Piscatella has Red, Piper, Alex and others tied up in a room, where he uses a knife to cut off Red's hair. Piper gets the duct tape off her mouth and yells for help, which is heard by Gina, who is holed up playing cards in Frieda's basement "bunker" with Yoga Jones, Anita and others. The entrance to the room they are in leads to where Piscatella is. Gloria tries to free the prison guards but is interrupted. Maureen, who has still not recovered from the beating, is found delirious in the bathroom by Suzanne, who takes her to the infirmary. Suzanne, by now in a psychotic state, finds Humphries dead. Gina lures Piscatella into the basement, where Frieda knocks him out with a homemade poison dart. 
 
Flashback: At his earlier job as CO in a male prison, Piscatella, then soft at heart, and inmate Driscoll were having an affair. Driscoll is supportive and loving of Piscatella, whose mother had hoped to "fix" him. Another inmate, Resado, spies on them together in the kitchen, and he and other inmates beat and rape Driscoll in a bathroom. Piscatella later handcuffs Resado to the shower and leaves him under scalding hot water to die.
