Director: Stuart McDonald — Writer: Rachel Bloom Aired: 10/12/18 — Season: 4 — Episode: — Nielsen ratings: Summary: Rebecca confronts the consequences of her guilty plea while an angry Nathaniel seeks solace in a retreat and Josh searches for answers.
Rebecca I hate to break it to you but you know whatever you do in here nothing is going to change the fact that you are a rich, white, lawyer lady who plead guilty for dramatic effect.
After entering her guilty plea, Rebecca Bunch is joined by Paula Proctor in the judges chambers along with the prosecutor. They are waiting for Rebeccas attorney Nathaniel to show but Darryl tells them he left and offers to step in as counsel. Over Darryl and Pauls objections Rebecca insists to the judge she be incarcerated refusing to change her plea. The judge sends Rebecca to the state penitentiary for six weeks hoping she will change her mind. While Rebecca is checked into prison, Nathaniel prepares for a "Deathwish Adventure." George is helping him prepare but feels Nathaniel should deal with his actual issue Rebecca instead of avoiding her by going on what’s essentially a camping trip.
Over at Home Base, Josh asks Hector why he’s been oblivious to so many things but ignores his friends suggestion about being too self absorbed. Instead Josh thinks his lack of awareness is a mental disorder. Days later at the prison, Rebecca's continuous self-castigation annoys her cell mate Nicky. Rebecca is pulled out of her despair when she finds out about a theater related prison activity. At that class Rebecca convinces the volunteer theater teacher Jasmine to let the inmates perform a musical number (♫ I'm in Love with a Wonderful Guy ♫). During visiting hours, Paula is concerned when Rebecca is more interested in her theater class then any updates on her case.
At a remote location Nathaniel starts his survivalist excursion while back in town Josh looks up psychological afflictions online. Meanwhile Rebecca learns her fellow inmates hated the song she insisted they perform. Rebecca suggests they do an original song based on their own personal stories (♫ What’s Your Story ♫). The other prisoners are appalled to learn unlike them Rebecca is in jail by choice. That night at Home Base, Josh tells Heather and Hector various mental disorders he has. He storms off when they tell him his research is faulty since it’s based on internet click bait quizzes. The next morning at Nathaniel's wilderness retreat George shows up fully equipped with camping provisions.
George notes the trip hasn’t really helped his boss much and learns it’s just another in a list of activities Nathaniel used to avoid emotional conflict.
