is The New Black” Will Break Your Heart

Everyone’s favorite red-lipped inmate has an insane past. Literally. (SPOILERS for Season 2!)

1. Lorna Morello (Yael Stone) is the sweetest inmate at Litchfield. She helps new inmates get settled when they first arrive and is always chipper.

2. And she is so trusted that she drives the inmates when they have appointments outside the jail.

Like Miss Rosa, whom she drives to the hospital for her chemotherapy appointment.

3. In a flashback, Morello is in her bedroom admiring her bulletin board, which has a picture of her perfect guy*, torn from a catalogue.

*He looks somewhat like her fiancé Christopher, no?

4. She’s also a big spender.*

*By spender, we mean she regularly commits mail fraud, ordering expensive stuff and then telling the company she never received the merchandise so they will credit her card.

5. But when she’s at the mailbox picking up another set of packages, she meets Christopher.

Wait, doesn’t he sort of look like the picture of sweater guy in her bedroom? He too is wearing a slim sweater! This seems like an ideal meet-cute between the two of them, dropped packages and all.

6. In the present day, a sad Morello leaves her post at the hospital and drives to Albany to Christopher’s house.

Starting to sound a little crazier…

7. And when she can’t get in, she smashes the back window and breaks in.

8. And sees a picture of Christopher and his fiancée and copies of their wedding invitation.

She steals a copy of the invitation. Not sure what she’s going to do with that.

9. Then she goes upstairs and tries on this stranger’s veil.

Oh no.

10. And in another flashback, she tells her sister that Christopher is taking her on vacation (in her Dolce & Gabbana dress).

11. Back at the house, noticing the tub and the time, Morello decides to take a bath while still wearing the wedding veil. But she gets a little too relaxed.

And she wakes up to Christopher yelling if anyone is home.

12. So in the final flashback, you find out Morello and Christopher have gone on one date and she has stalked him ever since.

She followed him, even after he changed his number and address. She also jeopardized his life and that of his fiancée. Though she’s appearing in court because Christopher has applied for a restraining order against her, Morello doesn’t understand and just thinks Christopher is being “dramatic.” It is unclear if her credit card fraud is known.

13. Back in the present, Morello escapes out the window in Christopher’s fiancée’s robe, but not before stealing a teddy bear off their bed.

14. She is able to get back to the hospital, slip into her clothes, and toss the robe out the window before Officer Fischer gets back to the car with Rosa.

15. Morello! We knew you did something illegal, but this is nuts!
