Episode 5 awaits, a week late. Cough. Moving swiftly on.
Piper has survived the screwdriver disaster and is settling into Prison life. She doesn’t look too happy about it but then again she is in prison. She has a coffee and wanders outside to read a book.
Yes its a chicken.
Nicky and Morello are busy having sex in the chapel. Afterwards, Morello breaks up with Nicky, which strikes me as bit of a slimeball move, but she’s worried about her fiance. She’s also worried that Nicky is stretching her vagina by her overly enthusiastic love making. Nicky doesn’t seem too bothered by this, she’s more worried that they’re about to be discovered by some visitors to the Chapel. Young love, isn’t it sweet.
Pennsatucky is angry that she can’t hang her enormous crucifix on the Chapel wall, but this is something she’s tried before and knows she can’t do, as its too big. She claims that all the other religions get better treatment than she does, but the off hand and nonchalant way she gets dealt with shows that she must wheel this one out every time. Sister Ingalls brightly counters to the insult that she’s ‘The Pope’s bitch’ with ‘I like to think I’m the Popes homey.’
Not all there. In fact not even slightly present at all.
Meanwhile Boo is trying to convince Sophia she could sue to get her hormones back. Even if this was true, the difficulties in arranging to sue from inside Prison would make it improbable. Boo tells her that Sister Ingalls is on Estrogen though, which Sofia needs to keep her sex change going. This gives Sophia something to think about, and she does as she absent-mindedly pulls Boo’s hair. Its a bit of a worry how far Sophia is going to go to get her estrogen.
Dia’s mom wants her to help do her make-up, and in the process Dia has another meeting with the PO Bennett. Although they try to make it look like it was in fact an argument, Dia’s mom is not fooled at all.
This is not the face of someone who believes you
Piper tells Morello about seeing the chicken and it has more of an impact than you might think. All the inmates stare at her, and Morello tells her to talk to Red. Obviously seeing a chicken has some kind of special significance that I can’t see at this point.
This weeks flashbacks are about Dia and her Mother, Aleida. Aleida is definitely a hands off mom, leaving Dia to cope with the kids. When asked why she won’t help, she says ‘I’ve got better things to do.’ So it’s easy to see where the family tension comes from.
