A + E opted not to provide any stills of the 60 Days In Reunion to the press. I waited until it was over hoping they might do some after the fact like they do with Project Runway All Stars photos but no dice. Then things got busy. Last night I picked through the episode to pull some photos. As I was doing this I discovered that David still doesn’t think he did anything wrong. He denied telling the guard who all the participants were, even thought the Sheriff was told the information from the guard. He said something slipped out accidentally and some point and issued an” oopsy my bad” sort of apology and most of them seemed to forgive him.
I’m not sure this show is how I want to spend my Saturday. I have things to do. So I’m going to keep this final 60 Days In short and sweet. (Edit: Famous last words.)
The Issues With Segregation
David try to blame editing. Everyone laughed. They complained about the food and the dining schedule. 4:30 am breakfast, 10:30 am lunch and 4:30 pm dinner. So there were twelve hours between dinner and breakfast.
They talked about the race issue. The Sheriffs don’t seem to think they can do anything about it. They have decided to keep the young inmates away from the old school gangsters and hope it eventually agrees out. Abner talks about drop color prisons where they go to better prisons if they agree to have no affiliations in the prison.
There was so much filler in this episode. Showing scenes from the season and a ridiculous countdown of most shocking moment of the first four seasons.
Abner says fell back into being an inmate in there. He says he did what he had to do and he doesn’t regret it. He says something told him not to take that situation any farther. No one seems to think any different. The sheriff didn’t take any action because if the cameras were not there, they would have never known about it. If the kid would have reported it they would have had to discipline Abner. The sheriffs loved Abner.
Everyone, including Mark, was shocked he was being groomed for pod boss. Sometimes Miss Congeniality wins the pageant y’all. Don’t hate, appreciate. Mark says he was really hoping he would get pulled before his prison coronation. The Sheriffs said Mark did great and his debriefing was great. It seems he gave them a lot of information. Mark gives Sheriff Lamb a fist bump.
Steve Was High
Then, the participants found out about Steve. Sheriff Lamb says that it was Steve’s idea to be on his own. When they show the group what Steve did. Abner and Mark are visibly pissed. It takes a lot to piss off Mark.
Next, Steve admits he went into jail high for his 60 Days In. WTF? Steve was seated next to Mark when he came out. But when Steve starts lying about the signal and how it is used, he has to take his chair to the other side of the group. Finally, Sheriff Thomas has had enough of Steve’s mouth. He says he never liked Steve and didn’t want him on the show from the beginning. He’s a fake. He thought he was going to go in there and get his ass beat. Then he couldn’t handle more than a couple of days in jail. Steve says he respects that, “especially from little guys like you.”
Steve Was A Pussy
Mark is mostly pissed that he went on an undercover mission high. So, he starts reading Steve in his polite Preacher man way. After he is done Steve says to say that to him one more time and they are going to have to have a talk. Then, Mark, the preacher man, LEAPS out of his chair and starts saying, “Let’s go!” Mark wants to take off his mike and take this dude out back and snap him in half,
Steve is terrified. I am waiting for him to say he is being bullied. Sheriff Lamb says the kind of chaos he is causing on this set is exactly what he did in the pod. Eventually, Steve said that he didn’t do the best job. Steve says he was just testing the signal to see if people would come.
Eventually, he says he regrets his behavior. Then, he insults Sheriff Thomas again. Sheriff Thomas had his number from the jump and he can’t handle it. Sheriff Thomas has a whole bunch of fancy doodads on his uniform, Steve. He’s doing just fine. You are going back to your prepper shack in the wilderness because no one can stand to be around you. Then, Sheriff Lamb basically dismisses Steve from the stage and he apologizes again as he is showed the door.
David says that blowing Abner’s cover was just a mental slip. He had a lot of mental slips in the jail. Sheriff Thomas says that he’s just glad David admitted it. David still lies about what he told the guard. Even though the guard told the sheriffs everything. Then, Abner sticks up of David. He forgives him.
They don’t know that David blew their cover yet. I mean, they do, but we are pretending like they don’t. David lies. He tells them that he was just giving the guard advice and complimenting him on his job. He didn’t do nuthin! Maybe the guard just put the pieces together on his own.
Then. he whines about editing some more. No police force is ever going to want to work with him. Yeah, cops don’t like snitches any more than inmates do. David thinks he is being scapegoated. Thn. he says he is a very highly decorated cop. I don’t believe that either. He’s a liar.
The Feedback and Changes
In the end,with regard to their missions, Vivian did the best with her Jail Operations mission. David shockingly had the most information about drugs and it led to some quick action. Abner did the best finding out about gangs and race relations. Finally, The Sheriff’s didn’t know that there incoming prisoners knew how far up their rectum they had to go to smuggle things in. They didn’t know that there was a mail system happening via the meal trays. They fixed that immediately. Over all, Sheriff Lamb was pleased with the feedback and has made many implications.
