Tamara Tattles headquarters is experiencing some technical issues with the the cable and Internet and the DVR did not pick up this episode so I’m recapping it from On Demand which does not like to pause. This recap will likely be shorter than usual. The cable guy will be here Sunday afternoon. I guess I will have to
clear a path clean this house. As it turns out, A & E lets you fast forward and back up, so it was easier than expected.
Dion comes in for booking. He’s very attractive. He may have similar issues to Ashleigh. He seems the least nervous of everyone on the way in, in fact, he is all smiles. LOL! When he is in intake there is a crazy dude singing the national anthem. When he is done, I say to my TV, “Play Ball!” and so do the other guys in intake. I’d be perfect for jail. Or not. We are seeing a lot more hardcore behavior and takedowns than we did in season one.
Chris, Brian and Dion all go to the classification pod at the same time. They all get in the same cell with one actual criminal. But none of the guys know the other two are also in the program.
Chris is already suffering. He can’t sleep. His stomach s in knots. He looks scared. He throws up. Dion assumes that Chris is detoxing off heroin. He wants nothing to do with him. Chris vomits for eight straight hours. He uses the white towel signal that he is done.
Sheri has made a moral enemy out of Mackenzie and is nervous. Monalisa is not fond of the accommodations. Ashleigh has a crew of girls who want to be her girlfriend.
Ashleigh calls Zac for support, but she doesn’t get an answer. Monalisa wants a fatter mat to sleep on. The CO messes with her a bit, but he brings her a better mat.
Sheri and Ashleigh bond because both of them are sort of freaked out and on the outside. Ashleigh is big on working out. Sheri decides to start working out with Ashleigh. Sheri invites Ashleigh to move into her cell. This gets Ashleigh away from her overzealous admirers.
Monalisa gets rec time in the gym. Sheri is in there too with Mackenzie. Mackenzie smarts off to a guard, allegedly and get thrown out of F Pod. We didn’t hear her say anything. This may be a save by production. But I guess they really could not do that since no one is supposed to know what is going on. Perhaps it is just a fortunate turn of events for Sheri. Unless the old pod boss, who liked Sheri had something to do with it. Could she do that from another pod? Mackenie goes to segregation. Those metal beds look like they could really hurt someone.
Ryan has moved into an upstairs cell with his new friend Garza. Ryan is still talking way too much about his “forgery” abilities. Ryan says he thinks his bunkmates are the most stable in the Pod. He is in there with Treshawn who beat up someone in the first season. Garza and Treshawn get into it over the value of a pair of shoes. Treshawn calls Garza a bitch. Garza goes to beat the fuck out of him. That’s another issue with Ryan, he seems to really like the word ‘bitch’. It’s only a matter of time before it slips out of his mouth at the wrong time.
Garza broke his hand in the fight. His knuckle was out-of-place. Ryan reset it for him. This earns him respect from his cellmates. But the sheriff implies that this is a bad idea. If you do a prisoner a favor, it’s only a matter of time before they ask for another. What a buzzkill he is just when I thought Ryan might live through this after all.
I almost forgot that Quintin is over in C Pod all by himself. His PIN isn’t working so he can’t make phone calls. He asks for CO to help him out. He didn’t seem to helpful. Quentin finally gets his PIN. He has the biggest smile on his face after calling his daughter C Pod looks like much easier time than D Pod. Quintin is playing dominos with the guys and starting to fit in on day three.
Next week: Dion goes to C Pod. Brian goes to D Pod and seems to be tapping out. He was being brutally sexually harassed and tells the producers that he can’t do this because he has kids. I don’t know if that means he can’t die in prison, or he can’t have his kids see the sexual harassment.
