'60 Days In' Season 6 Episode 5: Arrogant footballer Dennis meets his match in the new wild card entry

Contains spoilers for Season 6 Episode 5 of '60 Days In'
Throughout this season, the male undercover inmates have been extremely unsuccessful in sticking to plan or doing what they were sent to do and last week, Dennis's arrogance almost put the whole operation at risk. So Sheriff Horton and Chief Peek brought in reinforcements in the form of Tony, a corrections officer from Fulton County jail.
This season on A&E's prison reality show '60 Days In', we've got our undercover inmates on sleuth mode in the Etowah County Detention Center in Alabama, one of the worst jails in the country. On the very first day in Intake, Jacob begs to go home followed by Matt, a couple of days later. The only people left inside the men's pod are football player Dennis and Alex, a student. Mind you, Matt was a former Marine and Jacob is a corrections officer - so clearly, this jail doesn't care how tough you may be.
Last week, Dennis almost put the program at risk after he decided that he is above the rules and moved to another unit with no cameras, called the land of "milk and honey" in terms of contraband. They pulled him out with a stern warning that if he doesn't behave he would be kicked out, but clearly Peek and Horton do not trust him and quite rightly so. They decided to bring in Tony - who is probably the toughest guy we've seen this season.
Intimidating, swarthy, strong and disciplined, Tony walks in and witnesses a violent fight in Intake. He is unfazed. Another fight breaks out inside and he still doesn't seem bothered at all. He even kicks out the cellmates who were doing drugs in their cell and tells them that he doesn't smoke it and neither will they in his room. Everyone quietly leaves.
Next week, he's seen talking to Dennis and he seems to doubt that Tony is on the show. One thing is clear, Tony has a presence and the inmates are scared of him. However, will he set Dennis right if Dennis gets in his way? Knowing them both, it's probably going to happen.
