The women's pod at the Etowah County jail in Alabama is bustling with drama, but the men's pod refused to be left behind.

Dennis decided it was best to lay low for a while after he was given a talking to by Sheriff Horton and Chief Peek, but clearly, he is back to his old ways this week already. However, this time, he may actually be messing with the wrong person. 

Dennis's arrogance almost put the whole operation at risk as Sheriff Horton and Chief Peek brought in reinforcements in the form of Tony, a corrections officer from Fulton County jail.

Tony has established his presence at the facility by this week and it appears that he has no worries at all. Reminds us all of Dennis doesn't it? However, unlike Dennis, Tony takes in a white inmate named Justine under his wing.

He promises to protect him because the two of them claimed to "just click" over their love for family. But, we see another side to Tony after a fight breaks out in his and Justine's cell.

Their cellmate refused to shower for days and Justine begs him to go "wash his a**". When he refuses many times, Justine punches him, unable to take the stench. Tony, instead of fighting or even breaking it up, gets on his top bunk and watches Justine get beaten down, laughing. 

Justine confesses to the producers later that he was dishearted by Tony's actions because he was just as mad about the cellmate's hygiene. When he could have solved the problem, he chose to stay away.

Justine was seen with bruises and what looked like a broken hand. "I'm not your daddy," says Tony, casually, "the winner wins, the loser loses."

Now, Dennis, who is usually walking around shirtless and being the center of attention appears to notice all that was going on with Tony. "He's a tall, big guy. Nobody really messes around with him. Everybody fears Tony, but I'm not worried about Tony at all."

When the producers ask him why, he says, "I feel like he's a participant, I don't know why. I'll figure it out though." Knowing Dennis, he will probably confront Tony or sneak up on him and in that scenario, Dennis would have a different kind of problem.
