Sadly, I think the only reason I am still watching this show is because I am waiting to see how many inmates die during filming. This is the worst jail ever by far and it can be very hard to watch. But, it is taping and I am watching so I guess a short 60 Days In Recap is in order. I feel like crap today. I have a slightly elevated temperature. Nothing to speak of for normal people. But, any raised temp send a signal to my dumb brain that I am unwell. And when I get sick, even a tiny bit, I feel like crying. It’s weird. But I haven’t been able to shed tears in weeks if not months. SIGH.
Carlos’ Pod Boss Status Is Going To His Head
Nick’s young protege, Nick got into it with the kid with the shank. Amazingly, security came in and took both of them out of the pod. Then they came back, sent everyone out to the yard and did a “full-search” of the pod. Later, Carlos makes a plea to the officers to get Nick back in the pod. He fills out an official statement for the police. This is going to cause him a lot of problems with all the other inmates now because it makes him look like a snitch. And snitches get stitches. HA! There is an inmate named Kimchi! I bet he is really spicy! The cops brought Nick back.
The next day is Friday the 13th. What could possibly go wrong? Darius is moved from pod A to pod C for some unknown reason. The kid he is trying to help, Deshaun, is also moving along with others. Carlos steals some sort of a metal bar that can be used as shank from the handicapped bathroom. He turns it over to production. Darius and Carlos are in the same pod now. Darius ingratiates with his new inmates by making a betting square for basketball. But for some reason, the guards took away the TV in the middle of the game. This is problematic. The inmates want their soup or quarters back.
Carlos Faces Repercussions For Giving An Official Statement
Nick lets Carlos know that the guys now think he is the police because he wrote a statement for Nick. Things are starting to come unglued for the men’s and the women’s pods. This is not good. But, Arrogant Carlos goes out to confront the entire pod and dares them to come to his cell and handle the situation. Then Darius wanders himself into the middle of it all. Good Grief.
More Women Move Into Gen Pop
Trinity moves to gen pop and the other inmates are immediately taken by her. The women are living in the same jumpsuit for a month now. The deputies say they won’t be doing laundry for another week. Ew. They only give them two pads a day when they are on their period. Double yuck. They want everyone to buy their own pads. The towels are more like dirty rags. They don’t have enough toilet paper. Now Rose has some sort of infection. She is worried she has kidney stones. She has had them before. Rose is in a lot of pain. Rose uses the distress signal. She decides to stick it out. She is feeling better. After her interview she was treated for a UTI.
The person who I guess is there to check on Rose, even though he is a deputy and not a medic, cannot get into the cell because the automatic door system is down. This place is just a torture chamber not a jail. Sarah is begging Trinity to let her wash her hair. She’s obsessed with her. Trinity starts talking about her girlfriend. The girl backs off. Rose is pissed that the women don’t have basic hygiene items like soap or toilet paper. They are apparently expected to purchase all that but these women don’t have any or enough money on their books.
The Sheriff Actually Did Something
Rose demands to talk to the sheriff immediately. I guess because he loves the cameras, he allows it. Shockingly he listens. But, will he really do anything? Meanwhile, Sarah accuses Trinity of being “60 Days In.” WTF? That came out of nowhere. Now everyone thinks that someone in there a plant from 60 Days In. But all of that seems to be forgotten when the deputy brings all the women brand new jumpsuits. Then, a female deputy comes in and passes out toilet tissue and six sanitary pads each. They act like it is Christmas and Santa brought them everything they asked him for.
Carlos is losing his mind with the other inmates. Carlos says he is a lion that is going to roar. He is suck and egomaniac. Next week: there is a new inmate in town and he is not the least bit intimidated by Carlos or anyone else. Over in the women’s cell, one inmate, I think in Rose’s cell masturbates loudly pissing people in her cell off. And, all the women in the women’s cell have lice. How does that just happen? I have no idea but they are all blaming one new girl and ready to beat her ass.
This episode was more like the ones we had in the past. Not quite as traumatizing.
