B-Block is a cell block in Litchfield Maximum Security. Inmates in B-Block are neutral in the C-Block vs. D-Block gang war. B-Block is also known as "Florida" and inmates there include those who are elderly, disabled, mentally ill, transgender, or somehow need protection from the harsh environment in Max (due to being a snitch, ex-cop, etc.). Inmates in Florida wear pink, and are entitled to special privileges like TV, pudding cups, fresh fruit, etc. B-Block is generally peaceful and drama-free due to the nature of its inhabitants.
