Wheel of Fortune


Episode Info

Said (Eamonn Walker) tells Glynn (Ernie Hudson) that Robson (R.E. Rodgers) murdered a young Muslim prisoner, but he has no evidence. Robson taunts White (Michael Wright), calling him Said's slave. When Said catches White passing drugs to another prisoner, he beats him badly, landing himself in the hole. Unable to get along with the other prisoners, White asks McManus (Terry Kinney, who also directed this episode) to bring Said back, but Said begs McManus to let him stay in the hole. "Either I find myself in this place, or I am lost forever," Said tells him. Pancamo (Chuck Zito) learns he has a staph infection, and his condition is worsening. Schillinger (J.K. Simmons) apologizes to Beecher (Lee Tergesen) for "abusing" him when he first came to Oz. But he also uses his new prag, Winthrop (Andy Powers), to pass along the info to Guenzel (Mike Doyle) that Beecher is gay, which the homophobic Guenzel can't handle. Schillinger has a plan to allow Beecher to see Keller (Christopher Meloni) if Beecher will turn Guenzel over to the Aryans. Rebadow (George Morfogen) learns that he picked the winning lottery numbers, but Officer Brass (Blake Robbins) vanishes with his ticket. McManus learns that Hill (Harold Perrineau Jr.) has a life-threatening illness caused in part by his return to heroin use. McManus accosts Redding (Anthony Chisholm) demanding to know where Hill got the drugs. Redding confronts Poet (MuMs), who denies giving the smack to Hill. Morales (David Zayas) learns about his late sister's marital woes from Father Mukada (B.D. Wong), and takes drastic action. O'Reilly (Dean Winters) calls his dysfunctional family together to try to save Cyril (Scott William Winters) from death row.
