The A-Team heads over to Guy's old place. When Rebecca makes a remark about how small it is, Doc says guards paid $28 a month to live there. The living arrangements weren't part of the deal? That stinks. "What do you know about Hastings?" Hauser asks Doc. Doc wheels around on him and shouts, "What do you know about Hastings? You've had 50 years to bone up on this crap! You should be an even bigger expert than me!" Or maybe he just politely explains that Guy was in the Navy and came to Alcatraz in 1957. The "official" story is that he and eight other guards died in a chemical spill in 1963. "I wrote about him in one of my books," Doc says, "which I guess makes me a fraud." No, it doesn't. Rebecca notices the blood by the baseboard and pries it open. An empty clip is inside. "That means he's got a gun," she says. "Question is, what's he gonna do with it?" Hauser asks. Rebecca's stumped for ideas on how to find him. It's not like he's one of the prisoners who has a criminal pattern they can use. Doc points out the height markings by the door and suggests they look up Guy's daughter Annie.
Doc and Rebecca drop by Annie's house under the guise of writing a new book about Alcatraz. She invites them inside and tells them what an amazing place Alcatraz was. She has memories of climbing on her dad "like he was furniture." She tearfully recalls being told he had died in an accident on the island. They sent her his belongings, but never told her or her mother what happened. Doc asks to borrow her dad's stuff and she agrees.
Flashback. Guy takes the trainees on a tour. "Welcome to the mess hall, aptly dubbed the gas chamber," he says, explaining that there are 14 teargas canisters in the ceiling. Also, they serve beans with every meal. As the inmates make their way through the chow line, Guy explains that the mess hall is the most dangerous place in the prison. Ray notices Tommy nearby. Tommy notices him, too. Ray smiles, but Tommy flies into a rage and beats Ray upside the head with his lunch tray. Ray goes down. Tommy pounces on him and whispers, "You shouldn't have come here."
Ray's Bar, present day. Ray takes the trash outside, telling his bartender he'll be right back. As he's dealing with the dumpster, he hears a gun cocking behind him. "Don't move," a voice says. He turns slowly towards his would-be attacker and frowns as he recognizes him. "Guy?" Guy beats him upside the head with his gun.
Flashback to the infirmary. Dr. Beau stitches up young Ray's head wound. Warden James and Deputy Tiller come by for a look and question why Tommy Madsen went after Ray. Tiller seems suspicious about the whole thing, thinking they must know each other. Warden James points out that Alcatraz is full of murderers and the like. An inmate turning violent isn't exactly surprising, but Tiller suspects that Ray is there to break Tommy out of prison. He wants Ray gone. James leaves the decision up to Guy: "Shall we pull Archer close to our teat, or send him on his merry way?" What a visual! Guy vouches for Ray.
