I think an hour of Rocky Horror Picture Show tonight was enough. I just couldn’t take Laverne as Frank N. Furter. Plus it’s time for death watch on 60 Days In. I swear this season is fraught with so much more danger than last season. Tonight, I believe the sewer will finally be fixed and everyone will get back to the pods.
Wow. It has been 30 hours since the sewer line was crushed and they are just starting to work on the line. Meanwhile, the inmates are restless and the guards are losing it. They are so concerned about a riot that they do not even want to allow them to stand up. I would think in 30 hours they could have got some bottled water in there. It would seem wise to give them a few things to keep the occupied. Books, cards, porn, whatever. Something.
Even Quentin is starting to unravel a bit.
F-Pod has been stuck in A-Pod and no one is happy about that. Then, someone starts a rumor that there are lice in the pod. I am itching just typing that. I probably still have a bottle of lice shampoo somewhere in my bathroom closet from teaching at an elementary school. If I even heard about a kid with lice I’d come home and use that nasty stuff. I just can’t. Can we not talk about this anymore?
Something has bitten Ashleigh or caused a rash on the back of her legs. A really nice guard takes a look at it and says she will tell medical but that medical probably won’t have time to see her. Do they not have cortisone cream on commissary? Or Benadryl cream? What if it is something contagious?
It’s over 31 hours since this nightmare began and it still hasn’t occurred to anyone to go down to the WalMart and get a few flats of bottled water. Hell, if they asked nicely, WalMart would even donate them and probably through in some snacks. Instead, one of the female guards loses her damn mind and goes to get the pepper gun and threatens to shoot everyone up with it. See, guard lady, you’re gonna need a mask for your damn self if you want to go that route. What you are doing now is called pissing everyone off even more. It’s pretty much the opposite of what you should be doing.
They pull Dion out to film, and probably give him some damn water, and he cries. This one ain’t gonna make it the next two weeks, y’all.
After 36 hours, the sewer line has been fixed. Everyone can go back to their pod. Home sweet home. Sheri goes right back to work. She can tell that drugs are coming and she is watching to see how they arrive.
Zac is still being a dick on the phone. Ashleigh’s bite or whatever it is on the back of her leg is becoming worse and feeling hot. It seems to be spreading. She feels feverish and sick. The producers are concerned and pull her for an interview. Ashleigh doesn’t want to leave. She wants to finish her commitment that she made. She opts not to take the medical care that would end her time there.
Monalisa has a breakdown after talking to one of the inmates about how to best care for her daughter when her time is up. She will have served ten years in prison and will be a grown woman and a totally different person. Sherri talks about how families need counseling on how to help re-acclimate inmates back into the family and society.
Three new girls come into the pod. But only one of them has everyone’s attention. Her name is Damaris and she is super quiet. Some of the girls go up to her room to find her intake papers. It sounds like a very violent assault on a minor. Oh God. It was a six month old baby. She might have killed it. Ashleigh might kill her. This is next week’s drama.
I wonder if they did a drug sweep with the dogs while everyone was out of there? There was pot everywhere right before they evacuated.
Ryan won’t eat the jail food. He only eats peanut butter. So he has started selling his trays. This of course has Captain Maples panties in a bunch again. Maples worries about all the wrong shit.
Quintin got talk to his daughter on the phone and he was literally doing the happy dance the whole time he was on the phone. So cute.
Poor Dion over in D-Pod all alone. Well, not all alone, he has 59 other dudes in there with him. One of those dudes has started sleeping in the day room bathroom. Now y’all know Dion does not play when it comes to using the bathroom. Dion goes in to drops some kids in the pool and doesn’t flush. Then he starts trash talking in the day room. Where is Captain Maples to complain about this?
Well, it’s the final stretch and it looks like all six will survive. Maybe.
