Larry Bloom: I was supposed to go to that.
Larry Bloom: Really?
Larry Bloom: Yeah.
Piper Chapman: You were?
Larry Bloom: Yeah, but then I sat down. Gravity works very strongly on me. Especially when it's sweltering outside and when Almost Famous is playing for the 400th time.
Piper Chapman: Yeah.
Larry Bloom: Plus, I'm plant-sitting, so, you know, if I went anywhere I'd have to take them with me, and I'm not sure if they're all over 21. So...

The girl who wanted to give back what she stole
18 May 2014 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The main plot of this episode is probably the saddest story so far: Tricia (Madeline Brewer, 23 years old ladies and gentlemen) and her downward spiral caused by heroin addiction. Certainly her tragic weaknesses and Mendez (Pablo Schreiber) heartless behavior rise some questions about Alex (Laura Prepon) who used to be on the top of the drug market. How much she should feel involved in the many other Tricias who died on the streets or in prison or at home for an heroin overdose? Honestly I would have like to see the show going a little deeper into the issue.

Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning) is now convinced she can heal the other inmates with her hands and the power of Jesus flowing into her and so on and so on. She is overly crazy and hilarious, the scene with Janae Watson (played by Vicky Jeudi) is just a masterpiece.

While Piper (Taylor Schilling) and Alex are living the lesbian dream (yes, in prison, but still) and Nicky (Natascha Lyonne) the lesbian nightmare, we get to know a little more about Piper's bisexuality and how Larry came into her life.

Miss Claudette (portrayed by Michelle Hurst) finally receives a visit from the love her life Baptiste, it is like watching a short version of "Love in the time of cholera": miss Claudette is a distillation of sweetness.

This episode with all its plots is probably the one with the widest emotional content, it's 100% dramatic and contemporaneously has some of the most funny scenes we've seen so far: thank you Lord for Pennsatucky, amen!
