This is going to be the grossest episode ever. They only have two weeks left, but the sewer system is busted and there is shit literally floating through all the pods. What in the holy hell did they do to convince them not to quit at this point?
I’m gagging in the first few seconds of just watching this on TV. I can’t be too descriptive, just know it’s horrible. The pod has been flooded with feces, sewage and leeches for over three hours.
It now been eleven hours that C-Pod has literally been full of shit, piss, sewer water and leeches. Quintin, the observer, notices an inmate on the floor in the fetal position. He says he has been throwing up blood and has blood in his stool. He has severe abdominal pain. Ryan thinks he has appendicitis and his appendix could rupture. They seemingly have no way to call for help and try banging on the door but no one hears them, or maybe no one cares. Eventually, a guard comes and she mocks Ryan asking if he is a doctor. Really? As he said, who cares if he is a janitor or an astronaut at this point, he is alerting you to a medical emergency. The guard said she already knew the guy was sick. Wow. Eventually, they take him out of the pod only to hand him an aspirin and put him back in 12 minutes later.
Things are better over in the ladies pod. Sherri uses three maxi pads to cover the drain. It has slowed things down. For now. Sherri says about the pads, “Well, we only get two a month so I thought I’d save my two for something special!” Eventually, the guards come in to tell them they have to move to classification pod because there is no water. All the women from all the women’s pods are there now. Including Mackenzie who has issues with Sheri. Sheri starts to have a panic attack. She tells production that classification is known for being a place where people get jumped. They can just lock the door and no one can get to you.
Around ten pm, they move everyone again. This time Mackenzie and Sheri are sent to different locations.
Over in D, they think they have problems but they don’t. They just have had the water shut off for several hours. Dion decides to get all mouthy with the prison guard. Later a female guard tries to tell them that they should count their blessing because A, B and C pods are all ankle deep in shit. Dion continues to have a hissy fit because he has gone nine hours without water. Really? How much water have you drank today? Dion needs to poop. The toilets are all full. Now that is a real problem.
Another guard comes into D to say that the water will be back on and they can use the toilets. He doesn’t seem to get the issue. He also says they are not getting the drinking water they were told they would get. Dion is gone total inmate at this point.
Rec Room 1
Most of the girls including all three of ours are moved into Rec Room 1 where there is one toilet and one drinking fountain. The F Pod crew quickly goes to a new pod where there is running water. But there are twice as many inmates in there as there should be. And one of the long timers is in the pod with the woman who snitched on her. #Drama
The snitch gets her ass beat a few times and Ashleigh and Sheri are traumatized just witnessing it.
A ton of guys move into Rec Room one including C pod and the dying guy who we get to see continuously vomiting. At some point they bring the guy out for “treatment” again. The sheriff says the guy just had a 24 hour virus. I think it was hour 30 of him puking nonstop that the 24 hour virus diagnosis was made. I do not believe the sheriff. Would it kill them to send him to the clinic?
Rec Room 2
Most of the guys including all three of ours are moved into Rec Room 2 where there is one toilet and one drinking fountain. There are a LOT of guys in there. Dion continues to act a fool. The sheriff is concerned about riots. He’s worried that Dion will be the one to start one.
Remember when I said the rec rooms had drinking fountains? Apparently they were not working either. Much like the heat they have but refused to turn on. Halfway through day two of the sewer issue, they bring them lunch with nothing to drink. This is just some piss poor handling of the situation. When you have a hundred criminals in one room with one toilet and no water, this is the time to spring for free Gatorade and some snacks to keep them happy.
The chief of police or someone pulls the crew and tells them it is not safe for them to film in the rec rooms anymore. He’s worried they might take one of them hostage. The crew decides to film anyway.
There is a lot of talk in the rec rooms about the guys rioting.
Next week: A new girl comes to the women’s pod. The male inmates are even more restless. Dion gets into it with another inmate over the bathroom situation.
