After a shot of the One World Conspiracy HQ from the outside (it's shiny -- shiny enough to reflect scrutiny of the black deeds planned therein), we go to the elevator leading into Von Baldy's office. Although Von Baldy is surrounded by four pissed-off, gun-wielding men, he still manages to sound bored and irritated when he tells a minor henchman, "Put away the gun; everything's under control." Everyone heads into General Von Baldy's office, and Mahone closes the door against the henchman.
Michael quickly calls Dr. Sara and tells her, "We got it." There's a little more blah-blah-blah, but I'm now totally distracted by his shiny new backpack, because it is so not the one he was using in the last episode. What happened? We'll never know. Michael sits down at General Von Baldy's desk, and he rolls his eyes a little at such brazen effrontery. Michael then monkeys with Scylla a little, just seeing what happens when he lifts a flap or slides back a door, then he takes a pen from Von Baldy's desk set and begins writing a list. Mahone decides to break the awkward silence with "Is that the desk you sat at when you told Wyatt to kill my son?" Von Baldy rolls his eyes, but before he can answer, Michael says calmly, "Don't worry, Alex. He won't be giving any more orders after today." Then Michael resumes writing. General Von Baldy starts in with the "You'll never get away, you know" speech, but Michael keeps on writing, and Sucre helps himself to a drink at the wet bar in the back of the office. We then get a shot of the One World Conspiracy HQ going into total lockdown, with goons swarming as angrily as bees.
Then we go to another chaotic office scene: T-Bag waving his machine gun around the terrified hostages at GATE. Trisha sees this, and sneaks over to unlock the office and crawl inside. She shushes the one employee who sees her. T-Bag and Gretchen continue intimidating the hostages, and T-Bag leans in to comment, "There's no way this is going to end well. We should get out of here." Gretchen asks, "Don't you think it's worth it to wait ten minutes for $125 million? Suck it up." T-Bag is left wearing the same expression we used to see on Whistler's face: The things I do to keep my cool around this woman.
Meanwhile, a lead goon is busy coordinating security efforts at One World Conspiracy HQ. A little late on that, aren't you, buddy? Inside the office, Linc holds up Scylla and comments, "All that design just to hold some names and reports." General Von Baldy says, "Names and reports? Is that information from the government, or your father?" Linc warns him, "Careful ..." General Von Baldy directs Linc's attention to the top right-hand drawer, where he just happens to have a candid snap of himself standing next to Aldo Burrows. "I pulled it when your names came up," he says. We flash back to season one, where Aldo explained why he checked out on his family, and in the present, Von Baldy explains, "I knew your father since before you were born. You do know he worked for [the One World Conspiracy]." Linc sighs that Aldo was a data analyst -- hands up, all of you who suspect that Linc has no bloomin' clue what a data analyst does -- and General Von Baldy messes with Lincoln's mind by harrumphing about how Aldo was probably lying to his kids. We see Michael rolling his eyes over this, and Lincoln is doing a good job at remaining impassive until General Von Baldy says, "There's so much you don't know about [the One World Conspiracy], about Scylla, about your dad, about your mother." Nobody talks about Lincoln's mom and gets away with it! Mahone steps in, and everyone goes back to glaring at one another.
