But in Orange Is the New Black Season 2, we get to see another side of Poussey: a darker, more vulnerable side, including a heartbreaking glimpse into her past.

Basically, if you loved her in Season 1, there are so many more ways she steals your heart in Season 2.

1. Like when she so perfectly defined love and made us all melt into a giant puddle.

2. And when we got to see a younger Poussey rock a mohawk and speak German in a flashback to when she was living on an army base in Germany with her family.

3. And when she stood up to her German girlfriend's father and stayed true to who she is.

5. When she kept it real during Healy's "Safe Place" group therapy and it broke all our hearts to see an always cheerful Poussey this sad.
