Nicky and officer Luscheck are seen sharing an unusual staff-inmate relationship. In one episode, Nicky Nichols and Joel Luscheck are seen sitting outside, Nicky smoking a cigarette she got from Vee and her crew. Luscheck doesn't confiscate this cigarette, he just sits and talks to her. Later on in Season 3, Nicky asks Luscheck to help her sell some heroin. Luscheck scares Nicky by threatening to take her to Caputo and expose her, but then laughs and reveals it was a joke, and of course he will help sell the heroin.
Near the end of Season 3, the meth-heads tip off a CO that someone in electrical has heroin. Caputo searches and finds a aingle pack of heroin under Luscheck's desk, but he throws his heroin-dealing partner under the bus and lands her in SHU after labelling her as the .untrustworthy "junkie". While nobody had heard from or of Nicky, Luscheck reveals in Season 4 to Judy King that he feels bad even though he "normally does not give a shit".
