We see presumed Cooper doing the not-used-to-jogging jog, and by the time he gets to the next phone, he's built up enough momentum to knock an addled homeless guy away from the receiver and listen to Lincoln's next edict: "See the fountain? Get in." Presumed Cooper has a look like, "You've got to be kidding me." (Also amusing: this is supposed to be taking place in mid-summer, in Chicago, yet you can occasionally see presumed Cooper's breath as it hits the air.) Presumed Cooper wanders into the fountain; the two tailing suits stop and watch. One says, "They want to drown the mikes in case we bugged him."
The sodden presumed Cooper is walking down a sidewalk outside the fountain when a kid comes up and hands him a cell phone: "Hey, mister, this is for you." Presumed Cooper says he's not interested, but the kid corrects him: "I ain't selling it -- some dude gave me $20 to give it to the first wet guy I see." The phone rings, and Lincoln tells presumed Cooper, "See the building across the street from you? Go inside." Presumed Cooper snaps, "This is getting ridiculous. I've done everything you asked. If you want to meet me --" "I've been burned way too many times, Mr. Green," Linc interrupts. He orders presumed Cooper to go inside and keep the phone pressed to his ear. Presumed Cooper balefully glares, then hops to.
One of the tailing suit's mobile rings, and he tells Agent Kim that presumed Cooper is about to head inside a museum, and since there are men stationed all over it, Burrows and/or Scofield will not be going anywhere. Kim smiles. He picks up his mobile...
And we cut to Mahone, who audibly groans when he hears the phone ring. Kim tells him, "Get to Ebert park. I have men on Scofield and Burrows." Mahone is frankly incredulous: "Ebert Park?" Yeah, why didn't Siskel get a park named after him first? Then he asks, "What the hell is Scofield doing in Chicago?" Kim says, "You're asking why the deer walked into your crosshairs? Just take the shot, Mahone." Mahone says softly that he's on it. Then Kim changes the subject: "Franklin... " Mahone hedges, "I'm using Franklin to help me find Scofield." Kim smugly points out that since he has Scofield in his sights now, there is no need to keep C-Note alive.
We get a brief shot of Mahone's despairing expression, and when Mahone walks into the room where C-Note's cooling his heels, he stands and stares at C-Note with a mixture of agitation and resignation. Then he channels the tactic he used with Haywire, and says, "You know, if I were in your situation. Everything you've done, every decision you've made, I'd have done the same thing." C-Note looks up, and a visibly upset Mahone says, "You're a good man, a good father." Then his expression becomes implacable as he explains, "There's, um, been a change of plans. It looks like I'm not going to need your help after all." C-Note sighs and says, "So you found Scofield." "My colleagues are getting pretty close, yeah," Mahone says. He starts, "So... " and C-Note holds out his hands and says drolly, "So I guess you can set me free, then." Mahone silently shoots that down, and C-Note's face goes dark as he whispers, "Of course not."
