Staff meeting. Everyone crows about the scandal. Glynn says that the PP wants Walker to give interviews, and that he wants "full disclosure." And there's another mental image I didn't need ricocheting around my skull. McManus is floored: "Well, I'll be fucked." Hey, when does Officer Claire show up?
On Oz TV, the PP denies Walker's allegations, saying they're just the latest in a long line of accusations perpetrated by a scandal-hungry press, and adds that he's going to Oz to confront Walker. McManus congratulates Said on his coup. Is the enemy of my enemy my friend? Not in this case, I'd guess.
The PP holds court in the cafeteria. He distributes copies of his mandatory drug tests, which show that he's clean. He then asks for Walker to be brought in. Walker enters in shackles and jumpsuit, and I have to say, LL's acting technique of All Smirk, All The Time is making me long for the days of Rick Fox, and that's not a compliment. The PP mentions one of the dates on which Walker accused him of buying drugs, and produces documentation that he was at the White House at that time. Walker tries to say that it must have been one of his aides, but the aide he names was with the PP. Whoops, again. For someone who gets four aces every hand in poker, this guy isn't all that lucky. The PP also informs Walker that his cousin denied any knowledge of the alleged drug transactions, and soon, though his smirk remains as insouciant as ever, Walker admits that he lied. The ensuing pearl-clutching is hilarious. Why didn't the female reporters swoon dead away? A drug dealer and convicted felon shined one on. I've gotten bigger shocks from petting Sars's cats in dry weather.
In a classroom, Said tells Walker he doesn't understand why he lied. Simple: He did it to make a name for himself. It's called, doubly ironically in this particular situation, "street cred." I think you might have heard of it. McManus asks why, then, he went public, but he says that was all Said's doing, and if there was a chance he could end up getting out, it was worth a shot. Actually, I'd guess that his rep will suffer a lot for having been found out, but since he's probably not going to reappear after this episode, I'm not going to dwell on it. Walker tells a sob story about not having any visitors the last time he was in prison. Yeah, way to be a tough guy. Sheesh. Said leaves without a word, and Walker notes that he's "a little hostile." Shout-out? McManus tells him he's going to Gen Pop. Why not send him to England?
