Outside, Keller agitatedly tells Mineo to take him to McManus. Metzger observes this and cottons onto Keller's intentions. He goes to see Beecher and asks what's going on. At Beecher's smug "I dunno," Metzger grabs him and hauls him out of his cell. In a darkened hallway, Metzger asks again. He gets his answer in the form of Beecher slashing him with his fingernails several times, finally finishing with the throat, Drusilla-style. Blood pours from Metzger's neck as he tries to use his walkie-talkie, but he can't speak, and he falls, dead. Good, meet riddance.
Diane goes to retrieve Schillinger, telling him that Glynn and McManus want to see him. She tells him about Keller's confession, like, nice to give him time to work out an alibi in his head, honey. Shouldn't that be part of C.O. training or something, or do they just assume common sense? Schillinger doesn't believe that Keller ratted him out, which is tantamount to admitting his guilt, but Diane says he did. Schillinger says that if he really did, he's dead, like, nice thing to say to a hack, but she informs him that Keller's in protective custody. And now that we've wrapped up another scene that was entirely for the audience's benefit, let's move on to...
...Hill telling us that truth is a powerful thing. Montage of Keller in protective custody, Schillinger getting put in the Hole, Metzger lying in a pool of blood, and Beecher clipping his bloody fingernails into the toilet. "It can right a wrong, or make a bad thing worse. But in Oz, the truth is, if the facts don't fit the truth, fuck the facts." Thank you for making the last monologue I recap not suck. Really.
Mineo calls lights out, presumably as the new Head Hack in Em City. The lights go out, and I am done. It's been fun, everyone. Now that I've been released, I think I'll go to a town called Everwood -- someone told me it was pretty once. And if I'm dead, I can hang out with Sue Ellen Mishkie. Later.
