Cafeteria. There's a long line for food, and the situation looks about as ugly as the last episode of Married By America. The kitchen workers are in the middle of a slowdown, and Schibetta looks annoyed as Ryan berates Wangler. Ryan then goes to the cage to spin a tale, telling Adebisi that the only reason Schibetta put Ryan in charge is to keep him and Adebisi at each other's throats. As he's talking, he rolls a thick towel over his hand, and then picks up a glass jar and breaks it. He rolls a can over the glass to grind it as he tells Adebisi that the two of them together can take over Schibetta's drug trade. He goes on that they have to act like enemies so no one will suspect anything. Adebisi opines that if they kill Schibetta, they're dead, but Ryan says they can put the ground glass in his food, which will cause a slow, painful, and untraceable death. Oh, Mickey, you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, hey Mickey! Adebisi, holding a piece of glass to Ryan's throat, calls Ryan a sick motherfucker, and Ryan gets the predictable-but-necessary reply: "Coming from you, that's a compliment." Indeed. Adebisi orders Wangler to get him Schibetta's food, and Ryan adds that they can knock off the slowdown, Adebisi agreeing. Ryan and Adebisi shake hands. I love it when a plan comes together. Especially if said plan will cause massive internal hemorrhaging.
In her office, Pete asks Ryan what he would do if he were free, and he responds that he would travel. London is beautiful this time of year, Ryan. He says he'd like to go to the Morogoro jungle, and invites Pete to go with him. That's a spin-off I would watch. I have a feeling Ryan would be like The Snake Whisperer. Pete eventually manages to change the subject to the fact that Ryan grew up in a tough neighborhood. She then opens the door, confusing me as to the purpose of the interview. Ryan tells Pete that he's got twelve years until he's up for parole, and he's going to make it out of Oz. I think of the finale and sigh.
