Plot []

On the van run, Maritza Ramos points out to Dixon how strange it is that there is always a gardener on the CO's campus. Her intention is to send away the drug dealer as she doesn't want to participate in Maria Ruiz's drug ring anymore; her plan is successful.  

Carrie 'Big Boo' Black doesn't want to be friends with Tiffany Doggett if she's going to forgive Charlie Coates for raping her. Lorna "Morello" Muccio is visited by her sister Frankie again, who has nothing but praise for Lorna's husband. Lorna interprets this as them cheating on her and becomes enraged. Maria's crew realize that if they don't shower or cover themselves in strong scents, the guards won't search them inappropriately. In the bathrooms, Maria confronts Maritza, angry that there were no drugs delivered.

Aleida Diaz comes to Gloria Mendoza asking her to take care of Daya now that she is getting out, telling Gloria that Daya is her daughter now. Red finds Nicky Nichols in the bathroom smoking heroin. Red is guilty and utterly dismayed that she has been unable to help Nicky.  

Sister Ingalls tries a number of rebellious activities in order to get sent to solitary confinement where Sophia Burset is being held. None of the guards take her attempts seriously. Gloria sees one of her attempts and tells her that she has to do something serious, so Ingalls punches her in the face and insults her. Gloria and Ingalls pretend to have a conflict and Gloria demands Ingalls to be taken to the SHU. They share a thumbs up as Ingalls is marched off. Ingalls has a phone however doesn't account for the fact that the SHU is solitary and doesn't know how she will contact Sophia from within the unit.  

CO Stratman demands Blanca Flores shower and when she doesn't, he clues into her rebellion. He makes her stand on top of one of the cafeteria tables until she agrees to relent.  

Maritza Ramos is taken to the cabins and forced by Humphrey to choose between eating ten dead flies or a live baby mouse, based on a leisurely conversation she had earlier with Marisol Gonzales. When she tries to beg her way out of it, he holds a gun to her head as she cries.

Nicky comes and finds Red in her office, promising to come clean. Ingall is seen in the SHU, her hand touches her neck where her locket usually hangs, however it has been taken off her. The episode ends with Dixon telling Stratman he may have made a mistake with Blanca, who is gaining much attention from refusing against the guards.
