When did you find out that Piper was getting out of Litchfield?

I believe it was in the same conversation with Jenji about the wedding, halfway through the season, and I wasn’t surprised. She said we’re getting married because Piper is getting out and it’s something that you [Alex] know that she wants. But you kind of know these things are coming. You hear different things and when I’m directing, I know what I have to set up and what’s to come. I knew that Piper was going to get out at some point, and I assumed it was going to be the last episode.

How do you feel about her release in terms of where it can move the show? And do you think it pushes the endgame forward?

Well, the endgame is there. As of now, season seven is our last season. So, the endgame is clear. But the reason that it bums me out, obviously, is because I love working with Taylor. She and I love working together. We’ve been working together for six, seven years now and she’s a wonderful scene partner. We were just together the other day and she was saying, “This sucks. I’m out of prison. When am I going to do scenes with you!” (Laughs.)

Through the glass, in visitation?

Seriously! So, that’s a bummer. That’s obviously the main bummer, because I’ll miss her. But our writers are great, so they will always come up with something. These characters are so well-crafted, especially now. When you get to do a show for this long, you can really craft characters that are full, multidimensional people. And at this point, you’ve been with these women for six seasons, so our writers can just have so much fun playing with all these storylines.

For Schilling, whose character ended the season with mixed feelings about her newfound freedom, the one thing she seems confident about is how Piper feels about Alex.

“I think that’s the love of her life,” Schilling tells THR. “I’m not quite sure what that means all the time, but I think there comes a point in life to either commit to partnership or to not. Either one is totally valid, but it seems to me that Piper decided to commit to a life lived in tandem with Alex and to just work through the stuff with another human. So, I’d love to see her continue that on in perpetuity, to stick with it.”

“It feels like we’ve already come to a place where gay marriage is no longer a political statement,” says Schilling. “Where it’s a fact of life for many people and that there are now much more vulnerable populations and other members of the LGBTQ community, like the transgender community, that need to be made visible and have their voices amplified. So while, on some level it’s always the case, the beauty of it is that, to me, it seemed less like a political statement and more of just a continuation of the storyline — which is probably in and of itself the biggest political statement that can be made.”

She adds, “And that’s to the credit of many, many, many people who have been tireless advocates. It’s to the credit to where things have changed since the show started.”
