Stella Carlin, Orange is the New Black
Stella Carlin (Ruby Rose)
Stella was introduced halfway through Season 3 when she met Piper in the prison workshop. The two became close, and Stella got involved in Piper’s illegal buisness, which played a big part in the growing bond. Piper broke up with her girlfriend, Alex, and around the same time Piper and Stella started getting involved both romantically and sexually.
When Stella was about to be released she stole all of Piper’s money to use on the outside. In retailiation Piper framed her and got her sent to a maximum security prison. Stella returned for one episode in Season 4 where she was seen having a conversation with Nicky. Stella and Nicky had been having sex and Stella had turned to drugs, which caused Nicky to tell Stella to stay away.
