After the break, Sister Jude is leading the guards down to the women's ward to conduct a random inspection. Lana looks alarmed; Grace looks bored; Shelley, as ever, looks horny. The guards find food in Pepper's room and Sister Jude asks her why they don't allow food in the rooms. "RATS!" Pepper yelps, and Sister Jude "playfully" knocks her on her misshapen head, thus completing this week's Required Pepper Content. Requiring attention, Shelley pipes up that she's got a cucumber in her room, but it's not for eating. That seems like an awful waste of a cucumber, but OHHHHH. Jude instructs the guard to check Lana's pillowcase and he finds a piece of paper, upon which Lana has written notes about her mistreatment and other things she's witnessed at Briarcliff. Including, but not limited to her being denied a phone call out. "Who would you like to call?" Sister Jude taunts. "The American Civil Lesbians Union?" Cool burn, Sister. Lana's still holding on to some pride, as she defiantly tells Sister Jude that she's going to her editor with one hell of a story, with or without her notes. "I have an excellent memory," she calls after Sister Jude as she exits. Sister Jude says we'll have to see about that.
Sister Jude then goes to visit Dr. Arden, and they have a lovely little passive-aggressive conversation about the problem Lana poses. Sister Jude says she believes that it's Lana's troubling memories that are impeding her true repentance. Dr. Arden doesn't buy that hogwash for a second, but he's not going to object too much when what Sister Jude is asking of him is that he recommend electroshock therapy. There's some runaround about how Sister Jude once objected to the practice as barbaric but she bullshits about how she prayed on it or some such nonsense. The point is that you know something is truly evil and fucked up when both Dr. Arden and Sister Jude want to do it.
