Meanwhile, in Birmingham, Alabama, we come to a doctor's office, where T-Bag is gazing upon the sheepskin of one Dr. Erik Stammel. We then get the doctor who, from the back, looks exactly like T-Bag. It's the same blocking trick they used to use on the Patty Duke Show whenever Patty and Cathy had to be in the same scene, and for one wild and glorious moment, I think, Holy cow, they've given T-Bag a psychotic break. The nasty, killing, I-come-from-tainted-blood nutcase side is about to have a conversation with his civilized side, and we'll get a reveal that shows us how southern-gothically crazy Theodore has gone. O, delightful! And as T-Bag says, "I've got a few things I need to get off my chest" and the music swells ominously, I can only hold my breath in cautious anticipation.
Back in Chicago, Linc has finally wrapped up his conversation with Jane. He's got a name -- Cooper Green, the former deputy attorney general. "He spends his time between D.C., Chicago and New York. He's been an ally of Dad's for forever. We find him, we've got a shot," Linc explains. Michael heads over and asks how L.J. is; Linc curtly replies that he's doing all right, then changes the subject by walking away.
We cut to Cooper Green's secretary in the Chicago office. She's pertly telling Michael (on the phone) that Green isn't in at the time. Michael implores, "This is very important. I have information regarding the sons of Aldo Burrows." We see the secretary shift demeanors; she is now all business, and very cagey. She asks, "Aldo Burrows?" Within seconds, she assures Michael she's reaching Green.
We cut to some disgruntled-looking, middle-aged guy in a suit, who just happens to be strolling around a park in Chicago. Michael introduces himself, and Green says, "I knew your father, and I knew what happened to him. I'm sorry -- he was a good man trying to do good things." When, I ask you, when would Michael have had time to call the Aldo Burrows next-of-kin phone tree and let everyone know what happened before the fall hiatus? Of course, you can see Aldo's cairn from space, so maybe that's how Green knew? Or maybe this guy is a shifty imposter. But Michael doesn't think so: "We have something." Green quickly guesses it's the tape and adds, "I know a lot of people have been looking for it. What's on the tape?"
Michael tells Green that if he wants to find out, he must do the following: put on a blue suit and red tie, then meet at the bronze statue which marks the southwest corner of Ebert park. (I was like, "Ebert as in the Chicago-based critic? Nice one.) When Michael clicks off, we get the idea he and Linc are about to embark on some plan. Dr. Sara snaps out of the catatonic trance she's been in all episode to tell Michael "good luck." They squeeze hands. For these two, that is akin to the clinch on those posters for The Notebook. After Michael takes off, Linc assures her this will work. Dr. Sara nervously fidgets with her dad's humidor key.
