Gloria comes racing into Querns's office to deliver the news, and she's forced to admit that whatever that powder may contain, it's way beyond her expertise. She recommends calling the state bio-terrorism unit, and also calls for an immediate evacuation of the entire prison. ["[Contrivance] now hath made his masterpiece! Most sacrilegious murder hath broke open the Lord's anointed temple, and stole thence the life o' the building!" -- Macbeth (Act II, Scene iii)]Alarms start blaring everywhere, and over in Em City, McManus and Murphy are trying to coordinate the prisoners' departure. "All I know is that the move is temporary," says McManus. "We'll be back someday." Yeah. I wouldn't bet on that one, Timbo. We get more shots of everyone from the staff to the prisoners in the hospital ward being evacuated from the building, and then we finally find ourselves on a bus where all of our favorite inmates are looking pensive and worried. Well, all of them except for Beecher, because he's too busy enjoying a private little smile at the thought of Chris Keller's last great "fuck you." The buses form a line and slowly start pulling out of the parking lot, and for what I believe is the first time ever, the camera pulls back to reveal a full-on exterior shot of the great and terrible Oswald State Correctional Facility. Farewell, Oswald. That light at the end of the tunnel means your hallways need never be darkened again.
