I don't understand why he has to resign from being a volunteer at the prison. Is Caputo no longer allowed to have any job involving the prison because of the accusation? And I thought he didn't fire her, so wtf? Sure, Caputo wasn't great,he was an asshole many times. but i'm getting the vibe that the writers want us to think of all the "good men" who are getting "unfairly swept up" in the MeToo movement and how we have to feel sorry for them, when really there are so many realy awful men out there who are still getting away with such behavior.
Well, Piper hasn't cheated, yet at least.
So who was the baby that Larry and Polly were caring for? I thought that was already their baby.
I agree that Piper isn't perfect, but her life isn't all that great. She can't get a real good job because no one outside of family would hire her due to prison. Even with her dad, she's probably not getting paid much more than minimum wage, maybe $15 an hour. And with her prior job, she wasn't just running off whenever she wanted, she asked her boss for one day off and agreed to pick up another co-worker's shift in exchange, and yes in addition to the afternoon off for the PO (which she can't miss).
As pointed out above, she does have some significant expenses with her PO, she's not allowed to do many things, like stay out past 10:00 p.m. or be around/drink alcohol. She now has to go to NA meetings. The lunch montage shows that she doesn't have a lot of extra money (has to brown bag lunch all the time), and she is not living 'rent free', her sister in law is charging her rent because the room could be rented out on air B&B. and her sister in law has other fairly strict rules Piper has to follow to continue living there.
True, her actions in taking the tequila and cookie from her co-workers was bad and entitled. and she apologized.
I noticed Piper's dad had surveillance in the kitchen. I thought he might also have surveillance in the offices, so he knows all too well that sometimes his employees knock off early when he has to leave in the afternoons.
