We then whisk several hundred miles to the east, all the better to go to the governor's mansion. An angry-looking Governor Dad is being told by his advisors, "The best thing you can do is do nothing." Governor Dad testily says, "That's how I'm going to get confirmed as vice president by the U.S. Senate? I'm going to do nothing." A second aide replies unctuously, "It shows you can do the job." Then they all pause for a good laugh while they contemplate the possibilities of tossing lucrative contracts to their corporate cronies, spearheading disastrous foreign policy, and shooting their friends in the face during duck hunts. Governor Dad's phone rings. He checks it and notes, "It's my daughter." So then, of course, he doesn't answer it. The older of the two aides gets a look on his face like someone just passed gas -- loudly. The younger aide says, "Sir, we need to talk about your daughter... the media is all over this Fox River situation, we think it would be best if you could distance yourself from this --" "If I hear this one more time... I paid her bail, I walked away!" Governor Dad replies angrily. It's evident now that he would have preferred a different course of action. He walks off to collect himself, leaving the cell phone on the table as collateral.
We then cut to Dr. Sara leaving a very sweet and heartfelt message for Governor Dad: "Hey, Dad, it's me. When you get a chance, I really need to talk to you about some things. Actually, a lot of things. The most important one is that, um, I owe you an apology. I realize that, uh, that I've made things difficult for you lately, and I want to take responsibility for that." The doorbell rings, so she wraps up her phone message and opens the door to Kellerman, who's now totally her new gay best friend with the "Hii-yiiiii, I know I'm early but I brought dinner?"
Meanwhile, C-Note is still riding that train. He finally asks the lady next to him if he can check his e-mail. She's all, "Not at all," and he purrs, "You're so kind." Not that it would have made much sense for him to pull this act in Fox River or anything, but wow, is it a shift from his usual M.O. The lady hands over her laptop, and C-Note quickly logs into a U.S. Army site (the screen says "Signal Corps." So what the show's saying here is that guys who are dishonorably discharged aren't barred from sensitive security systems? Anyway, C-Note enters the "K&K ranch," quickly gets a set of mapped coordinates -- along with the news that the ranch is zoned for residential and commercial development -- and then everything goes pear-shaped. The ticket-taker comes back because he's double-checked C-Note's story, and while C-Note's smooth talking worked on the lady next to him, the conductor takes a dimmer view of being lied to. C-Note pulls the "Come on, brother" card and the conductor's all, "Oh, I don't think so. Officers! Sit with this man until the authorities meet him at the next stop." C-Note's all, "Oh, I don't think so," and turns to run down the train. He soon concludes that he'll have to jump off in a very dramatic fashion. The camera zooms in on him plunging into a conveniently deep river below.
