The two choke each other. An impatient Swope and Annalisa discuss their upset over Daddy not bringing in oxycontin. Annalisa runs over to Badison and confronts her. Swope attempts to stop her and watches as Badison punches Annalisa. Swope runs over and shanks Badison, telling her not to mess with D-Block. She is put in the SHU after ("Changing Winds")

Swope returns from the SHU and joins in on the D-Block chant. She is seen to be very happy as she goes outside. Swope is seen with Daddy before the kickball match, eagerly waiting the arrival of the other team.  In excitement, she pulls out her shiv before the game even starts. Daddy tells her to put it away and wait. When Artesian McCullough tells the teams to pick new captains per Maria Ruiz, Tina protests. When Nicole Eckelcamp catches the ball, Tina retracts her shiv and continues the game, rather happily. She jumps in happiness when she makes a home run, cheered on  ("Be Free")
