Projecto-Hill tells us that you can escape from Oz through drugs and alcohol. It shouldn't surprise you, then, to learn that it's Beecher's turn in the glass cage. He tries to take a drink of liquor, but his bottle's empty. I snicker as I slurp whiskey through a straw.
Flashback to the Beecher/Keller kiss, and then Keller gets out of the Hole. In a nice touch, Alvarez is still screaming. Beecher's lying around like a drunken slob when he sees Keller walking back into Em City. Beecher gets up excitedly, and when Keller enters, puts his hands on Keller's shoulders and asks for a kiss. Keller looks down all, "And you're touching me because...?" and observes that Beecher's drunk. Beecher's all, duh, and suggests that they consummate their relationship, if you know what I mean, and I think you do, judging from the THUNK of jaws hitting floors at the prospect. Keller's in George W. mode, however, as he disappoints a nation, saying that not only is he not interested in dancing the horizontal mambo with Beecher, he doesn't even want to be in the same room as him. He walks out, and Beecher trails after him like a pathetic lovesick puppy. He tries to touch Keller again, who jerks away. Beecher apologizes for whatever he did, but Keller tells him that he did some thinking in the Hole, and he decided that the two of them are due on the now o'clock train to Splitsville. Beecher, in a panic, tells Keller that he can stop drinking, and grabs his arm again. Keller looks down again, and then shoves Beecher across the room, much to the delight of various onlookers. Keller walks into the shower as Beecher leaves, crying. Everyone laughs at him except for Ryan and Cyril. And as upset as Beecher is, he's going to learn soon that there's always a much lower place to go. Unless you're Brad Kern. Later, Keller plays a board game as Beecher watches forlornly. Beecher buys more liquor from Guerra, who openly laughs at him. Harsh. In their pod, Keller gets into bed as Beecher undresses miserably. Keller looks at him impassively before turning over, and Beecher climbs into bed for a nice cry.
