However, it will require negotiation and strategy. Nichols finds out that Piper is the "head" of the white power "task force" and that she ratted out Ruiz. Now Piper is freaking out because Ruiz is out to get her and she realizes she might just be alone. Aleida stops studying for her GED and Diaz isn't happy. Aleida doesn't see the point.

Linda and Caputo's prison education plan is passed by the MCC board, however, the courses are not what Caputo envisioned. Red throws a welcome back party for Nichols and Piper decides to go even though she wasn't invited. She then learns that she's burned some bridges she shouldn't have. Written by dancer-78647
