They were very clear that they were NOT expecting her.
My impression was that guard on duty didn't realize they were expecting her, but eventually found the paperwork. And yes, typically someone guilty of a minor non-violent crime that is sentenced to one of the low security prisons, and is also not to be believed to be a threat to society other than their already committed crime is often given a date to surrender themselves into prison. I believe Martha Stewart is a good example of this.
I unfortunately haven't seen the show, so I am not sure of the context.
But how it generally works with surrendering can fall into a couple of different categories. You can surrender to police because they have an arrest warrant out for you for a crime. You can surrender to police or sheriffs because you fail to report to Court for a hearing date (skipping bail).
In the context of the show, it sounds like the person was sentenced to a prison sentence and given a date to surrender herself to custody. This is common in, for instance, weekend DUI sentences (where someone is ordered to serve three months in prison to be served on weekends only). It's also (more rarely) associated with people who get relatively lengthy sentences and are allowed to take care of affairs at home for a couple of weeks before reporting to prison (they surrender either there, or surrender in the Courtroom). The main character in 25th Hour (a great movie) is in that situation. Generally the person has to be not an immediate threat to himself or others, so it is more common for drug cases than those cases involving victims (but that is not how it works all the time).
I've had people fail to surrender and it is nothing short of an unmitigated disaster for them. They face having the original sentence rescinded or revoked and a new, much more lengthy sentence imposed. Sometimes in absentia.
I'll see what I can read about this episode to get a better context.
I assume that everyone has noticed that every time Piper is on the phone the lady on the other phone is the same crying person.
I'd watch anything with Lauren Lapkus in it.
Yes, I have noticed that.
I just started watching this tonight. Enjoying it and very glad it's able to be watched all at once. I love binge watching.
Loved when Piper told boyfriend not to watch Mad Men. He started watching it, then turn the picture frame down kept on watching. Men. Geesh.
I'm up to episode 8 now - really liking this show.
This spoiler is show in general....
I can't decide if Healy is a decent person or creepy.
I just finished the series. It was pretty good. I hope they make a second season.
Yael Stone's (Morello) accent is so bizarre that it's a little off putting.
I came here to post that in episode 8 phone lady was gone and right as the thread opened she was back.
Netflix ordered a second season before the first one premiered.
?? While not common it's certainly an accent I've heard plenty of times before.
The Michael Jackson dancing was really funny
Piper at times looks like a typical WASP, at times like a young girl, sometimes hot, sometimes not. It's pretty well done overall.
Laura Prepon looks way older than she really is to me. Probably those harsh eyelashes.
Since Netflix has flexibility I wonder why the make 13 episodes series that are 45-60 minute each.
Oh and I really like the theme song.
It is a thick New York accent. Been around for a long time. Listen to Marisa Tomei in "My Cousin Vinny", for example.
I thought that's what it was but being a Brit wasn't willing to commit
I like the theme song, but when watching several episodes at once, I don't like watching the opening every time.
I think I'm up to episode 10 or so??? And after episode 8, I think I figured out how I feel about Healy
I'm at 9 but regarding Healy.
I don't think your earlier analysis was correct, I think he was a good guy but something happened regarding the Newspaper story or his wife that changed his outlook
I agree. There was an obvious 180 in his actions and attitude, expecially toward Piper, but I never felt like the reason was really fleshed out.
I'm pretty sure the reason was "lesbians"
sup scott? how u doin man?
love this show imo - definitely a fun watch
