EPISODE:

Episode Info

Hill (Harold Perrineau Jr.) is still in bad shape, and he won't tell McManus (Terry Kinney) who sold him the heroin. He does say it wasn't the Sicilians, and McManus passes that info along to Redding (Anthony Chisholm). Poet (MuMs) gets Busmalis (Tom Mardirosian) to lie to Redding again, this time blaming the Latinos. Redding confronts Morales (David Zayas) about it and they fight. Cyril (Scott William Winters) is sentenced to death. O'Reily (Dean Winters) doesn't want to appeal. He's ready for Cyril to die, despite pleas from Suzanne Fitzgerald (Betty Buckley) and Father Meehan (Malachy McCourt). Cyril's legal team decides to take their case to the press. O'Reily arranges for the CO's to carry out his revenge on Jia (Michael Delmare). Penders (John Lurie) orders the guide dog he's training to attack a guard who gets rough with him. Alvarez (Kirk Acevedo) does a great job training his guide dog, and is gratified when Rivera (Nelson Vasquez) agrees to take the dog. After McManus unsuccessfully tries to find a bone marrow donor for Rebadow's (George Morfogen) grandson among the prisoners, Rebadow says God tells him to try a faith healer. He's approached by another prisoner, Whitworth (Ben Vereen), with information. Glynn (Ernie Hudson) finds another witness against Kirk (Sean Dugan). Robson (R.E. Rodgers) tells Schillinger (J.K. Simmons) that his gum tissue donor might have been black. Robson attacks the prison dentist, Faraj (Aasif Mandvi), who manages to get away, leaving Oz for good, but not before letting everyone know that Robson is no longer "pure." Robson is kicked out of the Brotherhood. Said (Eamonn Walker) tells Beecher (Lee Tergesen) to atone for what he did to Guenzel (Mike Doyle) by avoiding Keller (Christopher Meloni) forever. The Aryans decide that Guenzel has become a risk to them, and take action.
