Babes Behind Bars! (And Michael's Not One of Them)
Dr. Sara's about to head inside, but she's waylaid by Gretchen, courtesy of a hand to the throat. Gretchen would like to know what Lincoln's doing over by the fence. As Dr. Sara takes her sweet time in not answering, Daddy comes out and sees Dr. Sara pinned up against the wall and Gretchen hemming her in. Ooh, this is the kind of awkward social misunderstanding none of the etiquette books ever cover. Daddy decides that she's not getting into this -- it's an effective way to demonstrate what belonging to a family can do -- and Gretchen points out to Dr. Sara that she's alone, so she might as well answer. Fortunately, a guard comes along then, so Dr. Sara's spared from saying anything.
Over on the men's side, it's dinnertime. T-Bag has a brief conversation with a con: the con's wife is on the ladies' side of the prison, and she's willing to undercut the $100K bounty on Dr. Sara's head by a substantial amount. T-Bag promises to pass the offer along to Von Baldy. Alas, their mutual hostility gets in the way.
The badly beaten-up Dr. Sara knocks on Daddy's cell door and Daddy looks up from her conversation with the other ladies by asking with elaborate politesse, "To what do we owe the honor?" Dr. Sara says she changed her mind and she'd like to join the family. Agatha snarks that Daddy's changed her mind, and Daddy says, "Squirt's right. I recently have rolled up my welcome mat. Peace." Daddy has a delivery not unlike the late Mitch Hedburg's, which makes everything she says unintentionally comedic. Dr. Sara's not laughing, though. She quietly heads over to Daddy and pleads to be let into the family. Daddy orders everyone out and says, "I would love that. I would -- sit down -- I really would. But see, it's not as easy as just saying 'I do.'" Daddy takes off a snake pendant she is wearing and explains, "See, you're making a commitment to a family. It's something you gotta prove." And Dr. Sara's intent of proof? She has to agree to be branded with the now-heated-up snake. (Agatha's been busy with a butane lighter.) And we get to see it in gory detail, because it's not a Prison Break production unless some girl is getting physically brutalized at regular intervals.
