By now most of you know that Samira Wiley’s Orange Is The New Black character Poussey Washington died in the penultimate episode of season four. Wiley, and her character, were fan favorites, and the friendship between Poussey and Danielle Brooks’ character Taystee was a highlight of the show.

Yesterday, Brooks shared a photo of Taystee and Poussey’s last moment together that will make your eyes immediately fill with tears. “Our last moment together from season 4! Love this one to the moon and back! @oitnb #poussey #taystee #taysteetuesday,” Brooks tweeted.
