Plot [edit | edit source]
Present[edit | edit source]
Aleida Diaz is freed from prison early in the morning. Her daughter, Dayanara Diaz, and Gloria Mendoza are there to see her off. Daya remembers she had a gift to give to her mother but there's no time to go get it. They say tearful goodbyes and Aleida is free.
Blanca Flores is still standing atop the cafeteria table. She has wet herself and can barely stay awake. Desi Piscatella tries to intimidate her but she is adamant about staying there. Piper Chapman is disturbed by Piscatella's power trip and the racist white inmates making fun of Blanca.
Aleida is picked up by Margarita, Cesar's girlfriend. As they go to leave, a correctional officer hands her Daya's gift, a drawing of themselves holding hands. In the SHU, Sister Ingalls is escorted to exercise time. She calls for Sophia Burset and Sophia responds; the two are overjoyed to hear one another. Nicky Nichols vows to Galina 'Red' Reznikov that she's getting clean for real this time. Daya talks to Maria Ruiz about being alone now that her mother is out, and Maria offers her a place in her group. Gloria doesn't approve and distracts Daya away from Maria.
On the outside, Aleida is nervous as she tries to enjoy breakfast at a cafe. She is intimidated by how many men are there but tries to focus. She says she's going to find all her kids in foster care if she can. She's disturbed to find out Margarita has a child with Cesar and snaps at a man looking at her. They decide to go shopping, where Aleida buys a nice dress. She realises Margarita is buying clothes for a new boyfriend and becomes agitated, saying Cesar defended her and deserves better. Margarita reasons that she cannot wait ten years for Cesar to get out, and was nice enough to pick Aleida up from prison, but Aleida walks out. She heads to her cousin Jazmina's house, only to discover that Jazmina has sold most of Aleida's possessions and spent the savings that Aleida left with her to keep safe. She heads back to Margarita's house, who has already set up a bed for her. During the night, Aleida comforts Margarita's crying baby and shows her the picture Daya drew.
In prison, Nicky is going through withdrawals and looking for a hit. No one will give her anything because Red has told them not to, threatening to tamper with their cafeteria food if they let her relapse. In the SHU, Sister Ingalls works out a way to pass notes to Sophia to lift her spirits. She later tries to internally smuggle a phone to her, but is revealed when she accidentally sneezes. Caputo sees a chance to get word out about Sophia's inhumane treatment and takes a picture of Sophia in her cell, using the phone. Taystee asks Caputo if she can screen The Wiz, a black re-casting of The Wizard of Oz, at movie night, because the last eleven films have all only featured white people. He agrees, as long as she can handle the criticism.
Maritza Ramos is vomiting in the bathroom after her incident at the guard's cabin. The other guards wonder if she's pregnant but Artesian McCullough says it's way too soon for morning sickness. They talk about seeing her with Thomas Humphrey and Stratman discuss how weird and sadistic he is, but then ultimately chooses to believe Humphrey probably just had sex with Maritza. McCullough expresses disgust with the "brotherhood" attitude but Stratman says she's part of it too, and doesn't get to act like she's better than them.
While cleaning, Suzanne Warren admits to Lorna that she would like a second chance with Maureen Kukudio, as she fears that might be the only chance she had to be intimate with someone. Morello encourages Suzanne to approach Maureen again.
Joel Luschek confesses to Nicky that he slept with Judy King to get her out of Max. Nicky isn't thankful because she knows Luschek has a misguided crush on her. She asks for help with her withdrawal, and Luschek gives her a joint, which she scorns but takes anyway. Flaca Gonzales tries to cheer up Maritza, who reveals what Humphrey's did to her at the guard's cabin. During movie night, racial tension rises until the movie is switched off. Maureen and Suzanne sneak to the broom closet to have sex but Maureen stops just as Suzanne is about to climax as punishment for Suzanne leaving her alone in the woods. Maria again tries to initiate Daya into her group but Gloria puts a stop to it.
Caputo meets secretly with Danny Pearson and gives him Sister Ingalls phone with the photo of Sophia on it, telling him to leak it to Crystal Burset. Piper tries to give Blanca some food but a guard orders her to stand up on the table, too.
Leon McDonald and Piscatella are wondering what to do about construction, as the garden and greenhouse are in the way. Since Caputo won't answer his phone, they decide to bulldoze over them, anyway. McDonald discovers Aydin's dismembered body and throws up.
