Episode Info

Hill (Harold Perrineau) opens the episode with this epigram -- "Know thyself...That's the hardest thing any one of us could ever do." Sister Pete (Rita Moreno) has a sexual fantasy about Keller (Christopher Meloni), who skips a couple of sessions with her. Later, she confronts him about it, and realizes he's been using her to get to Beecher (Lee Tergesen). She confesses her lust to Father Mukada (B.D. Wong), and tells him she's going to stop being a nun. Alvarez (Kirk Acevedo) meets with Rivera (Nelson Vasquez) and his wife, Tina (Judy Reyes), but Rivera won't forgive him for his brutal attack. Mukada confronts Glynn (Ernie Hudson) with the information he's gotten about the death of Clayton Hughes' (Seth Gilliam) father, and Glynn blows up at him. Glynn later tells Hughes the whole story, and admits that it was his fault. McManus (Terry Kinney) asks Diane Wittlesey (Edie Falco) about getting back together, and she turns him down, but when Claire Howell (Kristin Rohde) taunts the pair, Diane kisses him passionately. Nappa (Mark Margolis) finishes his memoir, with help from Ginzburg (Charles Busch), who then gets the disc to Pancamo (Chuck Zito), who destroys it, and gets Ginzburg to get rid of Nappa. Adebisi (Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje) convinces Wangler (J.D. Williams) to accuse McManus of sexual harassment, and Adebisi goes to the media with the accusation. Said (Eamonn Walker) tells Beecher (Lee Tergesen) that he must ask for forgiveness from both Keller and Schillinger (J.K. Simmons). Keller accepts his apology, Schillinger responds to Beecher's attempt to "make things right" by trying to kill him. This episode was directed by Adam Bernstein, who directed the independent feature Six Ways to Sunday.
