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?
Glynn's office. The PP is just finishing up what seems like a congratulatory phone call from the President. He hangs up, and gloats to Glynn that it's been a good day. Glynn chuckles somewhat mirthlessly and asks the PP if he set the whole Walker thing up to make himself look better. The PP grins and says no, he merely took advantage of the situation. I actually believe him here -- his grin, to me, was a tacit acknowledgement that he would do something like that, but didn't in this particular case. He lights a cigarette as he says that he's been accused of so many things over the past year, but now that he's proved one of them false, it tinges all the others with doubt. One would hope that the other accusations came from people with a little more credibility than Walker, but I wouldn't stake anything important on it. The PP goes to leave, but then tosses his pack of cigarettes to Glynn and tells him to give them to Walker. "I owe him." Cut to Walker, looking a bit lost in Gen Pop. Hey, the smirk's gone! Gen Pop really must be no laughing matter.
Solitary. Giles. Outside his cell, Pete tells Glynn that Giles saw who killed her husband, but all he'll say now is "Aim." You know, when they spoon-feed me the AOL jokes, it's not as much fun. Glynn asks what's next, and Pete says she's going to talk to Hill, as before Em City opened, he was in the cell right next to Giles. Let's wrap this subplot up already, Sister Peter Marple -- we've got some gay sex to see. The consensual kind, that is. Cut to Pete asking Hill if Giles ever said anything about his life on the outside. Hill says that he tuned him out, because Giles went "on and on." Wow. I wish there were some cool internet way to express incoherent spluttering, because that's what I'm doing after that statement. I mean -- you are -- just -- I can't -- WHAT? Oy. Aren't you glad your recapper is so articulate? Pete asks about the day Giles killed his roommate, Ron Beebe. Flashback. Beebe tries to take some of Giles's very generically packaged toothpaste when Giles enters and catches him. Beebe punches him in the face. I bet Tom Fontana wears glasses, because the penalty for hitting a guy who wears them is death, as Giles stabs Beebe with a shank that looks like it was made from a toothbrush, which is pretty cool. Certainly a new way to fend off the Cavity Creeps. Hill says that he remembers that Giles was very conscientious about his teeth. Having a thought, Pete asks what brand he used. Hill: "Same as mine. Aim." Wow. Do they even make that anymore? And if they do, could they really afford product placement?
