    EXCLUSIVE: For Orange Is The New Black fans, here’s a skit where Taystee and Poussey meet in Tucker’s from Black Mirror’s "San Junipero" episode (this post contains OITNB spoilers).

    So you know that Black Mirror episode set in the '80s? Well, here it is with Poussey (Samira Wiley) and Taystee (Danielle Brooks) from Orange Is The New Black.

    Poussey, one of the show's most loved characters, died towards the end of the last season. So this special, where they are reunited, creates a lot of feelings.

    In this exclusive clip, we see Taystee asleep whilst we hear Belinda Carlisle's "Heaven Is A Place On Earth."

    🎵 "Ooooh baby, do you know what that's worth!" 🎵

    She's transported to Tucker's, the bar from the Black Mirror "San Junipero" episode.

    And look who it is.

    It's Poussey!!!!!!!!!!

    Poussey and Taystee then get right down to business.

    So, just in case you haven't seen that episode of Black Mirror, Poussey now lives for eternity in the simulated world of San Junipero, originally created by Charlie Brooker. Oh, and she now lives in the '80s.

    FYI: She's also wearing the exact same jacket as Gugu Mbatha-Raw wore in that very episode.

    In the episode, Kelly (Mbatha-Raw) was a big fan of Jack and coke.

    Turns out Poussey is a big fan of them too.

    Then they proceed to dance with each other.

    And your heart starts to rise and flutter just that little bit.

    Before it all comes crashing down again.

    So either... Taystee can only visit Poussey for a short period every week because people who are alive cannot visit San Junipero for more than a few hours a week.

    Or she's asleep and this is totally a dream.

    We then see Taystee wake up.

    "Man the '80s were stupid."


    Orange is the New Black season five will debut on Netflix on June 9 worldwide.
