Down in the infirmary, the nurse tells her she shouldn't mouth off to the guards. Olivia notes a body under a sheet nearby. "What guard did she piss off?" she asks. "Risa? She hung herself," says the nurse, and Olivia pretty much blows her cover with her reaction (and poor cover-up when the nurse asks if she knew Risa).
Ashley's less than thrilled to see Elliot at her mom's funeral. "I promised your mom I'd look out for you," he says, which he should realize isn't super-reassuring when they didn't do such a hot job of looking out for her mom. "My mother didn't kill herself. She'd never leave me like that," says Ashley. Elliot's skeptical, but Ashley got a letter from her this morning that was full of optimism.
ME Warner confirms it, since Risa's hyoid bone was broken, which even Elliot knows doesn't happen in a hanging. Warner says Risa was strangled and then strung up to make it look like a hanging. But the local ME won't reexamine, since the prison's in a poor town and Sealview's the biggest employer, and he doesn't want to make waves. "So what's to stop him from doing it again?" asks Elliot.
Well, there's Olivia, strolling through the exercise yard, absolutely stunned that a women's prison looks nothing like all-inclusive resorts at Costa Rica. Before long, she literally bumps into another inmate who notes that she's "jonesin'" and Olivia, I mean "Kat," says she just need to get straight. The other inmate, Shawna, says, "The only way you're gonna score is by flat-backin'." "Kat" seems OK with that, and Shawna suggests making her "merchandise" more attractive, like some other inmate who's cinched her top up under her chest. "Here come your buyers now," says Shawna. It's Fin and that other prison guard, chatting. "Feeling better today?" he asks her. "Peachy," says "Kat," who gets informed that the correct answer is, "Yes, thank you, CO." He also makes her apologize to Fin, aka Officer Johnson (hee -- "Johnson") for getting blood on his shoes. Eventually, she does. Then the other guard knocks over a rack of basketballs, and orders Olivia to pick them up. Conveniently, he strolls away so Fin can tell her that Risa's death wasn't a suicide. She tells him to check out his new best friend. "Done," says Fin, who strolls back over to his partner, who calls Olivia "sweet cheeks" as they swagger off.
The guy is Matthew Parker, Munch tells the crew, including Chester, who has finally shown up for a scene. He has no criminal record, but a couple of complaints from his wife before she became his ex. Dude's got sixteen subscriptions to hard-core porn sites. "Who needs that much smut?" asks Cragen, and Elliot says, "A guy who can't get it any other way unless he's raping inmates," because Elliot has to turn it into some kind of studliness contest. Parker's drifted from women's prison to women's prison, probably leaving each one before an inmate got up the nerve to report him. No one brings up how absolutely amazing it is that out of the four-hundred employees we were told worked at the prison, Fin managed to get partnered up with the guy they're looking for on his very first day.
