The loud and obvious sound of retching emanating from inside the cell of Nathaniel Ginzberg indicates that he also had the utter misfortune of watching the previous mammary-heavy sequence. Meanwhile, Sister Pete tells Glynn that Gloria says Nat is on Death Row in more ways than one and is anxious to stop the suffering from AIDS. Sister Pete: "He asked me to ask you if it would be possible to move up the execution." Glynn responds that there is no legal precedent for being executed early ["well, except Gary Gilmore" -- Sars], and also, more surprisingly to him, "You're encouraging me to do this. Given your position against capital punishment." She thinks it would be a blessing for him to be Kevorkianed as quickly as possible, and plays Naughty Nun once more in telling Glynn, "My church is against a lot of things I'm not." She is clergy. Hear her roar.
Down in Em City, the inmates are watching that pokey-saturated news channel that reports only tidbits about their prison and people they know. All the time. What ever happened to sports, Lotto numbers, Mr. G with the weather and a Seinfeld rerun? Anyway, we learn that authorities are still hot on the non-trail of Alvarez, and then we learn that a judge accepted Ginzberg's request for an earlier execution. Over on Death Row, Sister Pete drops in to find Ginzberg dressed in full drag and make-up, and she tells him that he looks "like Susan Hayward." He can't steady his hands enough to polish his nails, however, and so he employs Sister Pete's help in this. She takes on the task bravely, but finds his hands shaking so badly that she advises him to lie down. He reports that tomorrow morning he has "a date with an angel," and Sister Pete gently lays the sweet transvestite down for a nap-like respite of some kind.
Because this is a show that "pushes the boundaries" and "takes chances," Pancamo is inexplicably sitting on the toilet and smoking a cigarette for the entirety of this scene. Well, why not? His podmate (am I supposed to know his name? 'Cause I don't. And I'm sorry) reports some season's past back story: "Ginzberg's dead tomorrow 'cause he killed Antonio Nappa. You wanted him to do it. Doesn't that bother you a little bit? He's dying because of you." Pancamo responds that they chose this life for themselves and have to deal with the consequences therein. But that practicality is simply not existential enough for Podmate, who volleys, "But Chucky. Are you afraid of dying?" He says no. Just then there is a loud crack on the pod window, and Claire bellows for Pancamo to get rid of the cigarette. She walks away. "Her," he says, "I'm afraid of." Ba-dumm.
