Dion, Chris and Brian are still in classification. Dion thinks Chris is a heroin addict who is detoxing because he has been throwing up for eight hours straight. Chris is already using the white towel distress signal before he is even sent to a pod. Production pulls him out.
Chris is sick and crying. The producers check with Sheriff Noel who offers him a medical furlough. Because he is not in a pod yet I think he is being allowed to go to a hotel and rest until he is feeling better. So that is the plan. After the first night he asks to meet with the program’s psychologist due to panic attacks. He’s not looking like he will make it. Yep, the next day he taps out. He seems very depressed and disappointed in himself.
Brian gives the distress signal after Chris leaves. We are not off to a good start. We can have two people quit before they even get assigned a cell. Brian I guess noticed that Chris left after wandering around with a white towel, and the guys say they know he is a plant. So he wants to quit. Hell, we know he doesn’t but he is about to get majorly sexually harassed when he gets a pod, so it he wants to quit now. He will be screaming for hot coffee in the actual pod. Brian changes his mind. For now. Tomorrow he goes to D pod.
Last week, I thought that Ryan fixing Garza’s hand was a good move. But Sheriff Noel thinks this puts Ryan in a bad spot where more favors will be expected. I guess the sheriff was right because now Ryan has to cheek some Tylenol for Garza in the pill line. If he gets caught he gets 30 days in the hole. Ryan chickens out at the pill station and doesn’t ask for anything. This pisses of Garza.
They put Brian in D pod. Why? They should have put Quentin in there, Brian is too fragile for D pod. Maybe they think Chris is coming back so he will need to go to C Pod? They start with Brian from the second he walks in. He doesn’t even have his bed unrolled yet. They end up sexually harassing him hard. A nekkid dude puts a mat down right next to him. He will not make it through the night without tapping out.
Dion gets moved into C Pod. Which is good because it seems a lot less violent. For now. He is outnumbered by white people and a little nervous about that. He jumps on a top bunk near a black guy and tries to just go to sleep.
My boy Dion sure has a lot of stereotypes. First Chris is a heroin addict, and now he has decided that the quiet old man who lives under the stairs (Quintin) is a serial killer because “quiet people are the craziest.” This confirms that Dion is not a RHONY fan. But serial killer or not, he’s a big black guy and he could use some backup. Dion decides he likes him because he reminders of his grandfather. So his grandfather is a serial killer? Dion’s armed robbery warrant from Detroit goes over well with the guys. He is confident he is fitting in nicely.
In C pod there is a guy who passed out. Quintin thinks he is having a seizure. They call the guards who do absolutely nothing. At least one of the inmates knew to turn him on his side, but the idiots holding him (which is the opposite of what you should do) wonder which side, as if that makes a difference. They never did get him on his side. And I didn’t see any seizure but the inmates said he was “spazzing.” I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to stop people from holding down someone having a seizure. Quintin was disturbed by the lack of intervention by the guards, eventually they wheel the dude out unconscious in a damn wheelchair.
Ashleigh is struggling with her sobriety because there are so many drugs on the top tier. She is bunking downstairs with Sheri who she is also close with. Neither knows the other is in the program. Oh wait. Sheri has figured it out. Apparently they gave the girls white longjohn t-shirts that were exactly the same, and they all wore all white underwear so they didn’t have to wear prison underwear and they scuffed up the new longjohns to make them look used. Who knew Sheri was paying such close attention to details? If she lives, she will have some good intel. She tells Ashleigh and they are both happy to have a solid ally in the clink. But they might want to ask Tami from last season about that.
Mona has stopped whining about her accommodations long enough to talk to the girls who are addicts about what addiction is like. She is starting to blame herself for her daughters addiction.
In F Pod, the upstairs druggies shoot coffee all night and scream and yell and run around and no one can sleep. It’s an upstairs versus downstairs war and Sheri is ready to whoop some ass. They are also screaming about drugs and Ashleigh is having lots of cravings to overcome.
Sheri missed her daughter’s 8th birthday and he daughter is very unhappy with her about that.
Ashleigh calls Zac and all he can do is talk about the hotel suite he is in and the white Mustang he rented for his job interview in Vegas. He never asks Ashleigh a damn thing. This has to be a huge trigger for her. The time rant out before she could say a thing.
Sheri has enough of the noise upstairs. A fight is brewing. I think Sheri needs to go up there and straighten that little 19-year-old out.
Next Week: Sheri confronts the 19-year-old who is the HBIC of the druggies. A race riot breaks out in C Pod. And Brian is a goner.
