Beecher returns to the Pod of Pain, where Schillinger confronts him about being high during the variety show. Beecher apologizes, but Schillinger says he's the one that's sorry, and gives Beecher a t-shirt to wear. When he puts it on, we see that there's a Confederate flag on it, an adopted symbol of white supremacists. Beecher tells him that one of the black men will kill him if he wears the shirt outside the pod, and Schillinger agrees, saying "there's a new kid in town," as he looks down at Ross. Beecher offers to move to another pod, but Schillinger denies that request and opens the door. "Goodbye, prag." That's what you think, Vern. Beecher, holding his hands over the flag, goes to see Ryan. Beecher asks what he should do, and Ryan gives him some PCP. Hey, it's a little unorthodox, but I think Ryan was right on the money here. Outside, we hear that the Pernicious Peewee's trial is starting. Beecher marches out of the Party Pod with his vision a little distorted. The camera floats up the stairs. Beecher gets to the top, and observes Ross and Schillinger talking in the Pod of Pain. With no hesitation, he picks up a chair, gets a running start, and smashes the window of the pod. Ross sees him coming and manages to turn away, but Schillinger doesn't, and the apparent result is a lot of glass in Schillinger's eye. You'd think I'd wince after recent developments on Buffy, but no. Beecher yells triumphantly, and then climbs up on the rail and hallucinates a stage dive before the guards pull him back. He lets fly a string of obscenities that almost put Nate and Brenda to shame as Schillinger, who has blood running freely out of his eye, yells for a doctor. The crowd in the main area loudly chants, "Beecher! Beecher!" Fucking awesome. I hope this scene isn't supposed to convey an anti-PCP message, because if so, it failed dramatically.
McManus and Sister Pete observe Beecher in the Hole. He's shirtless, sweaty, and screaming. In other words, he's me were I ever to wake up from a sex dream involving McManus. In the hospital, Gloria tells Vern to keep his hands away from his face, advice that I'm against, since his eye looks pretty fucking gross. It is an Evil Eye, after all. Gloria tells her team that she's not sure she can save the eye, and they need to get him to Benchley Memorial right away. I love Benchley Memorial -- it's where they send the show's regulars when they can't think of anywhere else to put them. Benchley Memorial: The poor man's England. Gloria bandages the eye as Schillinger grits that he's "gonna kill that motherfucker." That's a shitty thing to say, Vern. Spoiler!
