Later, Jude ascends the staircase with Pepper and warns her of the dark clouds rolling in. She's going to be lucky to get out of here once the Monsignor's orders come through. Pepper cautions her not to put too much stock into Howard's promises. Jude assures her that she looked into his eyes and believed him. Pepper: "There's nothing there." Jude looks down from the landing at the influx of new patients. More souls to take care of. The irony is obvious but not un-poignant: Sister Jude has finally lived up to her calling to take care of the sick and tormented. As she looks down, Alma Walker looks up at her. A new patient. A new soul that needs saving.
Later on, Jude's heading back to her room, chatting amiably with Jorge the orderly, promising to pray for his mother's speedy recovery from such-and-such. The important thing here is that Jorge is played by Andrea's husband from Beverly Hills, 90210. And that this is his only line in the episode. Sad day for a proud teen drama. Anyway, Jude gets let into her room only to find Prisoner Conroy in there, greeting her with a husky, "Hello, gorgeous. I'm on top." Bunk beds, see. Jorge tells Jude that everybody has to double up now and shuts the door. Jude still thinks this is the Angel going under deep cover and so continues to rail that she doesn't want her here. But Prisoner Conroy is on some lady-prison power trip, claiming everything in the room -- including Jude -- hers. She backs Jude into the corner, making sexual advances in her gutter voice and it's all so unsettling, but it's also kind of brilliant that for two seasons now, we've had this buzzy, brilliant TV show that has featured two women circling 60 facing off the kind of pitched dramatic battles of will that are almost always reserved for men. Jude tells Conroy to stay away from her. She's maybe now coming around to the idea that this isn't the Angel but still someone to be wary of.
