“Orange is the New Black” recap (3.11): We can be heroes


Angie gets released without anyone realizing she’s the wrong inmate. They give her $40 bucks and a bus voucher and send her on her way. Stella calls out Piper for avoiding her, and Piper says she needs to be there for Alex. Despite that, Stella still gives up her panties…for the business. Meanwhile, the guards realized they just let the wrong inmate out the door.

Piper talks to Red about the panty union, and Red offers her criminal expertise for 10%. Her advice is to stop fucking Stella aka don’t shit where you eat. She also tells Piper that she can pay the panty squad by using a money card and a cell phone to pad their commissary. Piper just needs to find a cell phone, and they’re hidden around Litchfield like Easter eggs.

Caputo is flipping out over the lost inmate, and blaming MCC because their computers fucked up/they hired guards who don’t know the inmates.

Caputo says he’ll go alone, and Danny thanks him.

Once again, sacrificing his own best interest to do the right thing.

Piper is on the hunt for a cell phone, and along the way she finds chicken wings, a blunt, and a shiv made out of Jolly Ranchers. She finally finds a cell phone and nabs it.

Piper is pissed that creating a panty cartel isn’t the turn-on she hoped it would be, and wants to know what happened to her sexy dangerous criminal girlfriend. Alex tells her to grow the fuck up.

Rumors are flying about Sophia, and her salon remains empty. Even Taystee ditched her to get a weave from her rival. Sophia calls everyone out for being transphobic, and admits that the worst part of being a woman is all the catty backstabbing drama. She’s not wrong.

Meanwhile, Daya is suffering back pain from being pregnant for three years. Maria is massaging her and helping her, because she gave birth in prison too. However, when she finds out that Daya is giving up the baby, she freaks the fuck out and screams at her. After all, she can’t even see her daughter, and Daya is willingly giving her own up?
