And now, we've got a big ol' convoy, rocking through the... day. Michael is passing his time by giving Mahone the Blue Steel. Sadly, its efficacy is reduced when it passes through two layers of glass. Mahone's phone rings and Kim brightly informs him that he's off the hook, as Kellerman and his team will be moving in right outside Albuquerque. Mindful of the debt he owes the One World Conspiracy, Mahone asks, "Where does that leave us?" It leaves him on the hook to shoot Kellerman in the melee that will invariably accompany whatever it is Kellerman has planned. Ah, Agent Kim, figuring out how to have your corpses and keep living too. Mahone is not too keen on this. Kim verbally bats him around for a little bit before cajoling, "Let Kellerman take care of this. Let him be our Oswald." "Then that makes me Jack Ruby," Mahone objects. "Ruby was acting alone. You've got the support of the United States government behind you, Alex," Kim replies. Mahone opens his mouth to begin explaining how the U.S. government fits in with all those conspiracy theories surrounding Kennedy's death, but Kim quickly changes the subject and gets him off the line. I guess when you work for the One World Conspiracy, you get tired of discussing the runners-up. Kim turns back to Colonel Kurtz there and nervously promises him that soon, "It'll be back to business as usual." The colonel gives him a look like Good. This has distracted me from the usual work of dispensing polonium to the right people, leaking memos that smack-talk foreign heads of state, and tying up the supply of TMX Elmos.
Meanwhile, inside the van, Linc is asking Michael if he has any regrets. Michael does not seize this moment to crack the tension with his best Edith Piaf impersonation. Instead, he merely replies, "You'd have done the same thing for me." There is a tiny, awkward silence before Linc finally says, " ... You think?" Heh. Anyway, Michael answers that he doesn't regret what he did, just how it turned out.
Then, because that's something of a conversational downer, the guys decide they'd like to check out the scenery for a while. Linc escapes to the world of flashbacks, wherein we discover that one of the reasons Michael kept moving from foster home to foster home was because Linc's delinquent behavior kept getting them booted. He returns to the here and now to moodily note, "It seems like I've been getting you in trouble my whole life." Michael counters, "You pulled me out of some too." Because that was an uncomfortable emotional moment for everyone, both of them decide to look somewhere else -- and happen to notice the padlock that is supposed to fasten their shackles to the floor of the van is wide open. Michael looks around as if to convey, What sort of conspiracy-based hijinks can we expect now?
