This is one of my favorite shows to watch, and I wish more of you were watching it with me. I appreciate those of you who chat with me in the comments. It you would like to start watching with us, you can get caught up here. I am excited to see if Steve blows his cover tonight.
F300 (Jazmyn, Brooke, Vivian)
Jazmyn refuses to admit she is not following her training and it was no accident that the three girls started eating together. Jazmyn finally starts to mingle to figure out the gang situation in the women’s pod. Brooke thinks Jazmyn is fitting in too well. As opposed to Brooke who no one ever talks to.
Jazmyn finds out someone stole the PIN to her phone card and stole five dollars from her account and she loses her damn mind. She thinks she is going to shout at and threaten the whole pod and the thief is just gonna confess. Nope. She says, “Y’all thought I was nice, but I’m the most fucked up one in this bitch!” And scene…
Vivian seems way to happy to be in jail if you ask me. Her demeanor is more like someone at girls’ night out rather than someone who just got arrested and strip searched. She is the popular girl in school that everyone wants to sit with and it is killing Brooke.
Brooke is irritated that she is not the pretty one. She refers to herself as this pretty Barbie who doesn’t fit in. She had that attitude from the second she walked in and everyone in the pod took an immediate dislike to her. Brooke bought a lot of commissary and randomly gave Jazmyn chips. These girls are idiots. Brooke starts trading four candy bars for half a sandwich she will not eat with the biggest druggie in the pod. Did they not teach them anything before they went in? Did they not give them a test to see if they were paying attention? This dumb bitch is going to get herself killed. Jazmyn and Vivian both tell her loudly and publicly in front of the pod not to give that girl anything. She does not listen.
Vivian and Jazmyn are riding hard on the druggie, Kristen, to make sure she doesn’t rip of Brooke and she pays her back her snacks. Why? Why would two random girls be all ride or die for some dumb Barbie looking bitch that is doing stupid shit? These three are all going to blow their covers. We may not have any plants left in the jail in 60 days at this point. They are all dumb as hell. Jazmyn and Vivian convince the whole pod not to trade with Kristin ever again. Brooke is pissed because she wanted to befriend the druggie to find out how the drugs are coming in. I get that… but you don’t do it by giving her ten dollars worth of commissary with no insurance policy. It’s dumb.
Steve has just gotten off the phone after threatening producers that he will blow up his cover if someone doesn’t get him out of there soon. He ignored the first producers when they came in to remove him and now he has all eyes on him because they literally had to send in someone with a note and a phone number to tell him to calm his dumb ass down. He’s a loose Canon and Sheriff Lamb needs to send his ass home. That is exactly what the Sheriff does. He doesn’t even give him an exit interview. Yes!
When to corrections officer goes in to get his stuff, the rest of the pod decides Steve was a cop. The officers who know who the plants are assess their progress so far. They are worried about the females because they are hanging around each other and that will draw attention to them. They are worried about Mark, because… well, Mark. They think David is doing well and Abner is as well but they worry that Abner may revert to his inmate mindset.
Last week I was not sure what pod Abner was in but apparently he was in H100 with Steve. A new white guy has rolled into the pod and the word is he was rolled out of another unit for being a snitch. Apparently the head of any of the three races can tell the jail that one of their own needs to be relocated and the guards make that happen. It’s probably for the safety of the ostracized prisoner. Abner decides to tell his crew that the new guy has been rolled out of two pods for being a rat and he needs to be rolled out again.
Oney the head of the whites in H100 refused to roll out the new guy because he has no proof that the guy is a snitch. So now the Chicanos and the Whites are going to have a race war. The Chicano gather up the Paisas a Mexican crew to prepare for battle. The Kinfolk are going to come for the WOODS too. All of this is happening at Abner’s behest.
Abner pulls Oney, the pod boss for the WOODS aside and tell him that he needs to roll the new white boy out or there is about to be a racial issue. When Abner applies pressure, Oney gets pissed and tells Abner he doesn’t even know who he is coming at him like this. Abner realizes he might have overstepped so he goes to Oney and introduces himself and shakes his hand and tells him he didn’t mean to overstep. Oney tells Abner he will check out the new guy and make a decision. He finds out that he was not rat; however, he let another race push him around and he didn’t fight back so he still has to go. Where is this white boy supposed to go? This is his third pod. And where is the head of the Cholos for this pod? It looks like Abner is doing his job for him. How does this happen? Abner is feeling himself now and he plans to take down Oney and put the Cholos above the WOODS in this pod. That will not happen without a major race war. How is this helping Abner’s mission? Is Abner already going full inmate?
H200 ( Mark, David)
David is trying to keep the pod boss, Rocker in check. Rocker already views him as a leader. Josh, the moronic leader of the WOODS approaches David to get him to have the Kinfolk keep their cells clean. I feel like he goes to David because he is afraid of Rocker. So David goes to Rocker with the news. Rocker listens to David and calls a meeting and tells everyone they have to keep the rooms clean. David jumps in to tell them they need to shower every day and brush their teeth. It’s amazing how much power David has in such a short amount of time.
Later, Rocker just blurts out to David, “My connections for pills is an ex-DEA agent.” Apparently he got fired from the DEA for stealing cash. Rocker goes on and on about the huge amount of pills he has access to via this guy. He’s the only one the DEA agent deals with. David doesn’t think Rocker does drugs and that he is just the middleman. But Rocker can’t ever seem to keep his leg still. David then says every single person in there does drugs. David gets really cocky and declares he’s the coldest motherfucker to ever do this show. He knows everything. Oh here we go with another know-it-all.
Mark is getting a pretty harsh edit. They are just waiting for him to fuck up. Why don’t they wait until he does to be so critical? Josh the leader of the WOODS calls a meeting of the whites. Josh has 34 violent felony charges. Josh yells at everyone to have a cleaning schedule in their dorms. It’s the whites TV day and Josh is encouraging people to tell him what channel they want the TV on. Mark just wants to read his book. I feel like Mark might be good at this because everyone underestimates him, he seems to be laying low and staying out of trouble and just observing and wandering around aimlessly.
I spoke too soon. Mark asks the guards to put a TV on ESPN because it is March Madness. For some reason Rocker, the black pod boss has his own TV all day every day. The other TV is the shared TV. Mark had the TV changed to sports and then went back to reading the Bible. Now everyone is pissed at him because he changed the channel and is not even watcing TV. Rocker had the shared TV changed back. Mark went to Josh to demand the Whites get their way, but Josh apparently unwilling to stand up to Rocker. Now Mark is pissed at Josh and thinks he is weak. Everyone is now pissed off at Mark.
Next week: David is drunk with power and screams at the whole pod that if they are not a boss or second in command he doesn’t want them approaching him. Oh, Lawd. In the girls’ pod Jazmyn decides she knows who stole her PIN and is going to take action. Mark tries to start a Bible study “to gain the prisoners trust.” Someone in the Cholo pod stole four dollars so Abner is going to hold an investigation and trial.
