Detainees are freed from their cells and rounded up. They look dubious, even when they're told that Thomas is freeing them. This really doesn't look like a prison. I don't know what it looks like.
White House Situation Room. A general uses technogibberish to explain why they don't know anything. And that new Chief of Staff says that Sterling hasn't reported in yet. Simon (back at work! I guess it didn't take all that much time to bust Michael out of jail and meet with Sean and Leila in Missouri or wherever) says that Michael probably got to one of the guards.
Senator Lewis meets with President Martinez and is outraged at the secret prison he's keeping in Alaska. He says that it's illegal for her to have that information, which means that the only way to get it is breaking the law. So, wait. You're saying that the only way to break the law is to do something illegal? Man, this guy's a legal dynamo. No wonder he's president! She wants to know everything about the prisoners. He says that it's a matter of national security, so she grandstands at him. He tells her that she wasn't even elected, and that Alaskans are fat and poor. Also, "Leave matters of National Security to those of us with actual credentials." You know, he's wanted to go public on more than one occasion. There's still no real reason he shouldn't. I don't see why he has to insult Alaska's obesity rates. They certainly aren't her fault, unless she handed out Twinkies as soon as she took office a day or so ago. Anyway, it's cold up there. You need a layer of subcutaneous fat.
