'60 Days In': Sheriff decides to bring in wild card inmate after Dennis puts operation at risk
Dennis, a former football quarterback, thinks he is above the rules and decides to move to a unit that is the 'milk and honey' in terms of contraband and it has no cameras either
The men have been faring worse than women in this season of '60 Days In' but this week, an inmate jeopardizes the whole operation, thanks to his arrogance. Dennis, a former football quarterback, decides that he is above the rules and decides to move to another unit — this is the "milk and honey" in terms of contraband and has no cameras.
The Etowah County Detention Center in Alabama is the jail for this season of the highly successful reality show. So far, two inmates have already left the show — Matt, a former marine and a fan of the show, and Jacob, who worked as a corrections officer. For now, Dennis is currently in the men's pod with Alex, a student who is a political science major.
Dennis has been called cocky right from the time he stepped into the briefing room on day one and the attitude has continued. Both Sheriff Horton and Chief Peek believe that he is trying to go his own way in the show and his actions in the latest episode may have sealed his fate.
Due to overcrowding, the officers look for inmates to volunteer to move to unit six. Dennis' inmate friends tell him that is the land of drugs and money and that it had very few rules, if any.
"It's the land of milk and honey," he tells Dennis, adding, "White boys pay you for protection."
While Dennis says that he wants to go in to expose the realities of the unit, when questioned by Peek and Horton, he sings a different tune. The two are worried because the unit is out of production's reach and has no cameras, which means Dennis, in his arrogance, could be jeopardizing his and Alex's lives. If anyone gets a hint of their actual identities, they would be in trouble.
When Dennis gets angry at the Sheriff, tempers flare. Horton threatens to kick him out of the program and says, "I do this for a living, don't try me."
"I will get my respect," Dennis says later, but he doesn't know that Peek and Horton have a new wild card entry coming in to save the mission. Intimidating, swarthy and disciplined, Toni is set to come into the prison next week. Will he show Dennis his place and make him fall in line? We will have to wait and watch.
'60 Days In' airs at 9/8c on Thursdays on A&E.
