Finally have a moment to catch up on the inmates and see how they are surviving their time.
South Annex – Jaclin, Stephanie, Angele
Jaclin has managed to get herself and her pink hair bow yanked out of the unit again, and is likely on the way to segregation. It is unclear how long she was gone for but she claims she was thrown on the ground and the took her nails off of her. Stephanie doesn’t even look up let alone as if she is okay or even acknowledge her in any way.
Later, there is a gas leak in South Annex. It is getting increasingly worse. The guards aren’t doing anything about it. The girls are starting to panic. After an hour they finally decide to relocate all of the girls to the rec room with their beds. After three hours the fires department finally arrives. Jaclin is having a hard time. with the whole thing. Jaclin tells the producers that she wants Jaclin to go home. She says it with that crazy smirk on her face. The firemen shut down a faulty gas valve on the heating system. Everyone moves back into I-pod. Things have become physically between Angele and Gabriella.
600 – Matt, Johnny, Emmanuel
A group of young guys arrives in the 600 zone. That is a bit odd because usually this is the older guys zone. They were quiet at first and then they saw Tebow and realized that they are all in the same gang. Suddenly, the old guys are outnumbered by a bunch of young gangbangers.
Emmanuel finds out that the old roommate before him was HIV positive and had wiped blood and other fluids on the cell wall. Emmanuel is going to demand cleaning supplies. Despite going at the guards all the wrong kinds of attitude, they do bring him gloves and some cleaning supplies. Yet, he still keeps running his mouth.
Tebow, who is the gang leader of the Bloods that just arrived, is pushing the emergency button and when they respond he just says, “I love you.” Matt can hear this happening and it is pissing him off because the inmates do it all the time, and when he needed them the other night, no one answered his call. He is pissed that there are no consequences. Matt is once again threatening to get violent with an inmate.
Matt tries reasoning with Tebow about pushing the button, but Tebow basically told him to fuck off. He also told Matt to stop pissing in cups. Matt said he will piss in a cup whenever he wants. Tebow says he will press the button whenever he wants. Johnny was there and he thought Matt was going to swing on Tebow so he tries to diffuse him.
Carl, AKA Big Swole, has moved into 600. He is the guy that broke Nate’s tablet. Matt decides to go introduce himself. He finds out Big Swole is an MMA fighter. Matt claims he is too. So they seem to bond. Matt let’s him know he is with him if he ever needs anything and they bro hug it out. Matt announces to the entire zone that Swole is his boy and the baddest man in town and that they are both MMA fighters. Matt and Swole do a little bit of shadow boxing where Tebow and see. Matt has now decided that he is the pod king. Matt is something else.
500 – Nate, Allen, Andrew
It’s football season and every week some of the guys put commissary or other items in a box to bet on their team. Oneill is the guy who keeps the “football kitty” and it appears that at the end of the season, whoever got the most games right wins the kitty. Someone has come into Oneill’s cell and stolen the kitty. This is not good.
“On It” has identified a fellow gangbanger, “Man Man” as the thief. He tells him to give it back or they will all jump his ass. Man Man doesn’t do anything. On It can’t do anything without permission from the highest ranking blood. That would be Tebow over in 600 so On It goes to the door between the two zones to talk to him. Tebow has stuff of his own in that kitty so he tells On It to go get it. On It goes after Man Man. In the meantime, Shyne goes to the door and seems pissed. Oh I get it now, On It had to ask permission because he is not a blood. I wondered why they suddenly had to ask permission to fight. If a nonblood fights a blood then he fights all of them unless they agree to let him handle some business.
We finally see Andrew this week when he walks up to Nate to see what is going on. Shyne decides to show On It he is the top blood in 500. He tells On It to hit him, so On It lays him out. Then the two go at it an Shyne is getting his ass beat so the rest of the bloods join in to beat the hell out of both of them. I’m not really following these prison rules. It is starting to look like On It is a blood after all. Oddly, after their beatdowns, On It and Shyne hug it out. One of the bloods returns the football kitty yo Oneill.
Next Week: The guys in 500 decide that Andrew is gay. The female Swole in South Annex is accused of bullying someone. The person changes rooms and the guards tell her she can’t move herself. I think it stupid Stephanie who says Swole was bullying the girl. Emmanuel starts some sort of Black Lives Matter protest of one while the whole zone looks at him like he is crazy.
