Storyline

Karen's "landlady" is becoming very controlling, and Melinda offers her a place if Jean gives permission. The inmates stage a hunger strike because of Doreen' s medical needs. Noeline finds out her daughter has been arrested for the robbery and explodes, initiating a standoff. While Bea goes to see Doreen, Monica and Noeline give in to the administration because they want to make parole. Fletcher has Bea put in solitary. Greg warns Melinda that an abortion could get her charged with perjury and return her to prison. Written by jeaneva
