Next, in McManus's office, we see White tuning out while Tim paces back and forth, delivering his speech about second chances, blah blah, one more time and it's back in solitary, sha na na na, Omar agrees solemnly. We cut to Omar doing drugs with Poet under the stairs, which seem to offer a mythological cloak of invisibility as long as prisoners remain underneath them. Or maybe I've seen Clash of the Titans too many times. White muses about being called a drug abuser and having to go to rehab. Poet tells him rehab is pretty cool since he gets to talk about himself a lot.
We slide on over to the last of TV time; the guys watch the news and learn that Alvarez has been captured and will be returning to Oswald. Morales's squinty friend says he'll kill Alvarez when he gets back. Morales asks why. "The motherfucker tried to kill me." Morales: "Yeah? Well, you tried to kill him, or did I get the story wrong?" Squinty regards him. Morales: "Let it go, Chico." Morales is always such a cool cat.
Alvarez is in a holding cell, telling Glynn how he almost made it to freedom and mentioning every geographical location that he can possibly say with an accent. Glynn orders the guard to take Alvarez to solitary since he doesn't know where any of those places are. We see Alvarez walked by Supreme, who says "hi" when they pass. When did he become so friendly? Once inside, Alvarez checks out his tiny gray digs; we pan around, and it's about the size of my apartment, minus the Ikea accents and cats. He leans his head back, thinking that the taste of freedom agreed with him so much more.
Cut to kitchen, where Squinty McSubplot tells Omar to put something in Miguel's food. He'll give Omar all the drugs he needs. Omar refuses: "I don't like you, man, I can't put my finger on it, maybe it's the way you look, you smell, something about you rubs me the wrong way." Squinty lazy-eyes, "You don't like me?" Leans in for emphasis: "Well, fuck you." He added a racial slur at the end, but y'all remember I won't recap those. Omar takes this in as he turns to the table in front of him, grabs a knife, and lunges at Squinty, sticking him somewhere in the middle, so I can't tell if it's a fatal stab. I highly doubt it. Squinty falls to the floor, bleeding, while the guards enter to take Omar right back to solitary. Just like Sars said last week -- no guards until a fight breaks out. Huh. Interesting. Stairs are safe, kitchen is too. Just don't fight. Got it. We see Omar being led back to solitary. He passes Supreme. "You back?" Omar: "Uh huh." Supreme: "Fuck, that's gotta be some kinda record!" Omar passes Alvarez: "You Alvarez?" "Yeah." "You OWE me, dawg." Alvarez knits his brow, probably wondering who could possibly be mad at him already.
