Clayton is sitting at the control center of Em City when a disturbance breaks out. Clayton rushes over, and it's none other than Carlo from the visiting room, who quickly pins Clayton against the wall and starts choking him. The other hacks come running, and Carlo is quickly taken down and dragged off to the hole. McManus walks in and gives Clayton back the club that Carlo stole. Clayton tries to regain his composure. McManus asks Poet what that was about, and Poet says that Carlo was "mumbling some shit about his mother." The prisoners stare at Clayton, who asks them what they're looking at. I wish I didn't know how this storyline ends up, because it makes it a lot more poignant.
Some prisoner dances as the other prisoners beat on pots and chant. In the hole, Carlo shadow boxes furiously.
