Pete's office. Wow, Adebisi looks different with hair. She tells him that she's releasing him from the ward. He asks if she thinks he's ready, and she tells him that she's been steadily reducing his dosage of Xanax (which was completely her decision, I'm sure) and he hasn't exhibited any violent behavior, so yes, she thinks he is in fact ready. Since we're going through all sorts of prescription drugs in this episode, Pete, perhaps you could find one that would make your hair a little less unfortunate. I think Dr. Eyebrows would even approve it, for general humanitarian reasons. McManus, who apparently has been there the whole time, says the question is whether Adebisi should come back to Em City, and given that he did absolutely nothing wrong in the immediate leadup to his going around the bend, I don't see why not, other than that making a big deal about it makes McManus feel self-important, and look, if you run a sentence on long enough, you can always answer your own question. Adebisi says he would like to come back, but McManus notes that plenty of the people in there have issues with him, and while I will concede that point, I don't think I buy that Adebisi would be safer anywhere else in Oz, so ultimately, I reject McManus's argument. Stop the presses. Adebisi says he'll apologize to everyone he's hurt, starting with McManus. He turns his head toward the camera and says he's sorry, and I don't think I've said enough how good an actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje is -- that look was ambiguous enough to be positively Schillingerian. McManus accepts the apology.
Em City. Adebisi returns. Ryan regards him appraisingly, perhaps wondering whether the new hair makes him sexier. Adebisi steels himself and approaches Nappa, who's getting a haircut right in the middle of the main area. Give me a fucking break, here. Adebisi: "I thought the road to my salvation was Africa. But there's nothing pure in Africa. It's backwards, diseased, corrupt. I was dancing in circles. I don't want to live in a hut. By taking Jara's life, you saved mine. Thank you." Nappa nods magnanimously, although he could simply be worried about setting Adebisi off in the vicinity of a pair of scissors. Adebisi asks for his job in the kitchen back. Nappa grants his request, on the condition that he not sell any tits. Adebisi: "Trust me. I'm done with drugs." Need I point out that the last time he said that, he went just the slightest bit squirrelly? He leaves, and Wangler appears immediately and gets up in Nappa's grill, saying that he can't possibly believe Adebisi. Nappa's all, maybe I do, maybe I don't, and in any case, you don't touch him until I give the word, you snivelling stocking-cap-wearing toady. When Wangler's gone, Pancamo asks why they don't just let Wangler kill Adebisi. Nappa breathes that Wangler's getting cocky, and intimates that Adebisi might be a more valuable partner down the road. Nappa, you might want to buy a slide rule or something, because that was a serious miscalculation.
