The FBI has Larry matched with 1 of the bodies of a dead girl but to prove or have a solid girl, they need to be able to match him with another.
What did Episode 3 Focus on?
Jimmy had tried to talk to Larry on numerous occasions but Larry did not reciprocate and in order to get him to talk, Jimmy’s efforts were getting shot down but he was able to get Larry’s respect when he stood up for him on the TV Room when he and some other inmates were watching “America’s Most Wanted”.
Larry, after that incident, feels comfortable talking to Jimmy and they talk, in the library and are also allowed to go with Larry to the boiler room where Larry works where they exchange a conversation about women’s genitals and we see Larry getting comfortable with Jimmy.
