Biography Edit

Before Piscatella's employment Edit

Wes was an inmate in a men's maximum security prison when Desi Piscatella began working as a guard. He helped Piscatella with an answer to his crossword puzzle, and the two eventually fell for each other. They dated secretly for an unknown amount of time, Wes even got Piscatella's initials "DP" tattooed on his wrist, although he told the tattooer it stood for "double penetration".

Wes and Desi were getting too comfortable though, and other inmates began to get suspicious. One day, when Piscatella came to work ready to show Wes his new tattoo - "WD" - on his wrist to match Wes's, he found his boyfriend on the ground, having been beaten and raped by a group of inmates led by Miguel Rosado, an inmate who had seen Wes and Desi being intimate. Afterwards, Piscatella killed Rosado by chaining him to a shower and burning him with hot water, resulting in his transfer to Litchfield. It is unknown whether Driscoll survived, although the fact that Piscatella has his prison ID suggests that he did not. ("The Reverse Midas Touch")

Trivia Edit

  • In a deleted scene from "The Reverse Midas Touch", Piscatella realises that Driscoll faked his tattoo when it wipes right off after Driscoll is attacked. This explains his distrust of prisoners and their motives. It is unknown why the scene was deleted. [1]
