16 Reasons We’ll Never Stop Shipping Nicky and Morello – Orange Is the New Black

Litchfield’s best couple was tragically wrenched apart in Season 3 when Luschek (Matt Peters) blamed Nicky for the heroin Caputo (Nick Sandow) found in his desk. Nicky was unceremoniously sent to max, while Morello looked on, helpless to stop it or even say a real goodbye.

If we had to make a wish list for Orange Is the New Black‘s fourth season, it would only include one thing: a reunion between Nicky Nichols (Natasha Lyonne) and Lorna Morello Muccio (Yael Stone)
