Orange Is the New Black - Linda Ferguson - Netflix

Linda Ferguson (played by Beth Dover) – An MCC employee that works in purchasing. During a meeting at MCC, she agrees with Caputo's suggestion of using veterans to replenish the shortage of guards because of the tax breaks the company would receive. She starts a relationship with Caputo, and frequently showed him that she is more concerned with financial breaks she can get for the company than the welfare of the prisoners, and later admits that she never stepped foot in a prison. During a night at Caputo's house, when Crystal came over to ask about Sophia's well-being, she forced her off of Caputo's property at gunpoint. At the end of the fourth season, she visits the prison for the first time when Caputo is about to do the press release announcing Poussey's death, and she is in the bathroom when the women start rioting. At the beginning of the fifth season, she becomes trapped in the prison with the rioting inmates that have taken the guards hostage. Piper and Alex find her and help her pose as a white-collar criminal to blend in. She becomes attached to Big Boo both as a love interest and for protection. During flashbacks, Linda was being hazed while trying to join a sorority by the sorority leader Meg. Later, during a party, Linda is outside with an intoxicated Meg while she is attempting to use the bathroom in freezing temperatures and decides to leave her alone. The following morning, Meg is found frozen to death, and after Linda lies about being the last person to see her alive, she takes over as leader of the sorority. Back in the prison, while sharing an intimate moment with Big Boo, she looks through Linda's phone and discovers pictures of her and Caputo. After a failed attempt to extort $5,000 from Linda for her silence, Big Boo outs her as not being an inmate and instead being the MCC employee responsible for their substandard living conditions for the purpose of budget cuts, resulting in the other prisoners throwing several objects at her. After the CERT officers breached the prison and bought the inmates outside, she attempted to announce herself as an undercover MCC employee. However, Big Boo immediately led other inmates into claiming to be MCC employees as well, resulting in Linda's declaration being dismissed as false. Following this, she is forced to board a bus with the other inmates.
