While we countdown the days until the season three premiere of Orange Is the New Black, it's time to look back at one of the most adrenaline-pumping moments of season two.

"The most challenging scene to play was the fight between myself and Red," Lorraine Toussaint, who plays Vee, recalls in our first look video above. "It was hard to do. I mean it was physically difficult; it was emotionally difficult to keep regurgitating that level of animosity."

"It was long, hard, cold, wet and we hat to hit all of these notes -- and I think that we did." Kate Mulgrew -- aka Red -- explains. "But foremost among them was that mutual absurd laughter. The dissolving into that laughter of recognition of, 'There's no way that I'm going to kill her.'"

Orange is the New Black: Season Two hits Blu-ray, DVD & Digital HD this Tuesday, May 19.
