It’s time to get caught up on 60 Days In recaps! Over in the women’s pod, Heather’s grand plan to get information involves striking up a relationship with Betsey. I don’t see the strategy in that. I also don’t see why they need to be in there 30 days to figure out the problems. The problems are simple. They need to have more than one women’s pod. They need to have at least two guards in the pod at all times. The guards need more training. The days need more structure. It’s all very basic stuff. Eventually, Betsey and Heather make out. Well, basically, Betsey lays one on Heather and Heather pushed her away. Now Heather feels badly for hurting her feelings. Nothing about this situation is a good idea.
Vanessa is back on point after getting a note from Tony. She was ready to quit until that happened. Then, for no apparent reason the guards decided to shut down her cell. They kicked her and her cellmate out. Vanessa was put in the cell with Angel. One of the girls who openly rolls “clone” cigarettes in the middle of the pod. Also, it looks like there might be three people in the cell. What is the point of this move? The two other cellmates are also suspicious about why Vanessa was put in their cell. Vanessa, you in danger girl.
But Angel, the violent cellmate Vanessa is stuck with is talking about stabbing another inmate who she thinks ratted her out to the police and got her locked up. Then, when Vanessa gets called to shower, the other two roommates think she is 60 Days In. They are conspiring to shank her in the cell when she comes back. When they are all in the cell they start asking for her full name so they can find her on Facebook and come visit her in Arkansas when they get out. Vanessa tells Heather she is done.
The Men’s Pod
Tony continues to be full blown inmate. Meanwhile, Pony Tail has met an inmate named Champagne. Champagne is a physical threat in the pod. Pony Tail has concerns about him. Tony on the other hand just wants to put him in his place. Because, Tony. Tony gave Champagne some snacks and is already anticipating him not paying him back. This is going to be a fight. Actually, Champagne caved and gave Tony what he owed him. I am kind of surprised about that.
Donovan is still trying to get chewing tobacco. And finally someone has made it through intake with about half a can of Copenhagen. He trades two e-cigs for the chew.
Two white guys with man buns have some sort of beef over one of them touching the other one’s wife inappropriately when they were on the streets. One of them offers Champagne forty bucks to beat the other one up. So he does. The guards didn’t intervene at all. There were no consequences at all for Champagne. Nothing. Donovan is furious. He says Champagne needs to be dealt with immediately.
Instead, since there are no consequences for violence in the pod, Champagne starts showing out. He’s acting crazy. The one security guard calls for a transport to move Champagne to another pod. The guard just wants to eat his Chik-Fil-A in peace. So he got nothing for the assault and two days in lockdown for being an idiot.
