Wait, of all the months they can choose to shoot this show, they do it over Thanksgiving? What a crappy time to leave your family. I really need them to get straight to Robert’s fake constipation. I really want him back in GenPop.
Over in D Pod the guys seem quite pleased with their Thanksgiving dinner. It actually looks pretty decent. Isaiah is missing his grandmother and her cooking. He is so cute. I hope his new lunatic friend doesn’t shank him in his sleep. His friend Treshawn is now stealing Kool-Aid from Isaiah’s bunky. Isaiah was his lookout. This is not good. Treshawn continues to nudge Isaiah farther down the path of trouble. The guys are all smoking e-cigarette filters rolled in a coffee soaked coffee filter. Getting caught will give him 30 days in segregation. When the show ends it appears that Isaiah smoked the makeshift “crack stick. ”
An inmate bumped a camera with his head (it looked deliberate) and was grabbed and taken solitary. This leaves an open bed in the pod in an actual room. The residents invite Zac to move in and he does.
Zac sleeps so soundly in his new room he sleeps through breakfast. One of his new bunkys is also a fellow Marine named Brian. Someone eats his tray and Brian splits his tray with him. I think Brian is probably the one who took his tray.
We have a new inmate in F-Pod named Amber. Somehow she has been acting like the Pod Boss. I find that very odd. She has written Thanksgiving cards for each of the tables. Maryum thinks the cards are nice. I think Amber is a nutjob and I haven’t even heard her speak yet.
Barbra is back in sorority sleep over mode. She is professing her undying love for all the inmates. Tami finally remembers that she is there to do a job and starts actually doing it.
Cigarettes or something is being smuggled into the pod. When the food comes Amber announces that she is expecting something for her to be on one of the trays. They better give it to her. Does she not see the cameras? When the producers come in later, Tami gives them the heads up that the contrabrand is coming in on the food trays. This is a lot of drama over a cigarette.
Maryum seems to think she is at an arts and crafts party. She draws pictures for the other inmates. She draws some sort of heart picture for a girl named Amy. Inside the heart she drew a bunch of little pictures. She tried to make an American flag but she messed it up. There was also a squiggly line that looks like a foot. Barbra had a fit and thinks it is a picture of someone stopping on the flag, and her husband is in the military. She’s OFFENDED, y’all. Ugh. Barbra gets Tami and Amy involved and works everyone up. Because Barbra is offended by some lady’s crappy drawing. We have an entire generation of perpetually offended people. Amy looks at Barbra like she is an idiot and says she is sure Maryum didn’t mean it that way. So Barbra charges off to whine about her feelings about the drawing on the phone with her husband. He tells her basically that one of the rights he fights for is freedom of speech and she needs to let it go. Barbra has never liked Maryum. I don’t get it. All Maryum does is tutor girls and draw pictures all day. What is so offensive about her? When Barbra called her husband she started with, “remember that girl I told you was so rude?” Seriously?
There is no way this idiot is going to go back into general population. He is acting like he is dying rather than simply overdosing on junk food. Wait! Wait! When he found out that he would not be allowed back if he went to the hospital, his need for more camera time seems to have healed him from his near fatal bout of constipation. YAY!
Well, that was a false alarm. Later in the day, he is back to dying in his bunk over constipation. He taps out and goes to the hospital. The producers seem to genuinely believe he is in pain. The sheriff doesn’t buy it.
Next Week: At his debriefing, Robert is accused of faking it. Isaiah falls deeper into dealings with the wrong crowd. And there is a lot of drama in F-Pod and Tami gets all worked up again. It’s possible Tami and Maryum will come to blows! And Zac’s new room gets raided for prison hooch.
