So I finally finished my exam and have emerged from under a pile of revision notes. Again, this week is a double ep recap week, so if you haven’t seen the last episode yet, don’t read this to the end!
So, we left it with Piper and Larry sharing some home truths, on the edge of breaking up if not actually broken up. We join her trudging around the toilets with cleaning gear, her punishment for getting Pennsatucky sent to pysch.
She runs across Crazy Eyes who seems to do the cleaning as a way of calming herself. Piper tries to apologize for Larry’s Radio broadcast but it doesn’t wash. Crazy Eyes, she says, ‘you’re not a nice person’. No threats, just a simple declaration of how she feels. Bit of a metaphor for where Piper is now.
Suzanne, dispenser of wisdom
Piper is floored by this, and the implication that Crazy Eyes thinks she needs to work on her inner demons.
Alex comes to offer moral support, and Piper reveals that she knows Alex snitched on her in the first place. She claims to be over it, but Alex isn’t sure at all.
The classic soap opera ‘Oh I’m so conflicted whilst being kissed’ look
In the canteen, Pornstache is trying to get Daya to spend time with him, which means Red’s plan still has a chance.
Piper gets back to her dorm, and tries to patch things up with Miss Claudette.
Why won’t you shake my hand?
She gets a frosty response, and it’s like the relationship has reset back to where it was originally. Except that Miss Claudette does mention that Piper is very good at making things worse for herself. ‘The Piper Effect’.
