A flashback shows young Tasha—then referred to as Taystee—at a Black Adoption Festival, trying to find a permanent home. She meets a drug dealer who later becomes a mother figure to her. Eventually, Taystee starts working for her in the drug trade. Pennsatucky is revealed to have survived her fight with Piper, and is released from solitary after a month. She makes a deal with Healy about what she will say about the fight, and in exchange she gets her teeth fixed. Daya has been constipated for the past five days, and her mother and Mendoza compete to solve the problem. Red's commissary funds run short because she no longer controls the kitchen and cannot aid her outside criminal associates. During a visit from her son, it is revealed that she has a grandchild. Red is taken in by the older inmates. A mock job fair gives Taystee a chance to show off her business smarts with a Phillip Morris representative in a mock interview. She gets the mock job after Flaca puts her hand on the rep's knee during the interview. At the end of the episode, Taystee's mother figure shows up as a new inmate.
