It's visiting time for C-Note and Kacee. While he sniffles, she fills him in on Dede's recovery. C-Note is teary, and Kacee tells him, "Because of you -- she's going to be okay because of you." It's nice to see she doesn't hold a grudge from being thrown in jail. In fact, when C-Note fervently asks for her forgiveness, she tenderly, quickly responds, "Of course I forgive you!" C-Note asks her, "You know when Dede was, like, four. She wanted to watch this video. I kept telling her, 'After the game, after the game, okay?' And she kept asking, and kept asking and I lost my patience, and I snapped at her real bad. And she, uh, went over into the corner and I didn't even go over and say anything --" Kacee sensibly asks, "Why are you getting yourself upset over something that happened years ago, baby? Years ago." C-Note overrides her, tearily telling her, "I want you to tell her that I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. And that my baby girl means everything to me. Just tell her that she means everything to me, okay? You tell her that every day." A baleful buzz ends visiting time. Kacee tries desperately to comfort the sobbing C-Note before leaving, reluctantly. Once she's gone, C-Note is drained.
We cut a shot of people cheering for an extension of Madame Evil's regime. Then we zoom in on the actual crowd, then up to a rooftop where Kellerman, back in Secret Service drag, is approaching another agent. After waving his badge, he chats with another agent for a second or two before killing him. O, you magnificent bastard.
Meanwhile, Mahone's back to doing what he loves best: peering into the wine-dark strategizing of his Mental Mind Mate, Michael. And within seconds, merely by standing next to the fountain where False Cooper took his earlier swim, Mahone has figured out that Michael and Linc are staying at the hotel right near the park.
Inside that hotel, Cooper's just heard the recording (again: too awesome for mere mortal ears like yours or mine to process) and he asks if the fugitives understand what they have. Cooper then records the unique data from the memory key so it can't be swapped out for any other. Then he checks the file -- apparently, in looking at the recording, the date stamp only reflects the date the recording was copied, not the date it was actually recorded. Cooper explains to the baffled crowd, "Without a time stamp of exactly when this conversation took place, we can't prove that this is Terence Steadman talking after you supposedly killed him. This could have happened a year before his funeral. It can't be authenticated, so it can't be admitted to any court as evidence." Linc is not taking this well. Michael stops taking it well when Cooper adds, "Legally speaking, this tape is useless."
