Alex goes to take a shower and finds Nicky standing there. They have a heart to heart about the importance of change. Then they go outside and get makeovers from Flaca and Maritza.
The guards are out of the bubble. They are now the inmates in Crazy Eye’s bunk to help her structure. Frieda’s crowd is playing cornhole. The coffee shop has an open mic. Someone sings and there is poetry but Pidge wins with her impressions of the other inmates.
