Janae Watson
19 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What I liked most about this episode was Janae's story. Her flashbacks were excellent. She returns from the SHU. Her flashbacks really made you think that you should have sympathy for her. She was a track star in high school. What got her sent to prison was because she was running away from a robbery with her boyfriend, a guy who cared didn't care about her at all. Not one bit. He should have been arrested, not her.

Healy holds the first WAC meeting in his office with Piper, Taystee, Ruiz, and Chang. Janae is angry with Piper because she knows Piper had the screwdriver that sent Janae to the SHU.

Piper makes an agreement with Healy that she will give him the cell phone and he will reopen the track. Piper tries to send a message on the cell phone. She opens up the cell phone only to see a d*ck pic. She closes the phone but not until she deletes all texts. She gives it to Mr. Healy.

Caputo doesn't like the idea that Healy found the phone. So he decides to reopen the track because of Piper's idea. He rubs it in Healy's face. Healy hates Piper now. In the beginning of the season he gave her advice and helped her out. Now he just hates her.

Larry goes out to dinner with Polly. Afterwards, her goes to a bar. He talks the bartender. He complains and says he wishes he could hit on her but he can't because he is engaged to a woman in prison. To be honest, I hate Larry. His story lines suck. Every episode I say, "ugh," when Larry comes on screen. I just know the subject he has in each episode is going to be awful and I am right every time.

The crazy lady goes nuts in the cell after seeing her cell phone is gone. The episode ends with Piper and Janae running around the track. Janae runs by and says, "This doesn't make us even." Healy stands by and gives Piper a death stare. she shouldn't have made this enemy.

8/10- Love the back story
