Orange Is The New Black Season 3 Recap: Fake It Till You Make It

This episode of “Orange Is The New Black” Season 3, Episode 5 “ Fake It Till You Fake It Some More” is lighter than the rest of the episodes this season, but it maintains its impressive streak. Read below for the full recap.

Since Litchfield has been acquired by a new company, the warden was fired and the officers’ hours were cut in half. It led them losing trust on the company. As for the inmates, they were given new mattresses and bathroom doors. It sounds too good to be true and even Officer Wanda thinks that there’s something fishy about that.


Meanwhile, the inmates can’t be bothered with the new developments in prison. It because they are too preoccupied with the new job offer that pays $1 per hour, which in Litchfield that’s a high-paying job. However, they don’t know what kind of job it is and they need to pass a test first. So, the inmates test to qualify. Flaca was so excited until she learns that she has to take a test. During the test, she got stressed out and then we were taken back to memory lane involving Flaca’s story.

Flaca grew up with her Spanish mother who makes dresses with designer labels sewn onto them to make money. This gave Flaca an idea to do the same thing, but she didn’t sell dresses but instead sold acid at her high school. Things were successful at first until one student jumped off the roof after taking her acid and she was sent to jail.

In other news, Red heed the advice of Piper on how to make her look lighter. Piper helped her and then she pretended to run into Officer Healy that made us think that she’s into Healy. However, it turns out that Healy doesn’t share the same feelings as hers and she’s only flirting with Red so she could get her job back at the kitchen.

Cesar visited Daya at prison. He told her that he wasn’t able to find Bennett so Daya asked if he would care for her baby, but Cesar said that he has too much going on. So then Daya went to meet Pornstache’s mom and told her that she can have the baby. This surprised Mrs. Powell and said that she didn’t expect that she is that quick to give up on her child. Daya said that the baby is a mistake and she doesn’t want it.

Alex noticed someone in prison that she hasn’t seen before and she thought Kubra sent someone to kill her. The list of the ladies who got the job were posted and it includes Flaca. It turns out that the company didn’t even take a look at the tests but chose randomly instead and the job? They are going to sew underwear for a company called Whispers.
