Episode Info

Alvarez (Kirk Acevedo) finds out who raped Glynn's (Ernie Hudson) daughter, and another inmate, Richie Hanlon (Jordan Lage) overhears him talking about it. Hanlon tells Father Mukada (B.D. Wong), who tells Glynn. But Alvarez, angry over Glynn's mistreatment of him, isn't talking, and Glynn has to be restrained to keep from beating Alvarez. Peter Schibetta (Eddie Malavarca) offers to get the information, but Glynn turns him down, saying, "I don't want to owe you any more favors." A nervous Diane Wittlesey (Edie Falco) returns to Em City for the first time since the riot. McManus (Terry Kinney) rejects her offer to take him out to dinner. McManus' efforts to teach Wangler (J.D. Williams) how to read are disrupted by Adebisi (Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje), who takes away Wangler's books and threatens the boy. Sister Peter Marie (Rita Moreno) is drawn to a demented older inmate, Giles (Austin Pendleton), who keeps repeating her name. Hill (Harold Perrineau) learns that the judge at his trial was arrested for taking bribes, and Said (Eamonn Walker) offers to help him get the verdict overturned. Surgery is scheduled for O'Reily (Dean Winters), who has breast cancer. His brain-damaged brother, Cyril (Scott William Winters of Good Will Hunting, who is Dean Winters' real-life brother) comes to visit him before his operation. O'Reily lets Dr. Nathan (Lauren Velez) know how grateful he is for all her help. Schillinger (J.K. Simmons) gets a visit from his lawyer (Dylan Baker of Happiness) who tells him he's facing another ten years in prison. Schillinger tells his cohorts in the Aryan Brotherhood that they need to kill someone, so they'll be respected again. He also plans to kill Beecher (Lee Tergesen), "but first," he says, "we make him suffer." Shirley Bellinger (Kathryn Erbe), who drowned her own daughter, arrives on death row.
