Babes Behind Bars! (And Michael's Not One of Them)
And now, a Women Inmates In The Shower Scene. Dr. Sara is not among them. She's only hanging out in the general shower area. Then a blonde inmate pays off the guard, everyone -- including Dr. Sara's "family" -- quietly shuffles out, and Dr. Sara finally gets that being left alone in the general shower area does not mean that she's going to be getting some private time to relax and unwind. What she is getting instead is an attempted murder from Agatha. And Agatha, bless her, attempts, but she's a rotten knifeswoman, so Dr. Sara manages to elude her long enough for Gretchen to come out swinging. Gretchen then beats the tar out of Agatha and kills her by driving her head into one of the towel hooks that's screwed into the wall. Gretchen then sidles over to Dr. Sara and asks, "Are we friends now?" So long as Gretchen promises not to do that to her, Dr. Sara should say yes. But that's just my opinion. The guards come back in, legitimately shocked that a) an inmate is dead, and b) said inmate's name is not Sara Tancredi.
We then cut to one of the guards telling Daddy down in the SHU that Agatha Warren is dead. Daddy demands, "Who did that?" (Lori Petty's delivery, the way she mingles the grief and fury in her ridiculous accent, is wonderful.) The guard tells Daddy, "No-one's talking, but I hear it's those fish, Morgan and Tancredi." She walks off, leaving Daddy to howl, "No! No!"
Michael and Mahone meet the pilot, who also expresses his doubts about Michael's plan to jump out of a moving plan onto a very tiny target in the dark. Since Michael's got a long history of ignoring the worries of lesser mortals, he's got plenty of practice in exuding waves of cold indifference now. Mahone looks at the pilot all, "Now you know why I wear long sleeves, even in Florida." Then Mahone comes over and tries to dissuade Michael from the plan. Michael points out, "It's not just Sara's life at risk." That hits Mahone, Michael adds, "I know you [understand]. That's why I also know I can ask for your help." Mahone looks only a little guilty before asking, "Yeah. What do you need?" Michael needs this: "If I don't make it, I want you to make sure Sara and my brother get out of the country alive. I need to know they'll be okay. And I'll trust you'll do everything you can to make that happen." Michael hands over a DVD and a piece of paper to Mahone with "I trust you, Alex. Remember that." He walks off, leaving Mahone to marinate in guilt.
