Excellent and Sad Back Story
24 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this episode because it was all about Tricia Miller. But before I get in to that, Piper and Alex, wow! They have been having lots of fun since Piper got out of the SHU. Piper hears also that Larry will be on a radio interview talking about him and Piper's relationship. To confirm it, Daya is in fact pregnant.

A group of kids come in for a Sacred Straight visit. That's the thing I didn't really like about this episode. The girl in the wheelchair was so rude and disrespectful to everyone at the Litch, it made me wanna cripple her even more. She was so mean and rude to everyone.

Tricia gets out of her rehab. This immediately renders Mendez to start asking her to buy from him. Her flashbacks show she made some very bad decisions. She went to a store and stole something. Then she went back and said, "I left without paying for this." She wanted to give back what she stole. Which I guess, is good.

Mendez is afraid of what Tricia is going to do. So he locks her up in a side closet. While having taken his pills, she overdoes and dies while in the closet. So Mendez comes back to see she is dead. So he takes an electrical cord and wraps it around Tricia's neck to make it look like she committed suicide.

Nicky apologizes to Red for being so rude and angry towards her at the end. But Red has a new plan for Mendez. She sits down with Nicky, with Nicky thinking it's a lecture. But no, "It's about Mendez. We have to take that motherf*cker down." A great line to end the episode.

10/10- left me hangin
