Commercials. Let me be the first to tell y'all: there needs to be a moratorium on using "Baba O'Riley" as the music for anything for the next five years. I'm sorry, Cisco, but after the ABC fall season promo with it, the American Beauty ads with it, CSI: NY's credits with it, and the Oakland As using it to make us all excited about the Athletics' storied history, I'm afraid that song's all used up. Perhaps you can use "A Quick One While He's Away."
When we come back, Michael is busy dictating the terms of his participation to Bellick and Sucre: "You get your $5 million, you get Maricruz, and I get T-Bag," Bellick speaks for us all with "win, win, win."
Then we zip to Chicago, where it's soon made plain that the Windy City is giving Alexandria, Virginia a run for its money as the rocket docket. We're already on the third day of testimony in the Dr. Sara case; a voice-over tells us the prosecution is successfully pursuing the "'But he's so dreamy' is not an adequate justification" argument. We go to the courtroom, where the lawyers are dickering over whether or not the recording Michael and Lincoln made should be admitted into evidence. The prosecution argues that the tape's been discredited. Somewhere, Kellerman should be pleased that his handiwork is coming back to vex the woman who ironed his chest. I have to admit: I am one of those people who finds courtroom scenes to be tedious because they're all so much alike -- two people blah-blah-blahing at each other until the judge makes some decision that causes at least one lawyer to yelp in outrage. The only exception to this was in the movie The Toy Wife, wherein the smug lawyer played by Melvin Douglas actually shoots the defendant. Go look for the movie on TCM; it is truly one of those oldies but crazies that has to be seen to be believed.
Anyway, the upshot of the court scene: the tape's admitted. We all get to see Michael say that Dr. Sara had nothing to do with Team Escarpara's unscheduled departure. We also get to watch Dr. Sara make the gooney eyes at Michael's tape. Those two, I swear.
We then cut to a voiceover reciting news about the trial as the camera pans over an Army uniform. We see that it's Kellerman's, it's an Army Ranger uniform, and whatever he was doing, he was apparently very, very good at it. We see Kellerman polishing his academy ring. He then lines up the honors he received while in uniform. It looks like he's got a Purple Heart, and a number of other award medals. We then see him begin to clean a gun. Kellerman, noooooooo!
